Small condominiums, like this one in downtown Bellingham, call for the same attention to detail and quality photography as million-dollar homes. The buyer is different, but she still wants to be able to imagine herself living in this neat, clean, and tidy space.
Just like bigger homes, I aim to show how the spaces in the condo are connected, as well as a feeling for the light and openness.
Showing the great room, with the dining area in the foreground and the rest of the room and kitchen in the background, helps to convey just how roomy this smaller condo really is.
The galley kitchen, while small, has plenty of storage and work space. It doesn’t feel cramped because we can see into the great room.
I often photograph bedrooms from the doorway, but in this small master bedroom it seemed important to show the closet and give a hint of the en suite bathroom as well as the hardwood flooring.
This condo didn’t have much of a view, but it was still important to show that there was some outside sitting space with a little privacy.
Whether a home is large or small, I’ll give it the attention it needs to show to best advantage.
