I'm Ina,  an adventure chaser, extroverted introvert, and someone who believes in kindness and unicorns. I love exploring Ottawa, its surrounding areas and beyond, as well as camping with my family, drinking all the coffee, and dancing like no one’s watching. North Saplings Photography (NSP) is a passion project of mine. Capturing my family's adventures and creating magical composites is something that I look forward to everyday. Getting to know my clients and documenting their candid and playful moments is a cherry on top of the cake!!!

I'm so glad you are here!!!!

Welcome Friend!

It’s easy to tell you WHAT I do, but I think more importantly you should know the WHY behind it. WHY am I choosing to document your moments and WHY am I choosing to go above and beyond to deliver you an amazing experience as well.

Because photography is powerful; it captures precious moments of one’s life and make that memory last forever. Letting our family members see images from the past and present - allows them to feel more connected to their own story. In children, photographs of them boost their self-esteem! Imagery is what helps us deal with change too. And with time, family photos become family heirlooms.

I also trust my heart and work hard for you to have both: a great product and a wonderful service. Meeting a new person to take images of your family can feel awkward at first; that’s why I show up on social media and through my communications just the way I am, so you can feel at ease when finally meeting me in person. I also want you to think about your session as a fun day out, a little adventure, that in itself will create fun and new memories.

I value the moments that are real and raw. The moments that you cannot imagine not being able to relive, and that's why I'm here. So that you can relive those days, over and over.
