Santa’s Secret Workshop
Santa’s Secret Workshop is our biggest set of mini sessions each year! These sessions are reserved way in advance, usually during the summer or early fall, and allow for children to get to spend a half hour with Santa Claus, himself! Invitations and “security badges” are sent from the north pole a few weeks before your session and upon your arrival at his secret satellite location, a security elf will come out and greet you and check everyone’s security clearance. Occasionally, he has to radio into the big guy himself and it’s always fun for the little ones to hear Santa on the walkies! There is a long buffer between families so there is really a sense of special treatment!
Once inside, Santa makes a grand entrance and for the next half hour, the kiddos get to look for their names on Santa’s nice list, eat some milk and cookies, help test out or fix some toys, and just generally hang out with one of the coolest guys they’ll ever meet. It’s fun for the entire family and the memories last a lifetime. We have a few families who have come every year since its inception and look forward to it as soon as the weather starts to turn.

Photographer Joleigh Van Hoy explains the session:
One of our favorite things is helping a child have their very first positive experience with Santa (you’ve heard the unhappy ones at the mall!)
The first look! AKA the real magic…
