Kid Photos Taken With Baby Jesus

Compiled From Wire Services

Cherie Shelor was standing in line with her son to get his picture taken with a shopping mall Santa when she wondered: “What does this man in red have to do with Christmas, to me?”

“The answer was nothing,” said Shelor, who thinks taking children to be photographed with Santas misses the point of Christmas.

So she developed an alternative - a photo with baby Jesus.

Shelor is charging children $1 to dress up in colorful robes and have their photo taken in a shed that replicates where Jesus was born. The children stand next to a cradle with a baby doll inside.
