The Santa Experience for Cystic Fibrosis
Here’s more of the many adorable kids that came to visit us at The Santa Experience for Cystic Fibrosis for 2017!
Jackson, Joshua & Madelyn
This trio really enjoyed helping Santa work on some toys in his workshop. All three of them were especially happy to find out that they’ve landed on Santa’s “Nice List”! They all had lots of fun and they also got to do the “Reindeer Macarena” with Santa and grandma too!
There’s also a cameo of a really good looking elf in their highlight music video. That guy looks kind of familiar. Who is that elf guy?
James and Santa Claus
Little James got off to an interesting start when she came to see Santa at his workshop. There was quite a bit of playing with toys on the floor, both at the beginning and at the end of her time spent visiting with Santa. It sure was a good thing that we installed the wood floor in the studio this year, James and Santa spend a lot of time playing on it!
Dorothea’s first Christmas
This tiny cutie pie wasn’t so sure about her first meeting with Kris Kringle. At just six months old, that’s not totally unexpected behavior. Dorothea is such a sweet baby girl, and she and Santa have started what will be a long-lasting friendship for many years to come!
The Lukas Experience
Five-year-old Lukas was a real treat to watch. Lukas could hold his own on any debate team out there! He was full of questions for Santa and he even questioned some of the answers too! All in all, Lukas was a blast to have The Best Santa Experience for Cystic Fibrosis! I look forward to watching this young guy grow up, he’ll probably be teaching college classes by the time he’s in 3rd grade!

Santa’s Workshop Raising Money for Cystic Fibrosis
Our 2017 “Santa’s Workshop” and “Storytime With Santa” themed portraits helped us to raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. The Session Fee of $75 is being donated entirely to Cystic Fibrosis, with our wonderful clients writing their checks directly to CF.
In addition, Joannie & I will be donating a portion of their 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. In October of 2016, Lindsey received a double lung transplant at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis. We’re happy to report that Lindsey has recuperated very nicely and is enjoying life again with her new lungs.
So once again this year, all of the monies we raise this year will be given to Cystic Fibrosis in Lindsey’s honor. Let’s hope they can find a cure for CF soon!
During each fun-filled Santa photo session, kids got to visit with Santa Claus in his workshop for about 30 to 45 minutes while reading books, working on toys, singing songs and hanging out with Kris Kringle. Santa gave presents to each child, and there were treats for young and old alike to enjoy while they were here. We’ve got Santa coming back this weekend for “Storytime with Santa” and it should be a lot of fun too!
We will have lot’s more of The Best Santa Experience coming in the days ahead.
Our “Santa’s Workshop” photographs will be cherished for generations to come. – M&J
