Mirrors are hard to shoot around.

Mirrors are a reflection of your photography skills.

Sometimes two photographers are needed to get the right shot.

Professional attire is recommended if you are going to be included in the photo.

You need to clean up your room and release the dog from the cage.

Didn’t Get the Memo

April 10th, 2015 · 1 Comment

It is highly recommended that you straighten up your house before selling.  And remove visual distractions, like Spider-Man blankets.

Repeat…no visual distractions, like Arizona Cardinals football blankets.  Or a bra on the bed.  Or wolf bedspreads.

Please turn off the TV, clean the ceiling fan blades, and unknot the curtains.  Yes, we see you, Mr. Socks, sitting on the bed.

Please remove kisses and frosting on the windows.  And maybe remove the mirrors from around the bathtub.

Please remove the vacuum, the shelves (with full encyclopedia set) blocking the window, the blanket blocking the other window.  And the bicycle, the wind chime, and the dream catchers.

Please turn off the TV.

Fifty Shades of Gray Hair

April 9th, 2015 · No Comments

These young whippersnappers with their fancy latex/rubber S&M toys; they think they invented sex toys.  But they have nothing on Kinky Grandma.  She’s 100% old school & proud of it!  She puts all her original “toys” on display in her home:  belts, reins for horse play, ropes, mouth gags.

Not sure what Kinky Grandma does with the hand saw, so I’d be extra nice to her just in case.

The yoke’s on you if you upset Kinky Grandma.

Too Cluttered For Buyers

April 8th, 2015 · No Comments

These five family rooms need help with home staging.  They’re too visually distracting for buyers.

The sellers are hoping the toys will distract you from seeing the bent ceiling fan blade.

Does everything need to be on display?  Stop clowning around.
