It’s time you were SEEN.
Allowing yourself to be seen takes effort, but it’s not a mystery. In fact, there are tried-and-true strategies drawn from psychology, therapy and activism.
It’s time you were seen.
Hi there! I’m Lindley (pronounced LIN-lee, she/her) and I create artwork that celebrates the unique beauty of bodies that fall outside conventional “beauty” standards.
I’m a photographer, author, cat mom, entrepreneur, musician and activist.
I reject the concept that fat people are only beautiful when our bodies look as close as possible to thin people’s. The full moon is lovely on her own, not because she slightly resembles a crescent moon.
What I do
I talk about the systems that make us feel bad about our bodies & help people reclaim their power through photographs.
That means fighting weight stigma by giving people in large bodies a safe place to explore how their bodies look on camera and by increasing the representation of fat bodies in photography, advertising, fine art and the world at large.
I live outside Seattle, WA with my spouse, feline overlord Blue, embarrassingly large washi tape collection and houseplant jungle.

“I hired Lindley as an equity reader to review my book from a HAES/fat liberation lens. She was fantastic to work with and highly knowledgeable, she helped me make my book as inclusive and equitable as possible. I definitely recommend working with her!”
Alissa Rumsey, Author
“Lindley is amazing as a person and professional. If you’re a provider and serious about HAES and fat acceptance, especially if you’re in a smaller body, Lindley’s consulting work is a must! She’s got lived experience in a bigger body, knows her stuff when it comes to content and copy editing, and is professional, honest, and friendly. With her support my resource went from okay to amazingly helpful. Highly recommend!”
Shelly Najjar, Seattle, WA
” I got to do an incredible photo session with Lindley. I needed a variety of looks including headshots and athletic action shots for a professional collaboration. Lindley chose locations, poses, and shots that gave me what I needed and much more. Not only that, but my shoot went beyond body-positive to being body-affirming and body-celebrating. It allowed me to get incredible shots that I never could have taken if I was having to deal with a photographer who was uncomfortable with fat bodies. I cannot recommend Lindley enough!!”

“Do it. If you’ve ever felt you were too flawed to be beautiful, you will be delightfully surprised. Everyone should experience this at least once.”
Ms. S, Seattle, WA
“I was lucky enough to spend some time with Lindley for a boudoir photo session and had the BEST experience! Lindley was unbelievably kind, warm, and immediately eased any fears | came into the session with. I left the session feeling empowered and celebrated… and the photos turned out BEYOND STUNNING! I would highly recommend working with Lindley for any of your photo needs. The way she photographs larger bodies is truly magical.”
