McGraw Photography Blog » Charlotte, NC | Pet & Dog Photography


I have to admit that it has been WAY too long since I volunteered last – like around 2 years. At the time, I was just starting out my pet photography business and I had plenty of extra time on my hands. Well, as things grew, that spare time became smaller and smaller and, as my schedule tightened, I had to unfortunately let the volunteering go. Fast forward to now, I’m busier than ever but I knew I needed to get some of my priorities in line.

Photographing adoptable dogs has always been something extremely important to me. A good picture goes such a long way in the chances that these pups will get adopted. Hopefully a nice image will catch someone’s eye while browsing Facebook or the internet. For example, take a look at the picture from my Sadie’s Petfinder listing HERE. If I didn’t see her at an adoption event first, I could have easily overlooked her dark and scary picture and I wouldn’t have my heart dog.

Anyway, I am so glad to now be volunteering with the Humane Society of Charlotte. They are an awesome group of individuals and I can’t wait to help more and more of their dogs get adopted. I hope to make it over there 3 or 4 times a month. Until then, here are some of their wonderful pups that have been there the longest…

Shakira had such an adorable head tilt that I had to include 2 pics…

If any of these pups catch your eye, please contact the Humane Society of Charlotte for more information!

Charlotte Reeves - Good on you for getting back into volunteering Sarah – I know first hand how hard it can be to find the time to do this! There are some really gorgeous dogs waiting for homes here and you’ve brought out the look and personality of each of them. I am sure your images will help them find new loving owners. :)
