Testing 1, 2.. :: Knoxville Photographer

Well hello!  It has been a loooonnnnnggggg while since I have posted anything on my blog, but I’m back in the saddle and I have been busy, even though maybe it seemed like there were just crickets around here.  🙂  How have you been?  I’ve missed you all!   Here is a quick run down of what is going on these days::

– Yes, I am booking sessions.  I’m currently doing about two sessions a month.

– Yes, I am booking a few select weddings per year.

– Yes, I have all kinds of things to share with you, like my new found love of quilting, Keto, my Jeep, books,
essential oils, makeup, scripture writing, cooking, and…. the list literally can go on forever.

But before we dig into all of that, I want to share a few of things I’ve worked on since being on sabbatical and I hope you will enjoy them!

Three of my 5 sweet nephews!

It feels good to be back working on projects that last a life time.  I’ve learned a lot about myself and life over the last year and it has impacted the way
I view sessions.  In short, life is art.  All of it.  Feel free to connect with me and I would love to hear you say hi!

For Sale By Owner :: Seymour TN

It has been a little bit since I’ve photographed a house, but this cozy log home was just what I needed to put myself back in gear.  Nestled in Seymour on a lovely 21 acres, this house is perfect for someone who loves the quiet of country and the convenience of working in Knoxville.

 

Just over this tree line you can see the Great Smoky Mountains.

Rows of blueberry bushes

I loved all of the mature trees on the property.  They are absolutely gorgeous!

The property is absolutely gorgeous and so peaceful!


While I was shooting the back deck, I could just imagine sitting here in a rocking chair drinking coffee and watching the rain.

Cabin living at its finest!  Isn’t it so pretty?!

3 reasons your house isn’t showing

For the sell it yourselfer::

 

While I’m not a real estate agent, I’ve been in this business long enough (Sean remodels homes to sell for a living and I take pictures of them) to know a thing or two (or three!) of why your house isn’t showing.  I mean, we both know that your house is a steal, but the inquiries are crickets.   Let’s get that house sold!

 

Your listing is lacking character.

You,my friend, know all the lovely details and features of your home like the back of your hand.  Tell it’s story!!!  I’m not saying write a novel, but if you want your buyer to see themselves living in your home, you are going to need to paint a gorgeous picture of them LIVING in your home.

 

“The living room is painted a lovely shade of ivory letting your new lake view pop into the room with it’s vibrant colors.”

“Can lighting was thoughtfully installed in the kitchen to create an even flow of light.
Not only does it accent your backsplash beautifully, but cooking those delicious favorites
your family loves is much easier with the proper lighting.”

For the love of clutter.

People have a hard time seeing through clutter.  Yes, I know it doesn’t come with the house… most times, but all of that clutter and personal belongings makes it hard for the buyer to see themselves and not you living in your house.  Take every thing in your home that is not 100% necessary and either throw it away, donate it, or put it in storage somewhere.  And then clean and show off those gorgeous parts of your home that even you almost forgot was there.  This does a couple of things for you – 1) Helps your moving process! 2) Makes your home appear larger.

Your photos.

Yes, I’m going there.  Your photos tell the story of your house better than any words you can write.  If your photos look cheap and icky, buyers are going to have that immediate feeling of your home.  If you aren’t a good photographer, then hire a real estate photographer that can capture your home’s beauty.  If you are doing your photos yourself, please, please, I’m begging you PLEASE do not bump the saturation up to crazy not real levels.  If your sky looks a shade of blue that you would never see in person, then the buyers will think other photos are doctored and this is just as bad as cheap, icky, crappy pictures.  Keep your colors and tones to real life.
