The Fine Art Santa Portrait Experience

We still have PLENTY of open space for SESSIONS, however, at this time, we are no longer able to guarantee Christmas delivery for your products.  We would love to have you book a session with us, and we will do our best to finish your images and meet with you in time to place your end of Season orders, but our production times are long for our hand finished artwork, and we’ve filled our post-production calendar.  AGAIN, Santa is available to provide the experience to children, but the ordering will likely not net you  products to give as gifts in 2016.  

Our classic studio in Midlothian will take Friday and Saturday appointments Oct 8-Dec 24
Our NEW Location in Richardson (Beltline & 75) will take appointments Oct 23-Dec 18

The Ivey Photography Limited Edition Fine Art Santa in the Studio event is held each year between October and January, with sessions available year-round.  We offer children a chance to meet Santa Claus in a private setting, with up to one hour of one-on-one time.  Your child will talk with Santa about their wish list, and he will check his list to see if they were naughty or nice.  Afterward, they may share time over warm cookies and milk or learn about the North Pole.  We offer Fine Art Prints, Heirloom Canvas, Framed Metal Art, Archival Storybooks, and a variety of gift items.  Our available session times sell out every year.  Be sure to sign up for our newsletter or call us to reserve your space.  Families who have been in the past get first choice on coming back, and we get about 80% repeat clients from year to year.

Each of our Fine Art Santa portraits are hand finished digital art pieces.  We have carefully blended our finish to be unique and enhance the story of the magic of Santa Claus.  We have also taken great care to select the media with which we print and display your artwork.  We understand the importance of digital media in today’s world, however, we do not release our digital artwork for reprinting.  You will receive your very own custom mobile app containing sharing sized copies of your purchased images.  The app is with you wherever you go and you can share the images to Facebook, Twitter, Email and more.  For our printed works, we offer a wide variety of finishes that we are certain will exceed your expectations.

Commissions and Fees

The fee for the Fine Art Santa Experience is $195 for up to two children, and $75 for additional children.  If you have more than 4, please contact us for group pricing.  We require a $300 minimum product purchase per session.  Please ask us for pricing of specific items.

What our clients are saying:

-Beth in Midlothian –  “Thank you for the experience of a lifetime for our kids. They will forever remember these special moments with Santa! We can’t wait to see the photos that were captured!”


What our clients are saying

Amy – “Our Santa experience at Ivey Photography was amazing. The look on my 3 year old daughter ‘s face when she first saw Santa was priceless. The Santa was very authentic and was wonderful with small children. He picked her up to sit in his lap and talked to her like she was his own. He played the part well showing her his workshop, having cookies and cocoa, and looking at the list of good girls and boys. It brings tears to my eyes looking at the innocence on her face and how much she believed in him. She left the studio so excited and asked the whole night to go back to visit with Santa. Also a job well done by the photographers, they always do an amazing job! Thank you Chris, Shana, and Santa for a wonderful experience that we will always treasure with beautiful pictures.”
