At only 9 months old, Esme Cope is too young to understand the magical concept behind the famous ‘Elf On The Shelf’ Christmas decoration and toy. Instead, her parents decided to make her an elf and post a photo of the their daughter in a new location every day.
Her Mother Gabi Cope, who is a professional photographer, shoots Esme’s duty work as Santa’s elf. She wears a red tiny suit and swings across ceilings, hides inside bags and even plays under the Christmas Tree. One thing is for sure is that this little helper is bringing the holiday spirit the cutest way possible.
Esme’s mother said she was inspired to photograph her adorable daughter as an elf because people have said that she “lights up a room.”
“We thought dressing her up as ‘Esme on the Shelf’ would spread that light and cheer with others.”
