    Amazing experience with Pictonat Photography. Nathalie is a sweetheart and so talented at capturing those moments you want to remember forever, plus she was so patient with my toddler. Cannot say enough good things about her and will definitely be using her for more photoshoots in the future.

    Jae S. AvatarJae S.

    Nathalie shot on-location for an event I was hosting recently. She got a bunch of fantastic action/candid shots, as well as some lovely ones that were more portrait style. She's also very warm and easy to work with. I'm so grateful we had her to capture the day!

    Claudia B. AvatarClaudia B.

    Natalie is a wonderfully gifted photographer who is skilled at capturing the love in families and takes stunning baby photos. We couldnt be more pleased with our photos.

  • Lauren R. AvatarLauren R.

    In February 2018 we used Pictonat Photography for our newborn photoshoot and I couldn't be happier with the results. Nathalie was amazing with my one week old baby and perfectly captured our new little family including my dog! I highly recommend Pictonat Photography and will definitely be using her services again in the future!

    Brayden D. AvatarBrayden D.

    Nathalie, I saw the pictures of my daughters bridal shower today for the first time. I was ecstatic to see how amazing the pictures came out. But then again I had no doubt you would. You captured everything so beautifully and I can't thank you enough. You have such a natural talent. Everything and everyone looked great in each of the photos. You we're not only a hired photographer for the day, you were a true friend who in the preparation of the day even offered a helping hand. What more can we have asked for. Your the real deal. You were there to capture both my grandsons's christenings and now my daughter's wedding. Love all the photos you put together for us. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. These photos will be forever cherished, today, tomorrow and always.

    Kostas F. AvatarKostas F.

    We met with Nathalie for our Christmas photo shoot, and she was great. She took fantastic photo's of our family, and was very quick with her turn around. I would (and have) recommended her to others. Thank you Nathalie.

  • Dawn C. AvatarDawn C.

    We had the best experience with Nathalie! She helped make some amazing memories for our daughter's first birthday! I've been recommending her non-stop! I cannot say enough about what a fabulous experience we had! Her studio sets were gorgeous and her vision is impeccable! I am looking forward to our next sessions with her for many years to come (she is so wonderful to work with!) Truly we could not say enough about how gorgeous the pics turned out!! Thank you so much for the beautiful memories, Nat!!!!!!

    Annabel K. AvatarAnnabel K.

    Nathalie took fantastic flat lay pictures of our products for us and we had a blast at the photo session. She is really great to work with and we love her shots! Thank you Nathalie

    Dee S. AvatarDee S.

    Our experience with Nat was wonderful! All of the thoughtful touches before, during, and after the shoot made my family comfortable and happy. She got amazing photos of us and we will definitely have more shoots with her in the future.

  • Susan K. AvatarSusan K.

    I highly recommend Pictonat photography. Nathalie took our family holiday photos and new born pictures of our second child. We are so happy with how the pictures turned out. Not only is she talented at what she does, she is so nice and made it a fun and comfortable experience for my family. She was also really good with my toddler and new born, which made the photoshoot go extra smooth. I love her style and especially love her newborn photos, she has lots of cute props for babies and is creative with her shots. I can tell she loves kids, it really shows through her photos. I will definitely use her again for future family photos.

    Sab R. AvatarSab R.

    positive review  Nathalie was amazing to work with. She was patient and very sweet with my newborn and two year old. Her studio was lovely and very accommodating. I highly recommend her as a photographer to capture precious family moments.

    David S. AvatarDavid S.

    What a awesome experience. Very professional, would highly recommend!

  • Felicia H. AvatarFelicia H.

    I enjoyed working with Nathalie. I hated taking photos of myself hence there hasn't really been any photos with my 14 months old and me. When I felt that this might be something that I will regret later, Nathalie came to rescue. Nathalie is easy going and made the experience really easy. When I didn't know how to pose, she gave suggestions and she also captured all the in between moments. The mother's day photos turned out to be wonderful that we will also cherish.

    Katherine C. AvatarKatherine C.

    Nathalie is beyond amazing! I have had a few sessions with her and I don't know how she does it, but she is able to capture the best expressions from my kids even though they are usually breaking down and throwing a tantrum during the photo shoot (6 months and 2 years old). She is so patient and relaxed that the sessions are always fun and enjoyable instead of stressful. Her backgrounds and props are very beautiful too. She has a very good eye for what looks good in photos. If you go with her you won't be disappointed!

    Allison M. AvatarAllison M.

    Nathalie is amazing! I had such a great shoot with her and my 9 month old. She made us both super comfortable and it just felt so natural and fun. The photos turned out so well and she perfectly captured everything I was going for. So thrilled! Highly recommend 🙂

  • Alisa B. AvatarAlisa B.

