The experience

Experience the joy and magic of Santa through your child’s eyes. The Magic of Santa is a 30 minute, interactive portrait session with Santa. Sit on a couch at the edge of Santa’s den and watch your child meet Santa. Watch as they find their name on the Nice list, share milk and cookies, chat about what they want for Christmas, find the North Pole and so much more. They will finish with a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.

We offer a Santa experience that you and your child will love which is not your typical “picture with Santa”. Our studio is turned into Santa’s home where your child will be delighted and enjoy special moments with him.

This entire experience is designed to create a series of events to photograph for you to enjoy for years to come. Our goal is to capture the natural expressions and interactions of your child with Santa. A true, one-of-a-kind experience that everyone will remember.

Pricing and Details

Every experience comes with a beautiful keepsake to remember Santa’s visit by. After your experience, choose from several heirloom items to cherish at home or share with family for years to come. Choose from wall art, a stunning remembrance album and creative gifts.

Meet Santa

Santa Ricky is our Premier Santa who has been making children happy since 2017. He considers Sumter, SC his home away from home (the North Pole). When the Christmas season is officially closed each year, he works to make his home more age-friendly and spends time with his favorite reindeer, Blitzen, who he says, “has shown character and hard work. He is truly the leader of the pack.” 

Santa Ricky’s favorite thing about his job is bringing the magic alive and his goal is to keep that magic going for each child he meets. His favorite Christmas movie is Miracle on 34th Street. We are so excited to have Santa Ricky back in the studio with us this year.
