alpacas

I have been so bad about posting lately. With Brinley's school, being pregnant, being a photographer, running errands for Matt, not feeling all that well, and trying to keep my house clean, I just haven't had time to just sit and post.
I am taking a few minutes out of hectic day of going to the bank for Matt, going to Costco, editing pictures, sending off pictures, picking up Cody from school, taking Cody to the dentist, getting the kidlings a snack, throwing up, running to the scrapbook store for some last minute craft supplies (for a craft to show you later) and all while I have had braxton hicks one after the other ALL DAY...don't worry, I know what real ones feel like...I am taking a well needed break.
But on to my alpaca post... Monday I took senior pictures for one of my absolutely GORGEOUS nieces... Natalie, who looks JUST LIKE her mother, Lori. Talk about a super easy subject to shoot. She's a natural. I have more pictures to post later.
She lives on this farm, well, it's slowly becoming a farm with all the animals they let hang out on their property, and it is the coolest place to take photos. This year, they have 5 alpacas and a couple of horses. While we were out in the fields, the alpacas started following us. They are a hilarious animal...
with a bad haircut. They would not leave us alone.
This one in particular loved having it's picture taken and smiled for the camera. These have got to be the nicest animal ever. They are really cute and sweet. We used to have a really ugly dog, named Zach, that totally looked like an alpaca or a llama.
When meeting an alpaca for the first time, you don't put your hand out to touch it, you stick your face down by their face and touch noses...interesting huh? but don't try to catch a whiff of their breath, it's not pleasant.
