2018 - A Look Back

I was meaning to write and publish the post all week - and there's nothing like a 2018 count down to get my fingers typing.

I worked with so many amazing Realtors, Homeowners, Companies, Designers, and Service Providers in 2018. Here's a look back at the properties that I'm still thinking about...

Drumroll please...

*in no particular order*

1) 605 E Woodcrest Drive, Appleton, WI

Listing by Mary Bosio of Coldwell Banker

This home was so charming, and the updated kitchen was perfection! I photographed this home just before Christmas - the fireplace and Christmas tree make this home look like it popped out of a Thomas Kinkade painting.

2) 2407 S Driftwood Lane, Appleton WI

Listing by Matt VandenAvond of Vandy Real Estate

House don't have to be huge to photograph well - but this homeowner went above and beyond to stylishly stage their home. Clean paint. Great up-to-date furniture. Custom touches. What more could you want?!

3) 9407 Center Road, Neenah, WI

Listing by Ellen St.Pierre of Coldwell Banker

I'll take any excuse to fly my drone. And this 12 acre property certainly was in need of drone photos and video! Unfortunately, I photographed it on the worst mosquito day of the year - I'd sacrifice myself for great images any day.

P.S. Check out the video here:

4) 645 Yorkshire Road, Neenah, WI

Listing By Mary Bosio of Coldwell Banker

Usually, when selling a home, I see gray and beige walls. Nothing wrong with that. But this character home had the most charming detail with blue walls. Not every home could pull it off... but this worked.

5) Bayside Market Place, Oneida Street, Green Bay

Photographed for Development Company

Photographing commercial properties has become my new jam. Most commercial work wants as little "human" interaction as possible... A.K.A. no people in any images. It was great photographing this site because I was allowed a few people to be shown. I also took a few drone images of the surrounding properties to show traffic patterns and activity in the area.

6) 522 E Tallgrass Drive, Appleton

Listing by Kelly Davies of Kelly Davies Homes Team

This updated home was nestled in a North Appleton Subdivision - I honestly fell in love with the tall ceilings. And, I'm pretty sure the master bathroom is bigger than my bedroom. 10+ points for a Seinfeld poster in the basement!

7) 1200 Pallisades Drive, Appleton

Listing by Mary Bosio of Coldwell Banker

Shooting a vacant home can be a daunting task. You almost HAVE to shoot with furniture in mind. But, can you imagine the cost for staging a home like this?! Outrageous.

Luckily, I put my virtual staging to good use, and was able to help the future homeowner "picture" what their home could look like.

Thank you to everyone I worked with in 2018! I can't wait to see the homes you have for me in 2019!
