your friendly photographer
I am Katherine Wheeler, a life long Photoshopper, wife and mother to a spunky little girl. I work from home so I can provide the education my daughter needs. Before I had my daughter I used to be a professional portrait photographer. I enjoyed photographing children and couples. Weddings were fun too. Throughout the years my husband and I searched for our dream home. Naturally I took my camera and photographed the homes. Unfortunately we never found our dream home. And I've noticed from listings we were interested in, the photographs were absolutely horrible. There were so many! If only I got a hold of those images I can brighten them up making them look more lovely and comfortable.. My current goal is to provide affordable photographic help to you who'd like a fellow mother with photographic magic to sparkle up your photos of your homes. Let's show your potential buyers the warmth and love of your home. Something they can experience and write their own stories in.
To get the most of this exciting experience and to save $$$ on cosmetic retouching please consider the tips below:
Most flattering time to photograph is in the late afternoon or morning time.
For our safety please have all pets in a secured location.
Please have your home as clean as possible.
Mow and trim the yard, water the grass ahead of time but not the day of photography.
Have all animal feces removed from the yard.
Put away clutter and any distracting elements.
Make the beds.
All house guests will need to vacate to the outside of the house while I photograph your home
If you have more lamps, bring them out. :-)
(All liabilities are released when photographer enters the property for photographer is currently not insured. Photographer will use extreme caution and carefulness when maneuvering about the property.)
