i’m marla lisman and i’m the photographer behind big shots photography.  here’s the 411 about me.

  • after graduating from ohio state (GO BUCKS)  with a degree in advertising and getting my masters in education from xavier, i decided i’d rather be a photographer. college money well spent! LOL!
  • photography is more than a job to me.  photography is my passion and my creative outlet rolled into one.  whether i’m on a shoot, working at my computer or meeting with clients i always think of how lucky i am.  i still can’t believe i get to do what i love and love what i do.
  • i’ve had the same group of friends for umpteen years with whom i laugh so hard I cry.  some of them are even from high school, so keep in touch with each other!
  • during my “me” time, I love being with my family.  we play lots of games.  come by on a weeknight when the weather is nice and you’ll probably find us outside playing four square.
  • my hubby hates that I write in lower case letters all of the time.  but it’s so much fun!
  • i love taking long walks, eating at chipolte, dilly deli & korea house and watching romantic comedies at the mariemont or esquire theatres.  if you see me, say “hi”!
  • i also enjoy shopping, tasting the free samples at costco, chilling out on facebook, playing with my iphone, and snuggling up with a good book.
  • life is good.
  • oh, and i have the BEST senior clients in the city (you thought i forgot you???).  you let me do what i do best and I let you do what you do best.  i shoot with my blend of creativity and sass and you just look good and have fun being the ROCK STARS you are!

if you want to know more about me, just ask.  i love taking the time to get to know you and hope you will enjoy getting to know me too.
