We are a successful small local family business just starting our fifth year. Last year we served nearly 500 groups and took over 1,000 photos. One only need read our reviews to see why. We attribute our success to our warm, friendly environment where the children play rather than standing in line for hours one of those large mass production out-of-state operations and having to buy a whole package just to get the one or two photos that they really wanted. Our Santa with 14 years experience, including Radio City Music Hall, was born right here in Billings. We use dye sublimation printers that print a photo in 8 seconds. They are waterproof plastic rather than paper or ink and are rated to be light fast for 100 years. That means that they will never fade, scratch or yellow in our life times! The kids adore Mrs. Claus who brings warmth and friendliness to our shop which we have fancifully decorated, turning it into Santa's workshop where the children play inside rather than having it as a backdrop for photos. By the time our Santa is done, the child skips back to the parents with shiny eyes saying "He's the real Santa." They are completely happy even if it is just for a moment, but those moments are what get us all through life. What we are selling is an experience rather than just photos and that's what parents come for and are willing to pay for year after year.They come to give their children a once a year experience that can't be found anyone else. Rather than crying because they don't want to come here, they cry because they don't want to leave! We are very proud of that.
