A Day in the Life of a Real Estate Photographer

Hello there, fellow adventurers and snapshot enthusiasts! I just wrapped up another day filled with photo shoots, only to come home to a surprise – my website greeted me with the dreaded “white screen of death.” Yep, I had no clue what that was until today. I mean, I’ve battled rain and shine to get the perfect shot, but a WordPress glitch? That’s a new one on my checklist!

Sun, Rain, and Snapshots

My day started in two charming little towns, tasked with capturing the essence of two distinct houses for a client. Imagine this: one minute, the sun’s beaming down, making everything look postcard-perfect. The next, it’s raining heavily. Talk about weather having mood swings!

The WordPress Battle

After my weather-wrestling photo frenzy, I was eager to upload the latest “working day snapshots” onto my site. But instead of a warm welcome, I was met with that infamous white screen. It’s a known drama in the WordPress world, but it was my debut performance.

Determined, I rolled up my sleeves even higher. The situation called for drastic measures: I had to completely delete the wp-admin and wp-includes directories and replace them with fresh ones. Just when I thought I was out of the woods, permalinks decided to join the party uninvited, throwing a few more loops my way. But guess what? Luck was on my side, and with a bit of tinkering and thanks to my hubby who helped a lot, everything clicked into place. And here we are, back up and running with a smile. The snapshots from my day’s work were finally ready to bask in the spotlight. 😀 (A case of beer was accidentally left in the car and it was driven around with me for a while)

Through Lens and Laughter

Let’s rewind a bit and talk about the heart of today’s adventure – the photography. Each town had its own story, whispered through the architecture of the houses I was capturing. The weather’s indecision added a layer of challenge, but hey, that’s the life of a photographer. You adapt, you laugh, and you capture moments. There’s something magical about chasing the perfect light, even if it means getting caught in the rain or squinting against the sun.

Driving Through Drama

Here’s a little secret: half the fun is in the journey. Me, driving between locations, I felt like a character in a movie – battling the elements, racing against time, all while keeping my camera gear safe and sound. I even made a little vlog about it. Imagine me, narrating the day’s escapades against a backdrop of raindrops one second and sunshine the next. It’s like nature couldn’t decide on the day’s theme.

Lessons Learned and Laughter Shared

Every day is a learning curve. Today, it was figuring out how to deal with a virtual hiccup while juggling the physical ones. It’s funny when you think about it – how a day can be so packed with unexpected twists and turns. But that’s what makes life interesting, right? Plus, now I have a new story to tell and a few more tricks up my sleeve for next time WordPress decides to throw a tantrum.

Snapshots and Smiles

So, there you have it – a day in the life of a photographer. From combating weather whims to wrestling with web woes, it’s all in a day’s work. And the best part? Getting to share these moments with you. Whether it’s through the lens or through words, every snapshot tells a story. Today’s story was a bit more… digital than usual. But hey, that’s the beauty of it.
