Holiday Photo Shoots

  • Museum of Old Newbury 98 High Street Newburyport, MA 01950 (map)

Picture yourself stepping into a Christmas card come to life, and book your holiday photo shoot at the Museum of Old Newbury! The historic Cushing House's parlor is the perfect setting for cozy yet elegant family photos, complete with a beautifully decorated tree and charming holiday touches.

Each holiday season, the Cushing House becomes a breathtaking holiday showpiece thanks to the creative talents of the Newburyport Garden Club, the Newburyport Horticultural Society, the Newbury Garden Club, and the West Newbury Garden Club. The clubs find inspiration for their displays in the museum’s collection, incorporating antique toys and period furnishings alongside current design elements like strings of twinkling lights and exotic floral displays. Each club approaches its project with creativity and vision, and each space holds delightful new surprises every year.

Twenty-minute photo sessions in the decorated Cushing parlor with photographers Dan Fionte and Bob Watts are available from 3pm-7pm. An $85 package includes one 8x10 print and digital photo file to make additional prints as desired. Both will be delivered by December 19. Advance reservations are required. Purchase tickets below.
