⊱ ── {β‹…. About Lindley .β‹…} ── ⊰

Hi there! 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.

⊱ ── {β‹…. About Hair & Makeup Touchups .β‹…} ── ⊰

A professional makeup artist will be on site to help bring out your natural beauty for your photos. Hair and makeup assistance are encouraged for these sessions; the camera sees details much more finely than the human eye, and a knowledgeable hand and eye help tune your look to show best on camera. (And yes, this is a great idea for men and other folks who don’t identify as women as well! You’ll be able to choose the level of “look” you want.)

Touchups are *not* a full service; you arrive with your hair and makeup done to the best of your ability and the makeup artist will improve it (e.g., curling hair, adding eye makeup, adding false lashes that you provide). If you have questions about touchups or are interested in a full hair and makeup service, please get in touch and I’ll take care of you.

⊱ ── {β‹…. Who is Welcome .β‹…} ── ⊰

This event is open to, and a safe place for, people of all genders, abilities, ethnicities, orientations, body sizes and shapes, and the LGBTQIAP+ community. If you have needs or preferences related to allergies, logistics, seating, or other accessibility matters, just let me know and I’ll happily do my best to accommodate you in safety and comfort.

⊱ ── {β‹…. Accessibility .β‹…} ── ⊰

Because this event is held at my home studio, it isn’t wheelchair accessible, though if you’re able to make it up one half-flight of steps (with handrail) initially, the room where we’ll be taking photos is accessible. The bathroom requires one more half-flight of steps (with handrail). We have cats and are non-smokers.

Any refreshments offered will be labeled or have the packaging available, for those with allergens. If you have a particular food or chemical allergy you’d like me to avoid, just let me know at least a week in advance, please.

There’s plenty of seating, including armless chairs, a soft couch, and stools. There are also some quiet, private spaces in the house (that do involve some steps with handrails) if you need a moment to yourself.
