Tasha’s Crochet Creations:  https://www.facebook.com/CrochetCreations88

I have received a ton of submissions this weekend but this one caught my eye due to denial being strong with this one.  Please forgive me for not getting to all the submissions yet – weddings are in full swing and it’s a holiday weekend!  I did a bit of digging on this one but will post more at a later time.

Update 05/26/2014 @ 10:30AM

Added in pictures from the second website along with images from her Facebook before she started deleting.  She’s commenting below stating that she had permission from the photographers and it was her second shooter that did it (yet they don’t have access to her websites).

Update 05/27/2014 @ 11:00AM

Added links to other sites of hers, some of which still have stolen images on them.

Update 05/27/2014 @ 1:00PM

For those of you that are as confused as I am as far of the excuses/stories and who the fuck this woman is, here’s a synopsis.

Charming Photos is ran by a woman named Aries Lanna Thompson.  She claims that another person works with/for her named Natasha “Tasha” Elizabeth Wile.  Tasha has yet to comment on Photo Stealers.  Tasha’s business, Tasha’s Crochet Creations (which also had stolen product images), has the same phone number as Charming Photos, they claim to “share” the phone.  The personal Facebook profile images also appear to be the same woman.  Aries claims that her and Tasha use pen names and hide their real locations to protect themselves.   Aries also used to work for J-Tron Productions and owned S&E Weddings.

Regarding the use of the stolen images, Aries claims that she had permission from the photographers and/or clients to use the images (further claims of this here, here and here).  Photographers and clients have emailed me and also posted stating this is not the case.

  • doncalifornia

    I love the “you people have so much time on your hands you have to annoy and slander me” harangue. It’s kinda charming that they think this absolves them somehow.

    • Julie

      Actually, I think that’s her!

    • Julie

      Where is that? I haven’t seen any responses.

      • doncalifornia

        On Charming’s facebook page, a screenshot is posted at the end of the main PS article above.

    • Yet more proof she is illiterate: “… have to annoy and slander me”.

      slan·der [slan-der]

      noun

      1. defamation; calumny: rumors full of slander.

      2. a malicious, false, and defamatory statement or report: a slander against his good name.

      3. Law. defamation by oral utterance rather than by writing, pictures, etc.

      Source: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/slander?s=t

      Since our accusations are not false, her use of the word slander is incorrect.
      Since our accusations are in writing (not oral) the proper term to use would be libel.

      The next example is:
      “Lesson #3: Find your nitch, and by that i mean find”

      Nitch? Not a real word. Niche

      And her tip #1 just made me laugh out loud.
      Lesson #1 : Do not attempt to clean your lens yourself. EVER.

      SERIOUSLY!?! I could see her recommending a profesional cleaning of the cameras SNESOR but the lens? REALLY?

      • Lindsay11

        hahaha nitch. Find your nitch Eric, c’mon!

      • doncalifornia

        I believe cleaning the lens yourself leads to disease and pestilence. That’s why I buy ND filters by the crate. I just take the dirty one off and throw it away and put a fresh one on. It’s either that or send the lens into Nikon for a thorough wiping. But that’s pricey.

  • Just a Girl

    I would be FLIPPING PISSED if I wanted Boudoir photos and she gave me these! WTF!

    • Helena

      Oh my god. Shit. I take better photos than that in my bedroom using the frickin’ timer!

      • Josie Garner

        Ahhh the photos are of HER – so she DID take them in the bedroom with the timer!!

        • Helena

          LOL! My display pic is a selfie FYI.

      • Lindsay11

        I bet *I* can take better photos than that! And I’ve got some years old crummy point and shoot my mother in law found and gave to me lol I may just try and see if I can do better…

        • Helena

          Haha. Do it! Sometimes selfies are the only way!

    • Wow … that’s pretty bad. No idea how to light a shot, white balance is wrong, pose is horrible, framing is atrocious …

      I mean, even something as simple as getting proper white balance … if you can;t get that right or at least fix it in post then you should not be doing paid shoots!

    • Aries

      This is what she requested actually, I let her see the pictures as I was going and she was more than happy with the finished product, but thank you for you un-asked for opinion 🙂

      • Norman Beer

        So this isn’t you?

        • Aries

          No ma’am its not, it is a client I had last year who wanted a very specific style, which I gave to her.

          • Tegan

            I will be honest. I don’t think Aries/Tasha is actually the mom to 2 girls. I don’t mean to sound cruel but I think Aries/Tasha is of the born male gender. Just saying…..(and yes, I am posting as a guest)….I need to get signed up with an account. I am a long time reader, first time poster.

          • Guest111111

            why would you lie and say this is not you? We have seen your pics…on your FB as well as your weebly blog page? You have serious issues lady. I feel bad for you.

        • CrackerJacker

          How could you think these are the same people?!?

          I mean, aside from the fact that you have eyes…

      • Just a Girl

        HAHAHA see above where I said you are delusional. Get real.

      • doncalifornia

        She requested her feet be better lit than her face and that you used a flash on camera turned vertically so that silly shadow fell to her left behind her? Did she request that imaginative use of selective color? Look, we’re not saying you’ll be a bad photographer forever, but you have a lot of skills to develop and they take a long time. You don’t just stick a hat on someone wearing panties and poof you’re boudoir photographer. This is not professional at all. I am not trying to be mean, I am just letting you know that if you put this kind of work out to the world to show what you’ve got, the world will assume you picked up a camera the day before yesterday. You have to know what you are doing before you start charging people money for this. If your skill level was the only problem, none of us would have ever commented, but then you took it upon yourself to find really good photographs, photographs resulting from years of education and refinement by true professionals, and then represented them as your own. You are defrauding potential clients, for starters. But you are also infringing copyrights illegally, in a very real way. BOTH of those things open you up to legal liability. I am guessing you don’t have indemnity insurance, or any such business liability insurance, so you’re really out on a ledge on this. I haven’t checked this morning but you should have already removed all photos which are not yours, and you should contact every photographer whose images you used without authorization, and offer to pay them something, and then promise to never do any such thing again (especially “off-line” like in password-protected galleries and physical prints!!) You should stop denying the theft and pretending you were just posting inspiration. It is only going to make the efforts of people from groups like Photo Stealers that much more intense. Just telling you the truth and believe me it’s a truth. You will continue to be under a level of scrutiny from now on, whether you re-brand and change your name or not. You can, however, play fair and fly straight, be honest, and work on improving your skills and only charge according to your skill level and experience. That behavior is highly regarded and applauded by all of us here. The alternative is undesirable.

        • Lindsay11

          This is so very well said don and it’s a shame she will never read it or care.

  • doncalifornia

    So this whole “copyright issues” thing started back in January?

    • Just a Girl

      Someone must have been tipped off pretty quickly cause she didnt even start her page til Oct. UNLESS this is a Re-brand

  • Just a Girl

    The photos left on her page are OBVIOUSLY not Professional ones. Trying to find the smallest comparison is head pounding! Her poor clients have been definitely ripped off.

  • anonee

    her personal FB page still has stolen ages up- at least the cover: https://m.facebook.com/aries.lanna.9?_rdr

  • Just a Girl

    She still has stolen photos on her Facebook
    https://www.facebook.com/aries.lanna.9

  • anonee

    she may have deleted the direct post but it still shows on twitter: I would like to apologize to those who follow my page. I did not realize that posting inspiration and ideas would… fb.me/3fm5rlzSd

    Ha! hmm putting your watermark on other photographers’ photos is definitely posting about ideas & inspiration…

  • Melinda Potter

    Oh good lord! Her photography is horrid! I know that it’s neither here nor there, but… Seeing the work that I can only assume is her own, just kinda took me by surprise. I went and checked out her abouts and blog posts and just quickly skimmed through, and it made me shiver. She is outright duping people! She COULD possibly be like some of the others who have been featured here and started to believe her fantasies and lies, but… Well interesting blog considering her skill set.. I’ll just leave it at that WOE!

    • Just a Girl

      It really is bad. Shes not only duping shes plainly ripping them off!

      • Helena

        Sometimes these posts makes me think I shouldn’t bother spending the next 5 years building a portfolio and studying photography before attempting to go pro.

        • It’s frustrating right? You work so hard to build up your skills and portfolio only to have some jack ass hack build their entire presence using stolen images and then, to add salt to the wound, they typically charge completely un-sustainable rates, dragging the entire industry down.

          EDIT:
          This is what I mean about un-sustainable.
          “FLASH SALE! This week I have 16 sessions available for $25!”
          source :https://twitter.com/CharmingPhotos1

          • Helena

            But did you see the wedding packages? Bearing in mind the image quality on the Facebook page, it’s extortion!

          • OH MY GOD!!! At those rates she will be attracting clients who won’t have any qualms about suing her into oblivion if she doesn’t produce and based on the images left on her sites/Facebook, she can’t produce that quality of work!

            If the copyright owners of the images she stole don;t sue her into bankruptcy, her “clients” will!

        • susan

          I know, right? I feel like these fakers, who haven’t even taken enough images for their own portfolio, truly believe they can get the same results as the images they steal. They’ve given no thought to posing or lighting technique because they have no idea those go into making a good image. I think they are “enchanted” by the new Rebel they just purchased that makes them a “pro.” (No offense re: entry level cameras since good photographers can make great pics with them!)

          • Helena

            I have only spent about 3 months so far on courses, but am planning another 3 at least which will take well over a year and a hell of a lot of money. It’s annoying that people like this just go out and take horrid photos and charge for them when I’m investing so much in it.

          • doncalifornia

            And then of course the experience necessary to truly know how to handle and entire wedding day from getting ready to the reception, to editing, showing, and telling the story with an album, etc. This isn’t something photographers just know intrinsically, it must be learned through experience. Fakers just don’t see that, and they just don’t want to acknowledge it.

  • Melinda Potter

    Ok then

    • doncalifornia

      Melinda is this a personal fb page? I can’t find it.

      • Tahraysee

        Yes that’s her personal page.

      • Melinda Potter

        Yes, just a girl posted the link to stolen cover photos promoting her business on her personal page

  • Melinda Potter

    Seems another photographer is involved in this scam. I wonder if it’s the new photographer she talks of in one of her blog posts. she claims to be mentoring someone new YIKES

    • Melinda Potter
      • Just a Girl

        BAHAHAHA “Lesson #3: Find your nitch, and by that i mean find what draws you to
        photography. What about taking pictures makes you happy? What drives
        your passion for it? Once you figure this out, it will help you keep
        yourself motivated on long days.” OH YES, Aries…. you found your nitch… stealing other peoples photos and being happy about it. Im sure once you figured out how to do that you kept yourself motivated and busy for days on end! By the way… WHAT DOES MAKE YOU HAPPY taking other peoples photos?

      • susan

        Omg…i gagged on that post! Oh, and it’s niche. She is delusional.

      • KimJ

        This drives me insane. No professional should ever have bad grammar and spelling “Even tho I did get mine working again”

    • Josie Garner

      No, wait, no – that’s HER. It’s totally her!! There’s a picture of her daughters ‘Emma and Sarra’ and look here – http://newwile.blogspot.co.nz/ – aries lanna, mum of 2 girls, Emma and Sarra. Wtf…. this just gets weirder!!

      • Aries

        I took pictures of my co-photographers children, your point? I do not have children of my own as I am unable too.

        • Norman Beer

          Perhaps you should read your own websites before you say this.
          Aries LannaMom of 2 beautiful girls, Sarra and Emma. Anything else…just ask

          • Aries

            I know what it says, and unlike you I KNOW WHY IT SAYS THAT. Stop thinking you know it all and let it go.

        • Norman Beer

          What actually amazes me is that THESE are the things you decide to comment on, NOT the fact that you STOLE images and claim them to be your own.

          • Lindsay11

            We are of a like mind here Norman as I just posted the same thing. She is being ridiculous. Stop coming here to lie Aries, you are not the first thief caught out and you won’t be the last.

          • aries

            I actually have commented on that as well, try to keep up please

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, I was keeping up WAY before you thought you were caught. Just THINK about how much evidence there is that you stole images. Think about the fines. Think about the fact that you committed FRAUD and could land in prison. Yup, that IS a possibility.
            Oh SNAP! You never thought about that did you?
            So WHO has the catching up to do here?

        • Joseph Philbert

          Lame it’s still copyright infringement

          • Aries

            Its copyright infringement that I took pictures of my second photographers kids WITH her permission for a paid session?! You are an idiot if you believe that

          • guest1111

            The copyright infringement i the dozens of images you STOLE from other hard working professionals and plastered your HUGE ugly watermark on them claiming them as your own. You are truly delusional. You pretend to be someone you are not and deny being who you really are. So sad. I truly feel sorry for you as you must have had some horrible things happen to you in your life to make you this way. Get some help. PLease.

          • guest1111

            And how the hell do you have a 2nd photographer when you have no idea how to take photos of quality? The images you have left on your page are horrendous. You said on weebly you have 6 years experience? What? How? You would think there would be some understanding of lighting, WB, DOF, posing….anything photography related. You are making me crazy

  • Helena

    The copyright post! (⊙_⊙) I’m beyond shocked.

    • Joseph Philbert

      They said exclusive …. Right … Lol

  • KimJ

    All right lets start a list of excuses
    1) I found them on Google
    2) I have terminal cancer and the meds kicked in
    3) Blames her assistant
    4) The web designer

    • Aries

      Never found anything on Google, I do not have cancer or any other illnesses for that matter I am very healthy according to my doctor, I do not have an assistant to blame nor would I have a reason to blame one if I did, I run/design my own website. I have one paid employee and she only has access to the facebook page not my website. Is there any more assumptions you would like to make?

      • Norman Beer

        That somehow a magic unicorn put STOLEN images on your FB pages and websites?

      • Lindsay11

        Aries you keep cherry picking your responses but… c’mon there is SOOO much proof. What excuse can you possibly have for all your theft? There isn’t an excuse, it wasn’t ok. Take a minute and read some of the past thieves that have been exposed here and try not to do what they have done. Pick one of the thieves who admitted their guilt and asked for forgiveness and moved on. Don’t pick one who is going to try to come up with lame see through excuses and sockpuppets. Just come clean and apologize to the photographers and your clients.

        • Aries

          No excuse needed, I have permission from someone who OWNED a copyright of the images that are not mine or my photographers. I don’t need to read anything about anyone, I know I did nothing wrong and I have nothing to prove to you. My clients know I am an honest person and I have MANY clients who return yearly to have pictures done, so your slander does nothing to me, only wastes my time.

          • KimJ

            Yeah right same story heard it over and over and over.

          • Lindsay11

            Slander is verbal. Libel is written. This is not libel since it is the truth. You are so ridiculous. I understand you feel like you are being attacked and want to build up your walls to protect your lying and theft but you are really just making it worse.

            Want it to go away? Show us proof you bought every single image. Go ahead, we’ll wait.

          • Aries

            Do you own one of the images you are claiming I stole? No? Then I guess I don’t owe you anything 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            You sure don’t! I’m not a photographer, I just dislike thieves and liars who end up here by ripping off some very talented people. 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            I bet your clients would be horrified if they saw this page. But I haven’t seen any photos that you have actually taken so I’m not sure you have too many clients.

          • guest1111

            You have no clients LOL there are very few images on your pages of people other than the you that you pretend not to be. I have contacted some of the original photographers and they have assured me that YOU DID NOT HAVE PERMISSION TO USE THEIR IMAGES, let alone with YOUR watermark on them…idiot! Even if you purchase images from someone else, you can not place your watermark on them. Helloooooooooooooooo for a photographer with 6 years experience you should know the laws and rules of copyright.

      • Justin Case

        How about, “I have defrauded my clients and stolen from my peers.” Followed by “I am truly sorry, I will post a message on my facebook and website so all my friends and clients realize that I truly AM sorry for trying to decieve them, and I will contact all the photographers so I can pay them for their hard work that I took without asking.”

        That would be a start.

  • KimJ

    Took a break to steal more photos.

    • KimJ

      Didn’t take her long to remove my post and block me from her page LOL

  • susan

    WoW, the photos now on her FB look like snapshots that could be taken by anyone. And I believe they are of her kids only, plus herself for the so called boudior pics. No posing knowledge, no demonstrated understanding of lighting, POV, etc. I would guess that the wedding shots she did were for free for a friend or family. I’m betting this chic thinks her work is on par with the images she stole.

    • Aries

      I dont have children, cant have them actually but thank you for assuming you know anything about me 🙂

      • Lindsay11

        Aries LannaMom of 2 beautiful girls, Sarra and Emma. Anything else…just ask
        I guess that’s not you?

        • Just a Girl

          LOL I’d be really disturbed if someone, even a friend, was using pictures of my daughters and claiming them as their own.

      • Norman Beer

        Aries,
        A little piece of advice, stop the lies, you’ve been caught, and by the looks of it, this isn’t the first time. However this time, you stole from people that actually will do something about it.
        Remove all of your stolen images, apologize EVERYWHERE, and go learn how to actually take the types of pictures you stole “for inspiration” as you say.

      • KimJ

        Really is that why you closed your other page because some “stalker” on FB had photos of your kids???

        • Aries

          My photographer also used that page, she had that happen and we both agreed to close it. Any more questions about kids I dont have?

          • KimJ

            OMG I know this one … it is called “Blame the assistant”

          • Aries

            I dont have an assistant, so try again please

          • KimJ

            But you just said that you have somebody working for you? Come now keep up with the lies….

          • Lindsay11

            LOL Your photgrapher shares this blog page with you that has nothing to do with photography and says this:

            “Saturday, January 18, 2014

            Holding Back

            I dont know who, if anyone reads this and honestly I dont care. For those of you who dont already know, this blog is about me, by me, for me….period. If i wanted people to see it or hear it, I would have sent a message to that person.”

            Riiiiiiight.

  • KimJ

    Just saw up^^^ That the screen shots taken were in January 16 – due to copyright issues ?? what in January so this isn’t something new. Somebody else must have sent her a DMCA or had problems with her.

    • Lindsay11

      She posted this on her blog in July 2012 so maybe she has a history of this? You’d think if she knew how upsetting it was to have your children’s photos stolen that she wouldn’t go and… steal photos of children.

      “On top of the less than lovely day, i found another creepy facebook stalker who has posted my facebook information (for all of them), my biz website and my personal website (which has pictures of my children) all over his facebook and sorority life…which is scaring the living shit out of me. I now have no idea who all has access to my kids pictures, who all has re-posted my information, we all is watching everything that i do…so, i have made changes…all profiles expect one are now fully locked down, meaning unless im looking for you, you cant see me. My biz website is monitoring EVERY visitor and recording all IP addresses incase there are any “comments” like last time this crap happened, and finally my personal web page has been deleted down to one page with a personal message to my stupid stalker….GRRRR i hate creepy assholes who take fb games WAY too seriously!”

      • KimJ

        Somehow I don’t believe her. I think she was found out and that is why she closed her personal page.

        • Lindsay11

          I think so too! Otherwise there is no way her stuff would have been public again. If I found someone was stalking me with my kids photos and information I would never ever post pictures of my kids again. No, she got caught and used an excuse. How long till she’s here acting the victim?

  • OMFG! She REALLY needs to be sued into oblivion before she hurts a baby!

  • KimJ

    I see all the comments from the FB page have been removed.

    • KimJ

      FB is down but Twitter is still up.

      • KimJ

        Sent a note – wonder how long until she deletes this?

        • Lindsay11

          Gosh I wonder why her page is down? 😛

          • Aries

            It is down so that my photographers have time to update with some of their spring sessions but thanks for asking 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            Are you sure it’s not down because you had to take down the stuff you stole and steal more Aries? That’s sorta what it looks like.

          • Aries

            Yes I’m sure considering I never stole anything to begin with, and I could honestly care less what you think it looks like. I only take opinions on how to run my business from 3 people: 1. potential clients, 2. current clients and 3 people who have invested in my business. Since you fit into none of those, your opinion is void to me 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            If you aren’t worried about my opinion or anyone else’s here why are you all over this site? I’d be worried to since each theft can be worth $150,000 to the original photographers. And they can sue you even after you’ve removed it. Instead of lying here and being cute, I’d be rather worried and checking my bank account.

          • Aries

            I was curious to see what the link was that got posted on my page 100 times. They are attempt to sue me, once I show proof that I paid for copyrights to them the case will be over. Also, Ill let you in on a little secret, just like a writer I use a “pen name” as does Tasha, and to sue someone you have to have their legal name(s) and actual location. Here is another secret: After having me second attacked, we stopped posting our current location and information 🙂 So good luck to whoever tries to sue someone who doesnt exsist 🙂

          • Norman Beer

            Wait, you JUST admitted that you created a fake profile?
            Let’s just KEEP adding up the criminal charges!

