How to Prepare YOUR property - to get the most from your shoot: ... 
When in doubt - throw it out - and .... always go neutral. 


  • Turn on all interior and exterior lights.  Replace all burned-out light bulbs.  All bulbs should be the same color. White is best.
  • Clean windows, mirrors and pictures under glass. Open, even out all blinds and window treatments. 
  • Remove personal photographs, certificates, degrees, magnets and mementoes.
  • Conceal garbage and recycle containers.
  • Remove table coverings.
  • Remove all signs of pets: food/water bowls, pet beds, chew toys, crates, kitty boxes, etc.
  • During the shoot - remove the pet(s). **Additional fees may apply otherwise. 
  • Turn off TVs and computer screens, put remotes away.  Conceal electric chords and wires as best as possible.
  • De-clutter, clear and clean all (including fireplace mantel/hearth, front door, foyer).  Put away toys, clothing, dishes, towels, shoes etc. It’s a lot cheaper to put these things away before the photo shoot than to pay to have the photos “photoshopped”.
  • Depersonalize: remove personal photos and any potentially offensive art (believe me, I’ve seen it all!).  Remove guns. 
  • Remove any seasonal/holiday decorations that can quickly outdate your decor.
  • Hide all trash cans.

Kitchen and Dining Areas

  • Make sure all chairs are evenly placed, symmetrical and matching or remove.
  • Store alcohol, wine and glassware away.
  • Reduce clutter: tuck appliance wires out of sight, remove all cleaning supplies and hanging towels.
  • Vases with flowers or fruit bowls can also add a nice touch to the scene.
  • All lights should be on including under cabinet lighting and over stove lighting.
  • Refrigerators should be cleared of magnets, pictures and flyers. Wipes and finger prints removed.
  • Clean and polish off sink, faucet and all fixtures so they shine.
  • Remove all shampoos, conditioners, body-washes, etc. from the shower.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms

  • Make bed and pull bedding tightly and evenly.
  • Remove all clutter from the top of the dressers and the night stands.
  • Make sure bedside lamps are working and with same color bulbs.
  • Store away phone/tablet charging cables, personal items, etc.
  • If you have a desk in the room, clear it off.
  • Check under beds - the camera sees all!
  • Clean the mirrors and shine faucets!
  • Clear counter-tops completely. No plastic soap dispensers, toothbrushes, medications, deodorant, etc.
  • If you have glass shower doors, remove all shampoos, soaps, and brushes from the shower. **Clean the glass shower doors!
  • Remove dirty towels – leave out only matching, clean towels.
  • Remove floor mats.
  • Put the toilet seats down.
  • Remove all lime or soap film from tiles - it reflects light and will show as white blotches in the photo!


  • Remove cars, bikes, toys from the driveway and store away. 
  • Store hoses, sprinklers and all yard equipment . Sprinklers off prior to shoot and during the time of the shoot.
  • Lawns should be well-manicured. Remove dead plantings, foliage, stick piles and pinecones.  Rake leaves, pine-straw, and cover bare patches of dirt with sod, etc.
  • Remove pool covers, BBQ covers, fire pit covers, chair covers, etc. Put nice cushions out. 
  • Blow or sweep your walkways, patio, decks, porches and driveways. Remove stains on concrete at entrance and walkways.
  • Store trash containers in garage and put garage  door down.
  • Have exterior lights on for shoot with matching bulbs.
