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 | November 2012

Welcome to another addition of What I Didn’t Blog About. Not only is November one of the busiest months of the holiday season for KDP – it is also a month of joys and sadness for me. In the midst of this busy month, both my husband and I celebrate our birthdays and the loss of my first ever dog, Peetie – a loss that I still feel to this day.

Baby Ian (who I should note, is no longer a baby) helps start this post with his puppy cuteness.

Baby Ian and the rest of the PCPR puppies celebrated their 1st birthday!

Bixby, my wild child, taking a rest for running around and tormenting her siblings. Proof that looks can be deceiving.

Had an early morning session with the fabulous Bella. Can you believe that this girl is 11-years-old? She had the energy of a puppy as you can see below…

Everyone knows that you fly better when you have your ears up!

Love in an 8 Pound body “We always said that Peetie was pure love in an 8 pound furry body. When we first met her, she was bald and neglected. Used for breeding for the first 6 years of her life, she had never seen the outside world or felt the grass beneath her feet. Despite her past, she was joy, forgiveness and love. I adopted her in a bad place in a life, right after a period of great loss but she found a way into my heart – a place she will always have. One year ago Peetie passed away. I miss her, everyday.”

Spent a week up north in Show Low. I forgot what real cold feels like!

Don’t worry, you’ll be seeing more of my trio’s adventures from the mountains soon.

 A Before and After of beautiful Bella. You can see how I did it on the blog, HERE.

Beautiful Bella. The rest of her session will be on the blog very soon.
