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!

Happy Clients

What I Didn’t Blog About | May 2012

I often post outtakes, sneak peeks and personal photos over on my Facebook page, but often times things get lost in the hustle and bustle – or Facebook releases a new controversial promoted system –  so here is a chance to get caught up on what you may have missed during May.

RIP Bongo. You are missed.


Summer around the DeDecker house includes sprinkles and wet dogs. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Bixby’s all star move: The Pom Whomp.


Bite the ones you love.

Anatomy of a lick. Sox style.

My girl Bixby is a tour de force.

My fancy chain mount system to hold my backdrops up was installed.

Now, I just need to break it to Waffles that my seamless paper is not a gigantic dog bed…

I posted a B&A of this photo way back in early March but totally spazzed and forgot to show the After in all it’s glory.

Summer in the valley of the sun (That’s what they call Phoenix metropolitan area, for those you don’t live in state), not my favorite time of the year. The grass is dead and sun burnt and temps are in the 100s. Whew. So that is why summer = studio work.

I couldn’t resist sharing Puggly again.

    Love love love your studio stuff (well all your stuff, duh, but the new studio backdrops are awesome)! The colors are so bright and beautiful!

    Thanks, that means coming from a talented photog like yourself! I’m surprised how much I love working in the studio, but once I got started I sorta got addicted (especially when it’s 110+ out).
