**New** The Santa Experience Video Posted!!

The Santa Experience By Cherished Images is BOOKING NOW!!

When: November 11th, 2017, limited appointments available

Where: Santa’s Vintage Inspired Toy Workshop at The 8th Street Studio in Boise, Idaho

Who: Children of all ages! Kids between ages 3-9 enjoy the most magical experiences, however Santa loves babies, dogs, and even older siblings who are well past the age of “magic” have been caught rolling on the floor laughing by Santa’s bantering and witty humor. We even have ways of working with the young toddler who is easily frightened or won’t sit still for anything! Working with experienced staff leads to the best possible outcome, even when the subjects aren’t necessarily on their “best behavior”… Santa doesn’t put anyone of the Naught List here ;)

What: The Santa Experience is a completely personalized and interactive journey! Your child is greeted by Mrs. Claus and lead into Santa’s workshop where they can explore the floor to ceiling holiday toys and surroundings and then be shown how they can call Santa in for a visit with the shake of the magical bells from his sleigh. After Santa arrives they spend time talking, playing, asking questions or hearing stories, in this child directed meet and greet, all while our nationally award winning professional photographers capture the wide eyed looks of wonder and joy throughout their custom experience. After waves and hugs goodbye to Santa, Mrs. Claus presents them with special treats right from her very own kitchen that leave them licking their lips, as they smile, with heart warming tales that will be treasured forever.

Why: Because making childhood memories that they will cherish for a lifetime is priceless! (And YOU get to remember it with some of the best Christmas Cards and speciality Holiday Wall Art, EVER!!) Parents have told us on numerous occasions that they aren’t sure who had more fun, them or the kids :)

The Charity: This is a Difference Maker Charity Event that helps to benefit The Ronald McDonald House Charities of Idaho. Each participant who brings in a new, unwrapped toy or gift card (valued at $25 or more) will receive an exclusive custom ornament from their session.  The gifts will be presented to The Ronald McDonald House for their own “Santa’s Workshop” event and help touch the lives of many families.
