Who Am I?!

THE DIRT ON ME

I wrote on the family piano as a child, I play a lot of baseball, I drink loose leaf tea like its going out of style, and it takes me about 5 minutes to change out of my ‘real clothes’ and into my sweatpants when I get home.

I am a soulpreneur on a mission to connect my clients with what brings them true happiness!

Why I Do What I Do

MY PASSIONS

My passion is found in self love and self care, and I am heavily influenced by health and productivity. You’ll find me saying, “I was listening to this podcast…” a lot, and spouting off things I’ve learned from people who are much smarter than me.

I get up extremely early, workout every morning, hike often, and I never take my phone into my bedroom. If you’re ever looking for me, you might find me at one of my favourites cafés, in my studio, or in my Collingwood office.

Love Is A Big Deal

MY MISSION

Once upon a time I thought I wasn’t photogenic, and I find many of my clients think the same thing.

It is my goal for you to look at the photos we create together and fall madly in love with yourself. This is not just about preserving memories, but about seeing yourself the way your family and friends do. You are a beautiful soul full of life and laughter, and you deserve to be reminded of that every day!

Ridiculously Happy Ppl

THE PODCAST

I totally get it! You’re busy, and you have no idea how to get started planning for photography. This show is for you! Handing the selfie stick over to a professional photographer can be scary, but it shouldn’t be difficult.

Living In The Real World

ALBUMS + ARTWORK

You live in the real world with four walls and a roof. You don’t live in Facebook. That is why I’m going to send you home with real life artwork. Because I don’t want you to forget what we create on a memory stick somewhere. I want you to love your photos forever.

TESTIMONIALS + REVIEWS

Marlee & Dan

My husband and I have had so much fun getting to know Sophia and working with her...She makes being in front of a camera very comfortable and even somehow natural and it really shows in the final product. She puts her clients first and looks after every little detail so the photos and sessions are wonderful, happy memories. We were certainly ridiculously happy after working with Sophia!

Meg & Dan

Working with Sophia was so fantastic, right from the initial meeting through to the after-wedding decision making regarding our album. Her enthusiasm, investment, and cheerfulness are unlimited, and her professionalism cannot be matched...She is not only a fantastic and talented photographer, but also an amazingly kind and thoughtful person who will go out of her way to make sure that you have the pictures you've dreamed of for your engagement and wedding.

McKee Family

Sophia was great to work with! She was accommodating, punctual and was open to our requests. Thanks Sophia!

Alicia & Ghislain

Sophia recently photographed our wedding in Collingwood. Her and her team did a fantastic job. Since we lived several hours away Sophia set up multiple meetings to keep us informed. She also insisted on having an engagement photo session, which was great! It gave us the chance to meet with her and get to know her style and vice versa...

Alzheimer Society of Grey Bruce

Since Sophia started photographing our fundraising events I've been spoiled with so many wonderful images to use in marketing for the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce. The hardest part used to be finding an image - now it's choosing between options.

Bethany & Adam

My husband Adam and I were very happy working with Sophia. She is incredibly reliable, she responded to our questions and concerns in a timely matter, and best of all she was super fun to work with.

Brenna & Jordan

Stop looking for a photographer and hire Sophia right now! We couldn't have imagined a better photographer for our engagement photos and wedding. Sophia worked with us to create a custom package, and was so responsive throughout the entire process. We kept saying we wished Sophia was in charge of everything for our wedding since she was so organized and professional. We will miss chatting with her on a regular basis.

Hair Body & Soul

Hair Body & Soul has had the pleasure of working with Sophia Lemon Photography on many occasions and we have never been disappointed. We are particularly happy with the headshots that she has provided for our website. Pleasing aesthetics is very important in our industry and Sophia continues to deliver top quality work. We highly recommend her.

Falls Family

Thank you Sophia. What started out as a simple photo shoot of my kids and me turned into a treasured artistic expression of us. Each time I walk by your work I am greeted by the perfectly captured smiles of my smalls: Ava and Sullivan. Am grateful for your help and creative talents. To anyone wanting to capture a unique expression of special moments in time I recommend you draw on Sophia's talents.

It's so important to me, as a business owner, that I remain passionate about my work. How do I do that? Well, by truly finding meaning in what I do. Sure, I document memories my clients will cherish for years to come, but my work has the power to do so much more than remind us of the past. Just this season I have worked with 3 couples struggling with serious life events. The first was Marlee and Dan, whose story I shared with DecisionWise.
