None of my pictures are professionally done.  They're either shot by me or some friends with my fujifilm finepix s1500 10mp camera. Not too bad of quality, but I want some opinions thus far.... until I get the time to get to a photographer around here.

Thanks ^.^

You can take good pictures with that camera, but only if you understand the lighting around you.  Many of the photos have either blown out highlights or way under exposed shadows.  Look at some on line lighting tutorials.  Aside from the lightning, there are flashes of good emotion in some shots.  Good features and shape also. With some experience and hard work, you might do well. Keep shooting.

You asked for it.

The photography in your port is totally amateur, in fact awful.  Not a single one of the photos should be in your port, and they are not even worthy of a critique.  As a llama you have a lot to learn about posing, expressions, everything.  You say you need to find time to get to a photographer.  Find the time or don't bother.  Start learning something about llamaing or don't bother.

Work on your facial expressions - practice in front of a mirror or something. Your posing needs work as well but I would mainly focus on bringing some sort of emotion to your face. Any emotion really, your pictures seem pretty deadpan.

Everything this guy said is true.  They're not being mean, just not pulling punches.

Absolutely, I understand. I ask because I want to be better, regardless of where I'm starting.
Thanks for all the input, everyone.
