There should really be wine served at malls to those 21+ in the line to see Santa. There you are, holding your children’s huge, puffy, winter coats, your two year old is licking the railing and most likely contracting some sort of illness while you look down in the stroller and know your sweet bambino just made a ginormous mess in her pants. You can only pray that the diaper contained it and there is no leakage on those new white cable-knit tights she has on. It’s approximately 95 degrees, and you are about 43 people back in line to see St. Nick. “Yes, we’ll two glasses of chardonnay, here… right over here! Thanks!”
Our new friends at Little Nest Portrait Studio, who just opened in Chestnut Hill in late October, reached out to us to tell us about a new way to see Santa this year: A scheduled, 15 minute private photo session with Santa himself. Just your family, Santa, and one of the Little Nest’s talented photographers. (There is also a cute little craft area where your crew can write their letter to Santa, milk and cookies for everyone, and a potty right nearby in case your little one should need it!) The team at Little Nest recommends no more than five people in a shot, but can accommodate up to 10.
Here’s the cost- $59 for a high resolution digital photo (perfect for this year’s Christmas card) and a choice of two 5” x 7” prints, one 8” x 10” print or eight wallet sized prints. The sessions are by appointment only, and you can book by calling the studio at 267.385.6106.
Sessions are still available on: (Spaces are limited and filling up fast!)
- Friday, December 1st: 10AM-4PM
