The Best Santa Experience Raising Money for Cystic Fibrosis.
In 2021, we raised just over $6400 for Cystic Fibrosis! We’re looking to increase that amount in 2022. Our goal is $10,000! Please sign up for your own magical Santa Experience and help us beat CF!
We’re now taking reservations for 2022!
Santa Claus will be here on the following dates in 2022: Saturday, October 22nd and Sunday, October 23rd, as well as Saturday, November 5th, and Sunday, November 6th. The theme for 2022 will be “Santa’s Cabin.” Here’s what that set looks like (there may be some things that change a little, but it will generally be this look).
Check out all of the details on our dedicated Santa website just for The Best Santa Experience. Please visit the site for lots of great information and to make your online reservations as well.

Our Beautiful Santa Claus Themes
We had an all-new theme in 2021! “Santa’s Enchanted Forest” was a big hit! We were so excited to have a beautiful setting in the woods, with frosty trees in a pretty park-like setting. We had all of our favorite activities with Santa Claus including:
- Santa’s Magic Book
- Santa’s Magical Toy Bag
- Magic Snowball Fight
- Santa’s Magic Flying Sled
- The Nice List
- Milk & Cookies with Santa
- Santa’s Magic Globe
- Presents for each child
- Snacks and treats
And Santa brought Frosty the Snowman with him too! All that, and much more!
“Santa’s Enchanted Forest!”
Here are our other Santa Claus themes, which we rotate from year to year:
“Santa’s Magic Cabin”
“Storytime With Santa”
The Best Santa Experience and Cystic Fibrosis
As we’ve done every year since 2016, The Best Santa Experience raises money for Cystic Fibrosis. Each client makes a donation of $75 or more to Cystic Fibrosis. In addition, Elf Joannie & I donate a portion of the custom print orders to CF as well. It’s our way of helping to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis. In 2021, we raised over $6400 for CF!
Our godchild, Lindsey, has Cystic Fibrosis and in late October of 2016, she received a double lung transplant at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis.
So our plan is for all of our Santa Claus Portraits, both now and in the future, we will be raising monies to be donated to Cystic Fibrosis in Lindsey’s honor. Let’s hope they can find a cure for CF soon!
These traditional Santa Claus Portraits and our new Heirloom Santa Claus Portraits will be cherished for generations to come and they’re so much fun to create too! We hope to see you in October or November! – M&J
Client Testimonials About “The Best Santa Experience” at Michael Anderson Photography:
“Mike and Joannie sure do The Best Santa Experience right! Our kids both look forward to meeting Santa at the Anderson house every year. Each session is personalized for our kids and even Mike and Joannie get involved in the experience by dressing up! Santa is GREAT at interacting with the kids and each session is not rushed at all.
And the pictures? They are EXCEPTIONAL! The photos really capture the magic of the kids meeting Santa. We will be doing this every year and I HIGHLY recommend!”
