Allen Real Estate Photography

1048 Carlisle


We open up this series of photos with the lovely exterior of the home. A bright exterior shot is key, but the rays of sunlight were not in a position to shine on the front of the home. However, the speckled brick in combination with the light trim and front door kept the shadows from overtaking the front elevation exterior images. Don’t you just love the sunset shot? With CSP, a free sunset image is always included with our HDR photography. 

Entry to Sitting & Dining Room

This home has three factors for the best real estate photography:

  • Ample Space
  • Lots of Natural Light
  • Consistent Tones Throughout

Watch as you move through out the property, how each space has these qualities. The spaciousness is amplified by the home being unfurnished; all rooms have a lot of natural light, as well as fixtures, to fill in the shadows; and all of the rooms maintain the same color pallet. 


Kitchen & Breakfast Area

As we move beyond the front of the home, we find ourselves in the kitchen and breakfast area. The photographers did a great job of framing the breakfast area space; thereby showing how this area connects to the front of the home as well as the kitchen. The second kitchen shot follows that connection by showing the mutual doorframe and cabinetry. The straight on shots of the cooking area and sink nicely mirror each other and also mirror the two angled images, as well. The four images guide you through the kitchen and into the living room… but before we go to the living room, let’s stop and appreciate the giant skylight that illuminates the entire kitchen. Beautiful.

Living Room

The living room is a simple area of this home, but has interesting light play on the floor that guides the eye toward the focal point of the larger area, which is the kitchen! Notice how the fan stays centered (and thus doesn’t get distorted) as we move around the room.



Primary Suite & Bath

The primary suite has such beautiful natural light coming through the windows, and the angled wall with the bathroom door adds and interesting touch. The bathroom is a lovely shape to allow three well placed straight on shots to capture each element (the sink, the shower, the tub), and also show their connection.

Secondary Bedrooms, Secondary Bath & Utility

The secondary bedrooms have lovely tones and simple, but plentiful, lighting. 

The secondary bathroom is shot so that you can cleverly see the back of the bathroom through the mirror; thereby, revealing the location (and cool tile) of the shower/tub combination. 

We end with the utility room. Some may think it a boring space to focus on, but there are a lot of lines in the image that really fill the space and make it interesting. Guiding lines are fun for photographers… where do the lines guide your gaze?

This home was photographed by our husband and wife duo, Shane and Jessica Steeves. Well done, you two! Well done.
