Monday Mischief: Fall Photo Shoot

We've had quite a few rainy, dreary days here lately... so when we had a little bit of dry weather on Saturday, I did some bribing got the dogs outside to pose for some fall photos! 

Now, when it comes to getting four furkids in one photo, the trick is to pray snap as many photos as possible... and hope you wind up with at least one shot in focus, with four dogs who are looking in relatively the same direction.  Eyes open and cute expressions are a bonus!

I always end up capturing a few where someone is getting up / moving around /running out of a shot...


Which then results in some that look like this...



Zeus is always Mr. Independent, and more often than not the missing 4th wheel in many shots.  Of course, he knows just how handsome he is all on his own.  I love the second shot below, where I caught him spying on his siblings as they were cooperating for Mommy posing for the camera.

Of course, we don't always need all four kids in the shot to get cute photos, right?

The end result was a good one this weekend.  I actually ended up with a solid 8 or 9 good shots of my kids together... success

So, I suppose my Lapdogs were pretty good, and not so mischievous this weekend.  At least not when it came to their photo shoot... be annoying to the humans while they were trying to watch TV is another story. 

The Lapdogs wanted everyone to know that today is their Grammy's birthday and they hope you will all wish her a very happy one!

Happy birthday to your mom!

You would not believe how many millions of pictures the professional photographer I hired a few years back had to take to get 11 people and one dog all looking in the same direction and appearing to be fairly normal and intelligent in the same picture. Since the Lapdogs are linguistically challenged, they just don't follow your direction of "OK, guys, all of you look here and smile! Say TREET!"

Happy barkday, Grammy!

My person has trouble getting a picture with all of me in it sometimes. I get really excited when she gets out her camera.

What great pics! I love the one of Zeus peeking through the fence! I always take hundreds of pictures and hope at least 2 come out good!
Happy Birthday to your Grammy!

Wow - impressive, getting cute pics with all 4!

Happy Monday Mischief day and Happy Bday to Grammy.

You did great getting those shots of all your dogs. I'm still trying to get a really good one of our 3 pets all together looking at the camera. It's tough.

Happy birthday to your grammy!

Hey Lapdogs, Jet here. Hi Miss Nichole.

So lovely to make your acquaintance. Mom likes to knit, too...although she has not had much time in the last year. She went scarf crazy last fall! (and let's not discuss stash!)

We think your photos turned out beautifully, Mom cannot imagine getting 4 K9s in one shot, she has trouble with 2!
