Santa in the Sand
Santa in the Sand combines the traditional Santa visit and a Family Portrait Shoot all in one stress free experience. During booking process, you are encouraged to share something about each child, for instance; favorite cartoon, favorite athlete, or maybe you’d like Santa to acknowlede something special that may have just recently occurred. Santa takes this information and uses it to customize your children’s visit. While Santa is working his magic, I’m paying close attention to the moments as they unfold, capturing the expressions and pure joy in you and your children’s faces as each of you enjoy your visit with us at Santa in the Sand.

I am Santa Greg Ferguson, “The Original” Santa in the Sand. I Started
portraying the Jolly Ole guy 38 years ago when I found a suit on the
clearance rack at a store. I surprised my daughter and her Classmates
at her preschool that year. Then seven years ago while shopping
I found a suit at Target on the clearance rack. I bought it and did
a few Family parties for my extended family. My wife saw how much I
enjoyed it and asked if I ever thought of doing it professionally. I did
some internet searching and found the Fraternal Order of Real Bearded
Santa’s. By joining the group I learned a lot. I bought an Adele’s of
Hollywood suit, had some pictures taken and started booking my own gigs.
I did more research and did Mall relief for one of the Photo companies.
In June of 2015 during a chance meeting I met Mark and
Santa in The Sand was born. I have enjoyed working with Mark so much I
consider him Family. I portray Santa not for myself but for the joy it
brings when you make a Child’s dreams come true. I should mention
that I have 16 Grandchildren. My younger Grandchildren tell their friends that their
Grandfather is Santa Claus. I love the feeling of Christmas, the
excitement of children of all ages. May the love you feel at Christmas
carry you through the rest of the year.
