Why the long face?
…Wait. You do know you’re beautiful, right? You don’t need to lose ten pounds or join a gym or get a haircut or start using wrinkle cream to be perfect and precious and worthy of love. It’s not too late for you to be beautiful, either. You’re already so beautiful, right this very moment, just as you are.
Yeah, you. Even if it’s 3 a.m. and you’re eating Cheetos in your undies. Hey, I don’t know your life. But I can see your spark shining right this very minute, and my talent is drawing out that beauty to let you see your own self in a new way.
A body positive lifestyle portrait session is right for you if:
» You’re not sure you’re pretty enough to be photographed
» You want to feel comfortable in your body
» You’re ready to be the star in your own life
I practice a completely judgment-free approach that views every body with honesty, compassion and respect. This isn’t your mainstream photography experience: There’s no extreme posing to make your body look unlike its natural form, no heavy retouching, no shame around flyaway hair or fat rolls. This is a safe and LGBTQIAP+-affirming place for you to explore your body’s beauty.
That all sounds very serious, but the truth is we have a lot of fun! It’s amazing how freeing a complete lack of expectations can be. From the most low-key of short hangout-style sessions to a full day of rock-star treatment, you’re among friends and allies here. My sessions are laid back, warm and friendly, and self-care always comes first.

LOVE FOR LIFE
Love for Life » $1,000
It’s your life. Will you remember it? All too often, we’re behind the camera or hiding awkwardly at the back of group photos, helping create treasured memories for our loved ones, but too ashamed of our own bodies to be truly present. It’s time to claim your own treasured moments. As you move through your own journey towards loving the skin you’re in, Love for Life captures each step forward. Join me for a free 60-minute boudoir or lifestyle portrait session up to once per year for the next 10 years, and celebrate how far you go.
SMALL BUSINESS BRANDING
Small Business Branding Sessions » $600
Sweet Amaranth small business branding sessions are a blend of body positive headshots, portraits and product/commercial photography. You and I sit down and figure out exactly what you need to make your social media profiles, website and printed materials sing, then spend about 90 minutes filling in the gaps. Includes consultation, up to one hour of staging time, photo shoot and digital delivery of 15 edited images of your choice.
Turnaround time is approximately 15 business days from session to final delivery of digitals. Additional high-resolution digital images can be purchased for $20 each.
Headshot Session » $250
Headshots. Almost everyone needs them, and they’re not usually much fun to get. Let’s change it with a truly positive experience. Get the photos you need for your career or business — all in a friendly, cheerful and supportive environment that welcomes your body just the way it is. All genders, orientations, ethnicities, body sizes, levels of ability/disability, and ages are welcome!
These images are great for professional business cards and networking sites like LinkedIn as well as social media profile images (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.).
Includes consultation, hair and make up touchups, photo shoot and digital delivery of two edited, high-resolution digital images of your choice. Your session with me lasts about a half hour. You may purchase additional images for $20 each.
Headshot sessions are generally offered at the semi-annual Sweet Amaranth Headshot Days. Rush sessions: To be scheduled at your convenience rather than at the next headshot day, add $100 to the session price.
Gift Session » $400
Give your special person the gift of seeing themselves in a new light with a Sweet Amaranth boudoir or lifestyle portrait session. Includes a pretty, physical boxed gift that you’ll receive in the mail to give your sweetie — no handing over just a flimsy gift certificate.
Your gift will also include professional hair and makeup touchups, half-hour photo shoot, reveal, five high-resolution images and two portable mini albums (one for each of you). Leave the design to me; I’ll design and deliver beautiful custom albums that will last for decades.