    I am so grateful to Nathalie for making capturing memories of a very special family time easy, stress-free and joyful. I knew she had a talent for working with young families, but she stepped up to the challenge of working with teens and pre-teens, a large extended family, and one very stressed-out mom too. The stunning previews we received today were beyond what I'd hoped for.

    Melissa S. AvatarMelissa S.

    Nathalie did such an amazing job with our newborn's photos. We are so happy with how the photos turned out! They are so beautiful. The day of the photoshoot was actually relaxing for us parents. She was amazing with our 8 day old. I highly recommend the newborn session with Nathalie. Thank you so much for the memories 🙂

    Demetra D. AvatarDemetra D.

    I hired Nathalie as my photographer for my branding photoshoot. From the very beginning, I knew I was in excellent hands. Nathalie has incredible attention to detail, is very organized and is a pleasure to work with. Her entire process is well thought-out and ensures that her clients maximize their time while on set. I felt prepared and at ease going into my shoot because I had a detailed schedule and a vision of what we would create together in our session. The photos look amazing! Nathalie truly understood my vision and captured wonderful candid shots as well. I look forward to collaborating with her again in the future!

  • Rebecca B. AvatarRebecca B.

    I couldn't be happier with the photos and service that Nathalie provides! She is kind, patient, creative, and has such a great eye for getting "the shot". My 3 year old daughter's personality always comes out when Nathalie photographs her and I'm always so happy with the results! She beautifully captured belly bump in month 7 of my pregnancy and most recently, my new family of 4 in a fresh 48 session. I recommend Pictonat wholeheartedly to anybody who wants great family photos and memories that last.

    positive review  Nathalie made everything so comfortable when I came to her studio to shoot my maternity photos. She had a great personality and tons of maternity dresses to chose from so that I didn't have to be stressed to pack my own outfits that would flatter my baby bump. Keep in mind I was only 22 weeks along so I am so excited to book time with her again when I am at the home-stretch and my belly has grown! Thank you for everything and see you soon 🙂

  • Jennifer S. AvatarJennifer S.

    I absolutely loved working with Nathalie at my recent workshop. She has a special gift of making you feel at ease while you are posing for the perfect shot. I’m not comfortable in front of a still camera, but somehow she managed to keep the conversation flowing and I was able to loosen up. She captured so many beautiful images that I can use for my website, marketing material and beyond. I highly recommend working with her if you want gorgeous photos that capture your authentic self.

    Christina L. AvatarChristina L.

    Let me just start off with WOW. Nathalie did such an amazing job bringing all my random visions to life for my daughter's first cake smash! The vibrant colours, different backdrops, attention to details, every item had a personal touch to it. It made us really feel like it was all about our little girl. From the moment we walked in, we were greeted by a sign "Welcome to Mackenzie's Cake Smash". Her decor and backdrops complimented the birthday outfit perfectly. She incorporated my daughter's favourite toy and her donut themed party to the cake smash. Everything was perfect.. except for the crying birthday girl lol .. Nathalie did an amazing job working with my difficult child and even got her to smile! 🙂 Her patience with her (and us) was simply refreshing. She made us feel right at home and we couldn't be happier. Thank you for capturing this amazing moment for us and yes, definitely highly recommended!

    Claudia A. AvatarClaudia A.

    Lately, every time I see a website with amazing personal photos and ask who is the photographer, its you! You work captures each person personality and their bran. Next time I need to redu my website or have any photographs taken you are my go to person.

  • Kate S. AvatarKate S.

    My family did a mini Easter/mother’s day session with Nathalie and we were so happy with the photos. She was extremely patient and experienced with photographing my toddler and she able to catch some great moments.

    Lianne K. AvatarLianne K.

    Working with Nathalie of Pictonat was an amazing experience! She is the perfect combination of professional and fun, engaging and patient. Her Holiday set was so creative and beautiful, and she really gave my kids room to play and be themselves. We all had a great time and would highly recommend her to anyone!

    Angela K. AvatarAngela K.

    We chose Pictonat Photography this year for our holiday photos and it was a great experience! Nathalie was very professional but also understanding as she is also a mom. My daughter developed this odd rash at the last minute and I had to reschedule. Nathalie was also great with my girls. They have previously exasperated many professional photographers and hate taking photos but with Nathalie they had a great time and were all smiles and....cooperative! We will definitely be using Nathalie again.

    trinette s. Avatartrinette s.

    Beautiful experience with Nathalie during our maternity session. We were welcomed with warmth and comfortable during the shoot. Satisfied with the milk bath and photos proved justice.

  • Ana P. AvatarAna P.

    I can't say enough good things about my experience with Nathalie. She is such a sweetheart with the patience of a saint (a must have when you are photographing a toddler) her studio is beautiful and the pictures of my mom, son and I are even more better than I could have ever hoped for.

