Due to the rainy weather we rescheduled our Alpaca Photoshoot for May 11 near Pittsburgh, PA!

Miele Moda, Honeydrops Designs and Laura Mares Photography are excited to announce a fashion photoshoot on an alpaca farm on May 11.

We have put a lot of heart and soul into the planning and making of this Alpaca Fashion Photoshoot. We are beyond excited to announce the concrete details, and hope you are just as enthusiastic as we are. This shoot will entail the great outdoors, a local alpaca farm, wearing beautiful fashion dresses, all while having beautiful portraits taken to remember the entire experience. 

Is this session the right fit for you? 

It is important for the young model to remember that they must be brave, able to get a little dirty, and be flexible. So it is important to remember that these Alpacas are more energetic than what you may have seen at a petting zoo. They are kind and cute, but it is important not to be spooked if they start to run away or make sudden movements. I was excited to hear that alpacas do not bite! In fact since they only have lower teeth, it is physically impossible to bite.

The children will arrive at the farm in the late afternoon/early evening. Exact details will be coming. The girls will get their dresses from Miele Moda and Honeydrops design head pieces. A pop-up tent will be available for parents to help their child get dressed and ready for their photo shoot. Light colored shoes are suggested but bear in mind they may get dirty due to the fact we will be at a farm.

Since we are on a working farm, it is important to be cautious with your dresses to avoid getting very dirty/muddy. It is also important to always stay flexible with plans, and be ready with a smile. 🙂 We know that this is going to be a great experience for all girls choosing to attend, and hope that by adhering to these suggestions, the photoshoot will be that much better.
