Photo Shoot Preparation Guide


For the best photographic results, and to attract a wider pool of potential home buyers, homes should be photo ready (cleaned, decluttered, depersonalized, and prepped) prior to 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 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 shower. 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.

Our photography packages outlined on our Pricing page are specially structured for REALTORS® and homeowners and are priced for homes/properties that are photo ready upon our arrival. We will be happy to advise and assist with minor staging and quick decluttering of spaces upon request for an additional fee in order to achieve the best visual impact and to help your listing stand out on the MLS and online.
