A look at the journey

The Holiday Experience

An appointment with M3 Creative Portraits unlocks an all-inclusive magical experience full of adventure at the helm of award winning artist and photographer Melissa Markle. From the very moment your family steps our studio, they will be transported to a magical world of pure imagination.

The Magic of Santa Session is a fun, interactive, knee-slapping, must-experience holiday adventure, and Melissa goes above and beyond to make sure your family has a great time during your session.

After checking in, your magical session begins with a hunt for Santa's secret list of all the good boys and girls. Children may present their wish list, read a story or chat with Santa about the North Pole, and much more!

Melissa loves to sneak in a gift to surprise your children. We also welcome families, couples or even businesses to experience Santa’s magic. Each year, the proceeds from our Magic of Santa sessions are donated to one of our local Peoria area charities that support children in our community. This is something we donate our time, talents, and resources to give to you as our token of gratitude for donating to our local children's charities here in Peoria.

Sessions are run by appointment only with limited availability and are available until sold out.

Christmas in July

Reserve your session with Santa

It's Christmas in July at M3 Creative Portraits... what does that mean?  You can reserve your Magic of Santa session for December 2022 early to secure your spot!  These sessions are limited in number every season, so you will definitely want to consider pre-registering for the sessions now to secure your spot.

How does it work?
Register and reserve your time with Santa in July with a $50 non-refundable retainer.  We will keep that spot saved in your name and ready for you.  The balance of your Magic of Santa Session will be due no later than 1 week prior to the session date. Unpaid balances will forfeit their session and the retainer.
