Frequently Asked Questions

Where are you located and do you travel?

I am based out of Milton Ontario, and serve Brampton, Mississauga, Milton, Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton, Niagara Region, and all of Southwestern Ontario. I travel all over Ontario (and Canada) for weddings, engagements and family sessions.

How long until we get our photos?

For a typical family or portrait shoot it takes about 6 weeks. For weddings it can take about 10 weeks.

Where does our engagement/family session take place? Can we pick the location?

You definitely can pick the location! All sessions are typically done outdoors using natural light, other than newborn and some Christmas mini sessions. If you need some ideas I can provide some suggestions. Try to think of a location that really represents you as a couple or family, such as the beach, the woods, the carnival?

Do we need a photography permit for our photo location?

Some places require you to have a permit for taking photos on their property. This will be your responsibility to obtain this.

We aren’t sure what to wear. Can you provide some ideas?

Absolutely! I suggest wearing something that makes you feel confident and beautiful. I can send you colour and outfit suggestions (based on the season) prior to your session.

Why do we need an engagement session?

These sessions are included in your wedding package, as it provides a chance for you and I to hang out and get to know each other before the big day. It is also a great opportunity for you as a couple to get used to being in front of the camera. It is a really relaxed and fun session where we go to a location of your choosing and have a blast taking photos!

Why should I choose Captivating Life Photography to take our photos?

I love to have fun and meet new people! I love hearing each individual’s story and watching the dynamics of each couple’s and family’s relationship unfold. I want to make your session something you look forward to. I try to make everyone feel really relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera. Not everything has to be posed! I will follow your lead as a couple or your children’s lead during a family session. If your kids want to run around, play on the playground, splash in the water at the beach, I will be right there with them. My passion is to captivate life in the form of a picture; to portray love, joy, and beauty! I love capturing some candid family moments that you will treasure forever!

What about props?

Feel free to bring along props that represent you as a couple or your family!! Anything to make the photos truly your own. Be as creative as you like!

What if it is raining?

If it happens to be a miserable rainy day we can definitely reschedule. I want you to have awesome pictures. I will make the call on the weather conditions and let you know.
