Step inside the studio and be transported to a Winter Wonderland!

Take a family portrait in our Christmas scene 

and then be whisked into the Winter Wonderland.

The Winter Wonderland scene has fluffy snow,

an igloo and soft snowballs (just to name a few).

Have a few laughs, cuddles and and fun before....

The Details

 Book your Winter Experience today! We have a limited number of sessions available with Santa so be sure to book early if you want one of those select times!! He is a busy busy man this time of year but he has graciously agreed to give us a couple Saturdays to see his friends in Kansas! 


At the Winter 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. Once you arrive for your appointment, you will come into the studio and get a picture in the Christmas room scene (with or without Santa depending on your appointment) and then you will be off to get a few fun filled pictures in the Winter scene! Laugh and create memories as you take pictures tossing snowballs, playing by the igloo, sled and so much more! The possibilities are endless! After the Winter Experience scene, it will be time to step outside where holiday music will fill the air. Grab some hot cocoa made with hot cocoa bombs and step onto the horse drawn carriage. The horse drawn carriage will carry your family around town to view some Christmas decorations while you cuddle up and make memories.

Fun facts and info

*The Winter Experience is currently held in Wamego, KS at Memories by Jen Bailey's studio. The studio is 11 miles from Manhattan, KS. or 6 miles from Wamego. The Winter Experience will be on Dec. 5th, 6th, 11th, 12th, 13th and 19th. 

Santa will be at the Winter Experience on Saturdays until 5 pm.

-Take your picture with Santa, tell him what you would like for Christmas and 

  who knows...Santa might even even share some of his magic before you head into the snow scene. Please note this is not the Santa Experience offered in Nov. by Memories by Jen Bailey. This is just 5 minutes to take a few pictures with Santa and tell him what you would like.  

The portrait session will be 5-10 minutes and the horse drawn carriage ride will be an additional 10-15 minutes. I would plan around 30 minutes for your experience by the time you get your hot cocoa, have your picture taken in both scenes (while making memories!!) and then stepping onto the carriage. 

*Families may bring grandparents if they would like to be included in the pictures and family fun. If you would like to do this experience with friends, please book your sessions back to back as we have to follow guidelines for inside the studio, but we can arrange for you to be on the same carriage ride together (while still having some distance).


All of this is what awaits you at the Memories by Jen Bailey Winter Experience. 

*Covid-info: The studio sets and the horse drawn carriage seating area will be sanitized after each family leaves the area. Appointment times are required to make sure that we are keeping people socially distanced and can continue to clean in between each family. Please let Jen know if you are not feeling well so we can keep everyone happy and healthy.
