2021 Santa Experience

Are you ready for another magical Santa Experience with Memory Portraits by Gigi? We sure can’t wait to see our existing clients, meet our new clients and make some Christmas Magic with Santa!  This year we are offering two different themes to accommodate additional clients, offer more appointment times and give you options for your 2021 Christmas portraits. Our new 2021 theme is Magical Main Street Christmas, set on a snowy city street at Christmas time. Plus the classic Polar Express theme is back by popular demand!

Your health and safety is important to us.  With the pandemic still going on, we will have added time between sessions for cleaning and disinfecting the set and props. Our separate waiting area for clients to prepare before their appointment will also be cleaned once you move into the studio for your portrait session. To minimize sharing space, only one family will be allowed in this area at a time.  We want to ensure all our clients are comfortable and still able to have a wonderful experience capturing precious 2021 Christmas memories.

Please carefully review the Magical Main Street Christmas and Polar Express themes for portraits sessions including the dates they will be held below BEFORE scheduling an appointment.  Polar Express will be available for one weekend only in October. Additional information about what to expect and a preview of more poses and images from our sessions can be found at the bottom of this page. We are so excited about our Magical Main Street Christmas and Polar Express Santa experiences and can’t wait to share the magic with your and your family.

We know you will love your 2021 Christmas portraits so much that you’ll want even more products to cherish. Transform your home each holiday season to come with Wall Art Canvases. Create a treasured item to share and reminisce over with our Storybook Albums.  Make a statement with custom designed Christmas Cards. Need help with hard-to-buy-for relatives? We can check off every person on your Christmas list with a variety of personalized gifts featuring your favorite Christmas 2021 portraits.  All of our prints, wall art and storybooks are heirloom quality, which means they are printed on fine art paper. They will stand the test of time and look beautiful for many years to come.

How does the pre-session consultation work?

Shortly after you schedule your appointment, Gigi will reach out to you by phone. During the consultation she will discuss the various poses and props to be used depending on the age of your children and the type of session you have selected. She can offer suggestions on outfits choices, but please see below for some ideas before you consultation. If you have any special needs, concerns or questions this is a great time to discuss with Gigi so everything runs smoothly on portrait day. 

How do I choose my portraits?

On the day of your Christmas Portrait Session, we will schedule an ordering session with Gigi which will happen a week or so later. We will have a range of days and times available to meet your needs. During your 1 hour ordering session, you will review and choose all your favorite portraits and place your order! Please ask Gigi for availability of other products not shown or listed on the price list if you have a special idea in mind.

What is the cost for additional images & products?

Please see the link below for full pricing of our 2021 Christmas products. Depending on the products you choose, additional charges may apply for custom editing, shipping and delivery services. This will be discussed during your ordering session.

Please note that pricing is the same for both Polar Express and Magical Main Street Christmas.
