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!

Berkley & Bailey | Love Session

Out of the blue, Berkley and Bailey’s parents contacted me. Their 9 year old ridgeback Berkley had osteosarcoma and they didn’t know how much time they would have with him. On the 3rd anniversary of Peetie’s passing, we had Berkley’s Love session.

You love them. Embrace it. Life is so much sweeter when you get to share it with the ones you love.

Because there will be a day when you won’t be woken by their slobbery wet kisses and excited paws. Your house will be quiet and you won’t be greeted by their barks. You’ll have more money in your back account but fewer dirty paw prints on the floor. Our lives pass so quickly and moments like this make up the most of it. I want you to remember these things with photos so you can have evidence of the gorgeous happy messy love that it is.

    How bittersweet these photos are! I can’t help but think that Peetie would be happy that you used your gift to help another family always remember their beautiful dog.