    Maria V. AvatarMaria V.

    I have worked with Nathalie on several photo shoots (I'm a makeup artist) and have had my family photographed by her and my experience is the same every time I'm around her - simply wonderful. Nathalie is professional, organized, warm and friendly and makes her clients truly feel at ease. She's a talented photographer. Her photos are clean and airy with a perfect balance of light. She thinks through every detail, for example, colours that work well for props and for her clients. I would strongly recommend hiring Nathalie for your next family shoot or branding shoot for your business! She's one of a kind!

    matt c. Avatarmatt c.

    We’ve had three family sessions with Nathalie. Each time, she has been patient and warm. She makes our child (and us) feel comfortable. We love the shots she gets —great composition and natural smiles. Natalie has lots of ideas for poses, and a variety of chairs, etc. Highly recommended!

    My toddlers were so happy that they wouldn't leave her house because they wanted to play. We got family photos, ones for my business, head shots for Linkedin, ones with my partner and I all in half an hour. I recommend her!!

    Sarah R. AvatarSarah R.

    I've been looking for a brand photographer and started by looking at photos of people I know whose images are wonderful- and guess what? It turns out that a lot of them are from Pictonat Photography! I will definitely be bookmarking Nathalie's site for when I'm doing my next branded photo shoot.

    Nathalie is easy and a pleasure to work with, she made us feel very comfortable. She was well prepared with many cute props and backdrops, down to the little details. You know you're in good hands when someone cares enough to go above and beyond. I've worked with Nathalie on more than three occasions and will definitely book her again for all future events.

  • Dominica L. AvatarDominica L.

    Natalie is such a pleasure to work with! She made the shoot so much fun for my boys that they didn't want to leave. Her studio is beautiful and the shots she captured are spectacular!! I will definitely be back again Pictonat!!

    Shannon C. AvatarShannon C.

    Nathalie was simply amazing. This was our family’s very first photo shoot and my son was teething and not in the best of spirits. On top of things, I was a sleep deprived mom and worried we wouldn’t get any good shots. Nathalie was so calm and confident during the session and managed to capture several beautiful shots despite the circumstances and we are more than pleased with the photos we got. It takes true talent to be able to work with little ones and she definitely has it! Thanks again Nathalie 😊

    Janneke H. AvatarJanneke H.

    Nathalie helped me out with organizing a surprise fab 40 cake smash. Both the experience and the photos where amazing. Great memories where created this day. Thank you so much for all your help!

  • Mee-Lee R. AvatarMee-Lee R.

    I recently had Pictonat Photography capture my maternity shots and then my newborn shots. I also had family photos with my in-laws done a few months after the newborn shots so we have had a lot of work done with Nathalie. All my experiences have been wonderful. Nathalie is amazing with her creativity and she was also so flexible working with unexpected situations, especially with kids. All of us enjoyed the experiences and look forward to working again with her to capture more special occasions!

    I cannot begin to express my happiness having Nathalie take my baby bump pics!!! I didn’t know what to expect but Nathalie made the entire session not only fun but made me feel comfortable and beautiful with every picture she took. She was very attentive to make sure every detail was perfect down to the small hair sticking out on top of my head! Also the added. Nathalie also took my family photos and they turned out amazing!!! She was so patient with all of us especially my little one 🙂 She captures everything so naturally and beautifully. You have fun and each picture shows it! 100% best photographer ever!!!!

  • Polina T. AvatarPolina T.

    positive review  It’s always an amazing experience from beginning to the end with Nathalie. She provides helpful tips on what to expect and how to prep for a session with small kids and her process is so organic that it makes the whole experience fun and memorable. She has a great eye and I always wait with anticipation to see the final result. Seeing photos for the first time brings me so much joy! I like multiple sessions to capture various milestones and our kids growing up. It’s so much fun to look back and see how they’ve changed. Nathalie is always creative with her props and themes, and the latest one “Adventure Awaits” is absolutely magical!

    Lauren C. AvatarLauren C.

    positive review  Highly Recommend! This was our 3rd shoot and we love all the photos we have by Pictonat!

    Amelia R. AvatarAmelia R.

    positive review  Nathalie is so talented. The headshots brand photos are so beautiful and capture what I feel is my essence. I don't think I could have asked for anything better. I highly recommend her work!

  • Lee M. AvatarLee M.

    Nathalie has been a pleasure to work with. She is professional, efficient and is also a really nice person. My five year old daughter had a great time with Nathalie during our session which resulted in some really great photos of her. I am so grateful to Nathalie for the beautiful family photos she captured and can't stop myself from looking at them over and over again. My family is looking forward to working with Nathalie in the future.

    Tina L. AvatarTina L.

