Tis the Season! || Home of the Week

1357 Union Street Lancaster, PA

As a photographer, I live for capturing emotion. Not going to lie, as a real estate photographer, it's not always easy. It's not like homes smile, giggle or have cute expression in the same way that human's do. And not every home has an emotion. But the one's that do? Let me tell you, it's a dream to photograph!

Homes smile to me in their own way. Instead of expressing a physical emotion, homes make you feel.  And these kind are always my favorite to share. 

A house is a home because of the people in it & the love that is shared. This house I'm about to share is definitely a home. From the moment I walked through the front door, Christmas & Tidings of Good Cheer met me at the door. There is no doubt that this home's emotion captured my attention right away. 

I wish I were in the market to buy, because this might just have been the one!

From the christmas tree in the living room to the modernized light turquoise-blue cabinets and white appliances in the kitchen followed up with the adorable décor all throughout the home, this is a must see! It’s on the corner of the city but has a view of farmland from the backyard. This one will go fast, in fact, I believe it may be "pending" as of now. But please, take a peak!

Welcome to 1357 Union Street!!

I hope you enjoy this home as much as I do!  Listed by Jim Englert with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. If you'd like to the official listing, click HERE!

Before & After: A Little Goes a Long Way

Before & After: A Little Goes a Long Way

This is a perfect example of how a little bit of work goes a long way. Clearing off countertops, vanities & dressers make SUCH a huge impact on a shot. The image on the left is my iPhone Camera & the photograph on the right was taken with my Professional Camera and edited. It's basically the same shot but one is so much more pleasing to the eye. Just a little tip for y'all!

A Rainy Day Wonderland || Home of the Week

4350 Horseshoe Pike in Honeybrook, PA

A lot of people would be surprised to hear this, but I love photographing certain homes on a rainy day with imperfect weather. A lot of people want those "blue skies" in their photographs, and while I love those days too (preferably with those awesome white puffy clouds), the rain brings out so much texture to the outside shots & always provide even lighting inside the home.

This home is one of those homes where the rain is a good thing. The rain makes you want to come in, curl up on the couch with a mug of hot apple cider and stay awhile. And hey, maybe overnight? This home was once a Bed & Breakfast so it's invitational, comfortable & cozy.

Before you even step inside this home, you are greeted by the most beautiful porch that is colored with all those rich colors that encapsulates all that is fall. I absolutely love when the Front Door sets the whole tone for a home and this one does to the max. So get ready!! And come on in!

Farmhouse with a Twist || Home of the Week


515 Country Club Road in Coatesville

I have been busy photographing so many lovely homes these days! All the homes I want to share usually end up selling before I even have the change to write about them...but that's a good thing, right? 

This home is no different. It's simply unlike any home I've photographed before; It's a Modern Farmhouse with a beautiful semi-open floorplan. This home was an original Farmhouse but has been updated and still holds that rustic charm but in a contemporary way. There's so much to love about this home starting with the view of the Golf Course from the front yard all the way to the original fireplaces that are in the Living Room & Guest's Bedroom and the spacious Great Room that has been added on to the home.

This home has such a beautiful flow to it and each room has it's own personality but comes together in a wonderful way. If you look closely in the frame above the fireplace in the Living Room, you will see the original blueprints of the home. It's the little things that really makes this home so unique. Please, take a peak inside and see more...you won't regret it!

Modern Rustic Home on Elm Street || Home of the Week

13 West Elm Street in Conestoga

The moment I walked into this home, I knew it would be my next house tour. It is such an exquisite home, one that is hard to find in Lancaster County. There is something about this home that draws you in and makes you feel like you're in a cozy hideaway that is far from everything. When really, you're just 15 minutes outside Lancaster City. Whether it be the adorable bar area that meets you at the door, the high fireplace or the gorgeous natural light that pours in from the skylights above...you immediately feel invited inside. Homes like this make me wish I were in the market to buy a home...one day! 

Come step inside and see this charmer! I have a feeling it won't last long...

This home is listed by Danica Nicklaus with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. I also had the pleasure to photograph her beautiful wedding and can't wait to share that in the coming weeks!

Charming City Home on Pearl Street || Home of the Week

Let's start with the fact that this home is located on Pearl Street. I don't know about you but it's extra special when you find a charming home that happens to have a pretty great street name too. 

Photographing homes in the city can be a little tricky at times, but they are some of my favorite homes to photograph. Especially when they are filled with character and so much love inside the home. Mix in some fun color palettes and an eye for design, this home must be shared. 

Take a peak into this City Charmer located at 111 Pearl Street in Lancaster PA. Listed by Michael Stoltzfus with Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. For more details on the listing, click HERE!

Take a peak inside and enjoy the tour!
