Here are some top tips for preparing your home for a professional photo shoot:

  • Remove any seasonal decorations, as this can date your home
  • Remove everything from the exterior of your refrigerator
  • Remove all signs of pet bowls & bedding, and conceal litter boxes
  • Put toilet lids down, and clean bathroom mirrors
  • Store toys neatly
  • Remove excess kitchen & bathroom items
  • Mow your lawn and pick up any debris from your yard
  • Sweep your driveway and sidewalks; remove extra cars from your driveway
