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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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 😊

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 <3

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.

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!

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!