          • Lindsay11

            “You can’t sue me for stealing because I’m using a fake name!”
            What a child.

          • Lindsay11

            Wow I so would not use a photographer who can’t keep track of what her assistant does, uses a “pen name” and has no contact information.

            Which, I’ll let you in on a little secret, you didn’t change your info so… yeah I’m sure someone will be able to find you.

          • Lindsay11

            We’d love to see your proof. Go for it. I’ll be the very first person to apologize if you legitimately paid for every single photo you used. But… c’mon, we know you didn’t. So, we’re waiting.

          • captain-confuzzled

            okay Natasha, whatever you say

          • Ferrerfoto

            Thats laughable. How do your clients find you? You don’t think people in the legal system will be able to find you? They’ll be able to locate you with your IP address within minutes. Welcome to 2014….

          • Helena

            So I’m guessing the business isn’t legitimate or registered either, so you’re committing tax evasion too?

          • Justin Case

            I have to up vote you on this one Aries, it’s possibly the most ludicrous post I have seen on here yet, and that really says something.

            So, you are a professional photographer who uses a ‘pen name’ to do her PROFESSIONAL business? And exactly who do the checks go to? If you work, you get paid. And if you get paid, you are taceable – and legally liable.

            And sorry, but just what the fuck is going on in your professional business life that would cause you to be attacked multiple times? (Other than the obvious fraud and theft issues, I mean)

          • guest1111

            You do not own the copyright to ANY of thosse images! If you did, the ACTUAL photographers would KNOW and would not sue you….ALSO…NO PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER is going to sell you the copyrights with the permission to put YOUR watermark on them and claim them as your own…NONE! lot of us here are real professional photographers so you are unable to fool us as we KNOW how things work. You are not very smart. And again, Tasha is YOU! It is obvious from all of your other pages. We saw them all dummy. You look even worse trying to defend yourself. We would have much more respect for you if you just admitted fault and said sorry. Come on this is pathetic

          • Joseph Philbert

            4. photographers I steal from

          • Just a Girl

            You dont have any investors. No one is dumb enough to invest in a business that doesn’t have potential. You don’t have a portfolio of anything but stolen photos and snap shots that a 2 year old could have taken. In other words… you do not have anything to invest in period. NOTHING NADA ZIP. The one thing you do have is a name that is climbing up Goggle with the word PHOTO STEALER behind it. You really need to start some damage control and do the right thing. Which in case you missed it is apologize publicly to the REAL Photographers that you stole from, inform your past clients that you duped them and misrepresented yourself.

          • Helena

            Honestly, my son has taken better photos at 2 years old.

          • Helena

            You could care less? So you do care then, which is obvious, because you’re posting here like an idiot.

          • KimJ

            So when are you going to publicly apologize for stealing their photos?

          • Aries

            Im not, I had permission from either the photographer or a client who owns a copyright of the image, so I have need/reason to apologize

          • KimJ

            Okay so give us the proof

          • Joseph Philbert

            No you don’t stop lying

          • Just a Girl

            Give it a rest. Even if you did have permission ( Which we all know you didn’t) from the real PROFESSIONAL ( cause you aren’t) photographer none of them would have ever given you permission to take their watermark off and add yours. You are just a silly little thief swimming in a tank of her own lies at this point in time. I hope they sue your ass all over the country. In all seriousness you really do need to be worried. This aint no game when you start infringing on someone elses livelihood.

          • Helena

            Client had copyright ownership of the image? Posting and printing rights maybe, but not full copyright.

          • Aries

            Im not

          • KimJ

            So you say – where is the proof?

          • Ferrerfoto

            Thats about your 4th mistake in all of this. 1st was stealing. 2nd was lying about it. 3rd was actually being naive in thinking that posting on this site would make things better for you.

          • Joseph Philbert

            So now you have a team of photographers …. You are a dumb ass

          • Aries

            I have one other photographer who I pay and a second who i mentor. I stated all this before so please keep up I hate repeating myself.

          • Norman Beer

            THAT is called an ASSISTANT… Perhaps YOU need to keep up with your own lies…

          • KimJ

            You just told me that you don’t have an assistant! Keep up now

          • CrackerJacker

            OK, mentee, today I’m going to show you how to put together a great portfolio. Repeat after me. Right click. Save image as. Done! You’re a professional photographer!

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            Why on earth do you need to take the entire page down to add an album with new work? I’m completely baffled.

          • Joseph Philbert

            Normal photographers upload without taking down their pages.

  • Norman Beer

    Hmm… Looks like she lost 1/3 of her Twitter Followers overnight…

    • KimJ

      Down to 2 now.

      • Lindsay11

        LOL wow! So she had 10 people last night?

        • Norman Beer

          Uhm, no.
          What is 2/3 of 3? 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            Wait wait, I know this… pi!

    • Aries

      Didn’t even know I had a twitter account, nor do i can how many followers I have on there. I get clients in person, in my area not off twitter. Thanks for the info tho 🙂

      • Norman Beer

        Again, more lies… Sad.

      • Lindsay11

        This is beyond silly Aries. If you don’t have a twitter account, then you stole a photo from a friend of someone on that twitter account.

        Y’know, it’s not exactly like your name is Susan Smith.

      • Just a Girl

        hahaha! you clearly are delusional considering the same photos were on your Twitter and Facebook.

        • Norman Beer

          They were across multiple sites.

        • KimJ

          oooh goodie a “my account got hacked” coming up soon.

        • Aries

          Ok seriously, keep up this time: I have a second photographer who also uses the facebook page. She may have created the twitter account as i gave her permission to create whatever accounts she wants as long as she is the one who maintains them. So yes it is possible that I have a twitter account that I did not know about.

          • KimJ

            Okay so now it is “blame the assistant”

          • Lindsay11

            There it is, she’s blaming a second photographer for stealing photos. I’d fire that girl Aries, if she really did all this. But she didn’t.

          • Helena

            The second photographer is in her head.

          • Norman Beer

            It’s called MPD.

  • Lindsay11

    Remind me never to wake up late again! Almost everything is down already lol Here’s an interesting thing, I can’t read the watermark… Jtron? Jtroa? Whatever it is, it’s not Charming or even Aries, so why’s it on her page? That’s from http://charmingphotos.weebly.com/ … most everything else is stock photo or a… not up to par with the other photos photo.

    • Aries

      J-Tron Productions was the company I worked with a few years ago. He is a good friend who DJs weddings and had tons of people asking if he knew a good photographer. We teamed up, and I became J-Tron Photos for a while.

  • Aries

    It is amazing and somewhat amusing to me that you all have nothing better to sdo all day than attack someone you know nothing about. I had permissions for ALL the images I have on my website, I bought copyrights from people who owned them (some where the original photographers, some where the clients who paid for the rights). I do have 1 other photographer who works for me, and I have a second who I am mentoring. Now, while I am flattered that you all have stopped your lives to focus on mine, the attention is not needed. My facebook page will be back up and running later this week when my photographer has time to get some of her spring session pictures loaded without being harassed the entire time. So, if you all would grow up and move on that would be wonderful 🙂 Thanks

    • Lindsay11

      Ridiculous. You are ridiculous. Trying to put your theft on US is ridiculous. You aren’t special and you’re not the only thief. It’s sorta what this website does. The photographers you stole from are going to end up on this site to say, “No of course I didn’t sell my photos to someone pretending to be a photographer.”

      And secondly, that’s misrepresentation. If I go looking for a photographer I am not going to look at all your photos and think, “Oh she can’t take her own pictures so it’s ok she stole and used stock. I’m SURE her photos are exactly the same quality as the ones she stole!” No, no one in their right mind thinks that.

      You’re a thief and a fraud and a liar and you should try to fix this asap rather than making excuses and playing the victim.

      • Aries

        Not playing victim, I could honestly care less what you all think. You do not pay me nad you do not contribute to my business, so you opinions do not matter. I am on here because I find it hilarious that SO many people have SO much time on their hands that they can OBSESS over a person they dont even know, about something that has nothing to so do with them! I wish i had that much time, i barely get any time to myself as is let alone enough to become obsessed with a stranger, that must be awesome!

        • Lindsay11

          Yeah yeah yeah, we’re losers with too much time on our hands, whatever. We think it’s incredibly dishonest and fraudulent to steal photos and pass them off as our own. We hate to see photographers hard work be ripped off and used by people with no ethics and no customers. So.. stop posting ridiculous lies and post your proof. We are waiting.

          Also you should know, in cases like yours where the thief keeps making up lies and saying we have too much time on our hands… well we just dig more and find more lies. You are digging yourself into a hole here and you really should stop.

        • peaceetc

          Photo Stealers has dealt with much bigger people than you — and frankly, this isn’t even about you, it’s about a much larger issue. It’s not an obsession (though I’m sure you’d like to imagine it is), it’s a desire to stand up for what’s right. Copyright infringement is a very real issue, and it is illegal. If you want the copyright holders to sue you, then by all means, keep on doing what you’re doing.

          Take a look around, Aries. Your smug attitude just makes things worse for yourself, because we aren’t buying it.

        • Helena

          Really, you need to look at how many people are commenting here, how many complained about you stealing photos, and then work out if you have enough personalities to argue with everyone. What you did was dishonest, and immoral. I will admit though, watching the reaction of thieves like you is fascinating.

        • guest26e

          I find it funny that someone has SO much time on their hands to right-click and save as then try to lie their way out of it. Must be incredibly time consuming.

    • Norman Beer

      PROVE IT! Prove you have permission from even just one.

    • KimJ

      Really?? hahaha stop with the lies, you have been caught red handed. Do the right thing and apologize. You are not the first to get caught, you won’t be the last and we have heard all the excuses before.

    • Lindsay11

      So for bingo cards:
      1. I had permission
      2 My clients had permission from other photographers (wut. I think that’s a new one)
      3. You all have nothing better to do
      4. Second shooter
      5. Leave me alone.

      I bet someone has a bingo!

      • KimJ

        I had Google LOL

      • KimJ

        You left out the bonus : 6. It was my assistant.

        • Lindsay11

          Oh I was counting that as second shooter but you are right it looks like there is an assistant. Man, paying for all these photos plus two other people who can’t take photos must be EXPENSIVE! She really isn’t getting her money’s worth here.

    • Joseph Philbert

      You so know we will contact the copyright owners right? What then?

    • Photo Stealers

      If the original photographers gave you permission, why would they (and not just one but MANY) contact me asking me for help because you refused to take the images down? You did not and do not have permission to use these images.

      • This!
        What this pathetic thief does not seem to get is the simple ethics of this business. All work you show under your banner must be your work, taken by you. Period.
        This is the assumption of any potential client looking at any representation you post of your business. That they are seeing what you are capable of. If you are not showing your own work you are committing fraud, whether you bought a stock image or not. Buying a stock image (and I don’t for a minute believe she paid anyone for a single image, ever) does not give you the right to claim authorship of that image. Just like buying a copy of Harry Potter from Amazon does not give you the right to say you wrote it…
        get it?
        Her lack of knowledge only points further to her guilt… just using the term “I bought the copyright” shows she is lying. No one sells their copyright unless very big bucks are exchanged! Or unless you are a beginner who does not know better. It is usage that is bought and sold and clearly that is not the case here. A very bad liar with a dirty lens!

  • Norman Beer

    @Aries :disqus,
    Before you start digging a deeper hole, you may want to think if anyone has ANY more proof from either yesterday, or weeks, months ago. Why? Because all of that WILL come out and you WILL fall flat on your face. Remember that people DO screen capture and gather evidence BEFORE this post ever comes out.
    Now, would you like to start over? Apologize and move on or dig a hole you’ll never get out of?
    Your choice. It has nothing to do with us and out future. Only YOU can change what the future holds for you.

    • Lindsay11

      Yes, this! Just stop Aries. Take a breath and think things through clearly. Writing the same lies over and over isn’t helping your case. If you really did buy all those photos show some proof. But you can’t because you didn’t.

  • Lindsay11

    Aries, you said you didn’t have kids and the photographer that recently started working with you shares your PERSONAL blog that has nothing to do with photography. Why did you write this 2 years ago? Stop lying please.

    • Joseph Philbert

      Wait … she does not have kids … but is a single mother??? Let me do some digging.

      • Norman Beer

        See my post with screen caps of her entire blog.

        • Lindsay11

          Did you get this blog Norman?

          • Norman Beer

            See my post right above yours.
            Also, I have a TON of other screen caps. So much so that I need to move them to a backup drive as I’m on my Air with a limited SSD drive.

          • Lindsay11

            Oh, I meant this one http://newwile.blogspot.com/ the only thing I needed off of there was her saying she didn’t have kids and they’re all over that page. I feel bad for kids if their mom is lying about their existence.

          • KimJ

            This one

          • Norman Beer

            This is who i am
            I am a mother of 2 beautiful daughters who deserve the best life can give them. I am a daughter, adopted into a new family, but loved and love both of my families very much. My families are not perfect, we have our flaws, our fights, our secretes but in the end we are blood/family…and that means everything. I am a sister, i have younger siblings, some i have yet to meet, but all who i would give anything to protect and help. I am an aunt who has some of the cutest nephews in the world. I would do anything for those boys as if they were my kids. I am a friend, im not the prefect friend because Im not a prefect person, but i will still stick up for my friends. I have stood by my friends while other s would have walked away. My friends are not perfect, but thats why i love them…they have flaws like i do. I am a lover, i am not the best girlfriend on earth, because i am not perfect, but i do give everything i have for someone i love, even if they cant see it. I will stick up for someone i love even when i know they are dead wrong. I will make myself look like a fool to try to make people like to, make people understand what i can see that they cant.

            I AM ME: I AM NOT PERFECT: I HAVE MADE MISTAKES! At the end of the day, however, i still know who i am. I know what i want in life, and i know what i have to do to get it. I am willing to fight my way to the top to be able to provide for my children, even if it means i give up everything i have in life. I will work 80 hours a week for my daughters to get the best education, the best classes, the best of anything they want, because that is what they deserve. If anyone wants to say any different, i dont care…they are not your children. I may not be the best mom, but i will do everything i can for those little girls.

            I have made many mistakes, but i am finally learning from all of them…and im ready to move on with my life. There are people around me who want to hold me back, remind me of all the ways i have messed up my life..but im saying NO MORE! I am moving on, letting go of the past and leaving anyone there who doesn’t want to let go of it…no matter how much it hurts.

            I am standing up for myself and my daughters, I will be me, i will no longer let other people decide how i should act, how i should talk, who i should be…IM ME, im not your puppet any longer.

            If you would like to stay in my life there are a few things that you must do (this applies to everyone in my life): Move on from the past (it is done and over with, do not bring it up), be a positive person in my life (if you are here to bring me down, remind me of my mistakes, i do not need you around), You must love me for me…with no conditions. You must be willing to stand by me through the good times and bad…not just when you want to.

            If this seems like too much or something you arent willing to do…you are more then welcome to walk away, out of my life and my daughters and you are not welcome to return until you are willing to be a true friend to me. thank you

            It seems she has 2 kids,..,

      • Lindsay11

        Well, unless she had someone else posting that on her personal blog (like she says she did lol) that is all about her but… well i doubt that, don’t you?

      wow, Norman, you’ve been on the case awhile!

  • Aries

    While this has been interesting and comical, I have a business to get back to now. Have fun obsessing over my and my business while I continue to provide great photography to my clients 🙂

    • Norman Beer

      OH NO!
      HOW did YOUR WM get on these images?

      • KimJ

        Ring stolen, baby stolen

        • Norman Beer

          More than that…

          • KimJ

            Those were just the random 2 that I searched.

    • peaceetc

      Sure, but whose photography will you be providing? I get you don’t want to admit you did anything wrong, but you are listed here for a reason. Photo Stealers was contacted by the actual copyright owners because you were using them illegally. This listing wouldn’t exist otherwise.

      We have heard all the excuses, Aries. You are not a special snowflake.

      • Or to quote fight Club:

        Tyler Durden: Listen up, maggots. You are not special. You are not a beautiful or unique snowflake. You’re the same decaying organic matter as everything else.

    • Lindsay11

      Really? I’m so surprised that you are leaving as soon as Photo Stealers points out your biggest lie. I thought for sure you were going to show us proof that Aries Lanna is not a photo thief.

    • Helena

      You are 100% delusional.

  • Lindsay11

    Lets say I’m a photographer. I want to put up websites for me and my two assistants/shooters who may or may not exist. So instead of using photos that the three of us have taken, we “buy” hundreds of photos to use from other photographers and stock photo companies. They don’t look like any the three of us can shoot but oh well, we want our websites to look nice. I don’t know how much stock photos cost, but the first google hit turned this up:
    Photographers Direct – Sell Photos – “The average fee for an image licensed through Photographers Direct is about $200.”
    That sounds kinda expensive! Lets say I found a cheaper stock company to buy from. So Let’s say $100. On this page alone I would pay roughly $2200.

    I would be a TERRIBLE businesswoman. http://charmingphotos.weebly.com/

    • peaceetc

      Yes, yes, yes. If you’re a photographer, why on earth would you buy stock photos to show on your site, anyway? Wouldn’t you want to show your own work so that clients hire you based on what you can actually do instead of what you wish you could do? Not to mention, potential clients have you idea it isn’t your work at all.

      Photo Stealers has proof from several of the original photographers Aries didn’t pay for the photos, so the whole point is moot, anyway.

    • Hit microstock sites like Istockphoto.com. For web use you don’t need large photos so you are looking 4 credits … each credit costing maybe 2$ (depends on how many credits you buy or if oyu are doing monthly subscription) so 16$ a picture @ 1699 x 1130 px?

      Example: http://www.istockphoto.com/stock-photo-19636944-beautiful-bride.php?st=c1873c2

      Of course, it’s against the ToS but almost no one ever reads those.

  • Lindsay11

    She pulled the main page of this, I guess. But she is/was a part of S&E Weddings http://www.bookedin.net/s–e-weddings

  • Joseph Philbert
    • Lindsay11

      Yeah I guess she was a part of J-Tron, hence that photo I posted earlier. Which makes it even funnier she swears she doesn’t have a twitter.

      • Patrick Mitchell

        She posted here exactly what she put on Twitter about how it amazes here that people ccan take an entire day blah blah blah…

        • Lindsay11

          haha omg I didn’t think of that, you are right.

    • Norman Beer

        hahah oh dude.
        That’s the one she claims is her second shooter. Are they the same person?

        • Norman Beer

          It would appear so.

        • peaceetc

          I think so. A profile photo on there looks like her. Compare that to the images screencapped from her blog in the comments down below by Norman Beer.

          • Lindsay11

            Well, so much for, “Tasha and I have pen names like writers.” Maybe she has multiple personalities? :p

          • KimJ

            How many of these thieves don’t have multiple personalities?

          • Melinda Potter

            1 or 2 I think

          • Maybe Aries is her Tyler Durden?

          • Helena

            OMG coughing fit from laughing. Thanks for that! 😀

          • Justin Case

            I think we should start responding to her posts with “you told us you’d say that.” and “You told us you’d say THAT too. Now who has the rubber band?”

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            Tasha is apparently in a relationship with a guy named Dakota who just happened to add a picture of Aries and himself. I feel weird posting about someone who may not be a part of it so I won’t. You can find it easily enough though.

          • Just a Girl

            The description listed on the link for the groom doesn’t even come close to matching the guy in the photos on the “Dakota” Facebook page.

          • Norman Beer

            Look, I don’t judge. Perhaps they are in a polly relationship. As long as they are happy and the kids are safe, who cares?!?!
            🙂

          • Just a Girl

            Poly relationships need healthy people in them…. shes not. 🙂

          • CrackerJacker

            Not to mention her boudoir “client”.

        • Just a Girl

          I think they are… otherwise Tasha is passing off Aries kids as her own. AND if by some small chance they are 2 different people that whole scenario would be weird and not normal!

          • Lindsay11

            I didn’t even think of it that way lol If I were “Aries” I would be so upset that my assistant/partner/whatever was posting things about my kids. I would have fired her at the very least not defended her. So funny. Wonder if Tasha will come back or we meet the sockpuppets first? I vote sockpuppets.

    • Norman Beer

      She didn’t even strip the EXIF…

      • Joseph Philbert

        Yea I know made it a bit easier to find…. it boggles my mind the most thieves doent know about EXIF.

      • Lindsay11

        I know vaguely that EXIF is the information that gets encrypted onto the photo, but how do you find it?

