Santa and kid interactive photoshoot

Santa is coming back to the Bay Area!

I will be hosting The Santa Experience – Bay Area’s only interactive Santa sessions- again this year on Nov 18th, 19th and 20th at the Golden Shutter Portraits Studio in Belmont.

These sessions are limited and not to be confused with “photos with Santa”! It’s truly a magical experience and will be one that your children will be talking about for the rest of the year 🙂 This Bay Area Santa Experience is customized for your child from the time you sign up for it! Every child will get an invitation from Santa in the mail first inviting them to come to see him.. then each family gets designated time slot with Santa where the kids will be reading The Night before Christmas, find their names on the naughty/nice list, have milk and bake cookies, paint with magic dust, kids can share their wishlists for gifts.. and then Santa will give them a small gift/certificate for the kids and promise to get what they’ve asked for on Christmas eve! This year, I’m also adding a second background where kids will be baking with Santa and enjoying milk with the magical cookies they “bake”! 

These Santa sessions will be held on Nov 18th, 19th and 20th. Sessions will be held in my studio in Belmont. 

Due to the nature of this custom, seasonal experience, if you need to cancel, session fees will not be refunded but can be applied towards a different session and will be available to you as credit which will expire in 12 months from date of purchase.

There are two different packages I will be offering this year:

Santa Meet n’ Greet

Due to popular demand, I’ve added a couple of slots of  Santa meet n’ greet! These are essentially posed photos with Santa and 1:1 interaction with him in my studio for 10 mins and you’ll receive 3 digital images included in your package. One slot per family (siblings can participate together in each slot). Unlike The Santa Experience, these slots are perfect for children under 2 years of age and parents are encouraged to join too! Backdrop shown below will be the backdrop for these sessions.
