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.
