The Santa Experience 2022 | Northern Virginia Photographer

I can’t wait for the Santa Experience 2022! I know it’s going to be even more magical than last year. The complete joy that comes over the studio is truly incredible, and it’s just as special for parents as it is for the kids. Being able to watch your child’s face as they realize Santa is in the room with them is an unforgettable moment. It’s nearly August, and the holiday season has a habit of sneaking up on all of us! Mark your calendars now for my Santa Experience: November 11th, 12th, 13th, and 18th! 

As a lifestyle photographer, I make sure to capture all the little moments between your children and Santa. A look of awe, wonder, or surprise is priceless! With this studio experience, we can reserve your time, talk about how to prepare your children, and have a planned wardrobe so everyone is comfortable and happy. My studio Santa will truly bring the magic; he will speak to your children by name, engage with them according to their comfort level, and even give them gifts! 

The Santa Experience with me in the studio is an enchanted adventure that your children will absolutely love. There’s always pressure for a beautiful Holiday card, and this takes all the stress out of trying to get the perfect photo. Get in touch to reserve your time for your 2022 Santa Experience!

“Hands down, we had the best Santa experience in Emily’s studio! She was able to capture the sweetest moments of my three little ones meeting Santa. Emily goes above and beyond to make the kids smile, which truly makes a difference in the pictures. The process was easy and quick, and Emily took every precaution to make it safe during these Covid times. Even my husband said it was the best experience and he wants to tell all his friends to skip the mall and go to Emily’s studio!” -Ali Newsome
