By now it should be no surprise that this Birmingham, Alabama photographer loves pups! Small fluffy pups to dogs of great size. It does not matter, I love them all. So an idea was born, I should host a day of mini sessions in my new city because there must be others that love their pups as much as I love mine.
One Saturday in February, I met 9 of the most adorable Birmingham pups along with their humans too. It was woof-tastic! So without further ado, enjoy a few of my favorite portraits from the first of many Deborah Michelle Photography pup mini sessions.
First up is Bentley. He is a 4 year old Cavalier King Charles Cocker Spaniel who adores his humans, Brittney & Trey. I may or may not be biased because my Elliot is a Cavalier too!
I had to steal them away for a few portraits just because they were the sweetest!
Theo’s parents might look familiar if you’re a follower of DMP. Sydni & Colton got married nearly 3 years ago & since then have adopted the most precious pup. I mean just check out that bow tie!
Brace yourself this next pup will make you surrender all of your treats.
Meet Sosa. The tiniest pup of the day! He helped his mommy, Haley, through nursing school & is the fiercest protector.
Mac & Maisy introduced me to their parents, Micah & Bailey. And boy were they a bundle of energy! Maybe one day I will share the progress of the photo above because it literally had me laughing out loud while editing. I loved catching up with a past DMP bridesmaid & receiving suggestions on her favorite Birmingham spots.
P. S. Micah wore socks with labs on them! How stinking adorable?!
P. S. S. One of my favorite couple pics is this next one.
Everyone meet Cosmo whose namesake comes from Seinfield (Cosmo Kramer). Samantha loves the show & knew it’d be the perfect name for her furry companion. He may me small but he is precious.
Samantha introduced to her beau, Peyton, who is also a great dog dad too!
His name might be Diesel but I shall call him the Gentle Giant. Diesel is a 5 year old Great Dane. His proud parents are Lea & Barry. Luckily his parents have several acres of land for this pup to roam, although I am certain he enjoys the comfort of the couch too.
Yall, it just keeps getting better!
Next up is Miss Lanie & her rather new best friend, Gunner. He is a 3 month old Goldendoodle & oh so fluffy! He was so small that I could’ve easily carried him away in my camera bag but I don’t think Lanie would’ve approved. One of Gunner’s goals is to be a service pup for his owner which will be so awesome. I am eager to watch these two grow up together.
And last but certainly not least is Zoey. She is a 6 weeks old German Short-hair Pointer. This sweet girl belongs to Matt, Ashley & Zane. Sidenote: Zane is so great in front of the camera because his aunt is also a photographer (oh hey, Ashley Brooke Photography). I enjoyed meeting this family & their newest furry member.
Many thanks to FETCH - A Treat Truck for Dogs for making custom treats for all of the pups photographed during Deborah Michelle Photography’s first pup mini sessions.
I just had to sneak in one for my sweet pup too!
Spoiler alert: Pup Mini sessions coming to Mobile, Alabama & Tuscaloosa, Alabama very soon!
Email me now to get on the list. I cannot wait for another afternoon of tail-waggin' & sweet puppy kisses.
