Shopping Spotlight: Get a Keepsake Photo of Santa 

Real Life Moment Photography Studio in Mount Greenwood offers unique holiday photo sessions featuring fun and interactive experiences with the guest of the season: Santa Claus.  

Real Life Moment Photography Studio is owned and operated by Bridget Forbes, who offers holiday photo sessions with a real-life Santa Claus who interacts with children and listens to their holiday wishes. For a favorite holiday photo setting, Forbes brings in cookie dough and snaps away while Santa and children roll it out into holiday treats. Other props may include books that Santa reads to children, a bench to “rest” on, fresh baked cookies to sprinkle, Christmas caroling and dancing.  

Forbes partners with Marty Nolan, a Mount Greenwood native with years of experience as the Water Tower Place Santa Claus, working with children to provide memorable one-on-one photos with Old St. Nick.  

Santa photography sessions are 20 minutes in length, and bookings are available at and scheduled on weekends only. Sessions are $300 and include 10 digital images.
