Hi there, I’m Lindley and I take stunning boudoir photographs of people of all genders, especially people with types of bodies that aren’t seen in the media very often. (Think plus-size women, women over 50, people of color, people in the LGBTQIAP+ community, and folks with visible disabilities.)
I make every person who works with me feel welcomed, special, safe and appreciated. My studio is a safe place for every human body. My foundation is in fat acceptance, body positivity and respect, and inclusivity.
Give your special person the gift of seeing themselves in a sweet, saucy new light with a Sweet Amaranth boudoir session.
Your gift to your special person will include:
> A pretty, physical boxed gift that you’ll receive in the mail to give them — no handing over just a flimsy gift certificate
> A mini email e-course before their session (initiated by them once they receive their gift — no spoiling the surprise!) to ease any anxiety and fill them in on what to expect
> Professional hair and makeup touchups
> A 30-minute boudoir photography session at my studio in Renton, WA, USA
> A private, candlelit reveal session for you and your sweetie
> Five fully-edited, lightly retouched, high-res digital images of client’s choice
> Two Mini Black Book albums with images of client’s choice (one to keep and one to share)
What people are saying:
“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, Kent, WA
How did you feel when you saw the finished images? “It look my breath away. For once. I did not look at it critically and tear myself down. I actually saw a little of what you see through your camera lens.” Ms. G, Maple Valley, WA
“I love the photos and had a wonderful time! I’m usually extremely self-conscious and critical of myself in pictures. If you have self-image issues and usually feel uncomfortable with professional makeup/photography, Sweet Amaranth is the place to go.” Ms. L, Newcastle, WA
“Lindley is the most body positive person I’ve met. She *gets* it and listens, and works with you as you are and helps you look as good as you feel.” Ms. D, Federal Way, WA
The nifty thing about this gift is that it’s set up to be super easy to give. No worries about scheduling a session before the holiday. On the big day, you just present your gift, which includes instructions for your special person on getting started. Then I get them scheduled for their session. No fuss, no muss.
How makeup and hair touchups work
You arrive with your makeup and hair done to the best of your ability, and a professional makeup artist will enhance your look. This could include curling your hair, adding a smoky eye or sultry lip, etc.
This service is good for folks who identify as male or choose a more masculine appearance as well! Trust me — even small things like trimming eyebrows make a big difference.
I don’t keep a full wardrobe for clients (for cost and hygiene reasons), but I have a variety of fun accessories and props you’re welcome to browse and use.
Look and feel
My posing and shooting styles are quite feminine, so please expect that to be reflected in the session.
You’ll be able to purchase other products (more digital images, albums, etc.) at the reveal session if you like. Here’s a look at what else is available.
(You can totally get this package for yourself. I won’t tell anyone.)
