Santa Sessions with Irish Eyes Photography @ Irish Eyes Photography
Nov 16 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm

Come on over to Irish Eyes Photography’s Downtown Hingham studio and spend some time with the Big Guy himself. Move over mall Santa…this is the real experience you’ve been looking for. No lines. No gimmicks. Your children will have their own time with Santa to chat, explore, and share in his magic. Children of all ages are welcome though keep in mind your session won’t be posed; I will be candidly capturing the experience. I want to see the magic in your child’s eyes as they read a book with Santa or learn about the special tools he uses to make Christmas work like clockwork. Of course I’ll get a couple shots that are a little more traditional, but the real magic will be the honest belief and joy on your child’s face.

Sessions are 20 minutes long. They’re early enough in the year so you can use these for Christmas Cards, which you can also order and have designed just for you – right here at Irish Eyes Photography.

You will return to the studio two weeks later to view your gallery and order your prints, products, and Christmas Cards. No minimum purchase is required.

You don’t want to miss this one, folks. There are limited spots and established clients have already started booking so book yours ASAP!

Call me (Kerry) at 781-974-6783, or email me at kerry@irisheyesphotography.com to book your spot now!

2019 dates: November 16th and 17th

Afternoon with the Author: Amy Whorf McGuiggan presents Finding Emma

Finding Emma book cover

Saturday, November 16 at 3:00 — Hingham resident, Amy Whorf McGuiggan, author of My Provincetown: Memories of a Cape Cod Childhood, Take Me Out to the Ball Game: The Story of the Sensational Baseball Song, and Christmas in New England, will talk about her new book, Finding Emma: My Search for the Family My Grandfather Never Knew and the discoveries she made about her maternal grandfather’s family and ancestry.

Family members had always been told and willingly believed that John Joseph Osborne had grown up an orphan and an only child. Six years of painstaking research uncovered a different truth. Amy will ponder the question of whether learning and knowing something that was previously unknown – and that one has gone through life blissfully unaware of – matters.

Anyone who is researching their own family tree is encouraged to attend and share their personal journey.

Copies of Finding Emma will be available for purchase.
