Ashley and I met at spin group about a year ago and I think I'm speaking for us both when I say that we just hit it off from the beginning. You know when you meet someone and somehow know that you'll resonate incredibly well without even having talked for ten minutes? That was her.
We live an hour away from each other, but it's so nice to have a friend who's interested in fiber arts. She and her husband have an alpaca farm where they raise their own herd, breed them for fiber qualities, and board alpacas in need of a good home. This year she pulled Spring's first cria out by hand after a difficult labor, and they're expecting more baby alpacas around the time that her two-legged baby is due!
When she asked me if I'd take some photographs of her belly... ON her farm, can you guess what my answer was? There wasn't even a moment's hesitation!
