Photo Shoot Preparation Guide


For the best photographic results and to keep the cost of the photo shoot to the minimum, homes/properties should be photo-ready (cleaned, decluttered, depersonalized, and prepped) upon our arrival. It's a fact that your first showing with prospective home buyers occurs online, and if the photographs portray a cluttered home, you'll lose these buyers before they even physically stepped foot inside your home. Here is a checklist that may be helpful to you in preparing your home/property prior to our arrival:


  • Clean and declutter kitchen counters and appliances.
  • Remove magnets, family photos, etc... from refrigerator.
  • Remove / hide kitchen trash cans and outdoor garbage containers.
  • Remove pet bowls and pet toys from floors and outside yard.
  • Make arrangements for pets so they don't disrupt the photo shoot.
  • Make all beds.
  • Clean bathrooms and remove clutter from sinks and showers. Make sure all toilet seats are down.
  • Pick up clothes, towels, and linens from bedroom and bathroom floors.
  • Sweep floors and vacuum carpets.
  • Turn on all lights and replace blown out light bulbs.

Important Note

Our photography packages outlined on our Pricing page are specially structured for REALTORS® and homeowners and are thoughtfully priced for homes/properties that are photo-ready upon our arrival. Waiting for spaces to be ready to photograph during the photo shoot or moving clutter/furniture in and out of spaces during the photo shoot will increase our time and effort, thereby increasing the total cost of the photo shoot. Two minutes here and five minutes there do add up and affects the integrity of the photo shoot, as well as impacts our work with other clients.
