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!

Love in an 8 Pound Body

It’s been one year since Peetie passed away from complications from gallstones. I first met Miss Peet three years ago. I was suffering two major losses in my life, needless to say I wasn’t even thinking about adopting a dog. But when my husband, Tim, ran into a local rescue group that had a bunch […]

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 […]

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

Three Amigos

My trio of fluff muffins. It’s hard not to love them. It’s also hard to get them to pose together for photos. Happy Friday!

Peetie’s Payment

Typically I pay my models in treats or toys, Peetie on the other hand wants a whole different payment. After she lost most of her teeth (her past owner breed her instead of taking care of her) she started doing something new whenever she got really excited so if I wanted to work with Peetie […]

Easily Distracted

I have a natural light studio in my house and I use the term “studio” lightly, it’s just an extra bedroom that has a huge window in it. It’s just for personal use only, it’s where I put my equipment and do my family photos and other personal projects. I’ve been wanting to organize it […]
