“We all want to see your room in it’s entirety, but it’s the details that really make a space. Take a few photos of larger areas of your room and then get a bit closer to showcase favorite aspects of that area. Maybe there’s a DIY project that you worked so hard on, or a family heirloom that you included as a personal touch. All of those things help to tell the story of your space and are just as (or even more) important than the full room shots.”
