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 | January 2013

For this blog entry I bring you a little taste of things behind the scenes here at Kira DeDecker Photography. If you want to see these images and here news and announcements as they happen around here at KDP, consider following the Kira DeDecker Photography Facebook page. There’s always a lot going on!

Sox the Pomeranian Arizona Pet Photography Session 01Started the new year with a bang. I celebrated the two year anniversary of KDP, which has been amazing, thanks to my amazing fans and clients but it is also special for another reason. My little heartbeat with feet, Waffles, celebrated his first ever adopt-a-versary! To celebrate, he was January’s pin-up dog!

Wall Display Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 02It’s true – bigger is better…well at least when it comes to decorating your walls! When it comes to your custom made works of art, you shouldn’t be afraid to go big. Think about grouping multiple photos together to fill spaces or long lengths of hallways. For extra drama, think about doing a large print or canvas, they look great above the couch or bed as a statement piece! Feel free to mix it up with canvas with framed prints! There are many options and things to think about so if you need help decorating your walls, I’m here to help. Schedule a complimentary in-home ordering session and we can go over your options!

Photos are meant to be seen and enjoyed and not stuffed around on a USB drive.

Sox Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 03Had a terrifying moment when my neighbor’s dog jumped the fence and attacked Sox. Thankfully my husband was home and was able to fend the dog off (it took him a lot of effort to get him to drop her from his mouth – something little me wouldn’t have been able to do). Sox is alright, he is bruised and has small wound around his neck.

Bella Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 04Bouncy Bella! You can check out the rest of here images here on the blog.

Waffles Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 05WAFFLE CONE! I am sooo adding these photos to my website. I’m pretty much the equivalent of the mom that shows off embarrassing photos of their kid in the bathtub. (Don’t worry, Waffles is fine, these images are from when he was neutered last year.)

Bixby and Waffles Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 06Shake it out! You can see bigger images here.

Waffles Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 10We get it, Waffles, you’re adorable.

Sox Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 11Sox Phoenix Arizona Pet Photography 12The not-so-magical side behind getting the shot. Sox had to be on a lead since we were in the woods and homeslice’s recall is terrible but I wanted to get a shot of him. What do I do? Take a reference photo for later.