        ETA You know, don’t tell me if it makes it easier for thieves, I can probably google it. lol

        • Norman Beer

          It depends on your computer. There is a ton of software out there.
          I use DPP. It’s free from Canon.

          • Lindsay11

            Ohhhh so it’s not something I can just look at online. OK, sorry! I’m still learning 🙂 Thanks Norman 🙂

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, depending on the website, yes.

          • peaceetc

            If the photo is on Flickr, you can view the EXIF data. On one of the Flickr photo pages, click on the ‘info’ icon, then it will show basic info. Click on ‘show all EXIF’ to see everything. And I mean everything. I’m pretty sure if you looked hard enough, you’d even see the kitchen sink. Like Norman said, it depends on the web site…. most don’t specifically allow for the viewing of the data.

            Failing that, Windows shows part of the data. Download the photo and then right click on the file name and choose ‘properties.’ From there, choose the ‘details’ tab. Loading a photo in editing programs tends to make the EXIF data viewable, too.

          • Lindsay11

            OOO it gives you the date and the time the photo was taken right there on flickr! And a lot of other numbers that probably make more sense to you lol So cool, thank you!

        • Joseph Philbert

          @Lindsay11:disqus I use this online service a lot .. quite easy.
          It gives more detail than the plugins I use.
          http://regex.info/exif.cgi?dummy=on&imgurl=http%3A%2F%2Fcharmingphotos.weebly.com%2Fuploads%2F1%2F0%2F9%2F9%2F10991870%2F5776979_orig.jpg

          • peaceetc

            That’s awesome. I didn’t know that site existed.

          • Lindsay11

            Awwwwwyeah! I just got more tools against thieves, watch out now!

            Thanks Joesph 🙂

          • Justin Case

            Just be careful Lindsay, it isn’t foolproof. You can easily change the metadata with the right software and a bit of knowledge, but if you have a background in digital images it makes it easier to decipher as you know what to look for.
            Things like software used and image size and format can tell us a lot even if the thief strips the copyright info or changes the date.

        • You can get a plug in for Chrome that will let you see the exif. Exif info is also kept on flickr and directly accessible there. Facebook strips the exif out of the file (before making it a mess with it’s f’ing compression algorythm).

      • Just a Girl

        LOL Last night when I saw those boudour photos all I could think about was cheap sleazie hotel when I saw the wrinkled back drop!

      • Or you know … learn proper studio lighting for pure white seamless.
        It’s not rocket science … just light the backdrop seperatly and over expose it.

        • Helena

          You can’t do proper studio lighting without lights is my guess…

          • That really is pathetic (not you but someone doing studio work without lights).

            You can get a couple of YN460II for 50-60$ each and a couple of dummy triggers (PT-04’s) for like 30$ for a kit of one transmitter and 4 receivers. Throw in 3 lightstands (15$ each), a couple of umbrellas (15$ each) and umberlla brackets (6$ each) and you have a basic 3 light setup for about 350$ … the cost of ONE LOW END studio strobe!

            I shot this with that exact same setup. 2 lights on the backdrop one light on the product to the right of the frame.

            https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2818/12160114186_b9f30432c9_b.jpg

            This is pretty much straight out of camera (after minor tweaks when converting from RAW to jpg).

            The light on the subject is in a medium soft box instead of an umbrella but that’s the only difference.

    • Norman Beer

      She claims it’s not her.

      • Joseph Philbert

          She’s just in denial.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            I totally missed that. Oops.

            And I apologize for posting twice and deleting the one ( it didn’t look like the screenshot was going to show ). I didn’t know that it just keeps the posts under ‘Guest’. Corey Ann, if you see this and couldn’t mind removing the other post… 🙂

          • Norman Beer

            It’s all good! Repetition isn’t bad! 🙂

          • That’s one of my MAJOR pet peeves with Disqus! Deleting doesn’t actually delete the comment, just assigns it to guest! That is a MAJOR problem.

            In the future, simply just edit your comment and remove the actual content.

          • Norman Beer

            Good to know!

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            I’ll need to remember that 🙂

    • That black and white with selective color makes the picture artsy instead of pure crap , it really helps draw attention away from the shitty backdrop and to her crotch … oh no, wait … it doesn’t.

      Maybe we should link this pic over at youarenotaphotographer.com ?

    • Popcorn At The Ready

      I don’t know who is fake anymore. Dakota? Devin? Do they even exist?
      And what’s with the ‘Karen French’ watermarks on everything? I assume those pictures are supposed to be of the actual bride and groom to be. This whole thing just becomes juicier and juicier.

      • captain-confuzzled

        looks like at least Dakota exists – pic from his FB page

      • Lindsay11

        Whoa I missed Karen French watermarks, which photos have those?

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          Everything but the clipart.

    • Lindsay11

      Oh this is the guy she mentioned on her personal blog. It’s kinda sad actually 🙁

    • Joseph Philbert

      Hmmmmmmmmm you know the funny thing is the only reason most of us digging is because of the continued blatant lies.

      • Norman Beer

        Exactly!

      • Lindsay11

        She can’t say we didn’t warn her. I flat out told her to stop lying or we’d keep digging and find more lies.

      • Lindsay11

        I’ll just leave this here:

        • Norman Beer

          As I said below, she’s admitting to a crime. Not the smartest thing to do.

          • unfortunately anything said here is hearsay. 🙁

            ps.: I’m not a lawyer.

          • Norman Beer

            Except SHE said it, so it’s admissible.

        • Norman Beer

          Also, I’m guessing that she doesn’t know that her IP is captured and can be traced back to her address.

        • FFS. They are traceable … they do business with real people. How can they imagine they won’t be caught if someone REALLY wants to sue them?

          It does make it clear why they have free weebly accounts instead of real domain names. Makes it easier to remain anonymous but, unless I ma mistaken, we have phone numbers here somewhere … the linked info can be requested.

          • Lindsay11

            It took us less than an hour really.

          ummmmm we already have her real name 🙂

    These thieves always have soooo many business, what is up with that? Here is her crochet business. https://www.facebook.com/CrochetCreations88 Don’t you always present your self as a classy adult on your business page? I would. Tasha wouldn’t.

      Why on earth would one person need so many Facebook profiles? It violates Facebook’s rules of not having multiple profiles, of course, but it’s more than that. It’s just flat out weird to do what she’s doing. And she posts her own photos on all of them, too. What the heck is wrong with her that she feels the need to do that?

        I’m guessing she had family commitments on this holiday. Has to go otherwise people might ask questions.

      Wait is it me or Disqus ?? this was the image I was trying to post

      • Popcorn At The Ready

        It showed up underneath.

        The problem I have is it’s hard to notice the ‘show more’ option at times and I miss screenshots. I wish there was an option to expand all comments.

        • captain-confuzzled

          sometimes they don’t show up until a refresh too,

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            Lindsay’s crochet screenshot just appeared within the last few minutes. It was posted over 20 minutes ago. I suppose Disqus has a bit of trouble with larger file sizes.

          • Norman Beer

            Or too many on one thread 🙂

  • Lindsay11

    Man… I just found her daughter’s birth record and I wasn’t even looking for that. I’m not posting it but man… if you’re going to lie you should do a better job covering up. It is almost disappointing.

    • Norman Beer

      Screen cap it and send it on, along with the URL should it be needed later.

      • Lindsay11

        Alright I screencapped it. I just don’t want to bring her kids into this, I know none of us do, it’s just… she lied about them. That is gross.

        • Norman Beer

          Exactly!

          • Lindsay11

            Oh and this is how hard I was googling: it’s the very first link that comes up when you google her name. I mean… c’mon.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            Which name though? 😉

          • Lindsay11

            Her actual name she said we would never find.

          • susan

            Not the sharpest tool in the shed, perhaps?

          • susan

            Ok, I googled and found it. What did she lie about, besides saying on here that she (Aries) had no kids? No doubt Aries is Natasha Wile.

          • Lindsay11

            She was claiming she wasn’t Tasha. And that she didn’t have kids.

        • Photo Stealers

          Please don’t bring her kids into this, they are minors (I’m assuming) and this isn’t their fault.

          • Lindsay11

            No I absolutely didn’t mean to, but if she wants to claim her kids aren’t hers I will have a question for her. That’s all.

          • Photo Stealers

            Saying where to find it is fine, just don’t post it here unless she pushes. 😉

          • Lindsay11

            Absolutely, I didn’t want to find it. I won’t even post it here even if she does come back lying.

        • noname required

          I think you have gone a step too far here by even posting that you found the birth record. The fact that she has children (or doesn’t have) is irrelevant and should not have been brought up. I am all for exposing the photo theft but dissecting a family is going too far and cause me to think that maybe you should go spend a few minutes with your own family. Just my 2 cents worth. Corey, carry on with your work. You do a great job, however, some of the participants here really should think about their motives and the pleasure they gain from their activities. Corey asked that the children’s names not be posted and yet I see them posted on here as a screen shot.

          • Norman Beer

            She is the one that brought up the children claiming we were lying and she did not have kids. Also, it was way before Lindsay mentioned she stumbled across the “Public Record”.

          • Lindsay11

            Do we have our first sockpuppet?

          • noname required

            I am not sure what you mean by ‘sockpuppet’ but if it has something to do with my not using my name, that would be because I do not want my affiliation or activity on here broadcast because I would hate for my customers to think I take an active role in tearing apart other photographers on a regular basis. I do have a question, Lindsey, why is it that you hide behind a fake facebook profile for your commenting and posting there about PS? Possibly secretly getting out your frustrations here, behind the veil, because of an unsatisfying home life?

          • captain-confuzzled

            i’m sorry, that post is just funny. thanks for the laugh.

          • Lindsay11

            I’m not the one who stole photos and is a liar and a fraud. Deflection, your honor.

          • noname required

            I know exactly who you are and what you are. And yes, you are a fraud. I may have to share a few things here, just so these fine folks know who they have welcomed into the fold.

          • Lindsay11

            LOL OK
            hahaha

          • Lindsay11

            Please Mr./Mrs. Required, post whatever you want. I’ll wait.

            Oh do go on. We’re waiting with baited breath.

          • Lindsay11

            Let’s not hold our breaths.

          • Joseph Philbert

            If I turn blue is that a bad thing…because right now I am a Smurfette shade of blue 😛

          • Helena

            I believe you’re posting from beyond the grave…

          • Lindsay11

            No, she’s just gonna get mean and nastier. Maybe she thinks I’m someone who turned Tasha into photo stealers? Cause otherwise… this is a weird attachment she has to me!

          • Norman Beer

            Wait, let me take one of your images, and edit it blue!
            Oh, but then I have to claim it’s mine!

          • peaceetc

            Can we refrain from personal attacks, please? It’s uncalled for and completely unnecessary. I suggest reading through the comments to find out why this came up at all, instead of doing what you’re doing, especially since it’s no better than what you’re accusing Lindsay of doing.

          • captain-confuzzled

            hmmm, let’s see, posting accusations, being here, hiding behind another name = unsatisfying home life, well then ding..ding..ding..we have a winner in “susan”

          • Lindsay11

            It’s funny how many people just stumble upon the site and start attacking people. When you stumbled across this site did you think it was awesome and want to help or did you think the people were terrible with too much time on their hands? lol

          • peaceetc

            That does seem to be a trend, doesn’t it? “I just got here and haven’t bothered to read the comments but all of you are wrong and here’s why…” Funny, that.

          • captain-confuzzled

            I thought, wow, I’ve seen so many photographer’s businesses hurt by people who steal their work and how cool to be able to help stop the thieves. I never imagined how much there was to learn about the typical ways in which photo stealers do their thing and how many lives they often hurt with their thievery.

          • noname required

            My eyes are being opened to that now. Wow, yes

          • noname required

            I don’t believe I used the word stumble, but I do think the intentions of the blog are great.

          • susan

            Ummm…What? None of that applies to me…

          • Lindsay11

            If Corey could confirm that Susan is not from an ip similar to noname required that might clear things up for both involved.

          • Norman Beer

            @photostealers:disqus

          • susan

            What I want to know is, what did I post as “susan” that makes you or Captain think I am no name or that I’ve made accusations against anyone?

            I’d like to know because I post here all the time using my name.

          • Lindsay11

            I do apologize susan, I don’t remember specifically confusing you with noname, I just suggested Corey clear things up since captain had said you might be the same person. I think it was just the two of you posting at the same time. Again, I apologize, I was just trying to help clear up confusion 🙂 Forgiven?

          • Lindsay11

            And if I’m gonna go to the trouble to use my name you could at least spell it right.

          • Lindsay11

            Yeah, except she brought it up first and lied about it. It’s the first link that comes up on google search so… whatever. I have not posted her children’s names or screenshot so… whatever.

          • Norman Beer

            What you may not see is the progression of the posts. She came here and posted on the most random comments. Not any relevant to the image theft. That is what caused people to start digging further.
            Again, the record found is public. Not anything hidden in any way. Lindsay did not post any information that wasn’t already denied by Aries or posted on Aries pages. Oh, yeh, you may have missed that SHE posted the names of her children on public pages.

          • noname required

            I did miss that Norman. My bad.

          • Lindsay11

            So are you going to apologize to me too? Or keep attacking and threatening me?

            Or more likely just disappear I guess.

          • Norman Beer

            @Big Ron:disqus,
            Make sure you read EVERYTHING before you make any accusations. You will get yourself into trouble and have to eat crow at the very least. Also, when you make a mistake, apologize immediately.

          • noname required

            Norman, I think I have noted right away when I missed something. I am however, willing to eat crow when necessary. My “My bad” was an apology of sorts and an acknowledgement that I missed something. To answer your question Lindsay, NO. I know you, I know what you should be doing right now instead of spending hours here getting pleasure in this. No, I will not broadcast your dirty laundry here, I think you can tell by my demeanor that I would take no pleasure in that. I would take pleasure in knowing that you are tending to your family’s needs though. That is as far as I will go with that. I will now spend a tad bit of free time reading up so that I can make more informed comments from here on out.

          • Lindsay11

            You are adorable. Truly. You won’t “broadcast [my] dirty laundry here” but you sure as hell want to hint that you have something. So cute!

          • Photo Stealers

            I haven’t been able to quite figure out where she’s going with the story but she claims that the profile she’s created is a fake person so *if* anyone would want to sue her they couldn’t because she is a totally different person in real life. She is claiming that there are no children and she cannot have children yet her (very) public profile states otherwise and appears to be her real name.

          • Lindsay11

            For the record I thought very hard before I posted that but here’s why. She started in with the lying.
            She brought up her fake persona and that she didn’t have kids.
            She taunted us that we’d never find her real name and she wouldn’t be sued.
            I did a search on her real name and the very first link was a birth certificate. I didn’t post it or plan on posting it. I’m sad she brought her kids into it. I thought if I posted that, people would know it was out there and we’d have the discussion and no one would need to post it. That’s how it turned out and here we are. I don’t believe for an instant I did anything wrong by mentioning a public result for her children that she has put out there publicly. lol

          • noname required

            Why add the “LOL”?

          • Lindsay11

            Because you are really being ridiculous trying to make this some issue about me. I would not be surprised that you are in some way connected to a thief and a fraud.

          • noname required

            I just saw that, in perusing. Thank you for your heed not to publicize the children’s identity. Good to know there is a moderator keeping an eye out. I just found this blog and have enjoyed reading through some of the posts and I do hate knowing that there is such an onslaught of this type of theft. Would like to know, do you ever have anyone come back and say they sued and won?

          • Norman Beer

            The thief? Nope, never!
            The victim, YES!

          • Photo Stealers

            Yes, there has been quite a few cases where people have sued and won over copyright infringement. I know there are a few ongoing cases with thieves I’ve outed here.

          • noname required

            Good to know. I would think that would be the ultimate goal here. Recognition of the theft and resolution.

          • Aries

            Tasha/Natasha is NOT me, Aries is the pen name I go by because of blood thristy prudes like the ones on here. I am not able to have children and that is a fact, that after losing 4 children in miscariages, i have learned to accept. I love my second’s children and take pictures of them, which is 100% legal. They call me Momma Aries, so yes I have “momma” on a few things, get over it. My legal name is protected because of idiots like the ones on here who start frivilous lawsuits over things they are not even involved in. The images everyine freaked out over are off my page, so grow up, let is go nad MOVE THE FUCK ON ALREADY

          • Norman Beer

            LIES!
            What about all of these?
            http://charmingphotos.weebly.com/

          • Norman Beer

            Oh, then WHY are all of the images the same across all of your pages?

          • Lindsay11

            Even if you have removed things, the original photographers can still sue you. So I’d check the attitude.

          • Lindsay11

            “Blood thirsty prudes” LOL

          • peaceetc

            The only lawsuits would be from the copyright holders. If people are that prone to filing lawsuits against you, what the heck are you doing to cause it? Seriously, the whole world isn’t out to get you, but if you steal photos, we will care. If you push us, we will push back. If you lie, you will be exposed.

            How about you try following the law, stop with the attitude, and if anyone does decide to pursue their claims against you for copyright infringement, you better have a good lawyer. This may be the internet, but you can be found. Just because you may have removed the images, it does not mean this is over. The copyright holders have a perfectly valid claim and can sue you for the time they were up. Removing them does not except you from the law.

          • Joseph Philbert

            I am moving on…. to your next lie.

          • Norman Beer

            Your legal name is NOT protected! Especially not when you end up going to court over a civil or criminal case.

          • guest1111

            If you have permission and copyrights to use them then why in the world would you remove them? You did nothing wrong right? Soooooooo why?

          • Joseph Philbert

            Nothing wrong with saying you found a birth record. The very fact she posted it on facebook publicly is something that you should be exposing to her.

            As for me my motives depends on the person that is listed … if she never came here and commented and lied through her teeth most of us would not continue to dig so far into her personal life.

            The very fact that the person who found it chose not to post it says a lot.

          • Helena

            It comes up first in a search. Public record. Lindsay stated she was not going to post it because she didn’t want to bring children into it, so what exactly is your problem?

          • Melinda Potter

            This person knows Lindsay personally, and knows Lindsay has a lot of laundry to clean and other things to do for her family…or something like that. I think this person might be Lindsay’s mother in law!

          • Lindsay11

            LOL crap!!!

            ETA I actually do need to switch the laundry, thanks for the reminder Melinda! 🙂

          • Melinda Potter

            By the way Lindsay, I’m with your Mother in law…The last of five loads of laundry is in the dryer, I cooked cinnamon rolls for breakfast, have dinner planned, all the dishes done, two bathrooms cleaned and the dogs are bathed. This was all while checking in on PS, posting, searching, reading ALL the posts since I woke up this morning. You’re a slacker, or you need more devices that can get you on the net. One of the two.

          • Melinda Potter

            Maybe you can ask her to buy you an iPad for Christmas?

          • Norman Beer

            Or new appliances that have web interfaces!

          • peaceetc

            I’m not Lindsay, but I’d settle for a Nexus 7.

          • Lindsay11

            I think I might actually be getting a phone soon! You guys are gonna be sooooo sick of me!! Mwahahaha! 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            Hell I will totally agree with you on the last one, I DO need more devices. I don’t own a cellphone. But I do have a computer in almost every room of my house and two monitors here so other family members can watch tv while I do internet stuff.

            Today I was lazy cause it’s memorial day. I sat my fat butt here and laughed at a photo thief. Well, ok, I don’t want to lie, I made french toast for breakfast, did some laundry, vacuumed, gardened, cleaned the bathroom, fixed lunch, watered the lawn, made the beds and started dinner. Imagine if I had more time to look for thieves?

            OH and we walked our dog for about half an hour! It is so hot out there … I think I’m going to put my feet in the pool soon.

          • Melinda Potter

            Lindsay, there’s been a few thieves that have got me going, (one here and a couple elsewhere) and I honestly got nothing at all done. I’m surprised I didn’t get bed sores on my ass, and calluses on my clicking finger. My family will ask “what are you doing?” And I’ll grumble and grunt “fucking photo stealer…you won’t believe what THIS one is doing?” Sometimes they have joined in. Not my little guy though, he doesn’t see the fun in it yet, he’d rather play outside lol crazy kid

          • Lindsay11

            LOL thank you Melinda, I know I’m not alone here! It’s hard to look away! But I am about to pour myself a drink and get in the pool. And then I’ll check here again lol

          • Helena

            Show off. 😉

          • peaceetc

            I have some laundry in need of doing, too. After noname gets through with Lindsay’s, can they come over and do mine? Maybe some vacuuming, too, while they’re at it. Oh, and pull some weeds in the yard, and sweep the driveway. The windows need washed, too…. gosh, the list goes on and on.

