The home must be photo-ready. I will not touch or move any furnishings or personal items. I will wear a mask and gloves while photographing the home.

Sellers MUST be completely out of the house at 1 hour prior to shoot appointment time. All pets must be either removed from the premises or secured in a garage or room that will not be photographed.

Depending on the size of the home, a shoot can take up to 2 hours.


The expectation is that a home will be photo-ready for the scheduled shoot.  Creating high-quality imagery is a team effort. The listing agent and the homeowners must be involved in the process. The home needs to be clean and de-cluttered though not necessarily ‘sterile.’   

Please contain pets in the garage or out of sight as I normally do not photograph the garage.  It is a good idea to hide anything animal-related – litter boxes, dog beds, toys, food bowls, etc

Depending on the size and complexity of the home and property, the shooting phase can take one to three hours.  

For scheduling and liability purposes, I will only do very minimal staging to help the composition of a shot.  This may include the moving of pillows, adjustment of chairs, lights  or centerpieces. Cleaning and/or rearranging furniture or personal items are not within the Photographer’s scope.  

Vehicles - Remove all vehicles from the driveway/property.  

Trash cans and debris in front of the home will not make it attractive in photographs. Please confirm that all contracted work is completed prior to shooting schedule - contractors, gardeners, cleaning services, staging, etc.  

I love my dogs but from experience I have found that pets roaming around can complicate a shoot.
