The Experience

Christmas With Santa fine art sessions are unlike anything your children have ever experienced! We do not just sit them on Santa's lap to capture a forced smile out of them but instead allow them to spend time with Santa for an hour in his workshop. They get to eat cookies and drink milk with Santa, find their names in the Nice Book, receive a special gift from Santa's bag, answer a phone call from the North Pole and Santa will even read to them the true meaning of Christmas. Through these interactions with Santa, we capture their true excitement without them even realizing it! Your children will cherish these wonderful memories with Santa and you will have gorgeous pieces of fine art to enjoy their magical candid moments for a lifetime. We even take the stress off of you by providing the night gowns and pajamas for your children to wear. They can even bring their favorite stuffed animal or toy to personalize their experience. After the session, you are invited back for a private viewing of the edited artwork where we help you customize your print order.         

Santa's Magical Gift

Your children will receive their very own Santa's Magical Wish Book Set that includes a woven red Magical Handbag just like Santa's toy bag with a leather wish book inside.

Prior to Christmas, the child writes his or her Christmas wishes into the Wish Book. The child’s elders then each take a page and in their own handwriting, enter something they want the child to never forget. This back-to-back collection of wisdom will be powerful and heartfelt words-to-live-by. Now the child can communicate with Santa from year to year.

On Christmas Day the bag is opened and there is a handwritten Clue Note from adorable treasure hunt ensues for the child to find their gift from Santa, this is something fun the child looks forward to year after year. At the end of Christmas day, the child fills out a Thank You Note and places it into the Magic Bag. The day after Christmas, the note is gone and Santa has received the child's thank you encouraging good manners..       

Nostalgic Christmas Art

Our Nostalgic Christmas Art is something extraordinary that you can not find anywhere. We help create a new legacy of your child with Santa Claus that you will receive as a family heirloom to enjoy and pass down through the generations. Our artwork includes large-framed wall art that beautifully hangs in your living room, dining room, foyer, or even your child's room. Our storybooks feature your child and Santa Claus through their own Christmas story that your child will love to read every year. Your family and friends will love receiving our exquisite Christmas cards that are uniquely created with your own child and Santa Claus. No better way to continue enjoying your Nostalgic Art and even as gifts to others then on our coffee mugs, metal prints and Christmas ornaments.             

Wall Art

Imagine walking into your living room with a 40 inch canvas framed in 4 inches of solid wood hanging above your fireplace with your child eating cookies with Santa Claus, sitting around the dining table with a framed picture of the children praying with Santa, and your child waking up each morning with the positive affirmation of seeing a picture of him/her finding their name in the Nice Book with Santa Claus. Our wall art comes in either metal or canvas. The metal actually glows on its own from ambient light and lasts a lifetime since it can't easily decay. We have all styles of frames to choose from to perfectly match your decor. Our canvas wrapped wall art has an oil painting finish that gives it that nostalgic look. When properly cared for, the canvases lasts for generations. We can frame them just the same as the metal art.              

Story Books

Our story books feature your child's dream of going to see Santa Claus at his workshop at 5 minutes to midnight before Christmas. The story that unfolds throughout the book is of your child praying with Santa before eating cookies and drinking milk together, finding their name in the Nice Book, seeing their wish list written out in the language of Elf-abet, finding their magical gift from Santa in his bag, magically painting toys and even learning about the meaning of Christmas as Santa reads to them from his book. From this we create a personalized Premium 10 x 10 story book wrapped in canvas with thick pages embossed in gold that comes in an image wrapped box. The book itself feels amazing to hold and flip through. How great is it that your child gets to enjoy reading a Christmas story that actually features THEM with Santa Claus?! Their story book becomes a family heirloom that will be passed down to their children and their children for generations. We offer a Standard Book and a Premium Book.            

Christmas Cards

Our Christmas cards are like no other that you will find to send out to your friends and family because they feature YOUR children with Santa Claus in a way that no one has ever seen before! Our cards are 5 x 7 in size and are made out of soft touch laminate framed in gold foil which just feels and looks amazing to hold. They come in sets of 25 & 50 and feature four of your favorite pictures from the session.