          • Helena

            Hahaha hahaha. Yes. LOL

          • Norman Beer

            I was out on assignments for the past ten days. The house REALLY needs help! Dogs need a bath. BUT all of their poop is picked up and the laundry is done AND put away!

    • Helena

      It’s a bit of a problem in the “you can’t find me because I’m using a pen name” scheme though. Shame.

    • Norman Beer

      Seriously, did you notice her FB URL for her profile? Yup, not a mom, RIGHT!

  • Lindsay11

    Here’s her crochet business. It’s a long one maybe I should split it up into two posts.

    • Lindsay11

      circle of bows https://www.etsy.com/nl/shop/SweetlaceShop

      beads have multiple

      butterflies multiple

      buttons multiple

      feather multiple

      ok in fact if I don’t mention it, it’s multiple sources/stock

      regular bow is from https://www.etsy.com/shop/SweetlaceShop again

      that turtle might be from an actual photographer but I don’t have time to check so for now multiple

    • Lindsay11

      The other thing is, if she stole someone’s pattern and sold items using that pattern she could be sued by the pattern maker too.

  • Lindsay11

    Crochet business part 2

    • Lindsay11

      I think I missed one

    • Lindsay11

      Blanket is from a how to video so she dug real deep for a chevron stitch there.

      In fact, the ones that aren’t from a particular etsy shop are all grabbed off of most popular lists. Lazy.

    • ALP

      She claims above that all her patterns are from Red Heart and other free pattern sites, which is copyright infringement. I’ve never seen a pattern on one the big yarn makers’ sites that doesn’t say for personal use only.

  • Norman Beer

        Everything is gone now.

      • Big Ron

        Doesn’t look like he’s been on his FB page much since February, and he has only 155 followers, so he may not even know about any posts on his FB page.

          The latest posts with the comments are gone making it appear that he hasn’t been active since then.
          Yes, looks like he deleted his entire post and not just the comments.

    • peaceetc

      Look further down in the comments. There are several by “Aries” where she cops an attitude, claims she has permission for all the images, and that we are all obsessed.

    • Norman Beer

      Weebly is still up and they are playing games with taking her sites down.

  • Norman Beer

    Oh no! She’s pissed at me!

    • Joseph Philbert

      LOL!

      • ALP

        Also, all the patterns on Ravelry, Red Heart, Lion Brand (yarn manufacturers) are for personal use only. You’re not allowed to SELL anything made from their patterns. They are great for gifts and learning new stitches in order to create your own patterns but selling stuff made from them is … wait for it … copyright infringement.

        • captain-confuzzled

          not to mention, as Lindsay pointed out, many of the crochet photos on the Foursquare page are stolen from Etsy artists

        • Lindsay11

          Speaking as someone who has knitted/crochetted off and on for over 30 years there is a huge difference between following the patterns and creating your own pattern. Hey, that sounds like the difference between creating your own photograph and stealing someone else’s!

          • Lindsay11

            I am not sure that crochetted is a word but you get the idea.

    • Norman Beer

      You have GOT to be kidding me! Are you serious?

    • Norman Beer

      SMH

    • Norman Beer

      WOW! MPD for sure!

  • Norman Beer

    LOL
    I really wonder how far she’s going to try and go with this…

    • Joseph Philbert

      I am soooooo Obsessed if you keep lying we keep digging. 🙂

      • Norman Beer

        Someone must be able to call BINGO by now!

        • Lindsay11

          I called BINGO at 7am lol

          In fact, where are those bingo cards! Is there something on there about trying to change the story and attacking us here? Something a little more than just sockpuppet 😉

      • Aries

        Dig all you want, but when my co-photographer sues you for slandering her name and exposing information about her children, then I’ll get to laugh my ass off at you all.

        • Lindsay11

          Please do call a lawyer.

        • ALP

          Just for shits ‘n’ giggles, you need to claim libel, not slander. Libel is written (print or digital). Slander is verbal. And you can’t slander or libel with the truth. Nor can you be accused of either for publicizing something that is in the public record (such as birth records or a public Internet profile.)

          • Justin Case

            …and just wait, the next one will be the ‘cyber-bullying’ ‘stalking’ charge.

        • Norman Beer

          Perhaps a dictionary would be in order… Try looking up some of the words you are trying to use.

        • Joseph Philbert

          Oh oh I hope it’s from a “big time entertainment lawyer” will add to the list of lawsuits to no where.

          • Helena

            You’ve been waiting so long for this big entertainment lawyer. One day Joseph… One day. 😉

        • Helena

          Your co-photographer Natasha Wile a.k.a. you?

    • Lindsay11

      She should probably not be posting that. Cause all it does is point here where there is information that Aries Lanna/Natasha Elizabeth Wile/Tasha Wile is a fraud and a liar and a thief.

      • Norman Beer

        Actually, I found more names that she goes by. Just don’t have time right now to dig into any of the courts and criminal records databases.

        • Lindsay11

          Awesome lawyer Norman. Or is it Judge!

    • Lindsay11

      Wait, what? Did she just call herself a complete moron?

    • peaceetc

      This lady has multiple aliases, multiple Facebook profiles, can’t seem to tell the truth to save her life, has outright stolen a number of images according to the people who contacted Photo Stealers, and calls herself a moron. Now THAT is what is interesting.

      Also, what are “bystandards”? Are they standards which swing both ways? Because it seems appropriate.

      • Norman Beer

        Please see my earlier comment on Polly. I do not judge peoples or ‘standards’ personal preferences and how they swing. 🙂

        • peaceetc

          I agree to an extent, Norman. If their standards are affecting my standards, then by golly, that’s just wrong. 😉

      • captain-confuzzled

        well, if this is her – she may have bystandards in a couple of ways lol

        • peaceetc

          This is the first time I have seen the screencap above (it didn’t show up until I reloaded the page just now). I don’t care if Aries is bi, and would never make fun of her sexuality. Heck, I’m gay, and would take affront at people making fun of anyone’s sexuality, including Aries’. My comment about “bystandards” was strictly making fun of her misspelling a word.

          • captain-confuzzled

            as was mine – just a play on words

        • Norman Beer

          Where is the rest of the profile? Tabs? Pics? Did you SC them before she had a chance to delete them?

        • Norman Beer

          ROFLMAO!

        • Just a Girl

          All i keep thinking with this screen cap is Catfish.

      • Aries

        Bystanders are innocent people who get caught in the cross fire of a battle, Bi refers to the sexual preference of both genders.

        • Norman Beer

          WOW! You don’t even know what you wrote! YOU screwed it up, NOT us!

        • peaceetc

          Yes, I am aware of the definitions of each word. However, you wrote “bystandards.” I was making a joke. I am the last person who would care of someone was bi or gay or what have you.

          • Lindsay11

            what is joke?? ;p

          • peaceetc

            No idea. I think I made the word up.

          • Helena

            Oh man, these comments are killing me. :’)

          • Cheryl Tunt: … and something called a defimbrulator? That’s a mde up word!
            Rodney: They’re all made up.
            Cheryl Tunt: *laughs* Mind … BLOWN!

    • noname required

      Aries, give up. Been doing some catching up on this thread and well, doll, you are flat out caught! Try to save what face is left, admit what you did, apologize, and set yourself on the path to something that you can do honestly. And please do not make the incorrect assumption that my earlier posts were in anyway a deterrence from what this original listing is about.

      • Norman Beer

        What she doesn’t get is that the longer she keeps up the games, the more people will dig. Look at other thief’s and see how much dirty laundry came out on them. There are people here with extensive investigative abilities and backgrounds. Look at some of the criminal activity from their past that was found because of their ‘games’ and ‘lies’ on this blog. Again, had they done the right thing immediately none of those things would have ever come up.

  • Norman Beer

    Twitter is now posting to a profile that she has locked down. Either to the business page, and she just ‘hid’ it, or she went in and linked it to a new page.

            Oh I see now

      • Melinda Potter

        I think she made an invite only group, for her five legit followers oops make that 2. But if you scroll down her twitter, you’ll see some posts talking about taking her page down and forming a group. I think she’s been in trouble with this for awhile, and has had lots of run ins before. Never to this extent, but it’s obvious that she’s had some past experience with people finding out she’s fraudulent, and calling her out on it.
        It’s kind of sad. I looked around her Facebook business page last night, and there was no interaction at all. She’s just pretending she has business and people that care and follow. This PS post probably brought her the most attention she has ever gotten 🙁

        • Aries

          I made a group because facebook made it harder to keep fans who are not active. Does no one go off FACTS anymore?

          • Lindsay11

            Yes, facts are you have stolen photos. This isn’t hard.

          • Norman Beer

            Like the FACT that you STOLE images!

  • Norman Beer

    OH NO! I’ve been blocked from her blog! Too bad it’s all been screen captured!

    • Lindsay11

      Good job!

    • Aries

      She made them private once I informed her that she had people trying to use them against me and also that people were bringing her children into a fight that has nothing to do with her or them….so yea, your not blocked, its just private.

      • Norman Beer

        Wait, SHE? That is YOU! SEE THE NAME! SMH

        • CrackerJacker

          I think I hear the cuckoo singing…

      • Helena

        Aries, it really sounds to me that if you honestly believe that this doppleganger posting to your accounts is not you, then you need to seek some immediate psychiatric help.

      • Just a Girl

        So why isnt she here fighting her own fight? Really, you just aren’t the right person for the job considering you are failing miserably at fighting your OWN battle. You lost the fight the moment you denied stealing. Which we all know that

        Charming Photos aka Aries Photography in Cross Lanes, WV
        is one big photo stealer!

      • Lindsay11

        So… Tasha made Aries’ personal blog private because people were talking about Aries’ kids. Is that what you are trying to say here Aries? It is so confusing. I can see why you can’t keep your own story straight.

  • Norman Beer

    Weebly pages are gone! I’m actually shocked that they did the right thing!

    • Melinda Potter

      As far as I know weebly and wix are both pretty good about it. It’s their only saving grace. So glad to see them gone 🙂

      • Norman Beer

        They were terrible! Read the comments on FB!
        Now they decided to block me from posting because I called them out on their BS! WOW! Remind me to tell everyone I know NOT to use them!

        • Lindsay11

          Weebly BLOCKED you because you called out a theft on their pages?!

          • Norman Beer

            Yup
            AND called them out on their lies regarding their own TOS.

          • Joseph Philbert

            HAHAHAH Norman the bad ass LOL

          • Lindsay11

            That’s … well, that’s not very professional. Very shocking actually. Hilarious though, sorry LOL

        • Melinda Potter

          Oh crap! I had no idea YIKES!

    • Joseph Philbert

      Well we bitched enough … 😛

      • Norman Beer

        Ask them why they decided to block me for pointing out their own TOS.

    • Melinda Potter

      Weebly needs to get on the ball. These fauxtographers use the crap out of weeby and wix FREE is how they roll. It should not be a fight to get a site that’s infringing down.

      • Justin Case

        I completely agree with you Melinda, and having followed Joseph’s little facebook go-round with them, it really seems like they can’t see past the dollar signs. All they mentioned when he pointed them here was that “you
        are posting a link asking for donations that has nothing to do with
        weebly product and service and donation links all over it”
        Pretty shitty behavior even if you can’t be bothered to look at the evidence.

    • Aries

      I removed them myself, they could have cared less about it because I gave them PROOF, so stfu until you know the FACTS!

      • peaceetc

        Proof of what, exactly? Why would you remove them if you were using all the images legally? It doesn’t make sense.

        • Aries

          I removed them so people would stfu and stop acting like children. I in no way am saying i did anything wrong, only trying to quit the angry mob of idiots.

          • peaceetc

            Well, here’s a tip, then. How about you stop with the insults and start telling the truth. Photos of you appear on multiple Facebook profiles, you have a variety of fictional names, and you can’t seem to keep your stories straight. And yet we are the idiots? Seriously?

            Catch a clue, Aries. This is not about you, specifically. It’s about standing up against rampant copyright infringement in the photography industry. You’re just another bump in the road, so stop flattering yourself.

          • Aries

            Really because I have personal attacks on my lifestyle, employee and friends that say it is personal. I do not go by “multiple” fictional names, only one. Tasha is my employee and has been for about a year. Photos of HER appear in multiple accounts because she has friends and I do not like posting pictures of myself where others can belittle how I look.

          • Lindsay11

            No one belittled your lifestyle or how you looked. You are a thief and a liar. Sorry the truth hurts you but there it is.

          • Aries

            Not a theif or a liar actually but okay.

          • Lindsay11

            You used photos that aren’t yours and you lied about it but ok.

          • Joseph Philbert

            Sadly you are both. Do you really think anything you say or do is NEW.
            I can point out at least 12 other photographer/fauxtographers that were outed that said almost the exact same thing you have.

            The Classic “DENY DENY DENY” Cover up and blame others.
            Eventually they either confess, STFU or make it worse.

          • ALP

            Not to quibble or anything but even if you had legally purchased photos from other shooters and were using them on your website, (which you didn’t; the proof is in the … many, many screencaps in the 500 comments on this post) isn’t that still lying to CLIENTS? You did not take the photos, they are not your portfolio … hence lying.

          • Norman Beer

            Exactly but she doesn’t see it that way. It was just ‘inspiration’! Really! See the BINGO card!

          • ALP

            And the reason I want to stab myself in the face with a spork. **sigh**

          • Norman Beer

            Don’t do it! You’ll have nothing to eat your mashed potatoes with!

          • ALP

            I do like mashed potatoes.

          • Helena

            Inspiration she stamped with a great big watermark and wrote a post about copyright about.

          • Helena

            Actually yes, you are a thief. You displayed stolen works without the copyright owners’ permission as your own work. That makes you a thief.

          • captain-confuzzled

            oops, little slip up there Aries “attacks on MY lifestyle”, I thought it was your employee that we were referencing everywhere.

          • peaceetc

            They’re all profile photos. On multiple profiles. Not just random photos of friends.

            I don’t care what you look like or what lifestyle you lead (I don’t even know what you’re talking about on that front), and I don’t care who your friends are. But it’s funny — you seem to be saying people have been after you long before this came up, hence the fictional names. I find it hard to believe everyone is after you and you are perfectly innocent. Where there is smoke, there is usually fire.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            With all of the strangeness surrounding multiple names and profiles aside, could you please just admit that you stole work from people and claimed it as your own? Perhaps contact the photographers you stole from ( whether they were aware of it or not ) and issue a formal apology.

          • Lindsay11

            Even if you removed them the photographers can still sue you. So stop with the attitude.

          • Aries

            Bite me 🙂

          • Lindsay11

            That is a super professional response! I’m sure none of your “clients” will be turned off by this!

          • Helena

            Wow, as this page shoots up the google results, it’ll be interesting to see how many people use your super professional services.

          • doncalifornia

            LOL, you realize of course that NONE of this is going to ever be deleted, right? Can’t wait until the future you comes back to read this someday and is properly HORRIFIED at your stupidity and arrogance.

          • Joseph Philbert

            Well guess what you dont have to say a thing … we all know you did wrong. Guess what… we wont STFU about it. Eventually you will.

          • noname required

            What is STFU?

          • captain-confuzzled

            STFU = shut the f**k up

          • Joseph Philbert

            Translation : “Shut The F#$%K UP” 😛

          • Norman Beer

            You STOLE IMAGES! You can’t prove you didn’t! Especially since it was the people you stole from that reported you!

      • Joseph Philbert

        Who the hell is “THEY” stop passing blame..

      • Helena

        Proof of what? If you have any proof at all, why haven’t you posted it here and absolved yourself? I’d guess the answer is that you’ve got nothing, you’re a liar, and you have no proof at all.

      • Paul G.

        You keep mentioning this proof. Its apparently something tangible that you were just able to show to whichever site it is we’re talking about right now (I’m seriously lost with all these different lies and aliases) so go on, prove us all wrong and show us this proof. Clear your name and completely invalidate all this negative press, it’d be the right business move and I’m sure it’d be personally satisfying too, right, specially if you feel like all these random friends/family members/whoever else has been bullied by us.

        Of course, maybe there’s just no real proof to post, seems like that’d be the only logical explanation of why you haven’t yet, and well, lets be honest here you do have a reputation of being a liar.

  • Chris Jones

    SMH. :/ I want to apologize to anyone and everyone for my antics. Lol reading some of these new posts, I look back and realize how stupid I looked. SMDH

    • Lindsay11

      I was thinking about you Chris, what advice do you have for this one?

    • Norman Beer

      @Chris Jones:disqus, PLEASE go visit her and explain to her that she needs to give it up! Oh, but make sure you bring a psychologist that can protect you from her multiple personalities!

      • Chris Jones

        haha well… direct me how to contact this person and I will give her some solid advice… the problem with these people that I have seen is the majority of them (I’m not that informed so this is an opinion) do not try to make a life change for themselves once their flaws are exposed. The best thing to do for anyone is just admit you were wrong, beg for forgiveness, pay the money to the people you took from… and don’t ever do it again, then seek concealing to reveal your problems that make a person do these types of things.

        • Norman Beer

          She is reading everything her based on her FB updates.

          • Chris Jones

            Best thing she can do is stop what she is doing and make things right.

          • peaceetc

            Chris, I have to say it makes me happy you have come in here lately being the voice of reason.

          • Chris Jones

            @peaceetc:disqus Well thank you for your kind words! I figure if anything I can offer advice on what not to do. ha! 🙂

          • captain-confuzzled

            good idea, but she has so many personalities, it might take a while.

          • Chris Jones

            As a person that has been on the other side of this I will say that it is quite possible she is just going through the emotions. I did, however that is not an excuse to keep going with the path that one has laid down. A person can change. They just have to realize themselves that they may have a problem(s).

    • If PhotoStealers doesn’t accomplish anything else from here on end, I’ll still consider it a major success just because of that statement. 🙂

      Welcome to the light side Chris!

      • Chris Jones

        Wow thanks Eric! ha..

  • captain-confuzzled

    bwahahahahahaha – Aries gives some good advice

    • Lindsay11

      hahaha!

    • Joseph Philbert

      I did my research… I will not hire Aries Lanna … facepalm

    • doncalifornia

      this gets more weird every minute.

  • Wes Jones
    • Lindsay11

      She’s only been on deviantart for four months? I’m betting she was on there with another name.

  • noname required

    Bear with me as I try to catch up and educate myself here. I am very glad to have come across this blog, an eye-opener for sure. I do not have legal knowledge, but I am wondering something that I have not seen mention of yet. There are photos of children stolen, of babies even. Can the parents of these children sue the photo thief in anyway? If these photos were of my own children, I would find myself on fire with anger that my childs photo is being used by a thief.

    • Lindsay11

      So you really aren’t going to apologize to me? wow.

      • noname required

        Ok Lindsay, I apologize for offending you with my comments. And for misspelling your name.

        • Lindsay11

          So… you apologize for my “dirty laundry” too?

          • noname required

            I am sorry, we all have laundry that needs cleaning. Ok, smiling and trying to inject some humor here. Bygones?

          • Lindsay11

            You accused me of being someone you know who has “dirty laundry” that you should expose. I would love to just say “bygones” – I think anyone who searches my comments can see, I’m not out for blood and I try to be fair to everyone. I’m not even sure what your motivation is, but bringing me into it was a low blow and distracted from the issue at hand, which is Tasha/Aries’ theft.

          • noname required

            I do know you and you know me. We can take up later in private, but not now and not here. No motivation, just got upset with the whole birth record thing and should have read further, as was pointed out, before jumping in.

          • Lindsay11

            OK sure, lets talk, I have time right now. Go ahead.

          • Lindsay11

            Also, yeah, I’m used to my name being spelled wrong and that’s not a huge deal. I’ll forgive you for that even though I find it annoying. What dirty laundry did you want to expose?

          • noname required

            🙂

          • Lindsay11

            Awww you are so cute. OK I will go call my mother in law, you are right, she probably isn’t getting enough attention…

          • Lindsay11

            No wait though, ARE you my mother in law? In which case I really did send you a mother’s day card and you should have gotten my email!

    • peaceetc

      I’m not sure. The copyright holder would be the photographer, unless they have specifically signed over the copyright to the parents in question. I don’t know about the legalities of using one’s image without permission in that sense. Photographers need model releases in a lot of instances, but beyond that, I don’t know.

    • Justin Case

      It’s a great point and one that has been brought up before with past thieves. The parent’s ABSOLUTELY have rights as legal guardians for any underage children in their care. If they didn’t give specific permission, (i.e. a legally binding contract with the photographer or directly with the person using/publishing the image, they can absolutely go after them with a DMCA takedown notice or sue the infringer directly.

