Ridiculously Happy Ppl
About This Show
I'm Sophia Lemon, and I photograph ridiculously happy people, love baseball, and consume loose leaf tea like it's going out of style.
This show is for you, the type of ridiculously happy person I love to work with. Together we are going to step out of our discomfort, self doubt, and self consciousness, and embrace the natural joy that can be found in our lives each day. Because happiness isn’t found in cars and vacation homes.
My passion is found in self love and self care, and I am heavily influenced by health and productivity. In fact, once upon a time I thought I wasn’t photogenic, and I find many of my clients think the same thing. But I've come to learn it's not about how much makeup you wear or the size of your waist that makes you look good in photos. It's that true sense of happiness with ones self.
That's what this show is about. It's 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 acutely aware of that fact!
Pop me in your ears and listen for insight into living your fabulous life the way you've always dreamed.

15 / Smartphone Photography Tricks: 5 Tips For Improving Your Photos
I’m willing to bet that you have a smartphone with a camera built into it. Yet I hear from so many people that they want to invest in a camera so that they can take better photos. But here is what I tell everyone I mentor in photography: the equipment doesn’t make the photographer. In reality, you can take better photos with your smartphone by picking up a few easy photography tricks. And they won’t cost you a dime! Choose Your Smartphone I recently had a conversation with Craig from Africa 4 Canadians about this very idea. Craig hooks up Canadians with spectacular trips to Africa. We were talking about how to get better photos on these adventures, and of course I recommended that his clients use their phones or the equipment they already have rather than investing in a new rig. Here’s why: It’s far too easy to spend your entire trip staring at the back of your camera and fiddling with your equipment. Also, if you want to use that equipment well, you’ll need a lot of it and a lot of training and practice to use it. It’s easy to spend $5,000 to $7,500 on equipment for an amazing trip like this. In truth, it won’t enhance your trip, but in stead put a barrier between you and all the amazing things going on around you. Especially in every-day life, I find that many people spend too much time trying to set up a scene rather than enjoying the moment in front of them. Moms fiddle with props while their toddlers lose interest and teens take 20 selfies trying to get the exact right angle. Even I sometimes let my hot chocolate with a mound of whipped cream go cold as I try to get the most romantic, drool-worthy shot when I could just drink the dang thing, already! I talked about this a bit in my episode on what camera is the right camera for you. The answer? The camera you have right now. So how can you take better photos using just your smartphone? Here are my 5 ridiculously easy tips. These aren’t secrets or overly complicated. I swear you can do these things without having “the eye” or “natural talent.” If you use them well, though, your family and friends just might think you do. 1. Look for More Light It might seem like there’s plenty of light indoors with all of your lights on, but the truth is that your camera doesn’t work exact
