I'm surprised more local photogs haven't cashed in on this type of experience yet!



I'm starting to see more pics with the theme so I wouldn't be surprised if this is more popular next year. We are only doing this for 2016. Hope it's good.

Is this in West Islip? I read on FB that they are really running behind.



I remember reading this on here last year as well.

We went last Saturday. It was a lot of fun. My DC are 5 and 7 and they liked it.
It went by fast though- quick shots with Santa reading to them and looking at the good list.

We then moved to 2 other set ups- 1 a winter scene where they threw snowballs and then Santa's workshop which was my favorite.

At the end, they had cookies and milk with Santa and he then had them sit separately on his lap and tell him what they would like for Christmas.

The place is adorable and decorated so cute!
Have fun!



Santa didn't read to my girls... I thought that was supposed to be a scene.



That's the scene I'm really looking forward to. I will be annoyed if we don't get that one.


When we got there, they had us fill out a sheet about the kids so maybe you can make a comment on there that you would like him to read to your children.

Stacy Sideris does shoots with a very realistic looking Santa.
I have seen it on my FB feed

We have this booked in December. I'm not using them for my card. I think she grew very quickly based on demand and she probably doesn't have the time to put in the same quality. We'll see how it goes. My kids are so little, I'm not expecting much.

We went today. I had never been before and was planning on only doing once. The place was absolutely adorable. My twins loved it. Everyone was super nice. My youngest who has autism is very difficult and doesn't sit at all! They were so great with him! They said they got some good shots. If they got 1 or 2 with him in it I'll be thrilled.Chat Icon

Re: "The Santa Experience"

We booked the Santa Experience earlier this year and had to reschedule due to a conflict. Of course there were no more spots left for this year. I noticed that Marie Christine who we used for our newborn shoot did a session one weekend that looked great but by the tie I contacted her she said that was the last weekend.

I found Three Lil Birdies Photography on Facebook and saw she recently did a session with Santa similar to the Santa Experienced that I loved. I contacted her and she squeezed us in for today. She was great and the Santa was so friendly and very realistic looking.

She said if she got enough interest she may do another shoot this year

Yes! Her pics looked exactly the same. I went to HS with her and used her for pics one year. She's great!

I got out pics back this weekend. I went on 10/8.
They were good but honestly not as good as I hoped.
We received 22 pics and you can choose 12 or pay 75 more for all of them.
My DH wants to do that but I didn't see that many more then the 12 you are allowed that I loved.
Part of this could be that my son was vert busy looking at everything except the camera Chat Icon
She did get 2 great pic of the DD and DS whispering in Santa's ear which is priceless so I guess it was worth it for those!

Re: "The Santa Experience"

We did it last year and we loved it.. Kristen was so good with my daughter. I have seen some pics from this year and it my option I feel like they have gotten away from the welcoming feel. I feel like its lets see how many sessions we can fit it. It did take a while to get the pics back last year but well worth the wait.I am kinda of glad we didn't do this year.
