‘Tis the season to be jolly AND get holiday gifts that always thrill! The Santa Experience is the perfect opportunity to create family heirlooms to decorate your home, get your holiday cards done and select holiday photo gifts for your favorite family members. Book your Santa Experience today! We have a limited number of experiences available so schedule now to reserve your magical time.
At the Santa Experience, we try to make this as memorable and joyful as possible. With scheduled appointment times, you can wait in the comfort of my studio surrounded by your family instead of waiting in a long line. We also take the guesswork out of finding the perfect clothes since Memories by Jen Bailey provides the pajamas for your child to wear during their session. Just show up, let us know your child's size and grab some hot chocolate as you wait for Santa to show up from the North Pole. Once the barn doors open, step into Santa's workshop and watch the wonder of your child come alive! You will love watching your child have milk and cookies with Santa, find their name on his "nice" list, receive a magical gift from Santa, and so much more!
While you are here, Jen will be creating priceless works of art of your child's visit with Santa. We want these pieces to become part of your family's holiday tradition that your children will love reliving year after year. Imagine your child helping you hang up their Santa Portrait on the wall after putting up the tree and then snuggling up to read about their Santa Experience featuring their memories, experiences and images from when they visited Santa!

*Covid-info: We have always cleaned in between each appointment. This will not change. We will take your temperature before seeing Santa. If the state gets shut down again and we are not able to have the event on the scheduled date, we will reschedule or move your appointment to next year. Jen will contact you if this happens to see which you prefer. (hopefully it won't be an issue).
