How to Prepare for a Home Photoshoot


Follow these quick and easy steps to prepare your home to be photographed.    

Nesterly Photoshoot Info: Our shoots take approximately 15-30 minutes and our photographer will take photos of your spare room, the bathroom, the street view of your home, and any other shared spaces you’d like to feature.


Step 1: Prepare lighting

  • Turn on all of the lights in the spaces that will be photographed and make sure the bulbs are working.
  • Open curtains and blinds to let natural light in.

Step 2: Tidy up

  • Straighten up your spare room (e.g., make the bed and clear side tables.)
  • Organize the bathroom (e.g., tidy toiletries, put the toilet seat down, fold towels.)
  • Clear floors (e.g., remove footwear, kids’ and pet toys.)
  • Organize any closet or storage space you are advertising.
  • Tidy the kitchen (e.g., clear countertops, hide trash baskets.)

Step 3: Go the extra mile

  • Display a bowl of fruit or vase of fresh flowers.
  • Tell your photographer about your favorite parts of your home, so we can capture them.
