Santa Kennison began portraying Santa professionally in December 1998. He is a second generation Santa Claus, continuing the legacy of his father, Santa Jim Kyle (1944-2011).
Santa Kennison encourages families to consider a home visit from Santa over the traditional mall visit. Why? It simply allows for a more memorable experience. When Santa comes to your house, your children receive personalized attention. Limitless photos & video, infinite laughter, LIFETIME memories.
Santa Kennison is available for in-home visits, company parties, fund-raisers, neighborhood associations, tree lightings, parades. Area photographers – please call or email to discuss Santa sitting for your clients’ family Christmas card photos or portraits.
