Sophia Lemon

Business Owner/Photographer, Photography for Ridiculously Happy People in Collingwood Canada

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. This is what makes me ridiculously happy. But once upon a time I thought I wasn’t photogenic, and I find many of my clients think the same thing. Then I realized that no amount of dieting, makeup, or hairspray makes me look better than I do when I’m laughing hysterically. And so I’ve made it my goal to help my clients and the people around me to see themselves the way their family and friends do: a genuinely, ridiculously happy, and loved person.

Ridiculously Happy Love Stories

I never met my mother’s parents. They both passed before I was born. But thanks to many photographs, I can put faces to the stories my mother has told me. That’s what this presentation is about. I’ll be sharing a selection of super simple love stories that will never be told in the movies. These are the, behind-the-scenes moments that stick out to the people I work with. The bits and pieces that outsider might gloss over, but that mean everything to the people living the moment.

More Than Meets the Eye

BY SOPHIA LEMON
@ VOL 2 ON APR 11, 2019

I recently had the pleasure of volunteering on a very special project with the Alzheimer Society of Grey-Bruce. The More Than Meets the Eye series features 10 portraits of people living with dementia and highlights notable stories from their lives well lived.

This presentation is all about my experience in photographing the participants, working with them and their care partners, hearing their stories. I’ll share more about how this project changed how I see and speak about people living with dementia, and how the project aims to help others see how there is much more to the participants and people like them.
