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!

What I Didn’t Blog About | July 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 sometimes Facebook just f’ups, so here is a chance to get caught up on what you may have missed during July.

Added another seamless to my collection, yellow! In case you couldn’t tell, I love me some color. (Seriously, my closet looks like it belongs to Rainbow Brite.)

Sox and Big Blue. A match made in heaven.
A tongue tied Waffles.

Monsoon season officially begins in Arizona around the second week of July. That means dust storms, rain, thunder and wind. But despite it all, my boy Waffles is calm in the storm.

…and this is why you won’t find Bixby in my studio.


Sox’s motto: Just run with it.

It’s never a good idea to pull on Bixby’s tail. Just trust me on that.

Bixby’s version of multitasking: Running while barking.

Little dogs play big.

One of many photos of Wiley!

Here is Bixby shaking her thang (aka Kong Squiggle)!

Adoramerle. It’s totally a word now…or at least it is at my house.

    I love all of your photos Kira….that yellow seamless is pretty awesome, but I think my favorite of them all is Waffles on the purple seamless (tongue tied) that one is just so cute!
