There was a lot more but she had started removing the stolen images and text by the time I was screen capping.

Update 09/01/2014 @ 1PM 

Added the Yelp link along with sources for the images “Aimee” uploaded to the Ella Bella profile.  Aimee B’s profile picture is the same that Renee’ uses on her personal Facebook page.

Well, one of the regular commenters found more stolen images.  Shocker, I know.   I sourced a bunch of them until I got a headache and decided that I was done.  The link is above (photobucket).  Notice that the images are also for sale and are downloadable.  Lovely.

Update 09/11/2014

Renee has claimed she’s deleted all of the images that were not hers from her website and Photobucket account.  Unfortunately that is not the case.  I don’t understand why she hasn’t deleted the images like she SAID she was going to do but she made the albums private and kept the images up.  They are still able to be accessed via direct links and also by Google search.

This wall of shame is dedicated to photographers that feel that it's okay to steal others' work and post it as their own. Oh I'm sorry, it's okay to let their "web designer" do it.
