From an Instagram post and appropriate here:
So many of my clients start excusing their houses the minute I walk in. Worried it’s not good enough, embarrassed that people live there when there’s no need to be. I’ve shot in a handful of truly remarkable homes, but 75% of my at home sessions are normal, darkish, with stuff shoved in a closet I’m not supposed to look in, and juuuuust enough options to make it work. I understand why people are hesitant to shoot at home. It’s a little scary, and the over saturation of perfect rooms makes us doubt what’s really important. **It’s not the cleanliness of the location, I can promise you that.** Please trust me with your space. Even if it’s a dark, messy, shared, basement bedroom.
Correction: especially if it’s that.
