Preparing your home for a photo shoot

Before the photographer is due to arrive…

  • Turn ceiling fans off.

  • Turn ON overhead lights.

  • Toilet lids need to be closed, and toiletry items put away.

  • Make the beds, clothes in the hamper, toys and clutter in closets.

  • Move trash cans to the garage or closets.

  • Small kitchen appliances need to be removed, if possible.

  • The counters need to be clear to emphasize spaciousness.

  • Clear off the front and top of the refrigerator.

  • Remove pet food bowls and toys, and please contain pets.

  • Please make sure the driveway is clear of vehicles, outdoor toys, trash can, etc.

  • If you are not home for the appointment, I will turn on lights as needed, and turn them back off before I leave.

  • Your listing agent or staging professional is the best person to ask about decor and furniture placement for the photo shoot (and future showings).

  • Please remember that the property is photographed in as-is condition and therefore should be staged and photo-ready prior to my arrival. Thank you!!
