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!

Radar Two Ways

This is a shot of Radar, a 16+ old rat terrier mix from Phoenix. Radar totally kicked my butt during that shoot. I walked in thinking I was going to have a laid paid easy session but he showed me that he still had plenty of energy to give. I will never underestimate an “old” […]
