What is a Santa Experience?

The 2020 Santa Experience at the K Thaemert Photography Studio is a time for your child to experience the Magic of the Season.  It is 45 minutes in a private portrait session and a unique experience with Santa; it is time to play in our child-friendly Christmas set, time to talk with Santa, to share a wish list.  Get a chance to view Santa’s Naughty/Nice list first hand.  Which side are you on?  It is time for games, cookies, and a little bit of magic too!*

*Not all activities are appropriate for all ages, but we have plenty for everyone to experience some Magic and fun.

The Santa Experience is much, much more than 2 minutes on Santa’s lap after a long wait in a mall line, and a mall-quality picture.  It is a chance for your family to recapture the magic of Christmas all while we create beautiful heirloom portraits for you and for future generations.

We have only a handful of spots available this season, so book now!

Is there an age requirement? No, any age, young or not can be in the photos.  With 14 years of experience as a baby photographer, we have the tools and props to work with all ages.

What do you suggest for outfits? The image above is the current Santa Set.  Consider these options: Christmas jammies, old-fashioned jammies, Sunday best, cutsie Holiday outfits…

Can we bring a gift for Santa to give my child? Yes!  Absolutely.  Please wrap it and bring it inside another bag so that your child does not see it.

My child has a “LIST” for Santa, should we bring it? 100%, yes.  Santa would definitely like to see the list.

What happens if my baby cries? It happens… we have quite a few opportunities for your baby to interact with our set.  It is perfectly okay for mom & dad to get in some images while Santa is there.  You know what… it will be just fine.

How many people can be in a photo? We can accommodate a family, but an extended family will be too many on this small set.  From edge to edge, it is about 12-feet wide, that includes props, trees, chairs etc.

What do Portraits Cost? We have a wide range of products for gift giving, personal display and heirloom.  Print-portrait packages start at $250. A la carte is also available.  CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE SANTA EXPERIENCE PRICE GUIDE.
