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 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

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.

» Personalized portrait session. A custom 60- or 90-minute portrait photography experience. (Or go for a magical all-day adventure session!)

» 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.

» Private shoot location. The backdrop of your portrait shoot is a beautiful private home or outdoor location.

Reclaim Your Beauty

Lindley Ashline, body positive and fat positive photographer

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.

I’m both body positive and fat positive and I’m a proud NAAFA member. You can find out more about me and Sweet Amaranth over on my About page.
