The Magic of Santa Experience

Philadelphia, Pa’s Best Magic of Santa Experience.
Diana Smyth Photography Studios
A magical holiday experience like only Diana Smyth can bring your family

The Magic of Santa Experience is more than just pictures with Santa. It’s an experience designed for children and families to enjoy time with Santa in a private setting without long lines. Children may wish to present their Wish List, have cookies with Santa, read a story and chat with Santa about the North Pole and more. We also welcome families, couples or even businesses to experience Santa’s magic.

This interactive session is for a magical 10 minutes per family. This year we’ll have three different scenes to choose from when you book.

Sessions run by appointment only and are available until sold out.
Bookings are limited!

The Experience

From the moment your child steps into our studio, they will experience the magic of the holidays. You’ll witness that magic Christmas sparkle in your child’s eyes. Your heart will be filled with joy witnessing your child’s magical moments as they are immeresed creatively and we are there to capture it all for you. Instead of the nerve-racking, mass-produced mall environment picture with Santa, you’ll appreciate our personalized touch and attention to artistic detail. Your child will step inside his or her very own story book, which will come to life with our authentically bearded St. Nick!

​We are excited to bring you two studio locations: The Magic of Santa Experience in Philadephia and Downingtown.
