Last December, I was contacted by Melanie & Eric Sorenson who reside in Mississippi, enquiring if I do photograph houses. They had found my contact details via Google search for local photographers from Milan area. (Yay for SEO efficacy!) They wanted a gallery canvas of the house which Eric had grew up in and has fond memories of as a special present for Eric’s mother. The house has now been sold and the aunt and uncle who are residing in it now are in the process of moving.
Coincidently, I had just completed an online real estate & architectural photography course by the brilliant Mike Kelley Photography. So obviously I said a heartily “Yes!” to the task.
Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough time to meet the Christmas deadline, so we decided to push it as a Valentine’s Day present instead. A lot of preparations were involved from recceing the house for the best angle, as well as working out the project timeline accordingly. Cut to the chase, project was a success. Below you can see how the house looks with a single shot, with the Mike Kelley magical twilight shoot processes and lastly, the happy tears from Eric’s mom when she received the canvas.
The Sorensons left me a 5-Star review –
“Anjali, we would like to express our deep appreciation for the work you did for us. Through the wonders of social media, we found you to fulfill an everlasting memory for our mother. We contacted you from Mississippi to photograph our mother’s family home. You promptly contacted us and began working to make this come to fruition. Your professionalism in this process kept us abreast of every step you made in this venture, and produced a final product that was beyond our expectations.
Eric and Melanie Sorenson”
This is my first step transitioning into commercial photography, which will include real estate and architectural photography. I am very excited with this new expansion of my photography services! 2015, bring it on!
