Laundry Room Special

 

Here in Southern Utah I shoot homes on a weekly basis in Hurricane. This particular fine home  had been very well taking care of. Making this an easy shoot for me. Walking through the home I noticed the homeowner had staged the  home very well. It was done in a way that you knew some one lived in the home, but it was not done in a way that the average home owner could’t picture themselves living in the home.  Often times I will have to get creative in showcasing the home at its best and hiding the homeowners stuff. For this home is was not a problem. I was simply able to  shoot the angles I wanted with out compromising anything.

One of my favorite features this home had was the window out the laundry room. This is not something I see often. However given that it was the laundry room the space was small and I needed to be strategic with where I placed the camera and triggered my flash in order to avoid having my figure be a huge reflection.  I wanted to make sure you have a great view of the exterior while also noticing the interior of the laundry room.  Not that having a window in the laundry room is on every home buyers list, but it is definitely one of those little extras that will make a buyer fall in love.

While walking through the home I noticed that the walls were more a peachy yellow color that I knew would end up ruining the final image if I didn’t light the spaces properly. This can be particularly difficult when trying to capture an outside view as well as lighting the interior.  Knowing how to use your lighting and the settings on your camera to your best advantage is something this is extremely helpful and has a great impact on your final image. Given the location of this fine home in Hurricane I knew capturing the slight outline of the mountains out the windows would help the agent sell the home. Everyone wants a view!

I grew up here in Southern Utah and recently moved back after spending 7 years in Vermont. I got into photography after being a stay at home mom for 10 years. I had no Idea I would have such a passion for it, but now I just can’t get enough! I love the summer weather, cliff jumping, anything crafty, spending time with my 4 kids and making the most out of every moment. My dad always told me the best way to make money in life is to find something you love doing that others will pay you for. I absolutely love the challenge of shooting the homes here in St George. Every home and client is different making every shoot an adventure and artistic challenge.
