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!

An Ode to Hippy (the Best Toy in the World)

Right after adopting Sox, we took him to the petstore to pick up a tag, collar and few toys. While strolling the aisles, I picked up a few toys made for smallish dogs. Balls, stuffed toys and a double sided squeaker monkey from Petstages. For the next few weeks, the balls and stuffed toys were […]

I thought I’d share some shots with you to get your 4th of July started! This entry will be more photos than text because…well what is there to say about Sox’s obsession with fetch that I just can’t show you. Enjoy!

Scenes from Show Low Arizona

Fall in hard month for me, especially November when I’m reminded of the loss of my girl Peetie. Tim took two weeks off that month and since I haven’t taken a single vacation since our honeymoon, my husband spirited me and the dogs up to his parent’s cabin up in the wood of Show Low. […]

In Honor of Peetie: Love Sessions

Today marks a day that forever changed me and my life: Peetie’s adopt-a-versay. Peetie was love, pure and simple. The first 6 years of her life were spent in misery. She was balding from the constant breeding with no dental care and to add insult to injury, she was never allowed to see or experience […]

The Little Things

For the first few months after Peetie’s passing, I had to avoid any and all photos of her, it was just too much and I would end up sobbing. Now seeing photos of her makes my heart feel both heavy and full. While sifting through my 2010 archives, I came across a series of images […]
