While I was out of town my family went to Northgate Mall in North Seattle to get Santa photos taken. My husband had to get a sweater for my son and he purchased it at Gymboree who was having a 50% off sale. He’s adorable. My daughter’s dress is from JCPenney.
They went on a Saturday to get the photos with Santa and it was surprisingly only a 30 minute wait, which on a Saturday I think is amazing. My son was so hyped up about getting to see Santa. He had been asking me for a week to take him and any time we were near a Santa he wanted to go see him. Saturday was the first time we actually had time to take him, and guess what he did. He freaked out and was quite upset about having to sit next to Santa.
It’s a classic photo, tears, upset, and Zoe is as happy as she can be. Daddy did have a little chat with Miles and after the chat we got a smile out of him. But he’s still leaning as far away from Santa as he could.
It’s great that they went because the kids told Santa what they want for Christmas. Zoe wants a doll house and Miles wants candy. I have to say he’s not getting candy but she is getting a doll house. I’m sure Miles will love what he’s getting he just doesn’t realize he wants it. Compared to another mall Northgate Mall has a great price on photo packages.
Thank you Northgate Mall for this experience taking photos with Santa. Northgate mall covered the cost of the photos as part of the Northgate Mall ambassador program.

I want to steal your children and not in a creepy way lol
I am hoping that when we go to see Santa Claus this year at the mall that Zoe will not be as scared as she was last year. She loves Santa, but got really nervous when I left her on his lap so I could get out of the way for the picture.

Adorable photos, I love the cute boots they wore. Sadly, my grandson who just turned 9 has decided that Santa probably isn’t real and doesn’t want to go see him 🙁 However, he has agreed to pose in a Santa hat next to the tree for me, I’ll take it!
Great pictures! You kids look fabulous!
You kids look fabulous!
My kids don’t want to see Santa:( We had a horrible experience last year and both remember the horrible Santa that was there. Cute pictures!
The kids look so cute! I like how they are not sitting on “Santa Claus'” lap.
