Kernway Street Real Estate Photography – Bloomfield Hills, Michigan

We had the pleasure of shooting a classic colonial home for sale on Kernway in Bloomfield Hills, MI. The house has four bedrooms, 2.5 baths, and a finished basement. The rest of the house has hardwood floors, and most of the walls are painted an array of grays that gives off a home-y, comfortable feel. The white borders and accents around the house are a stark contrast from the gray but gives the home a classic vibe. If you walk through the sliding glass door to the backyard, you will find a brick patio and extra privacy thanks to the surrounding trees. This house is ready to be a home, all it needs is you!

Yanich Drive – Real Estate Photography – Troy, Michigan

We stopped by a home on Yanich Drive in Troy for a real estate shoot. The colonial is just over 1,800 square feet with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. There’s an attached two car garage, a wood-burning fireplace, and a large yard. The basement is partially finished and in good condition. In the back of the house is a nice wooden deck, great for the warm weather months in Michigan. We included some photos from the shoot to share with you!

Fieldstone – Farmington Hills Real Estate Photography

Tuesday morning, racing to beat the eventual rain, we started off bright and early in Farmington Hills.

 

Listed by Earl Newman, this Fieldstone home is right off of the intersection of Twelve Mile and Middlebelt. A 4 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home with a detached 2-car garage, it also features a front space on the main floor which can be used as an office, sitting room, or library. The patio in the backyard is surrounded by tall trees, creating an air of privacy from neighboring houses and the main road that runs behind the home, which also provide nice scenery and add to the landscaping.

The front of the home, with plenty of trees and flowers to set it apart from neighboring houses.

 

The master bedroom has an attached walk-in closet for extra storage, vanity and powder area, and bathroom complete with a bathtub, glass door shower, and double sink. The bedroom itself has a double window that looks out onto the street, and is very vibrant and warm.

The remaining two bedrooms share a large bathroom in the hallway, and are plenty spacious and bright for children, guests, offices, and more.

Many of the house’s features are very modern, including kitchen and bathroom sinks, and lighting. The granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and lightly stained cabinets and floor give the kitchen a bright and new look. The kitchen and small dining area also have an island in the center that has a power outlet perfect for an on-the-go morning, and sliding glass door that leads into the backyard.

The kitchen, which is bordered on the left by a small dining area and the full living room (not pictured), and on the right by a fuller dining room, that attaches to a sitting area. The kitchen also walks out onto the back patio via a sliding glass door.

 

The home also has a larger dining room for hosting company, just off the kitchen and connected to the sitting room.

The full dining room and sitting area, which is located at the front of the house just off the foyer.

 

There is also a larger living room with a peaked ceiling and fireplace, overlooking the backyard, perfect for lounging around on rainy or snowy days all year round. Especially since the weather this summer has been anything but predictable.

Highland Drive – Novi Real Estate Photography

On June 24, we went out to Novi again for another real estate shoot. The home, a high-ceiling, 2,264 sq. foot home listed by Joy Montgomery of Montgomery Hill Realty, is for sale at $275,000.

The exterior of the home, which is landscaped.

 

With high ceilings that culminate in a point just above the garage on the left side of the house, the home was architecturally beautiful and fun to photograph, providing for some interesting vertical shots in places you would least expect, like the foyer or the bathrooms.

The foyer (left), with a mirrored coat closet, which opens up into a sitting room (not pictured), a kitchen (shown at right), dining area, and a hallway which leads upstairs and into the larger living room

 

The home is very open, and is much larger than it appears on the outside due to the floor plan. The natural lighting provides for a nice glow throughout the home, regardless of the time of day, especially in the master bedroom, which is large and L-shaped, with two large windows overlooking the street.

The bathroom, which attaches to the master bedroom on one side (left), and to the hallway on the other (right). The bathroom is separated by a door in the middle.

 

The main level is perfect for entertaining company, with plenty of space to host in either sitting room, the dining area, or the larger living room. The backyard is bordered by trees on the back side and has a patio area just off the main living room, with sliding glass doors to get in and out.

Just off the kitchen and foyer, another great sitting room that overlooks the backyard.

 

All in all, nothing felt cramped, and moving around the house (even with a bunch of photo equipment in your hands) was easy and manageable. The house is painted in very light, neutral and calming colors, giving the place an easy and home-y feel.
