ORIGINAL STORY: 11/2

Santa is a cool guy and all, but I think I would prefer a visit from Llama Santa!

Our favorite llama farm, Prairie Patch Farm in Cedar Rapids, announced this morning that they are offering Santa Llama Mini-Sessions with Lyndsey's PhotoCo ahead of their Llama Santa event. The sessions will take place from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. on December 1st and December 4th, so there are limited spots available. It's $199 for a 15-minute session and the post says:

"100 dollars will be due at the time of booking to secure your spot, with the remaining will be due the date of your session. Your Santa Llama Mini will include three high resolution digital mages of your choice from your final, edited gallery with the option to purchase additional images if you'd like."

Oh, and you'll get some hands-on llama time, too, which is a BLAST. Brain and I got to visit Prairie Patch Farm this summer with some friends and it was a great experience. I didn't realize llamas were so friendly and fun! They also enjoy hugs, so there were lots of those. Here are a few photos from our half-hour session back in June:

Brain & Courtlin Visit Prairie Patch Farm

Prairie Patch Farm is always offering unique llama experiences to visitors. In fact, they dressed them all up as the "Llamas of Oz" for "Llamaween" last week! They also offer llama hikes, Llama-Grams, llama Zoom sessions, and llama yoga, plus they run an Airbnb right next to the farm.

If you're interested in the Llama Santa Minis, you can emails lyndsey@lyndseysphotoco.com to reserve your spot. Get a peek at some past Llama Santa photos HERE.