      • noname required

        This I wish people would do. I can say on my end, if I found out that someone took photos that I as a photographer own copyright to, not only would I seek to sue them for infringement, but I would also alert the parents to look into their legal rights. When someone comes to my studio, they do have an expected right to privacy and even with a model release, they are not signing away rights for a photo of their child to be used illegally.

        • Justin Case

          sounds like good ethical, as well as practical business practice to me.

    • Not only the parents but ANYONE in any of those pictures could sue. The REAL photographer can use the images in their portfolio (technically falls under editorial use) but the THIEF does not have that protection and so we find ourselves with commercial exploitation of a persons likeness without permission from the subject.

      It doesn’t matter if the subject was 3 months old or 90 years old, they have a right to protect their likeness from commercial exploitation.

      PS.: I’m not a lawyer so take that with a grain of salt.

  • Popcorn At The Ready

    She appears to be loving the attention.

    Hi Aries/Natasha! *waves*
    Have you been glued to this page all day?

    • Aries

      No actaully I have not, but I do have people that monitor it for me. However, that post did not even refer to this page, but to the idiots who are attacking my facebook, my employee’s business and facebook and also friends of mine. This website is laughable to me. It is a bunch of adults attacking each other and throwing out accusations with little to no proof. The only reason I am even on here is to make sure my employees privacy and that of her children is protected and respected.

      • captain-confuzzled

        I’m shaking now – she has “people”! lol

        • Aries

          Yes they are called friends, you should get some they are really nice to have 🙂

          • captain-confuzzled

            thanks for the advice. I’m so lonely.

          • Lindsay11

            Awww I’ll be your friend! But you will have to do my dirty laundry first :p

          • captain-confuzzled

            lolol

          • Just a Girl

            LOLOL

        • CrackerJacker

          They all look just like her… Wait, Orphan Black???

          • Lindsay11

            Oh man, this is on my to-watch list. I’ve heard nothing but good about this show. Does it remind you of past photo stealers?

          • Justin Case

            HA! good one! (and no Lindsay, it’s just that all the main characters are played by one actress)

          • Lindsay11

            HAHAHA!!

        • Suzanne Sylvester

          and only 160 likes…..I should have lots of “people” then…..lololol

      • Lindsay11

        I don’t understand your attitude. Photo Stealers was notified and the original photographers are upset. How… why… why are you still claiming you’ve done nothing wrong and trying to throw shade?

      • Popcorn At The Ready

        There IS proof though. Proof that you’ve stolen work among other things.

        Here are two things that I find strange:

        ‘Tasha’ changed her picture to one of you at the beginning of this month. You’re the only other person visible on that account other than the two girls.

        Dakota added a profile picture of the two of you back in March. Even if you’re friends with both of them, I find it a bit coincidental.

        Maybe Tasha really is a different person. However, based on the evidence I’ve seen so far from other people ( and my own GoogleFu ) it’s highly unlikely.

        I will agree with you about protecting the privacy of any children that may be involved.

        • Lindsay11

          Isn’t googlefu amazing? Sometimes it’s as easy as googling a name. I’m astounded daily by what I can find on the internet.

  • Wes Jones

    Does she also go by the name of Tasha Wile?

    • Lindsay11

      yep.

    • Aries

      No I do not, that is the name of my employee.

      • Joseph Philbert

        I dont know of many employees that would use a picture of their “BOSS” as a profile pic.
        Its very suspect.
        Dumb Ass!

        • peaceetc

          You just made Norman smile, Joseph. 😉

        • Wes Jones
          • Norman Beer

            It’s the same person… WHY she thinks she can keep playing this game is beyond me.

          • Could be a twin sister? Just playing Devils Advocate. 🙂

          • Justin Case

            not ‘classy’ Wes, read the heading: it’s ‘Charming’

          • Wes Jones

            Ha!

      • Helena

        So you and your “employee” have the same name? Identical twins? Multiple personalities? Which is it, because it’s the same person in the photos!

    • Joseph Philbert

      Now “MamaWile” also spelled as “Tasha Wile has this image. I am guess the more of the employee like your image so much they used it as a profile too.

      https://www.facebook.com/MommaWile

      • Helena

        Aries Lanna also goes by Momma Wile too…

      • Joseph Philbert

        Discuss starting to annoy me …..
        this is want I wanted to show.

  • Guest

    She’s a nutjob. I screenshot her entire facebook before she deleted anything on fb. This one was my favourite I think. Come on guys, no stealing, okay?

    • Lindsay11

      These are copyrighted (but not by her lol) so please don’t steal!

    • Norman Beer

      Aries, how do you respond?

  • Wes Jones
    • captain-confuzzled

      yup

      • Wes Jones

        This is getting hard to follow with all the aliases and such…

    • Norman Beer

      What’s funny is she doesn’t think there is any way to tie everyone back in…

  • Justin Case

    and just so people don’t forget the damage that can be done by photographers promising things they can’t deliver, there was just an update to a recent photo stealer’s post:

    • Norman Beer

      WOW! So so sad! Thanks for pointing it out!

    • Helena

      That is horrific. 🙁

    • HOLY CRAP!
      That is insane. HE so needs to be sued into oblivion!

  • captain-confuzzled

    smh into oblivion – note time stamp of posting of this stolen photo as Fb header

    orig source: http://www.itsalwaysautumn.com/2012/06/13/photograph-take-great-photos-of-your-newborn-baby-pt-1-the-b.html

    • Popcorn At The Ready

      The quality of her work has certainly gone downhill since bringing the page back. I wonder why.

      • ALP

        Don’t you like photos of babies that have been processed into oblivion?

      • Joseph Philbert

        Why even bring the fanpage back up. To prove what. Did she not want to shut it down months ago because of the 1% thing?
        Your right the quality of the work went down the crapper now that she removed all the stolen images.

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          I’m glad she’s finally stepping up to change things around.

    • Joseph Philbert

      WAIT WAIT WAIT …. SHE STOLE THIS ONE TOO?!?!?!

      • Norman Beer

        He new cover photo is stolen.

        • ALP

          The baby photo above is stolen? It’s not awesome but I couldn’t find it anywhere else.

          • Norman Beer

            Yup

          • ALP

            Excuse my language, but for fuck’s sake. What was the point of taking the page down? I don’t get it.

        • peaceetc

          Maybe she thinks that because she (I’m guessing it was her) removed the background, that makes it hers. It doesn’t. The photo still belongs to the original copyright holder.

          • Helena

            My friend is concerned about this. She had someone shop some pictures I took for a project she’s doing, and she’s worried they might claim ownership of the shopped images. :/

          • peaceetc

            Did you or she give that person give permission for those images to be used in the first place? If so, maybe you should have used some sort of contract to specify how the images could be used, whether credit is given, etc. You might contact the person who is using them and try to work out the terms now. If they were used without permission, then you have every right to ask they not be used, or to specify how you want them used and under what conditions.

          • Helena

            She gave permission for the photos to be edited but nothing else. She’s just very cautious about covering her arse. Lol! She’s not bothered about contracts with me though. Ha!

      • peaceetc

        She deleted the comment you left on the image, but the image is still up. She’s a stubborn one. Do you think she is using the “Charming Photos” name ironically?

      • KimJ

  • Big Ron

    I’m sorry, but I just have a hard time believing this person is a full-time pro photographer with employees. She just broke 100 followers on her FB page, she posts things, and maybe gets one or two likes. There’s just no substance here. You see when a pretend fauxtographer is exposed by PhotoStealers, and they’re not really pro, then no one really notices. They don’t lose clients because they never had any. And that’s why someone like this Aries character, or whatever her other names are, aren’t really concerned about being apologetic and making good. There’s nothing to be lost because there’s nothing in the first place.

    • Norman Beer

      Except the lies with friends and family.

    • Joseph Philbert

      Makes perfect sense.

    • Unless one of the affected photographer finally decides to lawyer up … then there would be real world consequences.

      I don’t even understand what she’s trying to say! She got permission from Red Heart (lol) to sell things? Her lawyer said it was ok? She’s not Tasha or Aries?? Wut.

      Also, you don’t even have to go to Red Heart website to know you can’t sell items you’ve made, it says it right on every skein of yarn. Also, also… and apologies to RedHeart, but crafters who are good and sell their products using their own patterns don’t usually use RH. It is clunky and itchy and cheap.

      Look at her decreases at the top of the hat. This is in no way a professionally made well done hat that should be for sale. It looks like it’s the first thing she’s ever made and now she’s going to sell them. I bet that translates to her photography business, don’t you?

      • BullShite

        Dafuq is THAT? A hat? Christmas tree?

        • Lindsay11

          It’s supposed to be a child’s elf hat. She didn’t even properly bind off the yarn so she has a string sticking out of the top. And she wants someone to pay her money for this!

  • captain-confuzzled

    I think we should all be sure to enter her new contest for a chance (doesn’t say anyone will win) to win a (probably non-existent) prize basket. Oooh, yep trying for that prize!

  • Chris Jones

    So…. I think I can play the role of the dark knight here. After reading some of this stuff these people write in response to being outed, it is all the same. It could all be solved with a simple 3 step process, apologize, pay, fix yourself and never do it again. The problem lies when people try to weasel their way out of being wrong. People make mistakes, people mess up, but with a kick in the a$$ with the boot of humility, it is an ample time to take a step back and have a good self evaluation, Heck, pay money to be evaluated like I did. Never know what is inside that makes you do the things you do and you never know you have areas you can improve upon unless there is intervention. If you are reading this, take it from me.

        Thank you so much @Kym Zwick:disqus. I figure I can at least try to help people learn from my mistakes.

  • KimJ

    Compulsive lying is a addiction, like alcoholics, and the first step to recovery is admitting what you have done. A few pages back one photographer/blogger finally admitted and did the right thing. Pity we can’t get her to talk some sense into Aries or Tasha or what ever she goes by

    • Joseph Philbert

      compulsive liar is a very very scary person. They will see a video of them doing the deed and still say it was not them.

      • KimJ

        I know, and she can see the proof that the photos were stolen but still won’t admit it and come clean. Rather play the blame game.

        • Norman Beer

          And STILL has a stolen image on her page!

          • KimJ

            That is just f’ing stupid. I am betting she is going to blame one of her photographers for that or that her account was hacked. Wait, what was the excuse she used for Twitter – I didn’t know that I had a Twitter account.

          • Norman Beer

            Look at the blame and BS involving the blogs and websites.

  • doncalifornia

    All I know, without scrolling, is that to get 700 comments in 24 hours, she has to be lying and denying. Aries you are just making this worse and worse and worse for yourself.

  • Joseph Philbert

    She is deleting comments on the Fanpage.
    I dont get it if she removed the stolen image of the baby it would stop. Why hold on to something the is clearly not yours.

  • captain-confuzzled

    so, just adding a piece to the puzzle. Aries and Tasha share children, photos of themselves and also their cell phone. Both Charming Photos and Crochet Creations list the same phone number on their FB page and it comes back in search as a “mobile”. Wow sharing a cell phone, awww, such a beautiful close relationship they have

    • Norman Beer

      Perhaps you’d get a response on her review if you asked it there. Besides, it’s a party over there!

        thanks for posting the question there!

    • Norman Beer

      Side by side:

      • peaceetc

        Am I right that this phone number is a mobile? No, I haven’t tried calling it, that’s just what the Google shows.

        • noname required

          Called. No answer and no greeting. Says voice-mail not set up. Great for business I’m sure! This person is seriously messed up. My thoughts are that no matter what is written here, it will not hurt her/them because there is not a real business here, just a figment of someone’s imagination online.

          • Lindsay11

            So I can’t mention that her public records are public without you harassing me, but you are gonna call this number this early in the morning, let alone at all? SMH

          • noname required

            I did not say when I called it, you are assuming I called it early am. I believe if I did call it now it would be 8am in WV. That’s not early, especially for someone with kids. Now where I am, it is early!
            Why not call? Was curious to see which business or name would be in the greeting.

          • Lindsay11

            You’re right, I assumed you called now since you posted about it now. I’d say 8am is early, kids or no, especially to be receiving calls from strangers on the internet.
            Why not post that public records are public?

            Also do you notice how I didn’t attack you or mention your dirty laundry? That’s how things are done around here and I’m asking you to give me the same respect.

          • noname required

            I had just jumped in on the conversation and my eyes saw your post about the kid’s birth records and without looking/scrolling further, I commented. Not a fan of bringing innocent children into an online mess. At the time, I felt there shouldn’t have been mention of the kids at all. After reading further, I see that Aries actually brought them up first. Whoever brought them into it, somethings should be off limits.

          • Lindsay11

            Yes, she absolutely shouldn’t have brought her kids into this. She did it first. I brought up that public records existed. I’m glad you understand what happened and I assume are done attacking me.

            Now would you like to apologize for attacking me, insulting me and implying you were my mother in law? (lol I’m trying to make a joke because this is silly and I’d like it to be over)

          • noname required

            It’s over! I thought I did apologize already, but in case you missed it, I most humbly apologize. 🙂 Jokes and laughter most welcomed!

          • Lindsay11

            Thank you for that. I do appreciate it.

          • noname required

            Crap, you had to remind me of all the laundry I need to do today! 🙂

          • KimJ

            Does she think that after a good nights sleep it will all be gone. She is going to hit the roof when she sees the comments on her other business page

            But which personality is going to reply? Aries or Tasha?

          • KimJ

            Maybe we will have a new one. The mentor

          • Helena

            Or another completely new figment of her imagination?

          • Lindsay11

            We have Aries, Tasha is close to Taurus so I say… Cancer!

            I never call an outed photographer.

            Probably bad decision, but just had to know what the greeting would say. Unfortunately, no greeting.

            Oooh you had better be careful because over night , on a long weekend, she has her lawyers tracking all of us down for harassment. https://www.facebook.com/norman.beer/activity/10202785427051611?comment_id=10202790949389666&offset=0&total_comments=47&ref=notif&notif_t=open_graph_action_comment_reply

          • KimJ

            and …

          • It wasn’t me but when did calling a business number become harassment?

            Also, 8 am, while a smidgen early, isn’t ridiculous like in the middle of the night.

            It’s nice to know that she would consider a potential client calling at 8 am harassment.

            Finally the Facebook page says they are always open … while it is reasonable to expect them to be closed in the dead of night, it doesn’t state what time they open for business … 8 am isn’t ridiculous.

          • BullShite

            Oh noooooes!!!!
            Her photo business must be doing GREAT to not only pay lawyers to work on holiday weekends, but to TRACK DOWN individuals that have “harassed” her!

            How were the photos stolen? As in physically you no longer have the RAW files or they’ve been displayed without your permission?

          • Helena,
            First,HI.By that question,they are DL it by my page & I can see it on every SNS by the web.They never,ever asked permission.Not at all.Remember Earth Day there in the US? Google+ & Time magazine had this coolaraboration & an online event.I participated for that & lucky,2 pictures of mine was selected by Time magazine.It was by NASDAQ Billboard,Apr.22nd along other 16 winner of the said event.Then problems arised.All my images are being used by different names claiming their as their own.Sorry for them I have all the images & details for that.I had it backup.I am on G+ for almost 4 years & I had never,ever had such problems jux that Time issue went out & my name went out virally too.Now,Google is trying to something about my said problems,not only for me but for other photographers as well.I had cyber bullying,harassment, & for reasons I dnt know,I was being blocked by communities by the japan side & US as well.Anyway,atm,I am limiting my post,all taken pictures even from the past will be turned into video,I also disable resharing too.I dont have any other choice until my lawyers,both in Japan & US side,I a safe in G+ & my pictures too.Thank you veru much for yur concern.Regards then.
            cjs

          • Big Ron

            How are images “missing” from G+? That doesn’t make any sense. Images are only missing when they are taken down. And you had 11,000 images posted on G+? I think you should just let your lawyers handle this one. Good luck.

          • Big Ron,yes I do have lawyers.Both in Japan & in the US side.
            Anyway,I retrieve all my pictures w/a help of a special friend.Well ‘missing’is they DLoading it & claiming as their own in different SNS.I even dont rust Picasa too.As far I am concern,I have all the proofs & details to all pictures I took.4 years of hard work & staying in G+.Before,I dont hve any problems at all until that Earth Day online event came along.Then the problem & bashing,DLoading,stealing are done. so far,My lawyers are really handling this matter very carefully even for Google Team too.Thank you for the wishes but I know justice wont fail me.
            Thank you so much & Regards.
            cjs

          • Justin Case,Honestly, I dont know this ‘charming photos’.Even I hve a Face Book account,never heard of them.I am only in Face Book for connection to my family,friends,thats all.For my pictures,its by Google+ & Picasa but past weeks,Picasa is messing up & I dont trust them anymore.
            When I saw some images of mine in different communities by Face Book,I do report it at once even I am in mobile or tablets.
            Atm,I leave the rest to my lawyers to have my own peace of mind.I am also limiting my post,disabling reshare too.
            Thank you for the concern & Regards then.
            cjs

      • Joseph Philbert ?????

    • Post low resolution images and watermark them in a way that makes it difficult for thieves to remove the watermark.

      Sure, slapping a huge ugly watermark over important parts of the image is annoying but It’s the only way to deter the thieves.

      • Eric Lefebvre,Thank you so much for the advice but since I was in G+ for almost 4 years,i never,ever put watermarks on my images.I even dont process them.Its all raw & straight from my mobile,tablets & Ipad Air.I never missed any single moment that I want to share here inside Japan.
        But anyway,alot of my G+ers friends are telling me that too.I decided to limit my post,disable reshare & all my taken pictures will be in video.I have no choice at the moment but this until my lawyers,both in Japan & US side,says the GO signal.
        Again,I really appreciate your concern & advice.Thank you so much & More power.

  • LoLTonelica

    Does anyone else find it suspect that Tasha, whom I’m sure would be furious if she does truly exist, has not come here to defend herself? Seems like someone is trying to avoid some rather embarrassing IP address information…

    • Joseph Philbert

      Tasha is a failed attempt at an alias..

      • Lindsay11

        I think Aries is the alias. Who can keep track anymore?

  • Lindsay11

    Here is “Tasha” linking to “Aries'” personal blog from her photography facebook page. I really find it sad that she’s just talking to herself and her separate personalities over multiple pages. There’s just no activity on any of her pages.

    • BullShite

      It never ceases to weird me out when they do the whole talking publicly to themselves thing.

      • Lindsay11

        Lindsay thinks so too! 😉

        In fact, maybe we should all be talking to ourselves, it’s probably fun.

      Um, no that was me linking my blog to my business page upon request of the company i visited that day. Nice try tho

  • Lindsay11

    Oh c’mon guys we knew plagiarism was in there somewhere, didn’t we? This all comes from http://www.pinkypromise.me/sessions

    • KimJ

      OMG this never ends. Hey steal the photos might as well steal the words.

  • Justin Case
    • Lindsay11

      I don’t think I’ve seen the linkedin one before, but who can keep track of all this?? It is so sad that she’s been in business for 2 years and she doesn’t have a single endorsement. (Not even by her “partners” or “assistants” or split personalities??) I really think we just destroyed her fantasy world and this is why she’s reacting the way she is.

      • KimJ

        But you have it wrong. There are more than one , come now keep up 🙂 IT seems like they have a few from what she makes it out to be.

        • Lindsay11

          Oh man I can’t keep up and I’m really trying. To bad it’s not a holiday again.

  • KimJ

    So let me get this right. She does have kids?

    • Justin Case

      no, but she is genetically related to her imaginary ‘photographer’s’ offspring.

      • Aries

        I am not related to them in any way, I am very good friends with her and have watched her children grow up. We have no blood relation at all.

        • captain-confuzzled

          who’s children exactly? Aries? Tasha?

          • Aries

            I am unable to have children, I will not keep repeating myself on this subject! I DO NOT AND CANNOT HAVE CHILDREN! Thank you all for the painful reminder of the numerous failed pregnancies I have gone through. Tasha has 2 children, not me.

          • noname required

            Oh, this is Aries. Remember? She already told us she can’t have kids. Hi ARIES!

    • Norman Beer

      Based on this it looks like she wants us to think two people are using the Aries account.
      Ooh, FBI! I wonder if it’s someone I know or have worked with?

      • Justin Case

        HAHAHAHAH! Yay! The F…B….I ! Can’t wait! Hope they show up with their battering ram and cool blue jackets! Send them my way, you can get my address from your friends at the NSA… or have the CIA pilot a drone on up my way!

      • BullShite

        The pattern never changes.

    Picture from her Bookfresh page; number search; schedule:

    • KimJ

      She told me that she didn’t have a twitter account and where is Tasha – she is the only employee listed.

      • Norman Beer

        The page even links the Twitter account:

        • KimJ

          I know and she told me she doesn’t have a twitter account. Just stop with the lies!!!

