Long ago, a brave little girl named Anja wanted to be one of Santa’s elves.

From a red bird to a polar bear to a reindeer, a menagerie of winter animals help Anja make her way to Santa…

“The Christmas Wish” is a family collaboration with husband and wife team Lori Evert and Per Breiehagen together with their adorable daughter Anja.
Lori, who’s the author of the book, is a stylist, was originally inspired by the beauty and magic of an image of Anja with a reindeer. Her photographer husband Per, who grew up in the small mountain village of Ål, Norway surrounded by Norwegian fairytales and folk lore about elves, trolls and other creatures have inspired his narratives, instilling a sense of magic and mystery in his imagery. But what truly inspired him was seeing his daughter Anja’s love of the outdoors, winter and the snow.

The Christams Wish is available from leading book shops as well as on Amazon
