Highlighting the Beauty of Homes in the Summer

The summer months provide a great opportunity to showcase the exterior of your home. You can draw attention to outdoor amenities, such as balconies and paths, as well as the views of your landscaping while it is still green and lush.

Here are a few of the homes we photographed this summer and their beauty inside and out!

Summer is the perfect time to capture how this unique home feels like part of the landscape. Almost like it just popped up there one day!

This feeling continues with the exposed beams and rough-hewn bunk beds, as well as the entire loft space upstairs. It’s so homey, cozy, and rustic.

And yet the living room space could fit into any modern home, with comfy couches and a nice, large television. Check out how you still feel like you’re part of the forest with those large windows!

And the kitchen is a perfect blend of both worlds – woodsy but still modern.

This next house evokes feelings of stability and solidity, but the summer greenery keeps it inviting. And there are plenty of comfortable touches to discover inside.

Talk about inviting! It’s like the lanterns on the steps are guiding you up to the door where you will find solace within.

And here is where summer photography really makes a difference. You can see just how many trees there are in the backyard as well as the privacy provided, making that porch the ideal place for kicking back at the end of the day.

At first, this house might not seem to benefit from the summer photo shoot. After all, the landscape appears pretty barren.

But nature is there if you look for it, and the warm weather allowed us to create images like this, really highlighting not just the view but also making the interior space feel connected to the outside.

Even this view from the master bedroom onto the balcony and the woods beyond gives you a great idea of what you could be waking up to.

As this house shows, when you shoot at the right time of year, you can find no shortage of good “view” shots. Like…

16701WoodsPointPiano.jpeg

…this piano, which feels like it might just decide to float out onto the lawn.

16701WoodsPointeLiving.jpeg

Or this stunning wall of windows.

Or this bath opening out to the sky.

But, of course, where summer photography really shines is with those properties that have a lot of nature to showcase to begin with. The hill down to the entrance of this house works like gravity to suck you in to the natural surroundings.

Like this backyard trail inviting you to explore, and maybe find...

…your own private deck to relax and enjoy the burbling creek.

Even looking out from the house itself, there is such a sense of freedom and openness and space. You are not just buying the walls and ceiling, but your own piece of Alaska.

If you want to highlight the green, natural surroundings of your home, it’s worth thinking about getting pictures taken over the spring or summer – even if you don’t plan to put it on the market for a while. If you also have photos taken during the winter, you can showcase the year-round beauty for the property!

Custom Homes Are Amazing to Photograph

Twilight_DMD_1669-FULL.jpg

Nothing beats photographing an amazing new construction or remodeled home!  We recently had the opportunity to photograph a new home for one of our favorite builders in the Wasilla and Palmer area:  Gillespie Custom Homes

I grew up in the Mountain West of the United States so this style of home has a special place in my heart.  It reminds me of a ski resort in Northern Utah or maybe a home in Jackson Hole Wyoming.  It makes me feel at home.
