Santa’s Magical Experience with Ann’s Photography
Our Santa’s Magical Experience session is an interactive creative fine art portrait Santa session incorporating an imaginative set, real interactions between your child and Santa through a storytelling session with a touch of magic! This is not your typical portrait session. Heirloom quality products will be available to showcase your child’s time with Santa. We will 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!
Santa’s Magical Experience is the ultimate Santa session! 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.
What is Santa’s Magical Experience?
There are many scenes we can create for you. This fine art experience begins with sharing cookies and milk with Santa and looking at the wish list. Depending on the collection you choose, other scenes can be added. If we are creating an image box or a storybook, we will add painting toys with magical paint, calling the North Pole to speak with one of Santa’s head Elves, searching the globe for their home and Santa’s home, finding their name on Santa’s nice list, receiving their very own special gift from Santa’s toy bag, calling Santa’s reindeer and the magical snow sled and a family portrait with Santa for your grand finale!
From this session we can create a personalized heirloom quality storybook capturing your child’s experience with Santa or image boxes and beautifully framed wall art as well as unique personalized Christmas cards, Christmas ornaments and a Christmas blanket. Give your child and YOU the memory of a lifetime!
Do I need an appointment for my Santa Session?
Yes, you will need an appointment for your Santa Session. We have limited dates in October and November located at our studio in Fort Mill, SC. You do not 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 a interactive story line that your children immerse themselves in. It is pure magic to watch it unfold.
What do my children need to wear?
We provide all the matching nightgowns and pajamas for our Santa Sessions. This is a very stylized look we have created and the finished product has a very artistic look to it. Our set has been designed for a feeling of nostalgia, days gone by. We have lots of antique toys on the set. It has a wonderfully magical look. We pay very close attention to detail to color harmony and tones which result in something very special for our clients.
Other information about Santa’s Magical Experience.
Our sets are able to accommodate a family of up to 4 children. If we are creating a storybook for you, 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 children to interact with him throughout the story line we have created, keeping them engaged and excited about every activity.
