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!

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 […]

Being married is awesome…unless of course, you are married to me. I like to listen to the same songs over and over again. I like to eat the red gummies and leave the rest of the icky flavors and stuff them back in the pouch and into the box. I once got my in-laws so […]

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 […]

My Baby Girl

Peetie you are missed by many…but most of all by me and Tim. I would give ANYTHING to have you by side, just so I could bury my face in your fur one more time. You will never know how much you meant to me because you gave me more than I could ever give […]

A Thank You

If you follow me on Facebook (if you aren’t start, I make a fool of myself on there almost daily) you probably heard about Miss Peet’s medical drama. To get you caught up here is 411: Took her to the vet for what we thought was constipation, but after they x-rayed her that discovered that […]