          • Aries

            I said I didn’t realize I had one, learn to read correctly please.

          • noname required

            Who the hell is this Susan?

          • KimJ

            Maybe you should learn to read the copyright law correctly! Thief

    • Joseph Philbert

      So I don’t think someone would use a alias/pen name in such a way

      • Norman Beer

        Exactly but on the FB thread she says she does.

  • KimJ

    Well she has just made a boo boo. Isn’t she posting as Tasha? so why would she talk about herself in the 3rd person?

    • Joseph Philbert

      She can’t get her facts straight..

      • Justin Case

        you mean ‘they’ can’t get their ‘reality’ straight. 😉

    • BullShite

      I try to think about what I would do if this was ME in a situation like this… and all I can think of is that I would delete all of the profiles, delete it all, write apologies and disappear for a few years… this chick fights on with this delusion to the bitter end.

      This kind of thing never ceases to be completely mind-boggling.

      • Norman Beer

        It’s almost a crazy as Lucy!

        • Helena

          Come on, give Lucie credit, Natasha is completely batshit and at least Lucie has talent.

      • Justin Case

        I think ‘Endless Road’ likely took the best path: take it ALL down, don’t even TRY to fight it, and pray that only your business is ruined, not your name and reputation. And those are the one’s I actually have hope for, since they are obviously ashamed and want as few people to know as possible, this may actually keep them from going down this route again.

  • Justin Case
    • Lindsay11

      She “manages” J-Tron’s page.

      • Justin Case

        maybe that’s why his website is down?

  • Justin Case
    • Norman Beer

      Doubt it!

    • Norman Beer

      Did she pull this page or just block me?
      https://www.facebook.com/MommaWile

      • Lindsay11

        I still see a page. You got her so hard on Aries Lanna I just read it and I am laughing so damn hard.

        • Helena

          Yeah, that was a beautiful thing. She took the picture, 7 years ago, when 7 years ago, Natasha lived in a different state? Derp!

          • Aries

            Yes its called I travel for paying clients. 7 years ago Tasha was still in high school and I did her senior session for her.

      • Lindsay11

        Everyone should get to enjoy this as much as I am.

        • Joseph Philbert

          Omg she is an idiot..

          • Norman Beer

            Yup!

          • Lindsay11

            Is an idiot a worse quantity than a dumbass? Do we have a sliding scale? What does Aries/Tasha rank at now?

        • susan

          Perfect! People who commit crimes usually get caught because they’re stupid. I’d bet she has a criminal record under one of those names.

      • Helena

        I can’t see it either. I imagine it’s Blocksville for us. Maybe that’s next to Marietta, OH? 😉

      • Joseph Philbert

        I can see it still

        • Norman Beer

          Now she blocked me on this one too: https://www.facebook.com/aries.lanna.9

          • Joseph Philbert

            I am now blocked also … but its pointless since I can just logoff and see her account anyway (it being public and all) LOL
            Or login with my backup account 🙂

  • Big Ron

    Okay, someone has to do this and I just don’t have time, buried in editing right now. I’ve been dying to take one of our pictures of her, put her in a workshop titled “How to Steal Photos and Make Them Your Own”, and then submit it for her funny pictures, but be sure to reply to her latest post about the contest so everyone can see it for awhile. Well, the “everyone” would be us cuz she doesn’t have any clients that I can see.

  • Helena

    Permission for all the photographs you say? From photographers or their clients? I take it that didn’t extend to bloggers who take photographs of their own children?

    • Lindsay11

      I haven’t understood this lie of hers AT ALL. Did she think the original photographers wouldn’t find this out? That they didn’t care? Did she not realize the original photographers sent this info to PS?

  • Justin Case

    So, just so we are all up to speed:

    Charming Photos belongs to ARIES LANNA aka ARIES “LANNA” THOMPSON aka MOMMAWILE aka TASHA WILE aka NATASHA ELIZABETH WILE aka TOBIAS WEELLACE

    am I all up to date?

    • Norman Beer

      Close enough… 🙂

    • Joseph Philbert

      Yeap it’s pretty accurate ..

    • susan

      I believe there is one more, with another alias or real name?

      • Norman Beer

        That’s her. What’s the URL?

    • Aries

      Nope, I am NOT Tasha, she works for me and it would be a little hard for me to be in 2 different STATES at the same time, so try again 🙂

      • Norman Beer

        Really? Then WHY does the phone number come back to the same pace.
        Also, you have been given an easy out. WHY do you choose to take the more difficult road?

        • aries

          Its not a home number moron, my home number starts with 740 dumbass

          • Norman Beer

            The person that called this morning called Tasha, yet YOU claim they called you. So what state are you in?

          • Photo Stealers

            Because it’s so terribly difficult to go from WV to Ohio when you live on the border? LOL

          • Aries

            I don’t live on the border of another state, but nice try 🙂

          • Photo Stealers

            Cross Lanes is near the border of Ohio.

          • Aries

            I do not live near the border of any other state and if you have READ the comments from yesterday I have already said that I do not post my CURRENT address online, thats just asking for idiots to show up at your door. So keep trying!

          • Norman Beer

            Except we know where you are now posting from… DOH!

          • Aries

            Do you really think I am this stupid? You cannot find my legal name, actual address, anything…but you think I am stupid enough to not move my IP? You are as stupid as you believe I am if so.

          • Photo Stealers

            Well, that makes a whole lot of sense for someone to advertise in a different area than which they live for photography. Even if you don’t live in Cross Lanes, you are posting from WV per your IP address.

          • Aries

            I advertise in an area that ONE of my buildings is in. I have 2 studios, hence why I hired another photographer. I know I am posting from one, its called free wi-fi near my sisters house, your point?

          • Aries

            They called the BUSINESS number dumbass, I know what number was called and the number that called it because SHE called me to let me know this morning so I could pass the information along to my attorney. It is a number that WE share for business stuff. Do you honestly think I am dumb enough to give you information that you are too stupid to find yourself? Sorry to bust your bubble but I am not stupid. If you don’t know what state I reside in, that means I have done my job correctly in keeping my personal information OFF the internet as much as possible. Here is another question, how is it she and I were born in 2 different countries yet are the same person?

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, we know EXACTLY where you are posting from. It’s amazing the information that’s on the internet. Most of which you did yourself!

          • Aries

            Its also amazing that I am posting from a free wi-fi spot because once again I am not as dumb as you seem to assume I am. IShould I let the manager know the police will be showing up? Oh wait thats right, you cant actually do anything about it, so sorry

          • Norman Beer

            So you’re admitting that you are using a free hotspot for the furtherance of illegal activity?

          • Aries

            I am doing nothing illegal, I am using a free hotspot to catch up on some editing while my nephew finishes his lunch before we head ot the park. I am not sure what part of any of that includes anything illegal, so now.

          • Norman Beer

            Furtherance of the already illegal activity of fraud and image theft.

          • Aries

            Not furthering anything, because there is nothing illegal going on, if so police would have been at my door already considering the station is less than a block away from my home.

          • Norman Beer

            Have you called your FBI friend and asked them? Doubt it!

          • Aries

            Nope, I have been assured that my attorney and state police are the only ones that I needed to notify about the current situation.

          • Norman Beer

            Then where are they? Why have they not taken down this blog? Why have they not called me or my attorney?

          • Aries

            Its a public forum, there is nothing illegal about it and it cannot be removed without court order or the creator taking it down. I am not going to ask my attorney to call you because there is no reason to waste his time. I did nothing to you. He is not going to call your attorney for the same reasons I just stated, there is no reason and I will not make him waste his time on you.

          • Norman Beer

            It’s because you’ve never told them the truth if you ever called them at all…

          • Aries

            Actually I did, this assumption thing is getting old. Unless you have bugged my house, please do not tell me who I have and have not called. It is childish to assume you are always right and state things as facts that you actually have no info of…

          • Lindsay11

            You sure have a lot of time to argue with Norman but none to apologize to the original photographers who are actually calling their lawyers and suing you. Girl, I am not sure you realize how far you are digging yourself here. I’m begging you to stop.

          • Norman Beer

            You have yet to prove one single point. Until you do, the web will be watching you and keep digging.

          • Aries

            I have nothing to prove. You are the ones looking for something, not me. Keep watching, digging, stalking, whatever makes your life less lonely.

          • Amber Kost

            If she uses Wi-Fi to edit, that s should tell us something about her “professionalism” to begin with. You don’t need internet to run Adobe, but you do for the crap online editing sites…

          • Aries

            I am online while I edit dumbass

          • Amber Kost

            Suuuure *wink*. Looking at your own images, I highly doubt that. And seriously, find a better word. Calling every person a dumbass just shows your immaturity, and limited vocabulary.Better yet, I’ll describe it in a way you might actually understand…”I know you are, but what am I?”

          • Aries

            nah i think ill stick with dumbass

          • Amber Kost

            I agree, stick with what you know. You emulate the word perfectly 🙂

          • Amber Kost

            emmm-you-late….

          • Amber Kost

            And you do it so well lol

          • Lindsay11

            Man, you are dense. When you are in court paying for this please remember this day.

          • Aries

            I will not be, as I have all the proof needed to keep me out of any court and also as I have stated over and over, no one has been able to actually locate my LEGAL name, which according to the courthouse here, is needed to file anything against someone.

          • Norman Beer

            You think FB and your blogs won’t give that up? WOW! Keep dreaming!

          • Norman Beer

            You also just admitted that you are using a fake name to further a crime.

          • Aries

            I have an alias just like many others do, and i am not using it for anything except to protect my identity from people like you which is not illegal.

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, running a business with an alias IS a crime!

          • Aries

            Really, because I asked about it when I applied for my license and was told it was completely fine. The state has BOTH names and they only listed my legal on public documentation. So unless 2 judges, a police officer and 2 attorneys lied to me (highly unlikely), I will take their word over yours 🙂

          • Helena

            Hahaha, if your alias was linked to any business, it would be traceable. It not, because Aries doesn’t exist.
            Jeez, someone call her parents. The address is publicly available.

          • Aries

            I do exsist, you all are just too stupid to ask the right questions to find out my name and too dumb to know where to look for it. Not my fault I am actually smarter than you think 🙂

          • ALP

            Why would a police officer be involved in a civil matter like a business license? Did you ask President Obama too?

          • Aries

            I asked a family member if he knew anything about it, he believed it was fine as long as the courts were made aware of it, and the courts agreed.

          • Norman Beer

            Actually it falls under RICO. Perhaps your ‘friend’ failed to check out that section of the law.

          • Aries

            Again, read the full comment. I TALKED TO 2 JUDGES AND THEY SIGNED SAYING IT WAS OK. Did you get it that time or do I need to type it in smaller words for you

          • Amber Kost

            He believed it was fine? Just like you thought it was fine to steal photos? Damn, they’re breeding!

          • BullShite

            “The Courts”? Since when does a court have ANYTHING to do with getting a business licence or registering a name? It’s a crime to register a business under a false name: PERIOD. For tax reasons alone, let alone everything else.

          • Aries

            My business is registered under my legal name, you know the one i have said over and over no one has figured out yet!

          • BullShite

            I thought that you just said it was ok to run it under an alias according to officials other than Obama?

            See, it’s only a few posts above and you can’t even keep your shit straight!

          • Helena

            Free WiFi spot will still give you an IP that’s traceable to a local area genius. Free WiFi will probably resolve in a trace to the name of the place you’re at. Jesus wept.

          • Aries

            Correct, but I am no where near my home or business so my location is irrelevant

      • Norman Beer

        Why does your attorney not answer any of the claims you say are false?

        • Aries

          On a blog? I dont know, maybe you should call and ask him for me 🙂

          • Norman Beer

            Great! Give me his number!
            What state are you in if you’re not in the same state as Tasha?

          • Aries

            Your so good at digging up info, find it yourself 🙂

          • Norman Beer

            You are so quick to bring up FBI friends and your attorney yet you are afraid to give us their name so we might contact them? WOW! You really are a peach!

          • Aries

            Not afraid, just dont care to hand you things you do not need. If you really want it, find it yourself. If you are going to bug me I am going to make you work for it, its a simple concept.

          • Justin Case

            we are pretty good, but it would actually take telekinetic powers to dig into your imaginary world where you have lawyers and FBI agents in your rolodex.

      • Lindsay11

        Wait, who is Susan? Are we throwing a new name into this?

        • Norman Beer

          Refresh. It’s a Discus error.

          • Lindsay11

            Oh wow. You are right. Can you blame me though?

      • Lindsay11

        Why aren’t you or Tasha or whatever personality you want to be responding to the photographers who have posted here?

        • Aries

          Its called living in america and having the freedom to choose which idiotic posts I respond to and which ones I ignore. Also, because I dont have the time to read all the comments or give a fuck how other feel. I have a life and business to run 🙂

  • Anyone know a good copyright lawyer, she’s stolen at least two of my photos that I have found so far and is still using them on her personal page.

    • Lindsay11

      I am sorry that happened to you. Here is a good place to start. http://www.photoattorney.com/?p=515

    • Helena

      Eurgh. So sorry. I can’t help as I’m in the wrong country but please let us know how it goes.

    • Joseph Philbert

      I am assuming you are one of the photographers that gave her permission to use those images #sarcasm

    • Joseph Philbert

      I am out of the office but when I get back I will lest a few.

    • Norman Beer

      Have you reported her to FB?

    • V

      I’m curious, aside from all of the bluster from the various names Tasha/Aries/Etc, what do you have to say for yourself, when in fact the true & legitimate photographer who took the above images straight up says you stole them from their portfolio? Can you even respond to this, or is it more deflect, ignore, dismiss?

      • Aries

        I have nothing else to say, thanks for asking tho 🙂

        • V

          So you’re perfectly OK with having stolen these (and more) images from other legitimate photographers. And you think it’s every one else here who has a problem?

          • Aries

            I am not ok with something that I did not so, and I think there are a few overly obsessed people with too much time on their hands here.

          • V

            So if “you” didn’t steal them for “your” website, who did? It isn’t “your” work, can you at least admit that?

          • Norman Beer

            Exactly!

          • Aries

            I already said they were not mine, I got permission from people who said they had the copyrights to them. Pay attention, geesh!

          • V

            How about YOU pay attention. Do you not see the photographer above saying very directly her images were used, BY YOU, WITHOUT HER PERMISSION. Are you saying she’s lying and gave you permission?

          • Helena

            Yes this.

          • Aries

            No I am saying someone who owns a copy of it gave me permission.

          • V

            “Someone” who owns a copy gave you permission to pass off another photographer’s work as your own (we’ll just ignore the sheer ignorance of this concept) is your position. Now, what do you say to Chi Pritchard, the true & legitimate owner of those images who says you stole them? Have you even had the decency, after using her work as your own, to contact her directly and tell her from whom you “legally” purchased the rights to this image from?

          • Aries

            I have not been contacted and asked who gave me the permissions of any of the images and at this point it would be too late to do so.

          • Norman Beer

            Why is that?

          • Aries

            Because I said so

          • Norman Beer

            You sound like a three year old!

          • Aries

            And you sound like a grumpy old man, your point?

          • V

            So, you haven’t had the decency to contact Chi, when she has been clear about you stealing her work and passing it off as your own, to tell her why you don’t think it’s theft. In fact, you appear to think it’s her job to contact you to let you prove it was ok to steal her work. Got it. At some point, you really should take off the defense armor & realize what you’ve done, and the perpetual refusal to admit your mistakes is exactly what keeps discussions like this going. You defiance, even in the face of cold hard indisputable facts simply rallies those offended by the arrogance to right this wrong. It’s obvious to all, you are wrong.

          • Amber Kost

            Oh, but I thought they had to come to her? Remember, it’s everyone else’s fault. The original photographer should have been farting unicorns in a private message to her, not demanding she take THEIR work down. Pay attention 😉

          • ALP

            Owning “a copy” doesn’t mean they have permission to let you use it. But once again, your defense of stealing is LYING to clients. So whatever.

          • Aries

            My clients were aware that those images were for ideas only and were not my work, so try again.

          • Helena

            Is that why you stuck massive copyright notices over them?

          • ALP

            Um, not according to the screen caps above, which include your watermark on stolen photos. And if you’re so awesome and busy, why not use your ACTUAL work to inspire clients? I don’t have a single photo on my website that I or my husband didn’t take, including the photos of us on the about page.

          • Lindsay11

            Even if your clients thought that, it was against the law. It’s called stealing.

          • Helena

            NO YOU DID NOT!

          • Aries

            I’m sorry, where you there? If not, then do not tell me what I did or did not do. Thank you

          • Helena

            It’s always Autumn has already confirmed that you did not have permission to use a picture she took of HER CHILD which was posted as your cover photo TODAY. Photographers are coming forward all the time and you are just pissing them off. Give up!

          • Aries

            Give up what? I am not the one digging and accusing.

          • Norman Beer

            You are the one that stole images.

          • Helena

            Give up and admit that you and/or your business partner/whoever stole photos without the copyright holder’s permission.

          • Amber Kost

            The delusions have long since set in…

        • captain-confuzzled

          so interesting the point at which you get silent. This is the meat of the whole issue, yet now you have nothing to say. jeez

          • Aries

            Not silent, I responeded. I was asked a question and I answered, I am not seeing how that is silents.

          • Norman Beer

            You have not answered with any proof.

          • Aries

            I do not need to, you are not the ones I answer too.

          • noname required

            ‘silence’ not ‘silents’ Who’s the Dumbass?

          • Norman Beer

            She knows she is wrong and trying to deflect. It’s a classic response to guilt.

          • Aries

            Not trying to deflect, I was asked a direct question and I have a direct answer.

          • Norman Beer

            Show us the proof you have permission for the color-run image.

          • Aries

            We have been over this norman, I am not showing you anything because I do not owe you anything. I have proof if needed for court, not for you, so stop asking.

          • Norman Beer

            You were asked HERE by the photographer that took it and have yet to respond to that. You DO owe them an answer!

          • Aries

            No actually I do not. If they had come to me in a professional manner, and privately about the matter I would have resolved it quickly and given them proof of where i purchased a copy of this image. However, since they have decided to act like juvenile brats and make a blog/page/whatever the fuck this is about it, I owe them nothing.

          • Norman Beer

            They DID come to you but you blocked them That’s the unprofessional manner.

          • Aries

            No actually they did not, the ONLY people who came to me were clients of photographers and random people (NONE saying they were photographers of hte images) and NONE Messaged me in private about it or acted in the least bit professional, so again I owe them nothing. I will not apologize to people who act unprofessionally toward me then DEMAND an apology, thats not how it works with me, so get over it

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, there is proof they did. Either way, the images belong to them. They have NO obligation to come to you privately. They can come to you however they want and you have to accept that.

          • Aries

            And i have NO obligation to give them answers or apologize. They can come to me however they want and I can respond however I want and they have to accept that.

          • Amber Kost

            Wait, so they are required to act professional, but you aren’t? Time to get off your pretty princess pedestal, sweetheart

          • Aries

            No one is required to act a specific way. I however do get to choose whose actions I respond to.

          • Norman Beer

            Yes, so do the photographers you stole from. AND based on your responses get to decide how they want to go after you and for how much.

          • Norman Beer

            What about this?

          • Marc W.

            Anyone else getting the “NO I WILL NOT” hissy-fit act kids do to their parents in supermarkets.

          • Aries

            thats kind of the point

          • Aries

            What about what?

          • Norman Beer

            You claim you were not contacted. THIS was your contact!

          • Aries

            I said I was not contacted in a professional manner, this is not professional in any form.

          • Norman Beer

            The court won’t care HOW you were contacted. Only your ego cares about that.

          • Aries

            The court doesnt care if I apologize or not either, only you idiots do.

          • Norman Beer

            Actually, the court takes that into consideration. But I guess you’ve never watched TV.

          • Aries

            No i dont like TV all that much, I prefer to read books instead of watching “reality” shows.

          • Norman Beer

            That explains why you are living in an alternate reality.

          • Helena

            Neither is using images that weren’t yours to represent your business. Or deleting the comments challenging your behaviour. Or refusing to remove the copyright infringed material. You are the one who has been unprofessional.

          • V

            That you expect photographers, whose work you stole and passed off as your own, to contact you in a specified manner YOU deem appropriate or “you owe them nothing” is hardly a proper defense, let alone decent. This behavior is horrifying.

          • BullShite

            So you realize you are posting as “V” now, and not “Aries” right?

          • V

            No, I am V, certainly NOT aries/tasha etal. West coast based.

