Portraits with Mr. & Mrs. Claus $275 (Retainer Only)

*Retainer / Session Fee Only*

Journey to the North Pole

Unlike the typical “Mall Santa” scenario, where long lines of restless kids endure impatience only to be rushed through a brief encounter, our approach is quite different. Each child is given Santa’s undivided attention, within a warm, serene, and inviting setting. Santa delights in reading to the children, sharing tales of his reindeer companions, and authentically imbuing the spirit of Christmas magic into every young visitor.

In addition to Santa’s presence, we’re thrilled to share that this year, we have an exciting addition. Mrs. Claus herself will be making the journey from the North Pole to oversee her very own interactive ‘kitchen’ area, where she can engage with the children in delightful baking activities!

This experience promises to etch lasting memories for your little one and yields cherished images for generations to come.
