Capturing the magic of Christmas through the eyes of a child is a powerful thing. As adults, we want to hold on to that magic and keep it throughout the years. Vincent Pearson, renowned artist, photographer and owner of Pearson Portrait Design in Solon, has created an opportunity for families to seize those moments. The Wonder of Santa fine art portrait experience is a chance for children to engage with Santa Claus himself in an enchanted Christmas setting and discover the meaning and magic of the holiday.

“My career as a designer and photographer has taken me all over the world,” says Vincent. “I decided to focus solely on photography eight years ago and felt the desire to do something unique and meaningful for families.”

With that goal in mind Vincent chose holiday portraiture and developed the concept of the Wonder of Santa.

“I designed a Santa’s workshop set over the course of two years,” says Vincent. “I’ve achieved a dream-like setting for your children.”

For one full hour, your child takes part in a night before Christmas dream where they awake in Santa’s workshop and discover they are included on Santa’s “nice list” before the adventure begins. All the while, Vincent is snapping away, catching every wide-eyed moment as your child is captivated by the magic. Each Wonder of Santa 60-minute sitting includes Santa’s Magical Gift Set and audio storybook, your child’s personalized wish book, a complimentary 8x10 print of your choice upon placing your order and a $100 credit toward a final order.

“Your child follows the story line I developed where they spend this precious hour with Santa Claus who presents them with a magic keepsake box and a wish book where the child, parents and grandparents can all record their own wishes for that child,” says Vincent. “I capture it all and create stunning, nostalgic, fine art wall portraits for your family.”

Santa continues the adventure with a phone call to his right-hand elf, Bernard, who has just “activated” your child’s wishes to be granted. The adventure ends with Santa embarking on his magical trip around the globe.

“The children also have a moment with Santa before they share milk and cookies where a prayer is said by Santa and the story of the first Christmas is read from the Bible,” says Vincent. “If this is not something that’s a fit for your family, there is a non-religious, whimsical book version available.”

Before your Wonder of Santa sitting, a consultation takes place with Vincent so parents know just what to expect from their child’s time spent in Santa’s workshop.

“It’s during this consult that I get the information I need to tailor each sitting to your family,” says Vincent. “Things like how many children, ages and special considerations are discussed. Each child also receives a beautifully handmade pajama set or nightgown to wear during the shoot. After all, this is their dream.”

Everything included in Santa’s workshop is of the highest quality in order to enhance the end product—your heirloom fine art wall portraits. Items such as holiday cards and more are also available.

“This is so much more than your typical mall Santa photo,” says Vincent. “I’m directing this shoot where your child is the star. And I am honored to capture these moments on film and create these joyful, artistic heirlooms for your family to share for generations.”
