Waiting for Santa – Fine Art Christmas Portraits

Christmas Portraits in Santa’s Workshop

This past week we snuck into Santa’s Workshop to show off what it will look like when Santa comes to visit very soon! Only a few of our Magical Santa Experience portrait sessions remain available and this will be the only weekend this year for Santa at the Always Images Studio. We can’t wait for these special moments with Santa for classic Christmas portraits. Each Magical Santa Experience includes a personalized album with beautifully edited images as a family keepsake. And we also give back to Dustin’s Place from each Magical Santa session booked as part of our annual Santa Session Charity event. Want to book a session for your children now?

What Makes Christmas Portraits so Magical?

A letter from Santa arrives to your home to invite your little ones to a visit with Santa at the Always Images studio. The sheer delight of this helps to build the excitement for the upcoming Christmas portraits in Santa’s Workshop. As seen here, my children were delighted to find a letter with their name on it inviting them to see Santa in a few weeks! Since we are still waiting for Santa, they decided to help him out a little bit!

The Night Before Christmas

Santa always reads part of “The Night Before Christmas” as part of his visit with all of the children in the Magical Santa Christmas portraits. It is always a favorite moment of wonder.

Being Santa’s Helpers

Santa always needs a little extra help in the Magical Santa Christmas portraits, so he has toys to help prep and paint with the children who visit. Being like elves brings such focus to the moment and sweetness. Everyone loves to help Santa in his workshop!

Finishing Up with Milk and Cookies

We always try to capture variety in our Fine Art Christmas portraits. Milk & cookies with Santa or another little treat is the best. We can’s wait for Santa to come visit very soon! Don’t wait to book your Santa portrait session, as these will sell out!
