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. - Melissa

About Your Newborn Photoshoot
Welcome to the world, little one!
Newborn photos are a special memory of new life, capturing the first moments of baby's entrance into the world. Sessions can take place in-studio, at the place of birth, or in your home as a lifestyle session.
Fresh 48 newborn sessions are a lifestyle journalistic newborn session at the place of birth in the daytime within 24-48 hours of delivery. It may be at the hospital, birthing centre, or your home and focuses on capturing the first candid moments with baby in a fresh natural way. It differs from a traditional newborn session that is posed with props and lights.
Lifestyle newborn sessions take place in your home or at a studio rental and can occur when baby is up to 1-2 months old. The focus is on capturing the beautiful connection between the baby and loved ones in their natural environment. If you'd like to incorporate a styled/wrapped pose in the session, we can arrange for one look.
Please note that the posed newborn sesssions that are 2-3 hours with props are no longer offered because I no longer have my own studio space however I can incorporate a look into your lifestyle session on request or can refer you to my trusted colleagues.
On this page you will find a variety of resources for expecting parents and available newborn session packages, as well as images from past sessions. Feel free to look around and contact Nathalie if you have any questions!

We recommend booking your session during the second trimester to secure your spot as limited newborn sessions are offered each month.
Sessions can take place in-studio, at the place of birth, or in your home as a lifestyle session and is best taken in the early days/months.
I go through every image from your session and custom-edit each lovely photo, highlighting those tiny baby fingers and toes and your joyful smiles.
An online gallery of photo proofs will be ready for viewing and selection of images within 2-3 weeks after the date of your photoshoot.

I couldn't be happier with the photos and services 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 my belly bump in month seven of my pregnancy and most recently my new family of four in a fresh 48 session. I recommend Pictonat wholeheartedly to anybody who wants great family photos and memories that last. - Rebecca
