My name is Kara, and I own Kara Reese Photography in Waukesha, Wisconsin. I started A Moment With Santa® in 2016 because I wanted to create a timeless, artistic portrait of my toddler with Santa Claus - something less "basic mini-session" and more "Norman Rockwell." Since then, I've photographed over a hundred families with our exclusive Old World Santa. I'd love to photograph yours, too.

My approach to these portrait sessions is simple: give children and families an experience they will remember forever. Make the kids feel special and comfortable. 

I have a child on the autism spectrum, and sometimes new experiences and new people can be challenging for kids like him. I've been able to work with many families who also have neurodivergent children over the years, and I have received many compliments on how comfortable their kids were around me. I love that! That's my #1 goal.

My other goal is always to provide heirloom-quality artwork to my clients. Many of the people who come to us for their Christmas Portraits enjoy using the photos digitally, but also as Christmas art to decorate their home with love. We offer a beautiful selection of wall art, small prints, and storybook albums at our sessions - truly something for everyone.
