Default Holidays activities-Santa's photographer

The last few years, I've volunteered to be Santa's photographer at the Barnstable Village Stroll. It's a good cause, as the Cape Cod Art Association sponsors the event and also pays for Santa to come and have children photographed with him. The photographs are provided to the parents at no cost.

Each year, I get a surprise or two with this year being no different. One of the first people in line was a lady that wanted to have her dog sit on Santa's lap.
Fortunately both the dog and Santa reached an agreement and this is the result.

I agree a wonderful shot, with Santa's eyes saying everything.

That's different, a cute idea. It would make a good Christmas card for the owner.

Good morning all. Thanks for looking. And, yes, Leslie I think that was the lady's intent.

Thanks, Wizzard.

I photographed a total of 83 children, 3 families and 1 dog in a span of 2hours that night. This one was certainly the more interesting one.

Ditto to all that's been said.

By the way, Happy New Bac'Tun to every one. Although the day isn't over, yet, we seem to have survived.
