Ridgeway Portrait Design - Santa's Workshop 

November 11th & 12th, 2017  

Our 4th annual Santa’s Workshop experience will be held November 11th, and November 12th, 2017. This highly anticipated event has sold out 3 years in a row and you don't want to end up on Santa's Naughty List, do you?

Remember the Days When Everything Was Magic? 

We do! That's why we are SO excited to announce that we have the most amazing opportunity coming your way. An experience like only Ridgeway Portrait Design in Maryville, Illinois can offer... 

This one will go down in your child's keepsake worthy memories as they look over Santa's "naughty and nice" list, hear about his reindeer, and maybe even find out some of Santa's special secrets! Your child will enjoy an incredible once in a lifetime trip to Santa's vintage toy inspired workshop for an interactive experience.

Santa personally sends an invitation to the child(ren) asking them to come to Mr. John's to help him finish up some toys because he's running behind.


Schedule NOW!

When they come in the day of the workshop they see Santa sitting there at his work bench working on toys. When he sees them, he invites them over to find their name on the good list and from there it is just magic! They will share cookies and milk with Santa, read with him and help him pack his bag and sprinkle his magic on the toys all before he says goodbye until Christmas Eve!

Santa Letter

Forget the slightly scary Santa at the mall, the long lines, screaming children and worn out looking elves behind the camera... and think warm cookies, milk and Santa who knows them by name, their favorite colors, toys and more!
This exclusive, one on one, experience with Santa creates beautiful custom photos that go beyond traditional "Santa Pictures" and into the realm of quality art & more importantly, lifetime memories.
