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

Since he was a puppy, he had been the one constant in his mom’s life. He had been by her side through relationships, moves and jobs. We spent Ringo’s last day talking about him and their life together. I learned that she calls the spot on his head “Angel Kissed” and when I admired his […]

Cassiopeia of the Northern Sky

“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.” ― Sarah Williams If there is one wish I had for all the dogs in the world. It would not only to have a home to call their own – but to be loved and cherished like Cassie was. Simply put, Cassie […]

Charlee the Cavalier | Love Session

Meeting Charlee, it was very obvious that she was very loved for all 11 years of her life. Recently diagnosed out of the blue with cancer of the mouth, they were told “she could pass at any moment”. Despite the summer heat, and the prognosis, Charlee ROCKED her special day and I was able to […]

Cassie, Rigel, Comet and Sora | Love Session

Love Sessions aren’t meant to be goodbyes, they to celebrate life. And that was exactly the kind of session we had that day! Cassie and her family were close-knit and obvious devoted to one another. After Cassie’s initial cancer, her mother’s took her to California and they started a bucket list for her. Our session […]

Job the Joyous Pomeranian| Love Session

Job was recently diagnosed with bladder cancer so his mom set up a Love session for him to document the wonderful bond these two have had for the last seven years.

Piccolo & Sophie

I’m starting to think that Pomeranians are natural models in front of the camera. I have yet to meet a fluff muffin that doesn’t like having their photo taken. Piccolo and Sophie were adorable, super fluffy (these sisters put my poms to shame in the undercoat game), well behaved Pomeranians on the day of our […]

Marvous Missy

I am absouletly in love with merles, so meeting Missy the mini Aussi was a dream come true. Our session took place in mid March before the summer heat (I could write a whole blog post about why I don’t do outdoor work in the summer but I can sum it down to two reasons: […]

Bear the Fuzz Monster

While I was trying to describe what Bear looked like to my husband/assistant the only thing I could think of was “big fuzz monster”. For those that are curious, I am told that Bear is a Lab/Poodle mix (although, his people think he has something else in the mix). I was completely SMITTEN by him. […]
