My amazing mother-in-law has a budding organization/business called Nimby Acre, home to a handful of llamas and one adorable alpaca. Every time we visit, my toddler loses her mind with happiness because she gets to feed (and in some cases ride) a llama. Talk about kiddo heaven! And being the city dweller I am, I don’t often get the opportunity to get up close and personal portraits of members of the animal kingdom. So here are a few of the images the animals and I made together over Christmas. They really are quite majestic… and a little goofy! (And notice the alternate watermark that’s in the running for 2015… there’s nothing like sitting cozy on a winter night playing with photoshop).
