Best Photos with Santa Claus :: North Shore MA
Every year before the holidays I get to catch up with some friends. One of these friends you might recognize. Here’s a few hints: big white beard, red suit, jolly smile. That’s right, Santa Claus! He comes to my studio every year for one weekend only and I’m always happy to catch up with him. But he’s not the only friend I get to see every year for Christmas photos. Because every year I have families who come visit the studio again for their photos with Santa. Which is just one reason why these North Shore photos with Santa Claus mini sessions are some of the absolute best ones.
The Santa Claus experience mini sessions are officially completely booked! We are all looking forward to the fun and festivity of these sessions.
Getting to catch up with friends isn’t the only reason I love these Santa Claus mini sessions. I also love them because they’re fun and full of magic. Whether it is baby’s first Christmas or your kiddo is a pro when it comes to Christmas, there is something so fantastic about seeing these little ones interacting with Santa. And unlike going to a mall and fighting crowds or waiting in line, these sessions are 10-15 minutes of one-on-one time for your children and Santa Claus. We encourage children to bring along letters to Santa or Christmas wishlists. We also have both milk and cookies for Santa to give to your children (with your permission!) for some extra fun.
Rocking Pictures with Santa Claus
There is always something special about taking photos with Santa. Last year there was a little something extra special. I’ve written about my buddy Mr. N a few times on the blog and on social media, so chances are you might have read about him before. He and his big brother came for photos with Santa a few years ago and brought amazing letters for Santa, something that I definitely encourage families to do because it’s the absolute sweetest. They did the same thing the following year. I wrote about that photo session last year. In that Christmas blog post I wrote about the magic of Christmas and Santa Claus. A few weeks after those photos were taken, I found out that Mr. N had been diagnosed with Leukemia.
Last year, N’s mom and dad wanted to make the Santa Claus experience extra special for N and his big brother. So without further ado I present to you: Rocker Santa! This was a special backdrop that mom and dad actually brought along for the session. I love that we were able to make Christmas a little more magical for this family!
I’ve been photographing this sweet family for years! Since back when big brother was still in his mommy’s tummy. Baby sister’s newborn session was just recently on the blog. Needless to say, after years of photographing these two, I loved being able to see them with my friend Santa!
Displaying Your Santa Claus Pictures At Home
These Santa Claus portraits are always super popular. They make fantastic Christmas card photos or gifts for family and friends. But they also make amazing wall art. Whether these portraits become a part of your Christmas decor that come out every year, or if they’re hung year round. Either way, I love the idea of displaying these photos as framed wall art or gallery wrapped canvases. I have some Christmas themed portraits of my daughters that have made their way into the regular Christmas decorations each year. I love pulling these photos out and seeing how little my girls were in past Christmases. This has definitely become one of my favorite traditions!
Not sure what to get? Let me help! Whether you’re looking for small framed photos, or large canvases, or anything in between I can create a wall art mock-up using a photo of your walls. Here’s an example from these North Shore Santa photos!
