It’s that magical time of the year when families start new traditions or maintain those that have been passed down for generations.

Paying a visit to Jolly Old Saint Nicholas is a popular Christmas tradition that tends to bring smiles to children’s faces and leaves them with a lasting memory. The hugs, the sharing of the wish lists, the smiles and of course the photographs that capture the memory are often all part of this special experience.

Santa Photo Central, a division of Champion Digital Photography, has many years of experience in offering this service to Westman residents. Owner Amber White said the experience that they offer families is completely different from what you’ll find anywhere else.

“It’s not just about standing line, getting a minute or two with Santa and then moving on. What we offer is basically a private visit with a very kind, authentic-looking Santa. The children aren’t rushed and can spend quality time with him. Sometimes he even dances and sings with the children or reads them stories,” said White.

Santa Photo Central is conveniently located in the Town Centre. Access to the pop-up location is available through the Parkade only; be sure to ask for a token to take advantage of the free parking.

In addition to getting quality photos and spending time with Santa Claus, Santa Photo Central also provides children with free homemade cookies and they have different themed playrooms and areas to make their visit even more special.

Photos are printed within minutes and there are a variety of options and packages to choose from. The best part is, you don’t have to make an appointment. Just stop in (during regular business hours) and Santa’s helpers will professionally capture your little ones visit with Santa.

They also have a fantastic selection of gift items including photo frames, ornaments, snow globes, and stuffed animals.

There are also special dates, such as Pet Photos with Santa (Dec 9) that are coming up in December.
