Rod Kaye Photography Santa Portrait Testimonials
We loved our visit with Santa! It exceeded our expectations! To start, it was at Bulloch Hall in the gorgeous historic downtown Roswell. We had an appointment time, no wait like at the mall, and it was such a personable experience! The kids had 20 quality minutes to get amazing pictures taken & talk to him as much as they wanted about what they wanted for Christmas & how their year was! We will definitely be back next year! He truly is the REAL Santa!!
"Rod Kaye is an incredible photographer and this venue was beautiful and charming. The Santa is the most real (and funny!) Santa that we have ever encountered. The pictures were amazing. This was a memorable event and it will certainly be a new Christmas tradition for our family!"
Having pictures with Santa and Rod has now become a family tradition! There is no beating the convenience and professionalism of this duo! Santa is a natural and Rod is truly talented! Such a pleasant experience each year - we will continue to keep coming back! We also have recommended this special find to our neighbors and friends (ps - our neighbors came to see you on Saturday at our recommendation!).
Last year our experience with the mall Santa was commercial, not personal and my boys were scared. Not how we want our kids to think about Santa. Our experience with Rod and Santa this year almost brought tears to my eyes. The session was unbelievably personal, our boys truly enjoyed talking and interacting with Santa, the photos were beautiful and I can't image going anywhere else to have our Santa photos. My youngest was really timid but Santa got him to warm right up and he was in his lap in minutes. We've told everyone about our experience and now we wish we had selfishly kept this to ourselves. Thank you so much for making a truly wonderful Christmas memory for our boys and for my husband and me.
We have made our Santa Photos with Rod at Bulloch Hall an annual tradition for our family that we look forward to each year. The experience is magical - such a beautiful setting at Bulloch Hall, and Rod and Santa are a great team! We always have fun and our daughter really enjoys the experience. Not to mention the convenience of having a set appointment time without having to endure the frustration of the mall photos. We truly enjoy getting wonderful, high quality photos each year at Christmas with Rod. Thank you!!
"This has by far been the BEST Santa experience any of us have ever had! The old plantation home in a natural & peaceful setting made the experience feel "real." Santa was as real as they come. My daughter (who is 6 & has said the mall Santa's can't be real because santa can't sit at a mall all Christmas season) was convinced this is the real Santa because "he is only visiting for 2 days & he knew I had an American Girl doll & let me pull his beard!" It was magical for her. I loved how personable & sweet Santa was towards my 3 kids & how patient with the little ones he is as well. The photographer, Rod, made this an easy & wonderful experience & I can't say enough about the incredible photos that I will forever cherish. My husband, who absolutely HATES visiting the mall any time of year, especially to wait in a long line to see Santa (I assume other men have similar feelings), said we are DONE with mall Santa visits & he can't wait to bring our kids back next year. LOVED this experience & will recommend to everyone I know for next year!" Thank you again!
This was our second year of visiting Santa at Bulloch Hall, and I have to say that the entire experience is magical not only for the children but for the entire family. It is a gorgeous setting and Santa makes you truly believe. Rod does an AMAZING job of capturing the twinkle in my children's eyes and the sheer joy and wonder as they have time to interact and engage with Santa. The session is an incredible experience with pictures that will last a lifetime. We cannot thank Rod and Santa enough for creating such special memories for our family.
This was a wonderful experience for the kids and the parents. Having an appointment and not waiting in line in a busy mall was great! We were not rushed and the kids had plenty of time to warm up to Santa and talk to him. Santa was so lively and interactive that they are still talking about their visit with him. The best part was how pretty the pictures are. These will be treasured for years to come!
We absolutely loved our first Santa visit photos with Rod. Unlike the traditional mall Santa, this experience was personalized, laid back, professional, easy, and fun! I especially loved the fact that there weren't crazy lines or crowds, the time with Santa wasn't rushed at all, and we were able to capture the most adorable pictures with our little girl. Also, this Santa is by far the best Santa we've seen. Wow. We are beyond happy with our experience, and already have friends asking where they can have the same pictures made. I will definitely be using and recommending Rod for future photography sessions!
"We love taking our Santa photos with Rod Kaye each year! The scenic Bulloch Hall location provides a warm, authentic backdrop to our sessions; and “Santa Claus” could easily pass for the real thing! We’ve had three Christmas sessions with Rod now, and our toddler son has posed with the same Santa every time. Our friends and family regularly compliment the quality of our Christmas photos, and we’ll continue using Rod Kaye for future holiday seasons.”
What a wonderful experience, and one that we hope to make a tradition for at least the next decade or so ;) I cannot tell you how pleased we are- what a wonderful way to capture this special moment. All of the components (your photography style, the PERFECT Santa, and the historic setting) make for timeless Norman Rockwell style images- we will certainly cherish them forever.
