Photos with Santa (or without) at the Mommy Poppins Family Fun Holiday Event

Once Halloween ends there's not much time until the holiday scramble begins. So we want to help you cross one big thing off your seasonal to-do list early: your holiday photos and cards. At our second annual Mommy Poppins Holiday Photo Event on Saturday, November 16 at the Upper East Side Kidville location, your kids will love posing with our playful and fun Santa. (These won't be your traditional, boring seated photos!) Not into pics with the big red guy? You can have your children's portrait taken alone in front of a seasonal background. Big Apple Portraits is great at capturing joyful little faces, perfect for your holiday cards.

To make sure posing for holiday photos doesn't feel like a chore, we'll have fun family activities, like cookie decorating with Cookie Party, holiday crafts by Kidville, Mommy Poppins storytime and family goody bags. Bonus: This event will also help raise funds for the Food Bank For NYC to help more local families have a happy holiday season.

Read on for all of the details about our Holiday Photo Event or reserve your spot now.
