Santa's Magical Visit

Santa's Magical Visit

As soon as you enter our studio, the magical, nostalgic feeling of Christmas will embrace you.  We invite you to sit back and enjoy the wonderment that Santa's Magical Visit will bring to your children. It will fill your heart full of laughter, love and even a few tears of joy. If you believe like children do, the magic of Christmas lives inside you.

Seeing is Believing
— The Santa Clause movie

Santa's Magical Visit is held each year starting in July through November. Since Santa is a busy, busy man during the holidays, he is only available to visit our studio each month for a few select days. During these days, we offer children a chance to meet Santa Claus in a private setting for one-on-one time.

During this time, the children are allowed to experience him like never before! Starting by the fireplace, where Santa will check the nice list, ask the children what they want for Christmas, show them where the North Pole is while giving them a peek into his Magic toy bag. Then Santa will move over to his workshop, where they will get to help paint toys for other children and be an official teddy bear tester.  After all that work, they take a break for a little milk and cookies while Santa reads "Twas the Night Before Christmas".  Of course, things may vary depending upon the age of the children, the number of participants and any fear or anxiety they may have.  

Our goal is to create a fun, uplifting, natural experience with Santa and capture as many scenes as possible.


Here are some things you should know about J Rosa Photography's magical visit with Santa:

  • Each visit is 30-45 minutes of interactive time with Santa.
  • For the children to stand out, we encourage them to wear plaid or solid white, cream or green pajamas.
  • For children 1-3, do NOT over hype your upcoming visit, this can create anxiety once they meet the real Santa.
  • Pick your favorite poses the following week after your visit with Santa.
  • Each digital photo art piece is unique and hand finished by artist, Jessica Rosa. Quality takes time, where orders can take up to a month to deliver due to the level of detail each art piece requires.
  • You have the artists permission to print photos, including wall prints or metal murals (our favorite), and to make your own holiday cards.
  • You can post to social media without studio logo or branding.
  • Absolutely no cell phone photos or videos are allowed during the visit. If a cell phone is in use (or heard) during the visit, the session will immediately end and be forfeited.


Early-bird sessions:

  • Early-bird sessions are in July, August & September - save money by booking early!
  • How do you explain visiting Santa in July, August or September? Simply state that since it is pre-holiday season, Santa has more time to visit while the elves are making toys. Surprisingly children are not as concerned about this as much as parents because they are meeting Santa.
  • Having your photos done early allows you enough time to actually USE your artwork! You can make gifts such as pillows or blankets.
  • Mail your holiday cards early, right after Thanksgiving! 
  • You will LOVE all of the pre-season sales that you will get to participate in before the holidays get CrAzY!
