Should these foundation shrubs be pruned or shaped?

My husband says no and to let them grow, but I don’t like how they look and they’re growing at a snail’s pace. I don’t think they’ll ever grow to their full size. I believe they’re dwarf yaupons, and they get thrown into deep shade in spring. I’ve had dwarf yaupons in deep shade before and they never get full. We’ve been in this house a couple years, and they weren’t shaped when we bought it and we haven’t touched them. Can I just prune them and make them look a little neater? Should I attempt to give them a shape?
