Pictures with Santa

Waiting at the mall and big box stores for hours to see Santa for 0.72927625 seconds isn’t fun for anyone. Each year the big guy in red leaves the North Pole and visits our studio for just a few hours each November. It truly is a wonderful way to kick off the holiday season, and fully books within 24 hours. I release details each September over on Instagram, so follow along. If you missed out this year’s Santa at the Studio event, you missed a good one!
