I have photographed for Carlton Cellars in the past, but this time Robin wanted to focus on the  menagerie of donkeys, goats, chickens, cats and the vineyard dog, Coltrane. While Dave just wanted a portrait of him with Robin and Coltrane in the vineyard,  on my wish list was a family portrait featuring as many of the animals that we could possibly assemble and that would cooperate to some degree. I think we were able to accomplish what every one wanted from the photo shoot.  It actually ended up as 2 shoots because on the first day a goat  escaped from the coral  and poor Robin ended up with 2 black eyes trying to entice, beg, and lasso the goat back to where he was suppose to be and not  free and  roaming through the vineyard.  I was not able to finish up what we wanted to do until she healed. Yes, it was an adventure!
