How do you pose 6 dogs on the front porch of a house when they have no desire to do so? Two words...you don't. Hehe!!! This photo shoot was for some posters and advertisements for an upcoming contest to benefit the Cornelius Animal Shelter. The theme will be, "When you adopt a pet, you make your house a home." This is oh so true! What better way to illustrate that theme than to show a group of dogs posing together in front of a house? Well, that was the idea anyway. This little gang was so full of energy and had other plans. ;)

We had to abandon the posing and go back to what I do best...candids! Either way, these doggies were so cute and were more than happy to turn it on for the camera. I think we got some good images that the shelter will be able to use and hopefully raise a lot of money for a good cause!

Doesn't Parker (on the left) look like a fluffy little black bear?!? Adorable!

The sun peaking through the trees was making for some gorgeous lighting. I'm definitely going to practice this technique more...

I think the next set of pictures absolutely embodies the theme of the contest...

One last attempt to get them to pose together...
