Gingerbread Village Christmas Photos | Newington, CT
2020 brought such a year of change, and the one constant that has always been there was in jeopardy of not occurring. Our annual Santa Experience, Family Christmas Portraits, & Pet Christmas fundraiser have always been something to look forward to. But with COVID-19, rising cases and possible restrictions and added precautions made us wonder if we’d be able to have our events safely at all. But, we knew that with the right procedures it was possible. 2020 became the year of our next custom designed theme – Gingerbread Village Christmas Photos. Requested by many longtime clients, we wanted to build something as realistic as possible with as many added features and surprises for the children as possible. And once again, we even surprised ourselves with the results! Using a primarily red and white color scheme with plenty of peppermints and candies, we brought a lighter, brighter, and completely colorful scene for families to enjoy this year. Some things were different – added buffers for cleaning limited our appointment slots, the added expenses of air purifiers, an exhaust fan continuously running above the set, and needing to contact clients to enter from their vehicles. But the thing that didn’t change was the magic of the experience. Clients were so happy and appreciative of having a short opportunity for some normalcy in a year of such uncertainty and change. And giving their children a magical day. Over the course of 3 events, we saw over 60 different families and produced many Christmas cards and gifts afterwards as well. We can’t share all of their images, but here are just some of the many magical moments from our gingerbread village Christmas photos holiday sessions!
