The primary goal of staging your home is to make it look it's very best in photos and in person. This means that you'll probably need to pack up some items, put away some personal belongings and make the house as neutral and current, yet appealing as possible. It's very hard to do this on your own, so that's where Jeanette comes in.
Don't take it personal when she advises you to take photos down or pack up some of your favorite items. She's doing what's necessary to reach your goal, and that's to sell your home in the shortest amount of time for the highest amount of money. By staging your home properly, it should take your home to a whole new level. It should make your home appear large and open, feel inviting to others and make it impossible for potential buyers to resist seeing it in person.
