"Don't wait for extraordinary opportunities, seize common occasions and make them great."." – Orison Swett Marden
Hi there! I’m Liz Sparling of Cherrybird Photography. All of my life I have considered myself a creative. But it didn’t occur to me that photography would be something that would consume me until I followed a few dead end career choices. I majored in all things science in school, dropped out of a Master’s program for molecular biology, and even switched gears to become a labor and delivery RN for 5 years. But something was always missing. I tried anything and everything to fill my creative void. I sold hand painted stationery, large scale custom acrylic paintings, and even dabbled in cake making and website creation. It wasn’t until I had my first baby in 2014 that I picked up a DSLR and taught myself everything I could to use it. Then I found what I had been missing. I LOVED and still love photography. It makes my heart sing and dance to create art from other families’ memories.
