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 | August 2013

If you don’t follow the Kira DeDecker Photography Facebook page (and shame on you if you don’t, it hurts my dogs’ feelings), or you missed you out on a few photos (because FB is dumb sometimes) you may have missed photos of dogs in bowties and gorgeous sunset photos!

Pomeranians Playing Arizona Pet Photography 01Sometimes when I look at them, I feel like my heart could burst.

Actually, I don’t feel like bursting “sometimes”, it’s all the time.

Blue Merle Pet Photography Studio 02A bonded Beast. I get this look a lot. He is a complete and utter mama’s boy (whatever, I love it). He gets a lot attention when are out and and about but he doesn’t care for anyone but me…not even my husband can steal him from me. After I lost Peetie, I didn’t think I could let another dog into my life, but from the moment he reached out from his kennel and pawed me in the car while I was bringing him home, I was smitten.

Blue Merle Pomeranian Studio Pet Photography 03The beasts were waaay over due for the grooming (like months) so excuse his ragamuffin appearance. Tim (that’s that dude that I’m married to) is creating a grooming station in the garage so in the meantime they look like this…(which albeit is still totes adorable!)

First shot out of my camera to test my flash and camera settings, tad overexposed but totally fixable. Obviously for the final ‘After’ shot, I changed the orientation from portrait to landscape.
