~~~EXPRESS $85~~~ STANDARD $95~~~
The Standard Package is $95 for up to a full hour of shoot time with up to a total of 40 photos. Delivery is the next day, typically by 11am (via Google Drive, Hightail, or Dropbox). Travel fee may also be added if the listing is outside of Carroll County. Larger and/or unique homes may need additional time/photos and the fee may be adjusted accordingly.
The Express Package is $85 for 30 minutes of shoot time, and 30 photos. Delivery is the next day, typically by 11am (via Google Drive, Hightail, or Dropbox). Travel fee may also be included if the listing is outside of Carroll County. ** The EXPRESS PACKAGE MUST BE REQUESTED AHEAD OF TIME.
THE FOLLOWING IS RECOMMENDED FOR ALL EXPRESS PACKAGES:
1) All lights on
2) All vehicles moved out of the driveway
3) Trash cans, pet food bowls, anything you and/or the seller do NOT want in the photos should be moved ahead of time, PRIOR to the photoshoot. 30 minutes goes by very quickly!
Photo Editing & Delivery
All photos are "cleaned up" as needed to show the rooms and layout of the home as attractively as possible. Please be aware that some Photoshop "fixes" are more time consuming than others and may incur additional fees.
If you have specific concerns or requests, please share them in advance. Often just by changing the camera angle slightly, we can avoid the issue completely!
All photos are color and exposure corrected, cropped and resized as needed. Typically the photographer will shoot more to "cover the bases." Resolution is 2048 x 1365 x 300 unless otherwise requested-- large enough for brochure printing and also appropriate for display on social media.

Great for those listings that need a "little extra" attention. Houses that are larger than typical (for example, ranches, farms, commercial properties, and/or houses that have special features) can easily have as many as 40-50 different photographic angles.
For an extra $20 request a web gallery when scheduling your appointment. The web gallery will be uploaded the evening of the shoot OR the next morning (in lieu of photo delivery).
Take the time you need to select the photos you want for the package you ordered.
Please consult with photographer in ADVANCE in regard to timelines (allowing 2-3 days for the selection and delivery process).

Have you thought about video?
Ask Sue for your FREE pilot video
These are great for homes that have a lot of extra features, neighborhood amenities, or anything that is a little different from usual.
FOR QUICKEST TURNAROUND ON THE VIDEO PLEASE:
1) Make sure you request it when you schedule your appointment, so that time can be allowed for the additional editing processes needed.
2) Send Sue the text, color preference and any logo material you may want to have incorporated in advance, i.e. the day of the shoot.
The first video is FREE! Typically the fee will be $40 and include upto 3 min of slideshow video with text and music. It's nice because the video can really enhance the "walk thru" experience of the viewer and as many photos as needed can be added to the video. ALL of the great features of the home can be highlighted! Some agents are even using UTUBE (Google account) to showcase their listings with videos.
Frequently Asked Questions
EXTRA TIME NEEDED!
The house is gorgeous! But there are a lot of collectibles
Three little kids and Mom has a lot to do!
Moving to assisted living and needs some extra staging..
If you ever think you might need a little extra time for a shoot-- just let me know. Sometimes, homes with lots of collectibles and/or staging "need" the extra 30 min, which can really make for higher quality photos. The additional fee is only ($15). If we don't use the time, there's no charge.
Just give me a heads up so that I can adjust my schedule to avoid running late on my next appointment!
