Photos with Santa

The Las Vegas Santa Experience
Calamity Jane Photography
1025 S 1st Street, #135, Las Vegas, Nevada 89104
Saturday, December 2nd & Sunday, December 3rd
This isn't a traditional photography session that has standard poses, but a live photojournalist documentation of your family's interaction with Santa.
Santa will read to your children, help him decorate the tree, look for their name on his list, enjoy milk and cookies, find their house on his globe, and pick a present from his bag.
While this is happening, they will be capturing every precious moment.
This will sell out fast! Sign up here:
