About Lifestyle Photographer & Her Mission

A Beautiful Thing


I never met my mother’s parents. They both passed before I was born, but from the stories my mother has told me about them, I can imagine their personalities. And thanks to many (many) photographs like in their wedding album, I can put a face to their shenanigans playing out in my mind.

It’s true what people say. Photography plays a pivotal role in our lives. It reminds us of all that we have to be grateful for, and it speaks volumes of who we are and what we’re proud of when we’re not in the room to say it ourselves.

The Dirt On Me

About Sophia Lemon

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 you with what brings you true happiness! This is more than stellar photography. This is focusing in on your ridiculously happy lifestyle and letting it fill every empty canvas, nook, and cranny in your life.

Why I Do What I Do


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


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!

Living In The Real World


You live in the real world with four walls and a roof. Like my grandparents, 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, and pass them on to those who come after you.

After all, that is the end game of this whole experience. Don’t you agree?? Click the button to book your consultation!

I got some boudoir photos done through Sophia and it was an amazing experience! She made the process so easy and I felt so comfortable! And they turned out so much better than I thought they could! I could not recommend her enough for our wedding photography and the same goes for the boudoir photos—she is so amazing! Thank you Sophia! You really are an amazing photographer and wonderful person!

Chris & Theo

Beyond thrilled with the whole experience. Sophia was amazing to work with from start to finish. It was a lot of fun while taking the photo's and her ability to add and enhance to the fun made it that much better. The finished product was way beyond what I expected. The quality of the pictures and picture quality was amazing!!! The only difficult part is keeping how many prints to minimum, i feel I should give everyone I know prints as everyone who has seen the pictures are just as thrilled as I was. Thank you Sophia. I can't wait for the next session!!

Melissa & Zolt

I am super awkward when it comes to getting my photo taken, so a big THANK YOU goes out to Sophia Lemon for accepting this challenge. She was so much fun to work with and THANK GOD I will have her on my wedding day to keep me on track and looking ridiculously happy!

Danielle & Stephen

Since our wedding, she’s taken family photos, and most recently, boudoir maternity photos. Now there was a challenge! I asked her to give me 1 beautiful maternity photo despite feeling very not-beautiful with heartburn and swollen ankles etc. I thought she had her work cut out for her, but she somehow managed to give me 6 beautiful photos and make me have fun during the process! Thanks Sophia!!

Allie & Brady

I couldnt speak more highly of Sophia Lemon. Sophia captured our wedding day just as I imagined it to be. So pleased with her professionalism and keen eye for the big and small details! I will cherish my beautiful albums and memories forever. Thank you Sophia!

Camellia & Romel

Sophia was an absolute pleasure to work with! We were so impressed with the time she took to get to know us, our love story and how personalized she made the whole experience...Sophia was accommodating and flexible, always keeping our stress levels to a minimum with her laugh, positivity and calm manner. We highly recommend her services and definitely want her to be our wedding photographer!

Mary & Jordan

Sophia has photographed our engagement session so far. And we can’t wait for her to be a part of our wedding day!! Her relaxed demeanour, kindness and professionalism made our session so much easier as we were both quite anxious. We booked Sophia right away (a year ago!) and are getting married in September; she’s kept in contact with us and answered all e-mails/texts promptly which is very important for me!

Elena & Antonio

Sophia is wonderful! She is friendly, professional and extremely talented. She made us feel comfortable when meeting her for the first time. She is personable and amicable. It’s not the easiest thing to let yourself become vulnerable and pose for pictures especially if you’re not use to having your pictures taken. However she made capturing one of our most memorable days (proposal) very enjoyable and romantic despite the freezing end-of-December temperatures at Blue Mountain! Our pictures turned out so beautiful. The lighting was perfect and made both my fiancé and I glow.

The Carmichaels

We had a great time working with Sophia for some winter family photos! She was always available to answer questions, fun and easy-going to work with during the actual photo shoot, and has been very helpful in the follow-up choosing which photos to print. Would definitely recommend for whatever occasion you're looking at hiring a photographer for!
