The Alpaca Photo Shoot

Last week I had the opportunity to do a photo shoot for a friend. She raises alpacas and I agreed to try to get some pictures of them, so we headed out there and spent almost two hours snapping shots of them all. In case you're not familiar with alpacas--and I'm sure you all are!--they're a smaller relative of the llama. They're really cute, kind of funny-looking things. Mostly they didn't pay much attention to the camera, but sometimes they would get curious. If I got too close, though, they would shy away.

First we did the the females and babies (called crias). The crias were really cute. It was fun trying to catch action shots of them running and jumping around the pasture.

I loved getting up-close face shots. Their expressions are so hilarious! These were some of my favorites.

After that we took pictures of the males. We got some wide shots, and as well as some nice up close shots.

It was a lot of fun. Thanks, Mrs. Miller, for the great opportunity. Hopefully the pictures will be useful to you!
