Quick! Q&A With Busy Naperville Mom Extraordinaire


I had the pleasure of photographing Lisa and her gorgeous family last fall.  Her three children are a photographer’s dream!  Sweet, polite and really good in front of the camera….it was a joy to capture them discovering and having fun in the forest.

Lisa is quite dynamic, a busy mom of three juggling several things all at once!  I know it’s not atypical for us women to do so many things all at one time but Lisa Z. has it down in spades!   Welcome to the Marmalade Photography 15 minutes of fame (ha, I crack myself up) Q&A.


Naperville Family Photographer

My name:  Lisa Zarkin

My business:  PlanSmart Financial Services (Certified Financial Planner) for 16 years; owner of four Cookie Cutters Salons for the past four years.  One in Geneva and three others in the Naperville area.  And Zoo On Yoo Hair and Body Care for Kidz for 1 year.  Mom to 3 kids.  

I live: in Naperville, IL

A little factoid about me that not many people know about:  I’m taking Tae Kwan Do and am currently a Brown Belt.

One of my fave foods:  cheese pizza

One of my fave brands of kids clothes:  Gymboree for Girls (check out the link I found for girls stuff, it’s soooo stinking adorable!)   & Tommy Hilfiger for Boys

Where I like to shop for grown up clothesWhite House Black Market

When I indulge, I indulge in:  cheese pizza  (I think I’m noticing a trend!  🙂 )

My favorite image from my session with Marmalade Photography is….
