Father Christmas Photos

Father Christmas Photos
Start a new holiday traditionSanta Claus as we know him today didn’t exist until the 1950’s, prior to that he wore a long robe and went by the name: Father Christmas. This holiday season Jacki Jacobs Photography will be taking families back to the Victorian Era to meet this jolly fellow and capture the moment with a quick picture.Our depiction of this historic character is a younger man with a light green and gold dressing gown. He enjoys a good laugh and is a big fan of meat pies and a good wassail. We have set the scene in his quaint cottage with a rustic Victorian Christmas feel. We even have a snowy landscape for some of our additional photo opportunities. Packages and ala carte options will be available should parents hope to purchase prints and products of their little ones for the holidays.

November 29th from noon to 6pm, December 6th and 20th from noon to 3pm, we invite families to come to Groundings at 7 Main Street in Florence MA to have their pictures taken with Father Christmas for $10. We will also be offering mini holiday photo shoots.

We encourage guests to call in advance to make sure everyone gets a chance to be photographed. We believe this event will be as popular, if not more so, than it has been in the past.
