Preparing Your Home For a Photoshoot

The photo shoot will take 2-3 hours. I will be photographing both the inside and outside of your home. I’ll be photographing all the major rooms. We normally do not photograph the garage unless it has special features.

  • If you have special features of your home that are not obvious please let me know about these so I can include them in the shoot.
  • Contain pets in the garage or out of sight.
  • Remove all vehicles from driveway and do not park directly in front of the house.
  • Move garbage cans and recycling bins out of sight.
  • Remove all garden tools including hoses and sprinklers.
  • Cut, edge and rake lawn. Trim bushes and trees and remove dead limbs and debris.
  • Sweep or wash driveways, sidewalks and patios.
  • Clear off counter tops in kitchen and bathrooms.
  • Remove photos, notes and papers from the refrigerator.
  • Turn on all interior lights.
  • Contact-buttonTurn ceiling fans and televisions off.
  • De-clutter rooms which may be excessively furnished. They do not photograph well.
  • Make all beds and tidy bedrooms. Clothes hung or folded and put away.
  • Remove piles of newspapers and magazines.
  • Tuck trash cans out of view in a closet or cupboard.
  • Let me know if your home contains valuable works of art. I can edit photos to make these items unrecognizable.
