The Magical Santa Experience in Ottawa
Nov 4, 5 & 19, 2023

Watch this behind-the-scenes video of the magic that awaits during this very special Christmas session!

An holiday experience you don't want to miss!


Witness the wonder on your children's faces as Santa guides them through a series of activities that are sure to bring out the natural smiles during these Santa sessions. We are so honoured to provide these priceless memories for families, as we know how fleeting this magical time can be!


The Magical Santa Experience is a fine art portrait experience that your children will remember for years to come! 

Our professionally trained Santa has been with us for 3 years now, and children love his quiet demeanour and easygoing personality. With the extended 45-minute Santa session, there's plenty of time for even shy children to warm up to him! After their one-on-one time with Santa, we reserve 15 minutes for family portraits on a stunning set using couture dresses from the studio closet!


What will my child do during their experience with Santa?

This unique experience is something you and your children will cherish for many years to come.  Robin Lea Photography studio in Manotick will be transformed into Santa’s magical workshop and kitchen! We will take time so that your child feels at ease. No rushed mini sessions here! During the 45-minute interactive experience, children will:

  • Play with toys 

  • Help Santa build and paint toys

  • Read a Christmas story

  • Check their name on Santa’s “Nice List”

  • Take a peek in Santa’s magical toy bag 

  • Bake cookies

  • Enjoy treats with Santa


They will also get to share their Christmas wish list, and tell Santa exactly what they are hoping to receive this year. This full-length session is great for younger children, larger families, and any child that might take some time to warm up to Santa. 

In the days following your session, you will pick your favourite images to purchase that will be artistically enhanced and delivered as high resolution digital files. Each final photo will go through extensive stylistic editing to make them truly magical!


Images are also available as printed artwork and storybooks that will become a family heirloom, taken out to enjoy each holiday season. Bonus painterly effects are applied to every wall art and Storybook purchase, to turn each photo into a nostalgic Christmas painting!
