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

Auld Lang Syne 2012

A Happy Messy Kind of Love

Greif comes in waves. I know that fact all too well. I was my grandfathers primary caregiver when he was in hospice and shortly after I got engaged he passed away. I spend my first few months as a newly wed in a mix of pure joy and grief. In fact, one of the most […]

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.

Just a tall cool drink of water to hold you off until next Monday where I will continue with the Dog Days of Summer! (Hint: it involves one of Bixby’s favorite past-times!) See you then!

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 […]
