Transfor{M}ama Studio
2288 Central Avenue


We're thrilled to announce a new holiday event this year : Selfies with Santa! Typically we do mini Christmas sessions, but this year we're doing a twist on our annual event. Not only will you still get private time with Santa, but we're adding so much more ....

For only $30/family, entry to the event includes:

  • One on one time with Santa. Weather permitting, Santa will be OUTSIDE on the back patio of Transfor{M}ama studio. If we need to switch indoors, we'll have a PRIVATE ROOM where families one at a time will enter and spend quality time with good 'ole St. Nick. Plus, our Santa is the real deal! If you are a returning family, you'll remember just how amazing he is! These private encounters with Santa are special for all families but especially so for those still using extra covid cautions, families with kids with different & special abilities, and families who have children that may need some time to warm up to Santa.  
  • One on one time with Elsa. Brought to you by Dreams Do Come True Princesses, Elsa from Frozen will be on site to spend time with the kids. Take as many selfies or pictures as you'd like!elsa pictures
  • The Sven station -- come mix a bag of special reindeer food! Take it home along with special instructions on how to sprinkle it on your lawn on Christmas Eve. This station is brought to you in part by Knowledge Tree.sven station
  • Dear Santa, a letter writing station --- encourage your kid(s) to write a letter to Santa listing all their heart's desires for Christmas morning! The kids can mail the letter right then and there in our special North Pole mail box. (ppsst! We can sneak you the letter if you really want to know what your child says!)
  • Arrow Creative will be leading a station of holiday arts & crafts! Learn about all the art classes they offer (for all ages!), then make some memories to take home.
  • PLUS! Help yourself to our Cookies & Milk station. What's a holiday party without a sweet treat?!cookies and milk

A huge thanks to our venue host, Transfor{M}ama :

Transformama logoTransfor{M}ama is a work & play studio located in the heart of midtown. Just off Central Avenue, it's a place for moms to gather -- for networking, collaboration and support.  Invite a colleague or client for a 1:1 business meeting away from the bustle of a coffee shop. Sink into a cozy couch, catch up on emails, chat with other local moms.  Take comfort knowing that your little one is being cared for in "The Hive," an area designed for children to learn through structured play. Kid Care is offered on a daily or hourly basis. Fitness classes in the 600 sqft studio, include strength, cardio, yoga, and even Ballroom dancing! Tranfor{M}ama is also available to rent for private parties.

A huge thanks to our Santa sponsor, Coopertown Services :
