Hi, I’m Kira DeDecker (“key-ra dee-decker”) and I’m a pet photographer serving Arizona’s greater Phoenix Metro area. Welcome to my blog! This is where I share not only my most recent work but also my life with you. Client sneak peeks, Facebook recaps, announcements, updates, awesome new offerings and the occasional (okay, frequent) story about my crazy but amazing life with my three dogs – Sox, Bixby and Waffles.

Pull up a chair and make sure it’s nice and comfy because you will want to stay awhile. It’s great to have you here!

Love at First BLLAAHHH

It was love at first sight.

I forwarded Tim a Petfinder listing I found for a blue merle Pomeranian from AZ Paws and Claws named Sox. I just forwarded it to him because I thought the dog was interesting and to show him what a blue merle Pomeranian looked like. Next thing I know Tim has to have that dog. Talked endless about Sox to everyone he knew. Finally Tim convinces the rescue to let us have a meet and greet with Sox at the next their next adoption event.

Sox was excited and happy when we met. We made small talk with the dog’s foster parent until she had to leave for a couple of minutes to pick up something from her house. She leaves and we are left alone with the dog. The dog wants nothing to do with me but instead lavishes his attention on Tim. Anytime anything scared him he would sit by his legs and look for protection. They were in love with each other.

Last night I gave Tim a haircut. Sox watched while I ran the razor through his hair and when the first piece fell to the ground he went over and ATE IT.

I can honestly say that absolutely love and devotion they had for one another when they first met is still just as strong…maybe a little too strong.
