Preparing your Home for Photo shoot


  • The photo-shoot will take no more than 30 minutes to an hour, depending on size and readiness. I will be photographing both the inside and outside of your home. I’ll be photographing all of 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 include them in the shoot.

  • Remove all vehicles from driveways and do not park directly in front of the house.

  • Move garbage cans out of sight.

  • Remove all garden tools including hoses and sprinklers.

  • Mow and rake yard, set up exterior furniture, raise umbrellas.

  • Sweep driveways, sidewalks and patios.

  • Turn on all interior lights, including lamps and overheads.

  • Clear off counter tops in kitchen and bathroom areas.

  • Remove photos, notes and papers from the refrigerator.                                                               

  •  Turn on all interior lights, including lamps and overheads.

  • Turn 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 newspaper 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.
