Okay mama – let’s be perfectly honest with one another. You are sick and tired of waiting in lines, toddler on hip, just to get close and the bawling begin. It is rough! The holidays, while we love them, can simply be…exhausting. It is EXHAUSTING.
You deserve a break, mama. You’ve earned one.
Christmas should be a fun, joyous time – not just for the kiddos, but you too. You as you watch your kiddos enjoy them. This year I am challenging your family to focus on experiences. It isn’t all wrapping paper and gift cards. It is snuggling up and watching that Christmas movie you’ve seen 100 times. It is making s’mores on the barely functioning grill you ordered online. I’m challenging families in our community to focus on family, focus on memories, and make this season the magical beauty that it truly is.
…and, of course, I have a little help with that!
I want to share A Moment with Santa with you! These magical sessions will be taking place on November 16th in Martinsburg, WV. To provide you with the absolute best experience, these sessions are by appointment only. This means no waiting in lines, no million eyes on your (possibly nervous) children, etc. We are focusing on adding another holiday experience to your family’s memories.
We know every great experience comes with food, so there will be cookies, milk and hot cocoa (as well as water, and coffee – for the adults).
Santa visits our studio once a year and makes up for lost time away from your children. There will be story telling, in which he is happy to answer all of those questions your little ones are dying to answer. Santa will lead your children through a number of activities such as opening a gift (that, yes, is theirs to keep), finding their name on the nice list, using his magic dust, painting toys, finding the North Pole, and so much more!
We will have multiple seating available, so that children are not forced to sit on a stranger’s lap – we know Santa is amazing, but we push no one outside of their comforts! Every family will have up to 15 private minutes with Santa to get comfortable. While our set is focused primarily for children, full families, adults, and even pets are welcome to join in the fun this year!
The idea of Santa can be stressful for many children. We are proud to say that there have been NO TEARS within our Moment with Santa experience. While we know that may not always stay true, we are focused on creating an enjoyable, stress-free environment. We hope that this experience forms a personal connection with Santa for your child to look back on when thinking of their childhood. Every child who brings a letter to Santa will be receiving a handwritten letter in return, to add to these memories.
To make this accessible to many, the session fee for your experience is only $50. This includes the full Santa experience you are receiving, and packages of prints and digital images are purchased separately, if desired. There is no purchase requirement, so if things do not go as planned and you are not in love with the images, you are under no obligation to purchase. We want to create, again, a no pressure, stress-free environment. If you don’t love the images, you are under no obligation to purchase.
A bit more about our set. We are still prepping, as quickly as possible, for the arrival of this wonderful, magical man! You can expect to find Santa in his best, old-timey (deep red) Father Christmas outfit, rather than the new, bright red suit. You will walk into a timeless, classic room setting with simplistic decor, wall and flooring, and two gorgeous places to sit (for Santa and guests). Each year we create a new, magical set. Would you like to see this year’s room?!
Outside of the set, you can expect to be greeted by Mrs. Claus who will point you in the direction of seating if you arrive early, as well as refreshments, and ensure that everyone is comfortable.
We have one more trick up our sleeve! This year Santa will be leading you and your family outdoors to meet his reindeer. During this half of the experience, you will receive additional time with Santa, and even get to take a bell from the reindeer’s harness home with you!
We hope that you are excited as we are…I couldn’t be happier to have this coming back to Martinsburg. What do you think?
Limited spaces remain for this once in a lifetime, magical experience. Would you like to hear additional information and pencil in your experience? Let’s do it!
