About Your Family Photoshoot

There are so many fun ways to capture a moment in time with your loved ones, such as annual family portrait sessions, an extended family session, a grandparents session, a sibling session, or a mommy and me session. Every moment is special!

Sessions take place in-studio or on-location and make for a wonderful gift for loved ones.

On this page, you will find a variety of resources on family and children photoshoots, as well as images from previous sessions. Have a look around and feel free to contact me if you have any questions!


Our Family Photoshoot Process



Before we take any photos of your children or family, we will discuss what you want from your images and your ideas for your session.


Photo Session

Sessions take place in the studio or on location. My goal is to capture your genuine personalities and love for one another.



I will go through every image from your session and custom-edit each lovely photo, highlighting all the smiles! 


Online Gallery

An online gallery of photo proofs is ready for viewing and selection within 2-3 weeks from your photoshoot date.

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 onsite. Thanks again, Nathalie. We are in love with how they turned out. - Tina

Relive the moment and emotion captured by printing your photos. Professional quality prints of your family pictures make the perfect gift for both yourself and loved ones to display on a gallery wall. Choose from a collection of beautiful keepsakes that serve as statement pieces to showcase your precious memories such as a coffee table book that will be sure to impress, or a framed standout frame that will provide the perfect accent to any wall or shelf. We take the time to deliver keepsakes that will bring joy to you and your loved ones and will last a lifetime.

Child Portraits

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! - Katherine
