Have you ever wanted to eavesdrop on what your kids are saying to Santa? Do you have a grandma or grandpa that would love to experience the innocence and joy of Santa’s visit? The Santa Portraits team at the South Hill Mall is proud to offer a new twist to enhance your Santa Experience-and is it ever a cute one! You’ll be able to listen in on a live audio feed from Santa’s chair. You will be able to hear the lists, stories, and funny things that are said. It’s free to listen to the audio during your visit. Recordings of the visits are offered on CD, and are available for purchase. Do make sure to tell his photo elves you want to go home with one of these special keepsakes so they know to record!
Update! Steve James (Santa’s photographer friend) also asked me to remind you that the special audio recordings will only be available until December 17th. After that, Santa just gets too busy for chatting much. And, they’ve also asked me to tell you about a very special offer….if you have a deployed spouse, or an active duty spouse unable to attend the photo session for other reasons, you can get the audio recording for Free! How great is that? I actually just took the boys for their pics today, and when I have a chance I’ll do a post where you can hear their audio. It’s pretty hilarious. For now, enjoy samples of this new feature here
You can also hear examples of the new audio feature, and get tons more information (they even have charts showing the best times to go!) over at the Santa Portraits Facebook page.
You can see more examples of Steve’s amazing work at their website. Try not to spend all morning oggling the cuteness-if you can! I do suggest you plan your Santa visit soon. Lines get longer as it gets closer to Christmas, and earlier visitors will have shorter waits and longer conversations! Santa is there daily from 11AM-7PM (closed Thanksgiving) until the 27th of November, and then from 10AM-8PM through December 20th, and from 8AM-9PM through the 23rd. He typically takes a reindeer feeding back from 2:45-3:15. He’ll also be in from 8AM-5PM Christmas Eve, but really-go sooner! You’ll be glad you did!
