Pictures with Santa 2023


“Unlike the mall, Red M makes photos with Santa a magical experience. We were not rushed and achieved a ton of amazing photos. The hardest part of the entire experience was narrowing down the photos for our keepsake album. From beginning to end, the photoshoot is amazing. Santa was the real deal, and our daughter made a new best friend that day. She still talks about the experience and how Santa read a story to her and knew her name. Our entire family left that day feeling the holiday magic. We can’t wait to return this year!” ~ Nene

“Santa always makes my son giggle resulting in wonderful photographs! Not to mention he has the patience of a saint when my son tugs on his beard every year! Taking Christmas photographs with Santa at Red M Studio is a memory in itself. Worth every penny!” ~ Jennifer

“With a one year old, having the opportunity for a no stress 10 minute session was amazing. His initial reaction would have delivered disappointing results had we been in the traditional mall cattle-call experience.” ~ Shauna

“Toby’s first visit with Santa was everything we could have dreamed of and more. The studio space was calm and inviting and Santa was absolutely fantastic. 10/10 this experience will be hard to top next year.” ~ Rachel

“It was magical to be able to spend focused time with Santa without having to wait in line.”~ Jared

“The Red M Studio has the most amazing Santa experience I have ever seen, as a mom of 2 (16, 6)… We’ve seen plenty Santa’s. Their session is so personal and personalized. Santa knows their name before they walk in, he knows things that he could only know through magic, he even brings their personal hand written letter to read together. He is especially patient and so much fun. I look forward to this every year and my little one talks about it throughout the year, and can’t wait for the next year. Highly recommend and 10+ stars! Especially if one is on the fence… this will help keep the magic alive a little bit longer. Not to mention, the pictures are absolutely gorgeous.” ~ Christy
