What to expect from your Pittsburgh Santa Experience
Studio M is offering several Fall dates for our Santa Experience sessions. These are scheduled by appointment only.
Each session is an hour in length. This is a private session for your child with our professional Santa. Each interaction between your child and Santa is carefully choreographed in such a way to craft beautiful photographic moments to create your custom art pieces. We welcome children of all ages, siblings alone or together. Cousin groupings are welcome as well, up to 5. Each additional child will require an additional purchase of a Santa's Magical Gift. A true heirloom that will capture the legacy of your family for generations to come. http://www.studiom.ms/santas-magical-gift
Custom handmade nostalgic pajamas are provided. We have sizes 3 mos up to 12 years.
We also welcome immediate families to join in on the fun for a family portrait with Santa. You may opt for a traditional pose or do something fun with Santa.
What makes the Pittsburgh Santa Experience so Magical?
This experience is unlike any other you may see at a mall or other photography studio. Our goal is to create fine art portraits from this priceless time of magic and wonder for your child that you can treasure for a lifetime. Our custom set is warm and inviting. No lines, no chaos, no distractions.
While our process begins with a traditional photographic capture, the end result is breathtaking and stunning. Each image is digitally painted by artist Shari Brownlee then printed on the finest quality of papers. Take it one step further and have your portrait hand painted with oils and wax by Internationally awarded painter, JuliAnne Jonker. Both options result in a true heirloom that will last generations!
All of our products have the same fine art nostalgic feel as the entire session. Options include Holiday cards, ornaments and storybooks set to poetry featuring your child. Our fine art products are designed to bring joy to your home throughout the year and delight every visitor.
The fee for the Pittsburgh Santa Experience is $225. This fee includes:
-A 60 minute private photographic interactive experience with our professional Santa Claus.
-Initial Santa's Magical Gift. Includes a special wish book for your child to record their Christmas wishes, magic box and audio book.

Your custom fine art pieces are not included in the session fee. We have clients that invest anywhere between $5000 to $500. Most fall somewhere in between. Typically an investment of $1500-$2500 will allow for a beautifully framed wall piece and several smaller pieces to share with family and friends-as well as send out the most stunning Holiday cards your friends and family have ever seen! You are sure to win this years Christmas card contest!
