It really is amazing what good photography can do for a house when you are trying to sell. Of course, that didn’t seem to matter for us because our house sold before we had any photos online for the buyer to see. But I have looked at a LOT of listings online and there are some that I just think “If that were my real estate agent, I would FIRE them.” It’s ALL about the marketing. I found out when shooting my house, even if the place is flooded with natural light, flash really makes a huge difference. Gotta use flash when trying to show brightness in a house. But the opposite is true when shooting people…I try NOT to use flash if I can get away with it.

I’ve been starting to freak out about how we are going to choose the perfect house in one day. Well, maybe two days. There are so many nice ones, but the perfect one? I’m just used to having more time to make such a HUGE decision. I don’t want to have any regrets. The good thing is a house JUST came on the market that looks fabulous, appears to be in a good location, and is priced significantly lower than most of the others we’re seeing. AND it’s vacant! Which would mean no temporary apartment for us 🙂 But we’ll see.

I’m really itching to do a newborn photography shoot, but I think I’m gonna miss Jenifer’s baby and none of my other friends have had babies lately…well at least not locally. Guess I’d better make some new pregnant friends when I get to Texas 🙂
