Merry Christmas from Santa’s Workshop

Walking into Santa’s Workshop and hearing Santa greet you with a “Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas”  is just what you get when you come to Brenda Horan Photography.  To children’s delight, the studio is transformed into a rustic workshop where Santa can interact with your child during one of our yearly, Limited Edition photo sessions.

Nothing makes it more personal than having grandma or grandpa join them in this amazing experience.

This year, one of my favorite little clients came in for his  first Workshop experience.  He couldn’t have  been more perfect either.  His expressions were just on  point.

The Workbench was given a new facelift this year, and includes vintage tools that took me several trips to antique shops to find.

It’s always fun to sing a little song with Santa on magical musical instruments.

Playing a game with Santa can be fun.  Older kids love to play Candy Land.  But most boys love to play with toy trains.

When your name is on the “nice” list, you get asked “What would you like for Christmas this year?”   If you don’t have your list ready, you get to type it out on a vintage type writer!

In order for Santa to deliver toys to all the girls and boys around the world in a single night, he needs to use Christmas Magic!

When your tummy gets rumbly – out come freshly baked cookies and milk.  First we give thanks…

All the props in this set have been carefully selected to create what I consider to be an authentic, vintage workshop feel.  Everything is worn with time and love.  Creating a set that is sure to make you want to read this Christmas tale again and again, year after year.

At Brenda Horan Photography, Santa visits the studio in October, so if you are interested, it’s never to late to book your appointment as I only shoot 5-7 of these limited edition sessions per year.

From my family to yours, I wish you the most blessed Merry Christmas ever.
