About

MY STORY

Hello, I am Nathalie.  I hold an MBA from the Rotman School of Management and am a Project Management Professional with over 15 years of experience in Financial Services. My passion for photography grew steadily and rapidly since completion of the Digital Photography certificate at George Brown College in 2010.  My inspiration for family photography continues to grow as I go through the joys of motherhood with my two kids.     

WHAT TO EXPECT

Fun and bright!  I have a passion for creativity.  Each session is customized to meet your vision and expectations. Tips will be provided on how to prepare for your session.  With young kids, not every session goes as planned and that's ok, anything goes and makes for great memories to look back on.  I strive to deliver a fun experience and timeless memories.

THE BUZZ – WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING

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!read more

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 :)read more

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!read more

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.read more

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.read more

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.read more

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.read more

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.read more
