Frequently Asked Questions
The only way to make sure an image will be seen by future generations is to put it in a format that doesn't require a machine to read it.

What is a reveal & Order session?
This meeting takes place at my studio a week to 10 days after your portrait sitting, and this is the fun part! This is where you get to pick from 25-30 of your best photos (all professionally edited with a magazine-techniques) which ones you would like to purchase. There are 3 products to choose from to display your chosen photos:
- Gallery-style wall art
- Heirloom albums
- Individual matted prints, which, when purchased in bulk, create Folio Box Collections.
Every photo you purchase comes with two digital files: a backup file so you may reprint the portrait should something happen to the original, and a social media file, resized and lightly watermarked to prevent compression on Facebook and confusion about how to give credit.
Do you have digital packages?
While digital back-up files are provided with every order, they are not sold individually. The studio focuses on printing your portraits, and provides a la carte products so that customers only purchase exactly what they love. (Packages tend to "force" the customer into committing to images they aren't crazy about.) Think of it as, "I purchased the digital image, and wow, now I'm getting the actual print, also!"
Do you only shoot in studio?
While 85-90% of all portrait sessions do take place at the studio on the Georgetown Square, I will photograph you wherever in the world you'd prefer! On location and/or travel fees apply, except for newborn portraits done in Williamson County.
Women will start hair and makeup at 8am and begin shooting around 9:15. If your spouse or family is also being photographed, they will come around 9:45 instead. Additional makeovers are available and start at 8AM as well.
What time do shoots take place?
While there is no order minimum or purchase obligation, the average client chooses to invest around $2700 on product during the Reveal & Order session. Some clients may buy one folio print while others will purchase full folio box collections, wall art, and albums all at the same time. It is completely up to you. For a full pricing list please request a complimentary consultation at Anna's studio!
