Mon ami, Santa {my friend, Santa}


Classic. Candid. Captivating.

Time to dress up the kids and head over to the mall to wait in a long line to see a fake-bearded, less-than-jolly, man dressed in a red suit and claiming to be Santa. The pictures surely mark a memory – a memory that the kids are tired and cranky after waiting in line and terrified of sitting on a stranger’s lap. Right? WRONG!

As a mom and photographer, Santa photos are an “exciting” DISASTER each year. This year, I invite you to truly VISIT with Santa and enjoy every moment. “Mon Ami, Santa” {My friend, Santa} is about interacting with your season’s favorite friend and capturing candid and genuine fun!

Mon Ami, Santa {my friend, Santa} is a *15-minute interactive visit with your old friend St. Nick. Children are greeted by name, and spend their time with Santa talking about things that make them excited – things that make them genuinely laugh! Santa will guide children into jolly situations, without them ever knowing it. With a little help from you, we will make this time with Santa personalized and special for your family. (Parents are even welcome to send a gift early for Santa to deliver specially for your child).

Santa will be visiting from the North Pole for two special days!
