Sacramento Santa Sessions

Absolutely! There’s nothing mini about this session. It is a once upon a time magical experience. Your children will have a private 20-minute session, with Santa, packed full of childhood wonder and dreams come true! 

Although your visit takes place in an ordinary home in Saacramento CA, once your children are greeted by Santa, they will be transported into the world of Santa’s Enchanted Workshop. Santa will tell them stories of the North Pole and read a page or two from his favorite Christmas storybook. Together they will find your child’s name on Santa’s Nice List, search the globe for where Santa lives, and paint toys with Santa’s magic to help the elves. Oh, and of course, he’ll have the latest update from your child’s “elf on the shelf.” And he may even sprinkle some magic for your littles to catch! He would love to see your child’s wish list, so don’t forget to bring it! 

As you sit back and watch your child experience the joy, magic, and wonderment that Santa brings, your heart will warm with the nostalgia of Christmases past. Don’t be surprised if your own childhood memories come rushing back. The Storybook Santa Experience will fill your heart with all the cheer of the Christmas season and your home with beautiful santa portraits!

The Magic in The Art

Every image is edited by hand with my whimsical storybook technique. The editing process for each photo takes about 45-60 minutes to craft. These fine art images are meant to be archived as tangible heirloom pieces and displayed in your home year after year. 

The time and effort that goes into this experience, along with the timeless works of heart are worth every minute it take to create. The awe and delight on the children’s faces as they visit with Santa is priceless.

Crafting this enchanting experience involves weaving together countless intricate details and components. It’s truly a passion project, each year I eagerly anticipate the opportunity to do it all over again!. 

More and more I find that the the magic of childhood goes by way too fast. Your kids will only be this little once and the time while they still BELIEVE is fleeting. I would love to be part of their Christmas magic and leave your family with these precious memories.

Due to the lengthy process, I take a very limited amount of sessions each year. Sessions fill up fast, so if you need more info please reach out to me as soon as possible at nostalgicheartphotofilms@gmail.com or shoot me a text 916-834-7020 and we’ll set up a call.

Personalized Storybook

With Every Great Experience Comes Beautiful Heirloom Keepsakes

You will love the amazing line of heirloom products I have put together for you. My favorite being this gorgeous Red Velvet Storybook.

Each album is custom created for your family to cherish for years to come.  It will be personalized with your children’s names, and the thick pages will be filled with 10-12 hand-selected whimsical images and a rhyming verse storyline.

This beautiful album will tell the story of your children’s visit with Santa in his Enchanted Workshop. It will quickly become a new family tradition as you bring it out every year to read to your children and they delight in reliving their magical visit with Santa over and over again.

Important Information About Your Session

These are not the kind of sessions where your child will be expected to sit and smile for the camera. Instead, they are about capturing your child(ren)’s true delight as they spend time with Santa.

Only a limited number of sessions are available, so ring in the Christmas cheer and bring one of your child’s biggest Christmas wishes to life!

Due to the nature of these sessions and the limited availability, the retainer is non-refundable. However, you may transfer/gift your session to another family.

The Santa Pictures is truly a magical experience!!! Not only was it a photo shoot but also created many memories that have been talked about this past year. Cindy was phenomenal to work with not only during the photo shoot but also helping me determine which outfits would look best with the backdrop and making sure Santa had my kids toy list. My son (5yrs old) immediately gravitated to Santa but my daughter (2yrs old) was a little hesitant but with Santa’s magical touch, was able to warm up and Cindy captured some amazing pictures. These photos I will cherish forever and hope to continue the tradition this year as well!

Cindy is the best! All of the extra attention to detail, from the first interaction, to the finished product makes for a unique and memorable experience! Fun, while the memories are captured beautifully! 💯 Recommend!!

Our Santa experience was nothing short of magical! Cindy was very responsive with my questions before the shoot and so helpful with wardrobe and styling advice. She was so kind and patient with the kids and Santa was straight from the North Pole! Our Christmas card last year was a family favorite and heirloom to cherish always. I highly recommend this photo session.
