“The Santa Experience” 2021

Your children get a private visit with Santa, and you get beautiful portraits!

We’ve designed our Santa Experience to be just that… a truly unique time for children to enjoy extended time alone with Santa Claus, where they can play, relax, hear stories, and really experience the joy and happiness Santa and Christmas are meant to be.

“They are simply amazing! Wow. Thank you so much!! I can’t stop looking at them. The kids had an amazing time and haven’t stopped talking about it.”

Your child will visit with the big guy himself while we create timeless portraits of them together.

This is so different than the usual visit with Santa, where long lines and feeling rushed is common. We have plenty of time for even the shyest children to warm up and relax. Our Santa is a master at distracting and getting kids involved in stories, which helps soothe their nerves. The kids who have a million questions for Santa can finally get answers, since they have what seems like all the time in the world to spend with him.

“The kids (and mom and dad) had so much fun with Santa. Thank you!”

This relaxed session is set at Santa’s North Pole workshop.

With plenty of time to enjoy their visit with Santa, your kids will be able to chat with him and hear stories about life at the North Pole, why naughty kids get coal in their stocking (it’s actually a good thing!), maybe sing a Christmas carol or two, and even tell him what they want for Christmas.

Far from the long lines at the mall and without feeling rushed by the people waiting behind you, your child can visit with Santa one-to-one in our private studio. What a magical experience for your children!

Santa Claus brings joy, happiness, and love, and this unique experience, up close, personal, and fun, will transport children into a land of wonder they’ll remember fondly.

“Thanks for making my grandson’s visit with Santa so special. He tells me about it every time I see him.”

Is this the REAL Santa?

Before your Santa Experience, you’ll provide us with details about the children so Santa can weave these little facts into the conversation with them. Kids are blown away when Santa knows what they like, talks about their pets, and congratulates them on something they’ve done well – whether it’s getting good marks at school or being a wonderful helper at home!

“This is the REAL Santa! He knows all about me!!”

Many of our families have asked if we are doing these in 2021, and yes we are!

We’ve designed your Whitesell Photography Santa Experience to include safety protocols including one-way flow within the studio, ample separation between families, etc.
