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!



The Experience

Happy Clients

Photographers Dogs | Glendale Az Dog Photography

Separately they are Bixby and Sox but together they are the gruesome twosome, devilish duo, and beasts of burdens. At any given moment they are barking, snarling, jumping, destroying, playing, rough-housing and up to basic mischievousness. But that all changes the moment I bring out my camera because when I’m holding that thing I become […]

My backyard is surrounded by dogs and Sox feels like it’s moral responsibility to visit with all of them every day. He goes to fence to fence, running and barking. He usually has conversations with two pitt bulls on the right side, if they aren’t home to talk he will scratch and snarl at the […]

Signature Look

Photo on the left was taken for last years Christmas card. Photo on the right was taken last month for my bio. Notice a theme in these photos? No, I am not talking about my hat – although the hat is really cool and distracts from my ridiculously long hair – the similarity I’m talking […]

Say it, Don’t Spray it {details}

I love details shots. Okay, so maybe detail shots of spit bubbles may seem a little weird to some people but to me they tell me a story about my dog’s very being. Sox is very food motivated so when I’m holding something particularly tempting in my hand that he wants (something like string cheese […]

Out with the Old and In with the New

You may have heard that I’ve gotten a new dog door (probably because I just blogged about it). The new doors are wonderful. The old set of doors were put in incorrectly and grazed the carpet when you opened it and I really don’t want to mention the faux door that was just there for […]

Night Terrors

It was 4 a.m when I awoke to a sharp bark. I laid in bed, quietly not moving. Tim was besides me doing the same. I closed my eyes, maybe it was just a fluke and she will go back to sleep, sometimes that happens. Another five minutes pass by and I’m falling back into […]
