Ride with Santa is this year’s new feature for Christmas portraits at Mark Kidd Studios.

Our 1890’s one horse open sleigh and Santa will take off Saturday October 27th my birthday by the way for an hour of jolly good times with our one and only Santa.

We will have a new set this year with Ride with Santa where each child will have the opportunity to drive the sleigh under Santa’s supervision.

Due to the popularity of Santa’s Cabin in the woods set from last year the visit will begin with a stop at Santa’s Cabin where the Naughty and Nice list will be checked and the official gift list for the Nice children will be updated.

Reading the operations manual in the form of the Night Before Christmas Santa will check his charts with the little one’s help and plan his route. Just before take-off a pre-flight checklist and flight plan filed and then on our way to all the good little boys and girls home where packages will be dropped.

Mark Kidd Studios is a client driven portrait studio in Lexington, Kentucky. Located on in a beautiful historic part of Lexington, Mark and Stella have created an outdoor portrait garden that has been continually updated for many years. In addition, their beautiful studio  allows them to create exquisite portraits indoors as well.


Mark and Stella strongly believe that their portraits are not complete until they are exclusively printed for their clients’ families to enjoy not just right now, but for the generations that come after them.

In order to present you with the finest portraits available, our portrait work varies in styles and presentation. We are now creating exclusively for you, our signature Masterpiece Portraits.

Whether in the studio, outdoors or at your home location, these portraits are the best of both worlds.

Using current methods, we are creating art pieces that reflect the true likeness of your loved one along with the look of a beautiful painting.  This Masterpiece process takes several weeks time and is achieved through the artistic eye of Mark and Stella.

If you love traditional photographic pieces, they are certainly available to you, but, these Masterpiece Portraits have become an integral part of our artistic style.

Thanks for visiting our site and God bless you!

Mark and Stella Kidd
