“We love the photos you took for Modern Dog Magazine!! We think the article looks amazing with the pictures. You are an amazing photographer and I will definitely be letting people know about your work :)” Heather B, Jesse in Modern Dog Magazine

"Kira is obviously a natural with dogs! One of my concerns when searching for the right pet photographer was, would he or she be ok with all the kisses and wet slobbery boxers jowls that would inevitably come his or her way! She really dove right in and not only was ok with the kisses but I think she enjoyed them! Kira captured so many unique behaviors of my two boxers that I can't help but smile everytime I browse the photos. She wasn't afraid to get down on the ground to get those awesome angles and shots which create the artistic, fun shots that she captures. My girl is 9 years and these are photos that I will treasure forever and will continue to make me smile for years to come." - Stephanie L, Rocky & Diva

“LOVE LOVE LOVE the pictures Kira took of my dog Cooper. Truly incredible photographer with incredible eye for composition and lighting and her ability to capture pet's personality in a photo is amazing. I love how she tailors each session and you aren't stuck in a studio with a fake backdrop and a bunch of photos that look exactly the same. If you want some great photos of your beloved 4 leg friend, I highly recommend Kira!” - Cooper Michelle L., Cooper the Old English Sheep Dog

“...The photos exceeded our expectations!” - Ron + Carol, Barron

“We just want to let you know that we LOVE the pictures. We are very pleased with the quality of the canvas - they turned out amazing! And the prints are exceptional as well! Thank you again for all of your help and assistance, especially while we were trying to make our choices. You are very talented and we will recommend you without hesitation!”  Jeanne + Tia, Cooper & Liliah

“Thanks, Kira! These are beautiful!” - Marie W (Two Penny Blue), Winston the Wonder Pup

“One of my most favourite photographers, Kira DeDecker...” - Pretty Fluffy (Happy Messy Love)

“Before we met Kira, I knew that she took some amazing pictures, but I wasn't sure if she would be able to capture my dogs in the same way. After all, we had never been able to get truly great pictures of our boys in the 12 years we have had them! However, the moment Kira got down on dog-level and started snapping away, all my fears went away. Kira has a natural way with dogs; she knows how to bring out their personalities and she has the artistic talent to capture it on film. I am so thankful to Kira for capturing the true essence of my boys. We will cherish these images forever!” -Matt + Heather R., Gizmo and Harrison

“During Kitsune's session, Kira was patient to allow Kitsune time to adjust to a new environment and getting used to the idea of sitting and waiting while pictures were being taken. The session was a relaxed and enjoyable experience and I love showing off the beautiful photos. Thank you Kira!” - Susan W, Kitsune the Shiba Inu 

“Thank You. You were great!!!” -Dori G, Fallon the Fantastic Great Dane

I look forward to getting the disk of images :) If I ever hear of someone who needs some doggy photos I will definitely refer them to you! " - Deidra + Jake, Kira the Aussie
