Santa’s Magical Experience is the ultimate Santa session! It is an interactive, creative, fine art portrait session that takes place in our studio on a custom nostalgic set resembling Santa’s workshop. The children spend about an HOUR with Santa and have real interactions with him through a storytelling session. There are a lot of surprises and magic along the way! Afterwards, heirloom quality products (including Christmas cards) will be available to showcase your child’s time with Santa. We create true custom artwork for your family that will be passed down through the generations. Let us capture this experience with Santa while your children are still young and believe in the magic of the season!
Our studio is located in Fort Mill, SC. We have clients that travel from all over South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia and Virginia to bring their children and grandchildren to our Santa’s Magical Experience.
Yes, you will need an appointment for your Santa Session. We have limited dates in November! You don’t have to wait in long lines for hours and your child will have the very unique experience of meeting Santa in Santa’s very own workshop. This is a private session for you and your family. It is wonderful to watch as we create the interactive story line that your children immerse themselves in. It is pure magic to watch it unfold!
Our set is able to accommodate up to 4 children comfortably, but more littles can be squeezed in if necessary, to get cozy with Santa. Each child will also receive a gift from Santa for your child to keep. This is a very special heirloom that will capture the legacy of your family for generations to come. Our professional Santa is very good at encouraging each child to interact with him throughout the story line that we’ve created, keeping them engaged and excited about each of the 10 or more activities
The session fee for Santa’s Magical Experience is $150. this covers your time with Santa. Our collections begin at $399. There are 5 collections to choose from or we can customize and build your own collection together. Our sessions always begin with Cookies and Milk with Santa. This eases your child into the session without them being nervous. Cookies and Milk with Santa is a 15 minute session with Santa. If we are creating a storybook for your family or an image box collection, then more time is spent with Santa in order to capture the artwork needed to create these beautiful pieces. This is what to expect for your experience:
A personalized private interactive experience with our real bearded professional Santa Claus while we photograph the interactions between Santa and your children. This is not your typical sit on Santa’s lap, look at the camera and smile. This session is full of magic brought to life by Santa as he encourages each child to participate in each storyline we have created.
If you have commissioned us to create a storybook, then Santa’s Magical Gift Set, which includes a Wish Book for each child to communicate their Christmas wishes to Santa can be added on for $40/per child.
