Don’t panic, however, it is less than a month until Christmas! Time to get out and check out some Christmas lights, book a time with Santa, and schedule the family photos! There are a few problems with the list… where do you go? Do you really want to wait 3 hours in line at the Mall with the kids? Who do you know with a cute backdrop for those family photos? Also, who the heck will take the pictures for us? What if I tell you that you can do that all at Miracle at Big Rock in St. Croix Falls, Wisconsin?
Cookies with Santa is a PRIVATE encounter with the big man in red himself, the one and only Santa Claus! During your 15-minute session, you are whisked away into a cozy cottage decked out in Buffalo Plaid, a roaring fireplace, and the big man waiting for you and your kids! During your booking, details about your family are asked so Santa can be prepped on just what your kids want for the holiday season, making this encounter that much better.
During your time Santa interacts with your kids, reading them a story and offering cookies that Mrs. Claus made herself from the North Pole! During this time, Wendy Maybury, a local comedian and professional photographer, from Desire The Image capture every little detail of your time so you do not have to worry about having your phone out and taking away from the time well spent with your kids!
Wendy and Anthony from Desire The Image make sure to get great shots of your family and get them back to you EXTREMELY quickly! We had our time slot at 6p last night, and we had all of our photos for download by 7p! The fine print states that they have up to 5 days to get you your photos, but they seem to have some special elves helping to enhance your photos to get them to you as fast as possible!
The entire encounter has a price tag starting out at $149 for up to 6 people and includes your session, time with Santa, the cookies, and a few photos! For just a bit more, you get access to download all the photos that were taken with a written release to print the photos on your own!
Overall, Cookies with Santa is a one-stop shop that takes away the hassle that no one cares about this time of the year! Miracle at Big Rock is our favorite holiday tradition, and Cookies with Santa is at the top of the list of things to do while we are there! Based on these amazing photos, I am sure you can agree that Cookies with Santa and Desire The Image should be at the top of YOUR holiday list this year!
