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!

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. […]

Bixby’s Greatest Hits

Living with Miss Bix for the last year has been quite an adventure. Sweet, sensitive and a tad rowdy (emphasis on that last part), it turns out Bixby was the missing puzzle piece to complete our pack. Today completes Bix’s adopt-a-versary week, so without much further ado, Bixby’s greatest hits. Take a Leap Sprinkles I […]

I Won’t Miss Much | Dog Days of Summer

After the sprinklers turn off, Tim will hold out a towel to Bixby and she will perk up her ears and run into his arms. Summer is finally coming to an end. I won’t miss it much but I will miss this.

Sprinklers | Dog Days of Summer

I don’t either of us expected Bixby to be such a wild child when we first met her. For our first met and greet, Bix hide under one of the shelves at Petsmart and for the first 24 hours of having her home she had her tail tucked behind her like would could strike her […]

Waterplay | Dog Days of Summer

I had lost sight of Tim somewhere between the pet aisle and the gardening center. I was just about to call him when he rounded the corner holding a small blue plastic pool in his arms. Tim had been talking about getting the pups (Bixby specifically) a small pool for weeks now. We didn’t even […]
