Come join us at our studio on Oct 23rd & 24th as we celebrate the Magic of the Christmas Season. Your private Santa Experience will include the magic of our real Santa, without waiting in line at the Mall! Book your time to come to our studio and listen to a story with our Elf while enjoying a warm hot chocolate & cookies, a special photo session (parents welcome) and visit and photos with Santa. You will also receive a special letter and gift from Santa to take home. Our Santa has many years of experience making the magic of Christmas come alive. Let your child hand deliver their letter to Santa or put it in our special child-sized Santa mailbox.
This is not your average mall Santa - we've got the REAL DEAL! Our Santa is truly amazing and can warm the hearts of even the most reserved children. Let them have a real, one-on-one experience with a Santa who wants to make their wishes come true! Come away with professionally edited gorgeous Santa photos, not the rushed in and out photos you need to stand in line for.
Please ensure you have read the FAQs at the bottom of the page so that you're fully informed and prepared for such an exciting photo session! Sessions are limited to immediate family however, if you have neighbours or additional relatives, please consider booking two sessions back to back so that you can each share a few minutes to capture some combined photos.
Offering 2 Holiday set designs - one room for Christmas family photos (new 2022 set) and Santa's Living Room with a chance to visit with Santa and have your photo taken with him as well.

Why Christmas in October?
Well, Santa has a lot going on in December, all those toys to get ready and lists to check! Also, this gives us lots of time to get the images edited and back to you so you can order Christmas cards, and prints to give as gifts. Plus won't it be nice to hear what your child wants for Christmas in October to help kick off the holiday shopping list? Get them to write their secret list to Santa (make sure they sign it) and when he takes it I am sure we can email you a copy if you'd like a peek!
What to wear?
Some children will wear pajamas and some will be wearing classic clothing - lots of reds, silver + gold. Either way, your images will be filled with magic!
What if my child is afraid of Santa?
No worries! Our Santa is truly amazing! We have many tried and true strategies for earning your child's trust and adoration. However, if your child would prefer to sit in the big chair without Santa or have Mom or Dad sit in too, that is absolutely fine!
Do you issue refunds if I have a scheduling conflict?
As much as we try to accommodate our client's needs throughout the year, our Santa Sessions are final sale as clients carefully select their portrait time to best suit their busy schedules and other clients may have been turned away. You are welcome to gift the session to a friend or family member.
What if my child(ren) is sick?
Unfortunately, we cannot allow children with fever or runny nose to attend as we have other children including newborns with fresh immune systems also visiting Santa and kindly ask that you respectfully notify us that you are unable to attend.
Can adults be in the photo?
Yes, we of course have time restraints but once your little ones have had the time we need for their photos and time permits we are happy to do family shots.
Can we combine multiple families in one Santa Session?
No. Unfortunately, we have found that it reduces the quality time each child receives and we ask that you register just immediate siblings. Many of our families book back-to-back Sessions so they can experience the event together.
* Studio at Jane and Dundas west. Lots of free Parking is located in the lot behind the studio (the entrance is at the back) or you can park in front on Dundas (please check parking signs)
* Please arrive with your little one(s) already dressed as we're only able to provide you the 20 minutes scheduled for your family out of respect to families that are after your session.
*Backdrop and set decor may be revised but will be similar in style to samples.