          • peaceetc

            You really are delusional, aren’t you? You don’t get to choose the method of contact. Just because someone isn’t playing by your own rules doesn’t mean you get to do whatever the hell you want. Grow up, Aries. Seriously.

          • Kym Zwick

            So, if a burglar broke into your house, stole your property, all you have to do is call the burglar and ask nicely to have it back?? Really?? You’re so clueless….

          • Just a Girl

            Are you really this ignorant? The real Photographers owe you nothing! You stole their work, changed it and choose to live in some sick fantasy world over it! Pretty soon you will be owing them a lot!

          • Aries

            I never said they did, I do get to choose who I respond to however and I choose not to respond to unprofessional people.

          • Helena

            Yes you did. “However, since they have decided to act like juvenile brats and make a blog/page/whatever the fuck this is about it, I owe them nothing.”

          • Amber Kost

            At least she admits that she’s likely to end up in court for this!

          • Aries

            Yep, long enough to hand over my evidence, watch the judge roll his eyes and be told I can leave.

          • Norman Beer

            Wow, what an altered universe you must live in!

          • Helena

            Proof that as yet you have not been able to produce to make all this go away. You are full of shit.

          • Norman Beer

            Proof that you already said is gone and too late to obtain.

          • peaceetc

            So here’s a question. Assuming you did actually obtain permission to use that image (and that’s a huge assumption), has it occurred to you the person from whom you obtained permission might not have had the legal right to give you that permission? If that’s the case, then all your smugness and proof won’t help you. It’s like buying a stolen item — you don’t get to keep it just because you didn’t know it was stolen.

          • Amber Kost

            You have a direct NON answer, which isn’t good enough. If your own work didn’t suck so bad, you’d probably be very upset if someone stole them for profit.

          • Aries

            I give my clients what they ask for, so your opinion of my work is void. I have had people steal my images actually, and I have sued for it so I know how all this works.

          • peaceetc

            Aries, that’s just stupid. Really, it is. People who actually own the images you’ve used have said you stole them. You can pretend all you want, but it doesn’t change reality. Your opinion is the one that’s void.

          • kyphotog

            No one has ever stolen your images. Your images are just terrible. If anyone is going to still they’ll do what you did….steal from someone a lot better.

          • Amber Kost

            I understand, as I get quite a few requests for mediocre crap all the time #sarcasm

    • Try Carolyn Wright of photoattorney.com she SPECIALIZES in copyright law … if she isn’t licensed for this state then she may be able to refer you to someone.

      http://www.photoattorney.com/

    • BullShite

      Oh please, please, please for the love of Photog, sue her. It’s the only way to get these whack-jobs to stop!

      • Aries

        They need my legal name first…

        • Norman Beer

          Actually they don’t. Not in any jurisdiction in this country. Perhaps your attorney forgot to mention that…

        • BullShite

          LOL. Your legal name has already been posted, you can be looked up using your phone number, and you DO know what a “whois” and an “I.P./ISP” are right? You are incredibly traceable.

          • Aries

            Actually it hasnt, the name you all think is my name, which is incorrect, has been posted. Mine however has not, nice fail tho

          • BullShite

            Oh yes of course. How silly of me Aries/Tasha/V… how silly. Totally not you, how foolish of us to think that we could break your ever careful abilities to hide completely. It was very clever leading us all to believe you were one person! You never cease to pull the wool over our eyes!

        • Lindsay11

          Are you seriously taunting the photographers who you stole from?

    • Norman Beer

      Heck, just get your attorney to file a C&D with her ISP. If you need her IP send PS a PM.

      • Aries

        Yep get the IP that will lead you directly to the McD down the street from my sisters and also her laptop 🙂

        • peaceetc

          So that’s what you focus on? What about the person claiming you used her image illegally? Just because you may not use your real name, it does not mean you aren’t going to be held liable. There are ways of finding out who you really are. Far smarter people than you have been found over and over, so don’t flatter yourself.

          • BullShite

            Or, her “sister” gets tracked, and has no issue giving up her sibling. (LOL)

  • Chris Jones

    This whole thing reminds me of the show Breaking Bad. I think she may be Heisenberg.

    • Lindsay11

      LOL Walt was much much smarter than this.

  • nick

    New post on her page… side-note: I thought she as a dude first time 🙂

    • Aries

      Most people say that about Tasha, I have never heard that about me tho, thats a new one.

      • nick

        I was talking about Tasha, she looks like a dude when I first saw her. Even with the long hair in her old pic below in the comments, she still looked like a man. It’s weird! 🙂

        • Aries

          I think the last one who said something like that said it along the lines of “looks like a 10 yr old boy”. I personally don’t see it but I know she is happy and comfortable with her looks, so thats all that matters. She struggled with her image for a few years and finally embraced it after having her daughters, which is good.

          • Bob

            Fair enough, so why can’t you ’embrace’ that you stole the images, you and ‘Tasha’ are the same person, you don’t have the knowledge nor skill nor the business acument to be charging clients for images, you lied to your clients, you have multiple alias in which you govern multiple businesses and you are not being a good role model to YOUR children. I PITY YOU!!

          • Aries

            Because I didnt, I purchased them and becuase we are not the same person. We live in 2 different states, I know I am talented but I am not that good to be in 2 places at once. I pitty for you pittying non exsistant children.

          • Bob

            You are not talented in the slightest, your pictures are less than amateur. You are not in two different states as provided by the evidence. Just saw ‘your’ picture above, you still look like a man!.Tell
            Dakota Stafford to put the toys down !! 🙂

          • Aries

            Dakota is Tasha boyfriend, not my husband. So tell him yourself

          • bob

            you don’t even have a husband !!

          • Aries

            Really? Thats funny because I have a ring, marriage licence and he is sitting beside of me.

          • peaceetc

            So he’s sitting there with you at the McDonald’s down the street from your sister’s house while you use your sister’s laptop to taunt strangers for hours at a time? Sure, makes sense.

          • BullShite

            I’m sure that in real life he has to have some sort of an inkling of her “illness”. Like I think we’ve seen here before… the family just sort of throws up their hands and turns a blind eye…. HOWEVER, if she is sued, because she is unlicensed, it will be THEIR personal assets together that can be taken, hers and his, so if he knows about this and doesn’t shut her down, he deserves to pay for the results of a lawsuit.

          • Norman Beer

            Exactly, as a married couple HE is responsible for her debts. At at $150,000 per stolen image I’m guessing he won’t be very happy. That doesn’t even include the risk of prison time if he’s involved in any of the fraud or tax evasion.

          • Norman Beer

            Has he been sitting with you since yesterday at the same McD’s? Because your IP hasn’t changed…

          • Amber Kost

            No, he’s been sitting beside of her. Ha

          • Justin Case

            mean, but funny.

            pic

          • Justin Case

            It certainly is. Honesty is a wonderful thing for gaining self-respect. Being able to look yourself in the mirror and really know who you are is a good sign that you’re leading an honest life.

            You really should try it. I promise, it only hurts until you change.

        • Lindsay11

          I mean, c’mon. She is a liar, a thief and a fraud. That’s all we really care about. Her looks, her sexuality, whatever, who cares. I apologize, Tasha/Aries, all we really want to address is theft and lies. That’s it.

          For the record, I think you look adorable. So there.

  • nick

    New post on her page… side-note: I thought she was a dude the first time I saw her! 🙂

    • Joseph Philbert

      Moving … you mean re-branding 😛

      • Aries

        Nope, same name same company no changes except facebook url 🙂 Thank you for stalking my page tho 🙂

        • Norman Beer

          Actually we already know you’ve changed names. Perhaps you haven’t read all of the posts…

          • Aries

            My legal name has never been changed, even when I got married I still kept my maiden name, so that information is incorrect. My company name has never changed, I ran 2 companies (Weddingplanning and Photography) at one time and decided to sell the wedding planning because I did not have time for it.

          • Justin Case

            HAHHAHHAHHHA! That’s really funny. You had a business that was so busy you didn’t have a single Yelp review or date listed?

            Seriously, if you’re going to pretend to be something you’re not, try it with people who aren’t professionals, sweetie.

        • Joseph Philbert

          I only stalk photo thieves website and pages for stolen images other than that you dont exist..

    • Lindsay11

      Her looks don’t have anything to do with this.

  • KP

    Once ‘Aries/Tasha/Santa Claus’ admits that she has stolen these images and apologies for her incompetence. Someone needs to write a report on this madness! 🙂

  • Aries

    Just so this whole “they are the same person” “she has MPD” bullshit stops…here is a picture of me. We are NOT the same person. We live in 2 different states, she has children and i do not, she has a boyfriend and I am happily married to my husband. So stop ASSUMING we are the same person, because we are not!

    • BullShite

      So…. you live in two different states but you post on the same account seconds before and after each other?

      Do. Not. Buy.

      • Aries

        No one said you had to but your perception is not reality.

        • Norman Beer

          Actually, you’ve been really stupid in how you post. But I’m not going to be the one to tell you how or why…
          Technology is a fascinating thing! DOH!

          • Aries

            It is and what is even more fascinating is the ways you can manipulate it 🙂 Doh

          • Norman Beer

            Keep dreaming!

          • Aries

            I prefer to go back to my family, ill talk to you all never 🙂 This has been SO much fun to watch but my attorney and business associates agree that this is pointless and has NOTHING to do with anything. If I were truly in trouble, the police would be here by now, they know where I live and where I work. So good bye all. Have fun with your digging 🙂

          • Helena

            Yes, I imagine you are already well known to the local police.

          • Lindsay11

            Oh yeah, the police have nothing better to do than to show up at the doors of people who steal photos. You are so ridiculous!

            But guess what, the courts will be ruling against you unless you can fix this (and even if you do, you can still be sued so stop the attitude!). Tasha, Aries, I’m almost begging for your own good here, please try to fix this. Take a few moments and look at the hole you’ve dug for yourself. If you can’t stop… well you know, if I were someone who you’ve stolen from, even now, even now after all the lies and ridiculous, I might not sue you. I know! That’s so silly of me. But I’d want to hold out faith that you were a human being who could see the difference from right and wrong. You have kids, you wouldn’t want to see their images stolen, how can you keep lying and stealing other children’s images?

            Let us just fess up and see where that gets you. Really, let’s try. If you really have a lawyer they would probably tell you not to say anything but … let’s just at least start from a place of reality. Is that too much to ask?

            You can do this.

        • BullShite

          That isn’t an answer. How is it the two of you are separated by cities, yet you are posting on the same account, minutes after each other? There are plenty of screen-grabs around of that.

          You cling so hard to something that does not exist….

        • Norman Beer

          The problem with perception is YOU have to overcome the perception of the world now based on your handling of this situation. Again, had you done the right thing from the beginning none of this would have happened.
          I have to ask, why are you so willing to give up control to Tasha? Why are you letting her make all of the corporate decisions? Be your public face?

    • Helena

      So now there are two criminals. Congrats!

      • Aries

        If I am a criminal, where are the police?

        • Bob

          GREAT LOGIC ! Please inform all criminals that they are no longer committing a crime. As long as the police don’t catch on to you, you are innocent. Even with the vast amount of evidence above!

          • Aries

            “Innocent until proven guilty in a court of law”

          • Helena

            And they will look at this, and that guilty verdict is going to be somewhat swift.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            She’s really digging herself deeper by posting here. Her IP is logged and I’m sure that will come in handy at a later date with everything else that has been uncovered and saved as proof.

          • Helena

            She must be the craziest yet?

          • Just a Girl

            Ya think!?!?

          • Joseph Philbert

            With all the evidence against you … jury/judge will have not problem awarding the copyright infringement on you easy.

            I mean why are you still using this image?!>!>!>
            Its not even yours.

          • Justin Case

            says who? According to the constitution, I am allowed to call you anything I like, as long as I believe it to be true. And you have proven time and again in the past 48 hours that you are a fraud and a liar. You have even admitted it: using a ‘pen name’ to conduct business is FRAUD, not artistic license.

          • Norman Beer

            It falls under RICO and is punishable by prison. IF her ‘husband’ (or partner) knew about it or participated, he could end up in prison as well.

        • Helena

          Well you’re definitely committing fraud so yeah, I hope someone does report you.

        • Kym Zwick

          Lady, you really have no clue who you are messing with… YOU WILL LOSE this game!!!! Photographers do not take this matter lightly… (Maybe if you were one, you’d understand)…

            “Maybe if you were one, you’d understand”
            best line yet.

        Thanks, i think. I have image issues that I am working through and so I use pictures I have taken to show off my owrk instead of seeing a reminder of those issues everything I log into facebook.

            is that really not her pic? or are you just following the trend of the posts :p

          • Norman Beer

            The baby is stolen from a blog, who by the way IS going after her!

          • Amber Kost

            I hope so! If she isn’t dragged to court for her actions, her responses and attitude here prove that she has no remorse, and will just do it again after her ‘rebrand’

          • Marc W.

            And the FP page seems to be down now. Not sure if it’s because FB took it down due to the infringement or the OP took it down. I bet she’ll claim she did it because she’s moving and needs to put a new address on there.

          • peaceetc

            Good. Her smug attitude needs take down a bunch of notches.

          • captain-confuzzled

            lol thanks – totally get that you wouldn’t trust anyone here, but you might be surprised at how really nice some of the folks that post here are.

          • Aries

            Doubtful, considering people cant seem to even grasp that I am not my employee, let alone how to act professional,I do not trust anyone in here. I have no reason to

          • captain-confuzzled

            understood

          • Aries

            Sorry, but if you read all the comments and had seen some of hte stuf left on my business page and a couple private messages I received, you would probably understand why. Reguardless of my actions (right or wrong), the way I have been treated the past few days shows me more than enough evidence that I should not trust anyone. I feel like I am being bullied by people who I didnt even do anything to (not talking about the photograhers, only the ones who have NOTHING in this battle).

          • Norman Beer

            Except this started MONTHS ago and it was YOUR actions that got YOU to this place. Had you done the right thing back then you would never have gotten to this page at all. But your failure to act professionally is what caused all of this.

          • V

            It only escalates when a) you choose to steal to begin with & b) choose to ignore/deflect/deny when caught. Had you avoided either a and/or b, this discussion wouldn’t happen. You should read prior people who were caught stealing, immediately apologized & changed, and what happened with them. It those of you that refuse to admit, change, etc, that go on the offense and have the temerity to blame those that have caught you that tend to unite people in righting a wrong. You are in this position right now because of you’re own actions. You’ll stay in this position as long as you choose.

          • Norman Beer

            People have tried to tell her that from the beginning but her ego has gotten in the way and now she feels she has to continue the lies to safe face.

          • BullShite

            You steal photos, plagiarize text, claim to be multiple people (see you are using the V account now, not Aries) yet you are the one complaining about “trust”. Amazing.

          • V

            Bull, what do you mean by using the “V” account? I am an entirely different, thankfully, person, that is ever bit appalled by aries/tasha/etc. PS can confirm we do NOT have the same IP.

          • Norman Beer

            It’s a Discus glitch.

          • BullShite

            Weird!

          • V

            That is completely bizarre, Bull. I can see why you were perplexed.

          • It’s a problem with Disqus … its buggy as all hells. the wrong name thing gets fixed on a page refresh usually.

          • @V @pakefrofile:disqus, was probably a disqus glitch.

          • Aries

            I am not V, if you had been paying attention someone else already claimed to be that person. so stfu and READ all the comments before you post dumbass

      • Lindsay11

        Five hours later I come across this comment and I sorta want to point it out somehow. This is how photo stealers treat people who come clean and want to apologize. I can see how captain was trying to be fair and help Aries. And she just kept on lying to him.

        (I don’t mean this patronizing, especially not to captain. I just really think that it is worth noting, you know? Do what’s right, remove the photos, apologize, hope you don’t get sued, and maybe you can move on.)

    • Joseph Philbert

      But but … explain to me why you still using this image.

    • doncalifornia

      How is it you both post from the same IP address? I’ll wait while you try to come up with some sort of an answer for that one. This should prove amusing.

  • Popcorn At The Ready

    I’m trying to get caught up with about 200 new messages but I was wondering if it’s been confirmed that the guest account “Aries” is actually her? I know it probably is, but I know Corey Ann will sometimes share that fact.

    Also what is with this registered Aries account commenting? Is that her or someone pretending?
    Finally, what’s the story behind this Tobias Weellace I just heard about?

  • Photo Stealers

    Just putting this out there, while she claims to have been in different places, she’s been on the same IP address for all of her comments on this post. The host is Suddenlink and she’s posting from Charleston, WV.

    • Popcorn At The Ready

      Thank you for addressing this.

    • Helena

      But she’s so clever and fooling us all!

    • Joseph Philbert

      HAHAHAHAH yea the living in two different states just flew out the window.

    • ALP

      Yes, be terrified that we exposed information about someone’s children that was IN PUBLIC RECORDS and posted on public websites by her mother. **sigh**

      • Norman Beer

        Even better, that SHE posted herself!

    • Marc W.

      What program are you using to view this? The web/moble based views of the comments suck. Is this the Admin piece?

      • Norman Beer

        @Marc W.:disqus, you are just not special enough… 🙂

        • Marc W.

          Yeah, I figured.

          • Norman Beer

            But we still love you and you’re special to us!

          • Marc W.

            *le sigh*

  • Bob

    Two different places?

    • Norman Beer

      Exactly. It’s been proven false a number of times…

      • Aries

        Really? So what is my home address and why if my DL one from OH my licence plates from OH, my area code to m HOME phone start with 740…I do not live in or near WV dumbasses

        • Norman Beer

          Then why are you posting from WV?

          • Aries

            Because for the 5th and LAST FUCKING TIME I am NOT at my home, I am with my nephew and husband having a day out. We stopped to get food and I logged on my tablet to edit for a bit and wanted to see how much more stupidity had been posted on here since last night. THAT IS HOW I AM IN WV dumbass

          • Norman Beer

            Then why is EVERY post from you since this started from the exact same IP?

          • Kym Zwick

            DOH… 😛

          • Norman Beer

            But Tasha is in WV! DOH!

          • Norman Beer

            And you don’t live near the border! DOH!

          • Norman Beer

            See how you screwed yourself by stealing images and not doing the right thing when you were first notified? DOH!

          • Amber Kost

            Notice how both aries AND v are so very fond of the term ‘dumbass’…

          • Norman Beer

            Amber, it’s a Discus issue. Refresh your page.

          • Amber Kost

            Hrmmm ok, thanks 🙂

          • Amber Kost

            haha it worked. : p

          • Helena

            You were having a day out yesterday too? In the same place?

          • peaceetc

            No. You said you were on your sister’s laptop, not your tablet. Try again.

          • Helena

            She just can’t keep the story straight.

          • Tamm

            You’ve been in a café for almost three hours to grab a bite before taking your nephew to the park, bet that kid is going crazy waiting on you to edit from your tablet??

          • BullShite

            No, she’s been at McDonalds for three hours if I remember correctly!

          • Norman Beer

            She will return. She can’t resist…

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            She’s been awfully quiet. I wonder if she finally went to the… er… park?

          • Joseph Philbert

            YAWN… the lies are boring now.
            Maybe if you used your smart phone to post it will give a different IP address 😛

          • KimJ

            But wait a second Tasha is spending the day out – so you are with her?

        • Joseph Philbert

          When you get a chance … look up “IP Address” and do some research.
          Then you will realize that every internet user has a unique IP from their ISP that is registered to a town/city/state by law they HAVE to give “Internic” a general location to where that IP Address is located.

          So a cable modem/DSL/Fiber for example goes to a main hub that main hub as a block of assigned addresses that are assisned to each client (you) so it can access the internet. You have one of those addresses from that Hub located somewhere in WV .

          Its impossible for someone in Ohio to have an IP Address of someone in WV … well unless you are very tech savy and we all know you are a “Dumb Ass” 🙂

      • Marc W.

        I blame the moose and squirrel.

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          Sam and Dean Winchester? 🙂

          • Marc W.

            Not sure I get that reference’s connection. (My wife watched that show.)

        • Justin Case

          OK, it took me several hours, but I finally got your reference, Mr Badinoff. (Truly inspired. You’re on a roll today. I love the subtle ones.)

    • Ian G

      Not being American and not fully understanding how US addresses work. I was wondering how many properties would have an address of 5400 Big Tyler Road?
      Looking on street view there is another photographer at a very near address

      Michael Bell Photography
      5402 Big Tyler Rd
      Cross Lanes, WV 25313

      Web site looks honest and been around for some time.
      Is to an idea to drop him an email to see if he has any insight into Charming Photos.
      When I was running my business I knew exactly who was in my market area.

      • Justin Case

        that’s actually quite interesting. I’ll see if Google street view has images…

        • Ian G

          I looked but it looked like a semi rural road to my UK eyes.

