The Best Santa Experience Raising Money for Cystic Fibrosis.
The Best Santa Experience is now complete for 2018. Please watch here or on our Facebook Page for the 2019 dates which we’ll announce in a few months.
We also have a dedicated website for The Best Santa Experience coming soon. We’ll let you know when it’s on the internet!
The Best Santa Experience 2018
Both weekends were a brand new theme we call “Santa’s Magic Cabin” that had kids sharing cookies and milk with Santa (among several other activities). There were also “flying lessons” on Santa’s Magic Sled!
To reserve a one-hour time slot with Santa Claus, we required a Reservation Fee of $200 (made online) and a check for $75 (or more) written for Cystic Fibrosis that you’ll bring when you arrive for your Santa session. The $200 Reservation Fee is non-refundable.
The Best Santa Experience and Cystic Fibrosis
As we did in both 2016 and 2017, our 2018 “Santa’s Magic Cabin” themed portraits helped us raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. Each client made a donation of $75 or more to Cystic Fibrosis. In addition, Joannie & I donated a portion of the custom print orders to CF as well. It’s our small way of helping to find a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
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. We’re happy to report that Lindsey is recuperating very nicely.
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 next 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!”
