The Process

Our typical family is one that loves to be together, probably hasn’t had family pictures in a while…some as long as the last family wedding, but love the fact that they get to spend time together in their happy place, the beach and want to document that! They also love tangible art, beautiful pictures that are displayed in their home and that are keepsakes for generations.  If this sounds like you, then we are a great fit!

Let’s Chat!

We love to begin the experience with a phone call!  We know, sometimes it’s just easier to send an email, but with our 10-minute chat, we can learn all your dreams and desires for your custom portrait session.  We can discuss your style, your goals, and how our photographers (Sara-Anne and Gable) can best serve you.  You can reach the studio at 919-597-0344 or fill out our simple contact form below!

Preparing for Your Session

We send a welcome box to you once your session is booked.  This will include a copy of our studio magazine, some tips on what to wear and more about the overall experience with Sara-Anne Photography.  It will introduce you to our team and help you prepare for our time together.  We value the experience, as we have been photographing families for over 14 years…that’s hundreds of families from all over the nation!  What a privilege!

After your Session

We will prepare your proofs to share with you in your reveal session about 2 weeks after your session.
Burlington, Greensboro and Chapel Hill clients (we’ll have you back in our studio)
Beach Clients (we’ll have you come to our office in Shallotte) or we’ll send you an online gallery for view.
There are no minimums or stuffy collections.  You just order what you wish.


We really pride ourselves on offering the highest quality of products that the industry offers.  We are a fine art studio and create art for our families to enjoy for generations.  We realize that digital images have their place and that you want to share your session with your friends, so most of our clients earn complimentary digital images with their fine art purchase.  Some of our beautiful products include session albums, framed prints, and canvases.   We recognize that it’s an investment and we offer flexible no interest payment plans on all our collections.
