This plus-size beauty queen and Nevada’s Red Rock Canyon = magic.
It was 95 degrees at sunset, but luckily Ms. D is used to the heat and I had plenty of water with me, so we took lots of breaks and it worked out fine. Better than fine, in fact. She’d chosen a sparkling sequin gown in rose gold that blended incredibly well into our surroundings.
We didn’t want to stop even when the sun went down, so I found us an area filled with white rock that gave us a bit of natural light even as twilight was ending. Then the moon came up and was far too beautiful to waste, so we played around a bit and I used my car headlights (!) to create a few last magical images under the moon.
Hi there! I’m Lindley (she/her, pronounced LIN-lee). I’m a professional body positive and fat positive portrait, boudoir and small business photographer in Seattle, WA.
I create artwork that celebrates the unique beauty of bodies that fall outside conventional “beauty” standards at Body Liberation Photography.
These images were created on land belonging to the Paiute tribe. I support my local tribal council monthly and you can too: www.realrentduwamish.org.
