The Magical Santa Experience 2021
Santa Sessions are sold out for 2021 - come back next year!
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 21st!

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.
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.
