Our Charleston Santa Experience is always meant to create a story. It’s beautiful to bring the wonder of Santa to life in stunning imagery every year and it’s one of my most favorite sessions every year to work on. We create a magical workshop here in my studio in Charleston, SC for completely private sessions! The children get dressed up in their beautiful pajama sets that we provide (or can be purchased! We compiled beautiful sets just for you in our PJ BLOG post!) & then start their Charleston Santa Experience! We have them sneak up on Santa because the silly guy got so tired checking his list twice that he fell asleep right here in the studio! Once he’s awake, I create the story line of painting magic, taking a magical floating sleigh ride, checking the nice list, taking a look into his toy bag, play with toy trains and so much more!! We don’t want to give out all of our secrets!! During this entire experience the children don’t even notice I’m capturing their beautiful faces the entire time behind the camera! I’m able to capture each smile, laugh, and surprised expression to create the most beautiful portraits that you can cherish all year. We’re capturing a priceless and unforgettable story for your family and it’s not something your children will ever forget! At the end of every experience we give them cookies to leave with! They’re all pre-packaged for safety purposes and is the final touch to say “see ya later!” to good Ol’ Saint Nick! It’s such a delightful time and I love seeing the smiling faces as I watch the magic of Christmas come to life for them. We know the REAL Santa and love having him visit us for Christmas in Charleston!
