Anne Hepfer's Christmas Portrait

Frame the kids' Santa picture each year to add a personal touch to a console or mantel.

"Even though it's a crazy time of year, we go to Toronto's Yorkdale Mall to have the kids' photo taken with Santa," says Toronto designer Anne Hepfer. "The nostalgia of a child believing in Santa brings tears to my eyes. We stand in line and they ask all kinds of questions about Santa. The only reason I'm in this photo is because they wouldn't have their photo taken without me in it! I then frame the photo and display it in the living room for the holiday season."
