My mom was a professional photographer when we were growing up and therefore I got to see all kinds of neat things she did with her photographs. My favorite though had to be the picture that would be waiting for us Christmas Morning to show how she captured Santa putting gifts under the tree.
Of course, now I know that it was simply my mom dressed up and using a timer to snap the picture as she put out presents.
Now, I am no professional when it comes to taking pictures, nor am I inclined to dress up as Santa while putting out the gifts. Thankfully a couple years ago I was introduced to a great online service that allows me to insert Santa into my own pictures making it look like the Jolly fellow really did put presents under the tree. I even created a picture showing him taking a nap on our couch . The kids thought that was quite funny.
The best part though, right now you can create photos for FREE! The great folks at I caught Santa are celebrating their 5th year anniversary by letting everyone catch Santa for FREE through to December 10th.

So be sure to take an outdoor picture and add Rudolph to your Winter Wonderland to share even more magic for your children.
