Santa Sessions

~ November 6th & 7th ~


Santa is paying a visit to the studio this year! The Santa Experience will include a private visit with Santa himself. Your kids will get to spend time visiting, take a look at the naughty and nice list, and get to tell him all about what they’d like for Christmas this year. They’ll even leave the studio with a gift from St. Nick! 

These exclusive sessions include either 5, or 10  high resolution digital images with printing rights, depending upon the package you choose for your family. Sessions include children only, no full family portraits will be included. 

Sessions will be held November 6th & 7th, from 10am – 4pm, with limited spots available. 

$100 Non-refundable* retainer is due at the time of booking. The balance is due the day of the session. If preferred, Santa will wear a mask on request.

Themed Sessions


"We couldn't be happier..."

“We recently used Melissa Marino Portrait Artistry for our first ever professional family portraits and couldn’t be happier with the final results. Melissa guided us through from start to finish in choosing a location and a “feel” for our shoot and truly worked to capture the essence of our family. The photo packages were reasonably priced and our album was completed and impeccably edited for viewing quicker than she had initially promised. We look forward to working with her again in the future!”

– Lourdesa H. – Family Session

"Melissa is amazing..."

Melissa is amazing! She has done multiple photoshoots for my twins, and each one is better than the last! To say that working with mobile toddlers is like herding kittens is an understatement, but somehow she does it with aplomb. She is patient and kind and somehow captures her subjects at the perfect moment. Her photos are truly beautiful and absolutely worth the investment. My family is so glad that we have had the opportunity to work with her; she remains our go-to for all of our picture needs!

"A pleasure to work with..."

“Melissa’s studio is gorgeous and she has such a great variety of props and outfits! She is a pleasure to work with, especially with cranky toddlers that don’t want to smile! She is amazing at what she does and the results speak for themselves. The work she puts out is unlike anyone else in the area. Definitely check her out!”

– Jennifer M. – Maternity Session

"Her work is impeccable..."

“I booked a session with Melissa for my 5-month-old daughter. She was so wonderful to work with. From communication prior to the shot, her work the day of and even following up with me. Her work is impeccable and she is just so kind. I have recommended her to many friends and would definitely use her again! Her work speaks for itself!”

– Allyson D. – Themed Session
