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 | September 2013

The dog days of summer are finally over! I have to say, I think September might be the worst month…after August…and June and July. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I hate summer. A lot. Since I can’t shoot during the summer, and once again, I wasn’t able to finish and open my studio for clients (I’m really great a procrastinating, y’all), I spent a good chunk of the summer catching up on the not so glamourous side of my job with things like: archiving, TPT taxes, accounting, re-doing copy and so on.

Where was I going with all this? I honestly have no idea but here is what you may have missed during the month of September (aka Dappertember).

Blue Merle Pomeranian Fetch I will never not love this photo. I especially love the photo on the right, it just screams “JAZZ HANDS” to me.

Also, could this dog being any more handsome? (The correct answer is “no, and it hurts to look at him, his good looks are burning my eyes but I can’t look away.”)

Blue Merle Pomeranian Smile FlowersHis hobbies include:
Stomping and jumping on my organs.
Farting on strangers on the sly (if he randoms jumps on you, beware)
Barking at the UPS truck…and that one dog that walks across the street every morning (his nemesis)
Playing fetch for a minimum of two hours everyday with his toy Hippy.
Being super adorbs.
