Photos with Santa, The Santa Experience 2018.

North Shore Boston Photos with Santa!

UPDATE: Always a pleasure, this year was so fun with Santa! Until next year … (they go fast so contact me to get on my email list now!)

I am elated to announce my fourth annual photos-with-Santa dates for The Santa Experience: Portraits with the Big Man Himself. Trust me, this is a session you do not want to miss! Skip the lines at the mall and give your kids a one-on-one experience with Santa, resulting in one-of-a-kind magical portraits.

Scroll below Santa photos for more info.

Photos With Santa
Santa as an experience, not just photos.

If you’re thinking of heading to the mall this year for Santa pics, I have a much easier, less stressful option for you. And dare I say the photos are more creative and full of magic than your run-of-the-mill mall Santa photos?

NO lines, NO rush, NO stress! Just magic.

Book Your Santa Session Now!

Book your fifteen minute private meeting with Santa at the Crabapple Photography studio. Enjoy a more intimate, less overwhelming setting at the studio. Fifteen minutes allows time for the children to warm up to, chat with (if they’re of chatting age!) and give Santa their wish lists.

A note about toddlers (roughly just over 1 year to 2, almost 3 years): Believe it or not, your toddler may react poorly to being put on the lap of a strange, large man in a red suit. If this happens, we roll with it. After four years we have many tricks up our sleeve. However, some parents jump in a photo or two and welp, kids are kids. If you’d like to book a session, be sure you’re OK with the iconic “toddler screaming in Santa’s lap” photo and everything else is gravy!
