Frequently Asked Questions

Over the past 10 years, we have scouted all over south-east Queensland to find amazing backdrops for our photography shoots. The result is a short list of locations that meet the following criteria:

  1. Natural (no freshly mowed grass, or street signs in the background, for example)
  2. An attractive angle to the sun (it’s all about the light!)
  3. Private if possible.

To keep our locations as private as possible, we try to keep our locations exclusive for our clients only.

You can see our most popular locations in our Wardrobe Guide, which you can download above for free. 

A great question! Choice of clothing is actually very important when it comes to the overall look of your photographs. As such, we have put together a comprehensive list of clothing advice to help you decide what is best to wear – or to give you an excuse to go shopping!

Our Wardrobe Guide can be downloaded above for free. Take a look!

Absolutely! We allow a little extra time so we can photograph a variety of shots of the whole group, as well as individual family units, grandchildren, adult children with parents, cousins etc.

 

Cameron and Alana (owners of Sunlit Studios) are both 1 of 6 children. So, we are very accustomed to lots of children!

We have taken countless portraits of families with one or more children having special needs. Our strategy of having lots of fun during the shoot, instead of posing heavily, usually brings out the best in everyone.

Editing has two stages – Colour Correction and Retouching.

Colour Correction – this is performed on your photographs before your Appointment. By having the colours enhanced already, you’ll be able to make an informed decision on which expressions and moments you love the most for your Artwork.

Retouching and further enhancement – this stage is much more time and skill intensive. As such, we wait to see what photographs you choose for your Artwork, so we know which photographs to perform our premium skin retouching service on. This includes fixing things like double chins, bra straps, flyaway hairs, scars, tan lines, background distractions and any other requests you make to ensure we bring out the very best in you and your loved ones.

We take no shortcuts in the editing process and we know you are just going to love the results!

As a small, family owned and run business, we take great personal pride in our clients being 100% satisfied with their investment with Sunlit Studios.

Our commitment to our client’s satisfaction is evidenced by our reviews on Google and Facebook, which can be viewed here.

As such, if you are not 100% satisfied with the experience and photographs presented to you at your Design and Ordering Appointment, we will offer you, without hesitation, a full refund of the $400 Sunlit Experience fee.

Since our humble beginnings in 2010, we are still yet to receive a request for a refund.

Unfortunately, weather is something we can’t control. As our warm, colourful style of photography relies on at least a little bit of sunshine, we will always encourage you to reschedule your photography shoot to another, sunnier day.

As weather can change quickly and families often have hair and makeup booked in, we usually make the final decision the morning of the shoot as to whether we reschedule or not.

Rescheduling comes at no cost.

Absolutely! We accommodate interstate or overseas families in the following ways:

  1. We schedule the Shoot date AND a backup shoot date the next day in case of poor weather
  2. We provide an express editing service, so we can host you for your Design and Ordering appointment within 24 hours of your Shoot and before your holiday ends.
  3. World-wide shipping of your Artwork.

Our artwork options and pricing changes often, and that’s why we provide this information during a Phone or Zoom Consultation. Book a time to chat with our friendly team by clicking here.

 

You can also see our most common Artwork options and starting prices above.

You don’t need to – all artwork purchased includes a watermarked ‘Social Media’ digital photograph of your chosen artwork photographs for free!

We include the entire “Digital Collection” for free with all Artwork orders over $3,000. Most families qualify to receive this simply by investing in any of our larger Masterpiece Wall Collections.

 

The entire Digital Collection includes:

 

  • All photographs presented at your Appointment (around 30)

  • Professionally retouched by our in-house editing team on all photographs

 

The entire Digital Collection can also be purchased as a standalone product for $1,990.

The best part of our payment plans is that you receive your Artwork right away! We just hold on to the Digital photographs until the conclusion of the payment plan.

What Clients Say

"They say never work with children or animals. On top of a windy day, one skipped nap turned our baby upside down and we thought all was lost with a very exhausted and tired baby. We thought we would have to do the photoshoot all over again. But my faith in Sunlit Studios held up, and yet again they delivered the most beautiful photos. Cameron was brilliant and extremely helpful during the photo shoot. The team's attention to detail and editing skills are exceptional. I can’t believe we got such lovely family photos out of a very tired baby! Absolutely beautiful. I'm positive there will be future family photos with Sunlit Studios capturing our most precious moments as our story continues. Thank you so much Cameron and the team, we love your magic!"

"The whole Sunlit Studios experience was amazing. So professional and luxurious. Their home studio is fantastic with all the product types to inspect. The shoot was so easy and fun. Alana is so easy to get along with and she knows how to make you feel at ease. The appointment to choose our photos/product flowed smoothly. We took a picture of the wall in our house we wanted canvasses on. They could put all the photo layouts on the wall so we could see exactly what it would look like. We felt no pressure and the photos speak for themselves. It was also super exciting seeing MY photos on their Facebook/blog. We loved everything and the small touches and details along the way makes me want to start saving to make this a family tradition. The highlight of the whole experiences was mounting them on our wall- It becomes priceless. Thank you Sunlit Studios, Alana and Cameron!"

"We have had our fair share of not-so-great experiences with other services and I can confidently say that our search is over and sunlit studios are our "go to" people! Without going into the details of our experience, I can say that nothing was a problem- if there were obstacles such as bad weather or baby having a meltdown; Sunlit Studios always had a great back up plan and strived for perfection. Our post shoot experience was also wonderful and Cameron paid careful attention to our own specific needs and designed our products exactly how we wanted them to be! And no we weren't bribed by the delicious chocolate brownies on offer... although it came close. Our artwork is stunning and we receive so many compliments on it every time anyone sees it! I love that sunlit studios offer modern, stylish and contemporary photography products instead of just traditional prints. "

I get compliments from everyone who see's them. Sunlit have definitely captured the love and happiness my boys and I share. Thank you Sunlit Studios! "

"Alana, Cameron and the whole team are incredibly talented. My husband and I have had several shoots with Sunlit Studios over the years, including portraits done with each of our families & maternity photos. The quality of their work is second to none, and we have several gorgeous canvases in our home to attest to this. We look forward to having many more precious moments captured in the future. I highly recommend Sunlit Studios!"

"We have been photographed three times with Sunlit Studios and each time we have walked away loving not only our photos, but the entire experience and the friendships we’ve made with Alana and Cam. Truly talented photographers and genuinely beautiful people. We recommend Sunlit to anyone and everyone at every opportunity we get. We honestly can’t wait to share another experience with them in the future."

"Picked up our family canvases tonight and I'm blown away with how they look. The ability to capture our family so naturally and the essence of our love was unbelievable. We will definitely be back again even with a couple of hiccups with the weather, the whole process was amazing. We can't wait to capture our life's moments with Sunlit Studios and have something to keep that will let us relive our most cherished memories forever."
