Hi there! I'm  Nathalie

...the creative force behind Pictonat.  I use storytelling, brand photography, and strategy to help entrepreneurs shine online. With an intuitive touch, I craft narratives that capture emotions and true authentic personality.

On my journey to date, I've launched podcasts, co-authored a best-selling book, spoken on multiple stages, and helped over 100 entrepreneurs elevate their brand online. I bring 17 years of Financial Services expertise and an MBA from the Rotman School of Management to the table. Beyond work, I enjoy travelling, family adventures, escape rooms, and Peloton rides.

I'm known for my tenacity, energy, and intuition, believing everyone has a beautiful story to tell.

It’s been a wild heart-led month of connection from within that I’ve been visualizing and stepping into for months.

I share this recap to honour every experience I got to immerse in, sending gratitude to everyone I got to meet even in passing.

Because it brought so much joy and I feel so alive.

And it’s the new moon which means sending gratitude to what happened since the last moon cycle and calling in intentions for this delicious new moon in Gemini ♊️

Now what’s next for June? What are you calling in? For me, the theme is birthday celebration and embodiment of stepping into your true authentic self, and summer photoshoots 🎉 and I can’t wait to guide and take you along on the journey!

Wishing you an amazing month ahead, thanks for being part of my journey and following along and I look forward to connecting with you. 💖

I was blown away when Nancy @artstudioforchildren showcased her strength and tenacity with her very own boxing gloves (how amazing are they?!) at her branding photoshoot. 📸🥊

I couldn’t wait to learn more about the story behind it all 🎉

This is what happens when you showcase your authentic self and sprinkle in that real deal salt into your brand. 🧂

It results in genuine intrigue, connect, trust that is memorable and leaves a lasting impression 💖

Now who is curious to know how many K.O.’s Nancy has under her belt? 😉😉😉