    We had a lovely experience at Nathalie's beautiful studio! She was engaging and fun which made the photoshoot run so smoothly, which probably wasn't easy with a 16 month old on site haha. Thanks again Nathalie. We are in love with how they turned out

    Danielle L. AvatarDanielle L.

    Nathalie was a pleasure to work with. She works really well with the kids, and knows just how to get them to smile. I signed up for her mini shoot and was amazed by all the great shots she captured of us in just 15mins. Thank you

I'm tickled pink with excitement to share a peek at a Brand Builder photo session with the lovely @deeboswell_buck - a digital marketer who can whip any LinkedIn profile into shape! (She sure helped me up-level my LinkedIn presence!)⁠

LinkedIn is the largest business oriented networking platform for professionals with over 500 million members (wow!). It is a great platform for establishing solid connections and for showcasing your knowledge, credibility and leadership expertise.⁠

To be honest, I started off using LinkedIn as my 'online resume' and that's all I thought it would be. However there's so much more to it (Thanks Dee for showing me the ropes)... and if you're on LinkedIn, be sure to connect with me at Nathalie Amlani. Are you on LinkedIn? Raise your hand if you're on LinkedIn or want to be 🙋🏻‍♀️ and let's connect! ⁠

Meet Gillian the Director of @mommyconnections_mto - love the intro post below! 😀

#Repost @mommyconnections_mto

Hi there! 👋🏼

It's been awhile since I've introduced myself. I’m Gillian, the Director of Mommy Connections Midtown Toronto! I find joy in helping mamas find their village of support in their local community.

If you’re new to following my feed, welcome and thanks for joining! Whether you’re in midtown Toronto or following from somewhere else, I’m glad you’re here!

I didn’t know the value of Moms groups when I had my daughter in 2015 and the postpartum depression I experienced was directly triggered because of the isolation I felt. When I was pregnant with my son in 2019 I made a promise to myself to join EVERYTHING and take every opportunity. I was invited to the Mommy Connections Prenatal event and from then on I was hooked! Though Covid hit while my little guy was only 3.5 months old and we were enrolled in in-person Mom & Baby sessions, I quickly realized the value of virtual sessions once we participated in them.

With lockdowns and helping my daughter with remote learning plus caring for an infant, it helped SO much to have my weekly Mommy Connections group to participate in. I still chat daily with the moms I met and they are a vital part of my experience this time around.

Here are some things you might not know about me:

🍎 I am an elementary teacher by trade (my first assignment ever was grade one French immersion and I’m still in touch with many of the families of my students!)

🎭 I used to dream of being on Broadway and started acting in musicals when I was 9 years old (and continued until I was 18!) 

🌎 The furthest I’ve ever travelled was to India. It blew my mind! We visited Dharavi in Mumbai (the biggest slum in Asia) and it was one of the most beautiful communities I’ve ever witnessed. I wanted to teach there and still hope to return one day!

Drop me a 👋🏼 in the comments and say hi!

🌻 Happy Mother's Day! Sending so much love and joy on this day of the year that honours all the mother figures in our lives. ⁠

Here's a peek into my real-life #momlife. The fresh air and sunshine today brought smiles... the moment on our walk couldn't be more perfect for the capture.⁠

I am grateful to be mom...the moment they entered the world... my dream to become an entrepreneur was also born. Pictonat is as old as my kids!⁠

However you're celebrating today, I hope today is full of joy and laughter and perhaps a fun Mother's Day selfie or screen capture with your loved ones too to remember the day too (you don't regret it!)! I am celebrating with putting my feet up to relax and not cook today.. how about you?⁠

"You are in charge of your own happiness"... powerful reminder from the Oracle card pulled by @risewellnesscollective in this morning's Client Appreciation event.⁠

This morning I hosted a first ever Client Appreciation experience. I like to think of it as an experience versus an event because my vision and desire was to really give a transformational experience. ⁠

In unexpected times like this, it can be easy to lose touch with ourselves, to feel a heaviness, impacting how we show up in our business and life... losing touch with JOY. I called upon the @risewellnesscollective to lead the group through the uplifting experience of getting 'Home to Harmony'.⁠

Today's experience looked a bit like this...⁠
... guidance⁠
... words of wisdom⁠
... soulful journalling⁠
... meditation ⁠
... visualization ⁠
... sharing in circle⁠

We closed the circle with feelings of lightness, motivation, determination and coming home to self. Thank you Nadia and Jillian of @risewellnesscollective for leading the group through this powerful and deep practice and reminding us to.. "Choose to walk through the door for you."⁠

I never imagined I would be where I am today when I started Pictonat almost five years ago. I am doing what feels so aligned... connecting with and elevating the hearts and brands of entrepreneurs. And I am so grateful for the trust and opportunity to do so. Sending appreciation to everyone who I have met on this journey. Thank you, thank you. 🙏🏽⁠
