I became involved in photography through having to document scientific research samples for microscopical analysis. In plain English that means I take pictures of stuff under the microscope, otherwise known as photomicrography. I've spent years honing my photomicrography technique, and through the learning process of photographing things in this manner, I also became interested in regular photography to further challenge myself. I began taking pictures of friends, their children, their pets, and so on.

People really enjoyed the pictures I took for them, and through their encouragement I started Sparenga Photography to offer that same enjoyment to you.

My work has been published in local, national, and international publications. I am a member of Professional Photographers of America (PPA) as well as HeARTs Speak, an organization dedicated to artists who volunteer their abilities to help shelter animals find forever homes. I currently volunteer my services for several animal rescue organizations including ALIVE RescueOne Tail at a Time, and PAWS Chicago. I keep up with current trends in photography by regularly attending workshops and collaborating with fellow photographers. I also teach workshops on using DSLRs to photograph scientific samples as well as pets and people.
