With dozens of Santa’s Grottos not opening this year due to the coronavirus pandemic a photography studio in Hertfordshire has stepped in to save the traditional Christmas portrait.

The Fresh Academy, in Watford, wanted to bring some cheer and a sprinkle of happiness to children ahead of the festive season.

Fresh CEO, Charlie Kaufman FSWPP Hon, said: "The Fresh Academy, Watford’s premier portrait studios wasn’t going to sit back and let these kids not experience the Grotto this year."

Three winter themed sets have been created

Charlie has commissioned his Click Props Backdrops team to build three winter themed sets within their Watford based studios.

He said: "With all the doom and gloom, we have had lots of families contact us saying that with the grottos not opening they had no way of getting their Christmas family photo.

"We asked our Click Props Backdrops team to create three amazing back drops to help families create the perfect family photo for Christmas.

"Bookings are being taken from October 31, right through November, people need to book online and pay online.
