Santa Studio Locations

Believe! A Treasured Santa Tradition – Available at TWO Dallas-Fort Worth Locations, The Dallas Arboretum and in Keller.

As a national leader in Santa studio photography, Ivey Photography has two locations to serve you.  DFW International Airport and Dallas Love Field are convenient for our out-of-town guests who are flying in to see us.  For our visitors who are driving in, we surround the DFW metroplex equally.  Our headquarters and year-round studio and gallery is located in Midlothian, TX.  We are convenient to Dallas and Fort Worth, as well as anyone visiting from the south like Austin, Waco, Houston, and San Antonio.  Our Dallas Arboretum and Keller locations are easy for our Dallas or Fort Worth-based clients, or anyone coming in from the north or east.  Whether you live in Tyler, Shreveport, Wylie, or McKinney, you’ll find an easy drive to either of our studios.  Keller is our largest space with the most in-depth experience.  Our clients from Fort Worth, Southlake, and even Denton will find us conveniently located in downtown Keller at The Keller Roundhouse.  Make a reservation.

About our Dallas Arboretum Location (NEW for 2022)

The Dallas Arboretum is world famous for the 12-Days of Christmas setup that runs from mid-November through the end of the year.  Our Santa Experience is now a key part of the draw for visitors from all over the world.

Our Dallas Arboretum Santa setup features two classic scenes, common to our Keller location.  We will begin with Santa’s Livingroom.  Children often greet Santa while he is sleeping or reading a book.  His gentle approach will make them at ease, no matter their age.

Our second set, also common to all of our locations, and our signature set, is Santa’s Workshop.  Santa does most of his magic and the children will do most of their interactive activities with Santa here.  All of our workshops feature handcrafted furniture by Taylored 4 Texas Furniture.

Appointments at The Dallas Arboretum are 20 or 40 minutes.  The 20-minute encounter is actually about 15-minutes of camera time and 5 minutes to get you and your family in and out.  The 20-minute session is best for children who will not need much warm-up time with Santa.  Don’t bring first-time babies or children with high anxiety to the 20-minute session, please.  The 40-minute Experience is most like our Original Believe!  You’ll have plenty of time to warm up to Santa while you experience a wide variety of activities.


Believe! Keller Kitchen

About our Keller Location

The Believe! Experience in Keller is located at The Keller Roundhouse.  The Roundhouse is a popular event venue in the heart of downtown.

Keller features the nation’s largest collection of Christmas photography sets in a single location.  We offer FIVE SETS that make up your experience.  Our traditional Livingroom and Workshop scenes are common to our Keller and Midlothian locations.  In addition, Keller offers Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen scene and an enlarged Santa Mailroom.

For 2022, we are building a FULL-SIZED nativity scene, complete with Three Kings, Baby Jesus, a beautiful handmade manger, and a rustic shelter.  Santa will kneel at the manger with your children for prayer and share the story of Christmas with them.


The scene is under construction at Santa’s Workshop and we’ll debut it in Keller on our opening weekend.  Thanks to the Vaughan Family for helping us with a concept image last year.
