A fresh pass with the vacuum and a dusting of hardwood floors will freshen things up.

Dust and turn off any fans for the duration of the shoot. If we are capturing video we will turn them on during the vide portion of our shoot.



Remove any vehicles from driveway, or RV parking, we also suggest parking away from the home in the event we are capturing aerial images.

Pool / Hot tub

Clean pool / hot tub and clear of any debris, remove automatic cleaning equipment if any.

Patio / Balcony

Arrange any furniture, remove grill covers, sweep or use a blower to remove any debris.

Nothing is more unsightly than the garbage cans, tuck them away or in an inconspicuous place for the duration of the shoot.

Lawn / Landscape

Mow lawns, trim scrubs/trees, weed if necessary. Clear flower bed of debris.

Tiddy up the dining table and chairs, remove any excess decor.


Clear away any clutter, arrange any decor and give it a fresh dusting.



Clear countertops. Remove lotion bottle, toothbrushes, medications, personal supplies, etc.

Toilet Seat

An oldie but a goodie, You've probably heard it before, "Put the toilet seat down"
Well, we want to continue that tradition!

Toilet Paper

Our focus is certainly not on the toilet paper. But, it's visible at times, we try not to show it, Try throwing on a a fresh roll.


Replace previously used towels with some fresh ones. Minimize how many towels are visible.

Rugs / Bath Mats

Sometimes it is good practice to remove the rugs for photos to help show more of the flooring.


It really helps to declutter smaller bathrooms to help keep the space feeling open and fresh.



Make all beds and straighten pillows, throw on a flat sheet or bedskirt to hide items under the bed.


Declutter or remove items from nightstands, check any bulbs on lamps.

Toys / Games

Chances are the kids may have a few more toys than we remember, the fewer visible the better.


Generally we do not shoot the closets in most room, however if they are clean and tidy they may make an appearance online.

Dirty Clothes

Remove or hide any dirty clothes or laundry baskets that may be visible.

Sleeping Zzz

We know it is tempting to call it quits and take a nap with all this cleaning going on, but hang in there, we are almost done.

Pets | Misc


We all love our pups, anything that can be hidden away that Fido may have left out will help us with the shoot. Dog beds, toys, etc.


Ok, we dont want to over do it MEOW, but moving any cat trees, condos or litter boxes, can mage a big difference.


We do not usually photograph the interior of garages, unless specifically requested, please make sure it's tidy and the doors are closed.


Add some touches of color, some throw pillows or maybe some plants in the space to dress it up a bit.


Please be sure to indicate to your Realtor® if you would like the amenities to be photographed and that we will have access to them.


All of our staff have a set time for each client as they may have multiple shoots in a day, please be respectful of the time allowed for your shoot.
