When it gets just too hot out there I like to shoot in the studio. It's nice and cool, I can shoot anytime of the day, and it is right in my house....what's not to like ;-) My latest studio shoot was with sisters, Carly and Olivia. Check out these beautiful ladies!
One of my recent personal branding photoshoots was at Haggard Home Kitchen & Bath Design Studio. April, the owner, wanted location head shots, a team photo, some candid shots, and a few photos of her showroom. I spent about an hour and a half on location and I immediately noticed the passion this team of designers have for their work. With over 50 years of experience they have quite a diverse background in interior design and construction.
Meet this awesome team
A few weeks ago I photographed Genevieve Dumas for her Senior photos. Genevieve wanted a few studio shots as well as location shots. So we spent some time inside the studio where she felt right at home! Lots of wardrobe changes made for a fun hour in the studio, and posing seemed to come easy for this lovely and smart senior.
After the studio session we headed to Garrard Landing park for her location shoot. We walked around the park's beautiful locations and I was able to capture Genevieve's playful spirit.
One of my favorite shoots this year was the engagement session with Sarah and Josh. I have known Josh since he was just three years old. His mom and I served in the military together many moons ago.
I felt honored when they asked me to take their engagement portraits. These two were a true joy to photograph! They giggled, laughed, had a great time and were sooooo in love....a photographer's dream!!!
I loved seeing their love and devotion to each other. All the best to Josh and Sarah and I look forward to photographing their wedding :-)
Sometimes you get that listing where you just have to pull out all the bells and whistles. A luxury property deserves the marketing that shows the property in the best light and from the most attractive angles.
Here are just a few examples from some of my past shoots that showcase how aerial photography, video, and twilight can take your real estate marketing to the next level.
Video is a great way to showcase the entire property. Video grabs the viewers attention and can really tell a story about the property. With a drone we can capture every angle of the home from the sky. It is a great marketing tool to showcase large properties. In the below example video I edited the drone video footage to highlight the exterior of the property and used a few interior still images to give the viewer an idea of what the interior looks like. Incorporating interior still images is an option if the the lighting in the interior is not optimal for video, or if interior video is not in the budget.
Aerial photography will give a unique perspective of the property and is sure to grab the viewers attention. It can showcase the entire property including the pool, landscaping, or ancillary structures such as barns or detached garages that aren't close to the main house. It's particularly valuable if the property is near a park, lake, recreation area, or within walking distance to community centers or shopping areas.
Aerial photography, like aerial video, captures attention more readily and stands out more on social media. Millennials will likely be your next main clients and they are more in tune to unique perspectives and quality photography.
With aerial photography you will make a great impression to other prospective sellers. Your listing will likely stand out from the rest of the competition. Remember that neighbors of the seller will likely see the listing and be impressed on how much effort you put into the marketing, and will choose you as their real estate agent when the time comes. In fact, the most successful real estate agents I shoot for use aerial photography frequently, and they garner multiple listings in the same neighborhood.
A twilight photo is usually taken of the exterior of the property at dusk. They are more likely to grab the attention of potential buyers when they are searching for properties.
Twilight photography is great to highlight a beautiful pool or backyard. You can really showcase the lighting or outdoor fireplace. Give the potential buyer a feel for what it would be like to enjoy the pool or outdoor living space in the early evening.
