Palatine Holiday Photos | Santa Experience Mini Session 2023

It is already time to start thinking of the holidays! And I’m SO excited to share that Santa will be visiting our private studio in Palatine once again this year for our Santa Experience mini sessions. Santa has a lot of experience working with little ones and loves taking photos with them. I have worked with him 3 times now and am so excited that he is available to visit again this year. It really is a special experience for babies and children to meet Santa but there is nothing like meeting him in a private session in the studio. Santa can give your little ones all of the attention without any distractions like mall shoppers, helpers, or other children and their parents waiting in line for their turn whether patiently or impatiently. Your child will have Santa all to themselves! This truly is a magical memory for them.

My 3 year old and 7 year old were able to experience this last year and just had the best time with Santa. My little one cuddled up to him and made a new best friend. He took the best photos because he was with Santa. He can be a little sensitive to noises and distractions and this was the perfect opportunity for him. I could not believe how relaxed and happy he was through the whole experience. I love that I can offer this to my clients and new families too.

What is a Santa Experience?

A Santa Experience is more than just a photo or two with Santa like at a mall or other Santa visitor site locally. It is a time where a baby or child can get to know Santa. Young children can ask him questions. They can hold his magic key. Santa will read a book to them. Santa will joke around with them and knows how to make them more comfortable in a new setting. Finally Santa will end their visit with a special gift that they can open with him. And then when the experience is over at the studio, you will have a selection of beautifully professionally taken and edited images to enjoy forever! It really allows the experience to be alive forever as when you see those photos you will remember your child’s experience with Santa. There is truly nothing like it!

What is included in the Santa Experience mini session?

Each child or children that participates in the Santa Experience this year will have 10 private minutes with Santa to talk to him, give him high fives, be held by him (if a baby), read to by him, and be given a gift by him. After the session, I will send you a selection of 7+ digital files in a private online gallery to view. 5 digital files will be included in your Santa Experience. Most participants will have the option to purchase more if they choose. There are also a variety of products available to purchase from your final selected gallery such as prints, holiday cards and ornaments.

When and where does the Santa Experience mini session take place?

The Santa Experience mini session will take place on Saturday, December 2nd from 9-11am by appointment only. The appointment times will be 10 minutes. You are welcome to schedule all of your children at once for this event. After 2 children there is a $15 fee for each additional child. I also highly recommend scheduling 2 sessions for multiple children so that they have more individual time with Santa. Either way, you will receive photos of your children together and separate with Santa if you wish.

Our Santa Experience mini session will take place in our private studio with a special holiday backdrop. The studio is located at 117 W. Slade Street in downtown Palatine behind My Flavor It Place.
