This is Peaches. Officially, her name is Georgia’s Peaches, since her mama is Georgia Rain. She’s the youngest of our three baby alpacas. She was born the first week in September.

Cute, huh? But then every baby alpaca I’ve ever seen is a cutie.

In my last post, I talked about capturing “catch light,” or highlights, in the eyes of people and animals in photography portraiture.

This photo of Peaches is a decent example of catch light.

Keep taking pictures. Keep experimenting!

  1. Several times my 4 year old has asked me, “Mommy, why do alpacas always look like they’re smiling?” : )
