The Magical Santa Experience 2023
It's not just a photo session, it's the magic of Santa.
At our magical Santa sessions, your child will be transported to Santa's workshop for an experience of a lifetime. We will introduce your child to Santa slowly and gently, so they can approach him on their own terms. Your kids will help the Big Guy paint a toy, find their names on the Naughty&Nice list, share a cookie and snuggle up with Santa to enjoy a book. Santa will even have a gift for your little one 's delight!
For parents, these sessions mean no mall lines or crowds. No watching your child cry when they're thrown unceremoniously onto Santa's lap . And, you get the perfect picture for your Christmas Card.
Only on Nov 26th, 2023!

Meet Our Santa Claus
So much of the magic of Christmas is wrapped up in the wonder and mystery of Santa Claus. Our Santa personifies the joy, love, and gentleness we all expect of a storybook Santa. His long white beard is real, as is his jolly laugh and rosy cheeks. We were very lucky to book him for these sessions.
Santa has lots of tricks up his sleeve to help uncertain little ones get comfortable. In the past, he has performed for the City of Independence tree lighting, Powell Gardens, and Children's Mercy.
Did I mention you can have a real, physical storybook featuring your child? It tells the whole story of their magical visit. It's perfect for reading on Christmas eve. Flip through a few pages of our Christmas storybook! Go full screen to see it best.
This session will be a guided story experience for your children. Santa will lead them through a story about how he got behind on painting his toys and how the children help him catch up!
All of the activities your child does with Santa come together to make an heirloom Christmas storybook for your family to love forever.
The purchase of this beautiful hard covered book is optional. There will be a sample at our studio for you to view.
The storybook costs $200. With the purchase of a storybook, you will also receive all 8 digital images used to create the book. When your digital gallery is delivered, you can choose whether or not to purchase the storybook.
Book Your Sesson
You can book your session online! Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions or want my help booking.
The full session cost is $275. A $100 deposit is required to book your session. The remaining $175 will be due at your session.
Where is the session held?Our in-home studio is located at 5813 W 155th St, Overland Park, KS 66223
What if I want more than 4 images?Additional images are available for $40 each. You may also buy your full gallery for $120. Depending how well your little ones interacted with Santa, there will be around 7-10 total images available in your gallery.
Can we get a full family picture?Yes! This setup is perfect for your family Christmas card picture.
What should we wear?I recommend solid colored clothes. Avoid busy patterns, text and graphics. Red, white, black, or navy will all photograph well on this set. I have the red over-jackets you see in the photographs are available for your family to use during the session. They fit sizes 4T - 10. I also have lots of gorgeous Christmas gowns and white tuxes! You can dress up in your "Sunday best" or go more casual. We recommend at least one parent come dressed to be in the pictures, just in case one of your children isn't comfortable being in the set without you.
When will our images be delivered?All Santa galleries will be delivered by Dec 12th. Galleries will be edited in the order they're shot, so the earlier in the day you book, the sooner you'll get your pictures!
What if my child is afraid of Santa?The 15 minute session is long enough to allow us time to slowly and gently introduce your child to Santa. We have lots of tricks to help encourage kids to interact with Santa, including cookies! If our tricks don't work, we'll ask a parent to come into the scene to hold their child. So please come dressed to be in the photos just in case! For kids who continue to be uncomfortable with Santa, we will take Santa out of the set to get pictures of just your child. We've never had a session where we didn't get a great gallery in the end ::knock on wood::
Is the session fee refundable?Due to the extremely limited availability and the cost of bringing Santa to the studio, we are unable to offer refunds for these sessions.
Can we bring our pet?Yes, pets are welcome in our studio!
Can our friends or cousins be in our pictures?Each session includes immediate family only. However, if two groups book sessions we can schedule them back to back and get pictures together.
What ages of kids are these sessions for?These sessions are suitable for children of any age. We've had babies as young as 4 months and teenagers attend these sessions.
These Santa portraits are finished in an illustrative style that fits the magic of Christmas. When your children see their Santa photos, they'll feel like they're looking at a storybook where they're the main character!
