Sessions 2022

Join us at Santa's enchanted workshop!

Come join Santa at his workshop for a visit like no other. Your child will check for their name on Santa’s list, help Santa with the toys, and share their wish list. Then, they will have cookies and milk and read a story. We're bringing the magic you won't find anywhere else, at the perfect time to make Christmas cards that will be heirloom gifts themselves.

The Details

Let the Christmas magic begin with a personalized Santa experience they'll remember forever. Sessions are by appointment only, and last 10-15 minutes. Prior to the session, you'll fill out a quick questionnaire helping make this experience tailored to your child, including anything Santa needs to know. The magic starts with a personal scroll letter inviting your little one to visit the workshop, complete with an official wax seal!

Fine art Santa portraits are hand finished digital art pieces. We have carefully blended our finish to be unique and enhance the story of the magic of Santa. Storyline special effects are added to the finished image that are certain to exceed your expectations.

Smith Studios requires a 72-hour notice for cancellations. Clients have the option to (a) reschedule to another Santa session time  (if appointments are available), (b) transfer as credit toward a 2023 “Spring/Summer Special” session. 

***Please always let us know of any sickness in advance so we may work with you to reschedule.***

Does Santa hold infants/toddlers? What if they're crying?

That is totally up to you and your comfort level. If your preference is that Santa does not hold your newborn, infant, or toddler (especially if they're crying) we ask that a family member or guardian is prepared to sit with them for the photo. In your image selection process, we will happily include one complimentary *santa swap* if possible to edit a digital Santa in if desired. Due to the time intensive nature of these edits, additional edits are available to purchase. 

Family Photo? (with or without Santa)

This is a common question and we absolutely encourage a family photo! Especially if you think your little ones may get upset with Santa, it's a great idea to get a smiling photo without Santa first. That way, we can always use a digital edit "Santa add in". We have multiple backdrops for this purpose! However, please keep in mind that your session time is limited.

Can I print the images anywhere?

Yes, all images you have selected from your package can be downloaded, printed, and shared as you wish! (However, the watermarked images in the gallery prior to your image selection are NOT available to print or share.)

Can we include cousins or multiple families?

Please limit one family per session. If cousins or friends wish to do a session together, the limit is 3 children (especially if you are trying to get individual photos with Santa and each child). Additional time may be purchased separately.

What is the timeline from session to image delivery?

Here is a timeline of the process:
1. Session: enjoy the Santa experience
2. Within two days of your session: You will receive an online “Highlights” gallery from your session. From here, you have two days to select your 3 favorite images for the Mini Santa session, or 24 images for the Storybook session, or upgrade to a larger image package. Once you submit this, we can begin editing your fine art photographs.
3. Within 3-5 days of the previous step, a new gallery link will be shared via email with the edited images.
