“Lindley Ashline is a fantastic photographer! She made me feel comfortable and sexy as hell. For those who have said, ‘Oh, I’d love to have this done, but. . . ‘ No more buts except the one behind you. Call her and get them done. You won’t regret it.” » Ms. K

Reclaim Your Mirror
As a plus-size woman, I get how frustrating it can be to always feel like you’re the ugly one, the clumsy one, the one who just needs to buckle down and change herself so she can deserve to feel beautiful.
That’s why I’m channeling my 15 years of photography experience into creating stunningly beautiful photography of curvy, full-figured, plus size, and fat women and femmes as well as people of color and folks in the LGBTQIAP+ community. I have a natural gift for finding the unique beauty in every person and making you feel comfortable, safe and empowered. It’s time you felt as gorgeous as you are for a change.
We’re talking about a completely safe, private and body-positive environment. No judging, no fears, no worries. You’ll be guided through poses designed for people who are larger and/or have mobility challenges, so your finished photos are both flattering and the best representation of your beautiful body and spirit.
Your session includes:
» Personalized lifestyle portrait session. A custom 60- or 90-minute photography experience.
» Women on your side. For your safety and security, my on-site team is all female.
» One on one. Be photographed by an experienced and supportive female photographer.
» Advanced beauty retouching. I personally lightly retouch all images.
» Professional female hair & makeup artist. Choose to work with my professional makeup artist or use your own.
“You HAVE to meet Lindley, she is the BEST photographer in the world. She is super talented and makes you feel beautiful and totally at ease. She is AMAZING.” » Ms. G
Reclaim Your Beauty
A little about me:
I’m Lindley, pronounced LIN-lee. I’m a professional photographer who specializes in working with people of all ethnicities and genders, not just the ones whose bodies are likely to be seen in magazines and advertisements. I help women reclaim their gorgeous, their sexy, and their confident with stunning body-positive portrait and boudoir sessions.
I think every body on the planet is beautiful and worthy just as it exists today. That’s why I’m channeling my 15 years of photography experience into creating stunning portraits of non-mainstream bodies, particularly curvy and full-figured women. I work with people of all sizes, genders, orientations, ability levels, and ethnicities. I have a natural gift for finding the unique beauty in every person and making them feel comfortable, safe and empowered.
This kind of judgment-free approach is extraordinarily rare. In fact, I’m so committed to this approach that unlike most portrait photographers — who do heavy skin retouching and routinely make their clients look thinner by using tricks like the Photoshop ‘liquefy’ tool — the only retouching I do is light skin smoothing, very subtle blemish removal and a few tweaks to make clients’ eyes come alight in the final images.
I believe in representing women as they are today in my photography, while conforming just enough with current “beauty” standards that women using those photos in their personal and professional lives aren’t penalized by existing outside those standards. That means that I might do slightly heavier skin smoothing on a professional headshot than on a personal portrait, but I never remove permanent features like wrinkles or rolls.
You’ll look gorgeous and feel like a rockstar. You’ll see yourself in a new light.
You’ll come away with renewed self confidence and joy in your own body.
It’s time to reclaim your body.
“I have a hard time looking at myself, because in my head I look like I am still 18. Seeing myself as I am is a form of therapy, and these images were fun and still sassy, even though I look like a grown ass woman-which I am!- and they made me feel pretty.” » Ms. H
