One of my favorite memories as a child was going to the local mall during the fall and getting so excited seeing the Christmas decorations were up in the department stores. This always signified the start of the holiday season for me, and now each year it seems that those iconic decorations and music are popping up in stores earlier and earlier (seems like before Halloween sometimes!). Another symbol of the season for many of us is when Santas come to the mall to receive wish lists from little ones and have their pictures taken on his lap. I’m sure everyone has seen one of these Santa-picture stands in their local mall, and chances are it is operated by Cherry Hill Photo Enterprises.

Cherry Hill Photo has placed over 500 naturally bearded Santas at venues throughout the U.S. and Canada and is the first holiday photo business to develop software and technology to use digital photography for holiday photo operations. The company is excited to announce the launch of its free MyHolidayMoments app for iOS and Android, and I had the pleasure to check it out!

With all of the shopping, baking, decorating and endless to-do lists that often go along with the holiday season, this app can make your life a lot easier when it comes to getting adorable pictures of your kids with Santa to keep as memories. MyHolidayMoments allows users to retrieve their child’s Santa photo after the visit on a smartphone or tablet to share with friends and family. One of the great things is that the majority of U.S.-based malls will have the app integrated into their Santa experience.

The app also includes fun features to keep your family busy while waiting to visit Santa, such as a tic-tac-toe game, Santa jokes, a Santa tracker, and an “email Santa” feature that allows kids to write to Santa and receive a reply! You can find one of their locations using the app, as it features a GPS to tell you where the nearest photo location as well as photo package pricing so you can check it out before you go. If Santa photos are in your holiday plans this year, then MyHolidayMoments is a must to help you save precious time and have fun with your family while doing it! And the best part… the app is FREE and features a $2 discount coupon!

    I love the photos that my husband and I get each Christmas with our 3 grandchildren. I wil continue to have them taken as long as my little ones will allow. Great job! The people are truly kind and make you feel special as they take the photos.
