Preparing Your Home

We will ask for a simple walk-through before setting up photography equipment. This will give you the opportunity to point out details and features of your home that you want included in your marketing photos. Once shooting begins, please either vacate the premises or try to stay out of the way, as wide-angle photos can include adjacent rooms where you may inadvertently walk into the frame, which will be unable to be re-shot.  We plan for 25 high res photos but often shoot many more before settling on our top 25.
