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!

Waterplay | Dog Days of Summer

I had lost sight of Tim somewhere between the pet aisle and the gardening center. I was just about to call him when he rounded the corner holding a small blue plastic pool in his arms. Tim had been talking about getting the pups (Bixby specifically) a small pool for weeks now. We didn’t even finish shopping, we bought it and stuffed it into our car. Once home Tim immediately went out back and filled it with water from the hose. We dipped our feet into it and called the dogs over to join us. Sox and Peetie were only willing to drink out of it. Bixby on the other hand was a little more adventurous and stuck her little paws in.

It was such an oddly proud moment for us that I ran with feet still wet into the house and grabbed my camera before the moment ended.
