First of all, I have to share how much I love alpacas. I had a feeling I would like them, but when I saw one in person, I fell in love instantly.
I was asked to photograph a travel piece about Mineral Point, Wisconsin for Minnesota Monthly this past June. It was a dream assignment. I took the day, drove an hour to Mineral Point to talk with locals and find the hidden secrets of the small artsy town tucked away in Wisconsin. There was a little boutique store called Bobbi Jo’s Interiors on Main Street. The owner, Bobbi Jo, showed me the local pieces she had in the store … one of which was a colorful and furry pin made with alpaca fleece. I quickly asked if she had the number for the alpaca owners because I knew it would be a great opportunity to see and photograph them! Gosh they are cute! I almost only put photos up of the alpacas, but there are more here from my time in Mineral Point.
The article will hopefully run in Minnesota Monthly soon!