      • Lindsay11

        What a fantastic idea.

      • Justin Case

        looks to me completely residential. There is a house for rent about where 5400 would be, but regardless, it’s not a big enough area to not know who your neighbors are if you’re legitimately in the same business.

  • Popcorn At The Ready

    Not sure if anyone mentioned this but it appears her personal profile and photography page are now disabled/deleted. I can’t view either.

    • Norman Beer

      She blocked me long ago so I can’t tell.

    • Amber Kost

      Yep, gone for me too.

    • Bob

      Remember this post before below… she was planning to take it down anyway to set up a new page somewhere else.

      • noname required

        Susan, Aries, Tasha, Jane Doe, Seriously – GET HELP NOW!

        • susan

          Disquis must be messing up. I think I’m the only one posting as Susan. You can see my full name on my posts on the FB thread for this discussion. I dont think I’ve seen any other comments here under the name susan.

          • BullShite

            Even Disquis can’t take the bullshite anymore!

          • Norman Beer

            Bwaaahaaaahaaaahaaa!

          • susan

            Lol

          • noname required

            oops, I kep seeing susan where I earlier saw Aries. Strange!

          • ALP

            I think we broke it. I keep having to use context clues to figure out who is commenting.

      • Popcorn At The Ready

        I completely missed that. Thanks 🙂

      • Marc W.

        Why have a web presence/business when you have to move when anytime someone points out that you did something wrong online.

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          It sure must be upsetting to all of her clients that need to keep in touch.
          *rolls eyes*

      • ALP

        Also, if there was actual “advise” being given by an attorney, he/she would have told Tasha/Aries/Cindy Lou Whoever to IMMEDIATELY stop commenting on this post. She’s dug quite the hole with her claims. And frankly, if a judge were presented with her comments here, any judgment against her would be increased because she’s shown no remorse whatsoever.

        • Norman Beer

          It goes towards her character.
          What was the name and number of that $5 attorney? Perhaps we should give her his info.

          • Amber Kost

            Give her a minute, she’ll need time to steal the info from her other personality…

          • ALP

            What is this character notion you speak of?

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            I just got caught up with the review/Facebook conversation you started. Wow.

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          She just keeps incriminating herself with lies. I will admit that it’s amusing to see her posts and the comments made afterwards.

      • Joseph Philbert

        Big time Entertainment Lawyer must of told her that …. NOT

      • Popcorn At The Ready

        I’m curious as to how many Facebook friends Aries and Tasha have. I had only seen up to two likes on any post and they were always from the same two guys. The majority of her business and personal posts didn’t have any likes and certainly no comments.

        • Amber Kost

          Depends on if you’re also counting in the different personalites…that could add a few friends

    • Joseph Philbert

      Yep I just verified she disabled/deleted her personal account.

      • BullShite

        Well one of them. There is at LEAST two more. 😉

        • Amber Kost

          How many did she start off with? I know of the photography page, personal page, and crochet page. Was there more?

          • BullShite

            She has a few more as Tasha.
            I am wondering if her boyfriend/husband knows that when she is sued, because she is not a licensed business, like an LLC, that “The Courts” can go after his personal assets, as well as hers.

            AGAIN, you would THINK that friends/family would question why she has multiple pages, multiple identities, and has to keep deleting and reopening pages, but my guess is that this is most definitely NOT the first offense, and she’s had to “rebrand” several times…. it’s just the first time she’s been busted on such a large scale.

          • Lindsay11

            Yeah but this one’s significant other seems to post all over the Tasha page and seems to know the main idea of what’s going on.

  • susan

    I found two FB profiles for Tasha Wile. One had the subname Tobias Waaleece (sp?) And the other (with the corset picture) had the subname Diana Tingler. That profile had a friend witj the Tingler name also. Elizbeth i think. Her profile listed a lot more Tinglers. All live in either Ohio (Marrieta) or West Virginia. Parkersburg came up more than a few times. Seems that Aries/Tasha moved from Ohio (where she was with j-tron) to WV. Her own trail of crumbs leads to that. Her Tasha acct with the Tingler name lists State Hospital in New Jersey as location but the pic is def her. Id say it was from a bit earlier in her life. Maybe during the time she describes herself as “doing really bad things?” Anyway the Tingler connection and locations is interesting.

    • Norman Beer

      Picks?
      Links?

      • Helena

        Yeah, me and Norman are blocked. I can’t see nothin’! Hahaha!

      • susan

        Shoot i am on my cell phone now not my desktop. But all I did was a FB search for Tasha Wile and four profiles came up. Two were her.

    • Norman Beer
      • Norman Beer

        Read the details… LOL

  • Tasha

    I would like to formally apologize on behalf of the company for any wrongdoing that has occurred. I was under the impression based on information I was given that all images had been approved for use. I would request that my children’s information be removed, as there is no reason for it to be on this. Any photographer who believes their images was wrongfully obtained may contact me directly for resolution, if possible, to begin. I would also ask that my business be left out of this. I have obtained a written letter of permission from redheart for all my images used. Thank you.

    • Norman Beer

      Who are you? What is your full LEGAL name?
      Which company?
      Where are the releases for the images?

      • Tasha

        I will not state my full name on here only to the photographers who contact me directly. I am referring to Charming Photos. Again, I will release more information to the photographers who contact me directly, not on a public forum.

        • Norman Beer

          Since this is a ‘temp’ guest account that’s not doable.

          • Tasha

            That is your opinion. You all seem to have all my information posted, including my Facebook profile. Any photographer who was directly involved may contact me there for my personal phone number as well as other contact information. I am offering an apology and asking for a chance to make this right as much as possible. If no one is willing to do so then the point of this site invalid.

          • Norman Beer

            Photographers HAVE contacted you. Check out the review page as well as the screen cap proofs below.

          • Tasha

            I am asking for individuals o contact me directly, not through a post or page. There is enough outside involvement as is and this needs to be discussed directly, not with 200 outside opinions added to every comment made.

          • peaceetc

            Again, you’re sounding like Aries. I have to ask — whose phone number is on Charming Photos and the crochet page? Because they are the same.

          • Tasha

            It is a cell phone, through att, that we both use for business calls. Since she only takes select clients I have it most of the time to use for both businesses.

          • BullShite

            I love how “they” live in different cities….. yet use the same cell for two separate businesses…. I TOTALLY BELIEVE THIS NOW!!!

          • Lindsay11

            Oh yeah, that’s totally a thing. You have a business in one town and a friend of yours (that is so super close to your family she claims your kids as her own) has a business in X miles away town and you share a CELL phone. Doesn’t every business do this? It’s totally legit! And it’s super easy to call the photographer of one town because she can just pass that on to her FRIEND who lives in another town and let her know she has a customer. What do you mean every business doesn’t do this??

        • Norman Beer

          I’m sure you understand, especially after the countless lies by Aries, until you come up with something better, there is no way to believe you.

          • Tasha

            Then there is no way to resolve this issue. I am offering my personal information as well as proof to those who deserve it. If they do not want to take me up on that offer that is their choice not yours.

    • Norman Beer

      We need something from your attorney, not a temporary profile from a cell phone.

      • Tasha

        Those who need more information are welcome to contact me directly. My attorney is not available currently but I will be happy to answer questions to those who were directly involved in this issue, no one else.

        • peaceetc

          I’m sorry, but this has become a public issue. Deflecting and saying you’ll speak only with those involved isn’t going to help anything. Those who are directly involved have had their comments deleted and have been ignored. This is the same tactic Aries has employed, so I’m not sure you’re doing a great job proving you aren’t her.

          • Tasha

            It may have become public but I will only speak of legal issues and resolutions in private.

    • Norman Beer

      You need to be the one contacting the photographers who’s images were stolen, NOT the other way around. They are not responsible to you, rather you to them.
      You say you want to do the ‘right thing’, then do it. Contact them. Make a PUBLIC apology, not one herein.

      • Tasha

        I did make a public apology, this is the only public place that is still viewable by those involved

        • Norman Beer

          Actually not true. You have countless FB profiles. Post PUBLIC the apology on each of those.

          • Tasha

            I have 1 profile, 2 of them are fakes ran by my ex. I use my personal profile for personal things, not business or public things. I posted an apology and how to contact me if needed, that is all I will be posting.

          • Norman Beer

            Where?

          • Tasha

            You all have my Facebook profile posted as well as the business number (I do not have the phone currently tho). If they contact me on Fb I will provide my personal email and phone to get this resolved.

          • Norman Beer

            There are countless FB profiles. Which one exactly?

          • Marc W.

            Also find out which “personality” you want to answer the phone.

    • Norman Beer

      As for RH, until you post a copy of the written letter from them, it’s heresy.

      • Tasha

        And that is not even pertinent at this point. If redheart has an issue with it, they can contact me directly. I do not need to provide personal information on a public forum just because you say so.

        • Norman Beer

          You are welcome to redact your name, but since your business address is already public there should be no conflict there. It’s your business that is suspect as it has stolen until proven otherwise images on it.

          • Tasha

            Are they yours? If not then it is no concern of yours.

          • Norman Beer

            Are they stolen? Then yes! And until you can prove otherwise they are considered stolen. Hence the reason for this page. Hence the reason YOU are in this mess to begin with.
            I fail to understand WHY someone would want to keep digging holes and making it harder for themselves when a very simple solution is available.

          • Tasha

            My images I was given permission for, and I do not need to prove that to you.

          • Norman Beer

            If you HAD proof you would certainly be more than willing to post it. But since you know you don’t you will keep up this game.

          • Tasha

            No, I wouldn’t. You do n know me so please do not act like you know how I think.

          • Norman Beer

            I know you can’t keep your story straight. You KNEW about this page yesterday.

          • Tasha

            No, I actually didn’t. I was told there was a link being posted and I ignored it until someone suggested I come look at the madness going on.

          • Norman Beer

            Actually…

          • Marc W.

            Hi Aries.

        • Lindsay11

          Yeah but what about the etsy sellers’ photos you stole from to represent your extremely lackluster work? Did they give you permission to use their photos? No way sister!

      • ALP

        Heresy or hearsay? I’m down with either in this case.

        • Norman Beer

          Yes, Stupid autocorrect!

          • ALP

            I like heresy. It’s an underused word. 🙂

    • ALP

      But RedHeart doesn’t do that. They’ve sent threatening letters to yarn shop owners for even distributing their free patterns. There is no reason they would allow you to sell items made from them.

      • Tasha

        I asked before hand, explained that I sell items at cost and proved that I do not and never intend to make a profit off my items. The money goes towards autism awareness groups.

        • Norman Beer

          Actually you said on the review that you called them YESTERDAY. Or did you forget that?

        • ALP

          I’ll be honest: I don’t believe you. But I hope for your sake that you are telling the truth because you need some good karma after all of this.

          ETA: Norman has a better memory than I do. Whoops. So I guess we’re back to liar, liar, pants on fire. **sigh**

          • Tasha

            I don’t need you to believe me, but it is understandable as to why you wouldn’t.

          • Norman Beer

            Continuing to hide makes us believe you even less. If you truly are someone other than Aries you should be wanting to clear your name. Hiding isn’t doing that.

          • Lindsay11

            Oh yeah, even if Norman doesn’t have super awesome proof there is no way Red Heart or the etsy sellers would ever ever do it. Everyone knows this but Tasha/Aries.

    • Justin Case

      I am glad to see you are taking a first (baby) step to address this issue. But I can assure you, as several people have pointed out, all the lying and denial has made things infinitely worse for you on the believability front.
      Let us know when you decide to come clean about ALL of it, until then this is all too much fun to let you get away with.

  • susan

    Aries has stated the the wedding planning biz was hers (and that she sold it). It was called S and E Wedding Planning and a few times I wondered about where that S and E came from. Just occured to me those are the first letters of the names of the two girls, Sarra and Emma. Now, why would she name her company she started years ago after her current emloyee’s kids? Why not after her very own nephew? Yea, another piece of the puzzle that untangles her web of lies.

    • Tasha

      S & E was short for simple and elegant weddings, not my daughter’s names.

      • Helena

        Whose business was it? If it was Aries’ business which she sold, then why are you posting about it?

        • Tasha

          I am explaining the name, I did not know I was not allowed to do so. I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

          • Helena

            Okay, do you know when S&E weddings stopped trading? When did you start at Charming Photos?

          • Tasha

            I stared there in 2012, when s&e was still running. It was not much longer before she sold it because she did not have time for both.

          • Helena

            So it was closed by 2013 then?

          • Tasha

            I believe so but I honestly do not remember the specifics. I was more focused on proving myself to my boss than I was sticking my nose in her business.

          • Helena

            Convenient, seeing as you posted this picture on the S&E weddings foursquare in Feb 2013. Surely you can see that none of this makes any sense whatsoever. https://www.flickr.com/photos/heh86/4264607035/in/pool-shaped_bokeh

          • Norman Beer

            Oops!

          • Helena

            This is better.

          • Justin Case

            haha. Just saw that they DID get one review!

          • Helena

            Yeah, it’s a good one!

          • Justin Case

            OK, caught that one now. NICE work Ms H.

          • Helena

            Thanks. Where the hell is Lindsay? She’d be all over this!

          • Lindsay11

            haha omg! You’ve found so much stuff partner-in-not-crime!

          • Lindsay11

            BAM!

        • susan

          Helena i think she’s apologizing for Charming Photo’s which she is supposedly just an employee of. She is not the one who should be apologizing. “Aries” has stated over and over again the she posted the stolen images with permissions she obtained. This is highly suspect coming from “Tasha.”

          • Norman Beer

            Exactly!

          • Tasha

            I was just made aware of this site, otherwise I would have commented earlier.

          • Norman Beer

            You were made aware of this site YESTERDAY.

          • Norman Beer
          • Justin Case

            Uhm, that makes no sense. You (as Aries) claimed earlier that it was Tasha that was called this morning… not to mention that your (Tasha) web page had TONS of information about this site all day yesterday.

            I call total bullshit on all of this. Come out, come out, Aries.

          • Helena

            You claimed to be posting to your business page yesterday on Aries’ facebook profile? There was a link to this page I am certain.

          • Norman Beer

            She doesn’t even know what lies she’s told. C’mon, the proof is in the review!
            https://www.facebook.com/norman.beer/posts/10202785427051611:0

          • Helena

            5th post down. Jeez. What a mess!

          • Justin Case

            YEah, everybody SLOW DOWN, can’t type and laugh AND keep up!

          • Justin Case

            (shit, spilled my vodka in my popcorn)

          • Helena

            Shit? You now have vodka flavoured popcorn! That sounds awesome!

          • Lindsay11

            haha aww here it is, we should make sure we have a screen cap commemorating Justin’s vodka popcorn creation!

  • Tasha W.

    Last post/comment from me. I want to again apologize for the events that have occurred. I would like to speak directly to those whose images were used and see if we can get to the bottom of all this. I will NOT post information such as my phone number for everyone to have and use. I will give personal information as well as proof of identity and any proof I have of permission of photos tho those who are directly involved. I will not handle private matters or pass out my personal information for everyone to see. If you would like to take me up on this offer, my Facebook has been posted already (the one with my 2 daughters pictured is the only one that is actually me, the others are ran by vengeful ex’s or are inactive accounts). My attorney will be involved in all communication between myself and any photographer with a claim. This is for both parties protection and peace of mind. Again I apologize for all that has happened and I hope we can come to some resolve with it all.

    • Norman Beer

      Again, it is NOT the responsibility of the people you stole from to contact you. That’s something your attorney certainly told you as well.

    • Norman Beer

      Also, since the images were stolen by Aries on Aries photography page you have no legal grounds to negotiate for her. WHY would someone contact YOU when you are not the legal entity for the business?

      • Helena

        This is when it all gets a little bit complicated. The two entities cross over so much that it’s impossible to tell where one ends and the other begins.

        • Marc W.

          And that’s The Aristocrats!

          • Lindsay11

            hahahaha!

      • Tasha W

        I am acting as a representative of charming photos and the attorney is hired by her to represent the business as well, so I can make contact and provide proof if requested directly.

        • Norman Beer

          Present the POA. Your attorney will advise you that you are required by law to present it any time you are asked to do so.

          • Tasha W

            I am acting as an agent not an attorney so POA (power of attorney) is not required. The offense is against the company not the person, so any agent of the company may represent the company with he owner gives permission, which she did.

          • Norman Beer

            That’s called a POA and MUST be in writing and presented if asked by ANYONE. Not just an attorney, court or law enforcement.

          • Tasha

            I was told by my attorney that it was not needed due to having a signed, hand written letter from her stating that I am legally able to represent the company for any and all legal issues. I will be going with the word of my attorney on this.

          • Norman Beer

            A hand written letter is essentially the same thing. Just like a typed and written will. Written is called holographic will.
            It too MUST be presented when asked.

          • Tasha

            To the courts yes, my attorney will be present for all conversations so it is not needed in those cases as I will not be the one representing anything.

          • Norman Beer

            YOU said people are to contact YOU. Legally they need to contact your attorney. What’s their info?

          • Justin Case

            Excellent question. I have some things I’d like to discuss with that attorney myself. And since lawyers have no reason to hide…

          • Joseph Philbert

            Its a secret lawyer… 😛

          • Tasha

            Are you one of the owners of one of the images?

          • Justin Case

            for someone who has insited that she has done nothing wrong, you seem to be quite well prepared for dealing with legal problems. A bit odd, no?

          • Tasha

            I dealt with 3 locals stealing my images writhing the last year. I’m use to it by now

          • Marc W.

            And you found nothing wrong with the huge difference in quality of the stolen work by your “boss” Aries?

          • Justin Case

            HAHHAHHAHHHHHAHHHHHHA! THAT is RICH! And you knew NOTTTTTHING about any of that going on at the bullshit parlor called Charming Photos?

          • Tasha

            I was told she had permissions and I had no reason not to believe her.

          • Justin Case

            (the fact that Aries seems to be a serial liar should have been a dead give away, honey)

          • Tasha

            She has never lied to me before, so it wasn’t. I know her real name, all about her life. She is one of my nest friends so I had no reason to doubt her at all.

          • Joseph Philbert

            You have no reason to doubt her then you look up and read the evidence. Then still believe everything she says … you are a best friend all right a blind Dumb Ass one.

          • Helena

            Trusting someone blindly who felt the need to go by a fake name? Hmmm…

          • Tasha

            There is a story behind it, and it makes sense actually.

          • Helena

            Well please, do explain. Also, while you’re at it, prove you are not one and the same. Post a picture of you, with Aries.

          • Justin Case

            yes, yes, please explain. We have lots of time, we can wait.

          • Helena

            The silence is deafening.

          • Justin Case

            damn, I saw ‘someone is typing’ and I was REALLY hoping it would be her, with a nice long, convoluted tale that would come into direct conflict with harsh reality of a Google search.

          • Helena

            LOL!

          • Lindsay11

            So your boss, “aries”, gave you permission to use stolen photos?

          • doncalifornia

            bingo

          • BullShite

            HAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!!!

        • Popcorn At The Ready

          I think instead of attacking her we should try giving out the contact information of the photographers that were wronged. Maybe they will be contacted and maybe they won’t, but I think that might be the best thing to do at this point.

          http://www.amandaabrahamphotography.com/contact

          http://gailmontgomery.com/baltimore-maryland-event-photographer/catonsville-maryland-childrens-photography-studio-baby-bunny/

          You can find the rest under the ‘Original source’ links above. Let them know what happened and apologize profusely. Just be completely up front and honest.

          Note: I’m not familiar with the law so maybe this isn’t the best course of action without a legal representative.

          • Norman Beer

            Don’t forget Autumn and Chi.

          • Tasha

            Thank you, this is what I needed. Thank you very much!!

          • Justin Case

            no, it’s a fair move. She won’t contact anyone, of course since she is liable for a TON of damages when she admits wrongdoing directly. She would be better off just coming clean and asking for mercy at this point.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            I can’t speak for anyone else, but I’d rather hear from the wrongdoer first instead of getting it from a third party. Perhaps they’ll go a bit easier on her – who knows.

          • Norman Beer

            She has yet to prove she is not Aries.

          • Justin Case

            There is only one party here. Aries is just pretending to be someone else so that she could deflect responsibility. I assume she will try the same when the photographers contact her.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            Have all of the photographers been notified? I’m only aware of two of them, but there might have been others that are aware that didn’t post here. Either way, she’s screwed and she better hope that she’s not sued by everybody.

          • Justin Case

            Norman has been following this a lot longer than anyone, but multiple photographers have contacted her to complain.

          • Norman Beer

            Everyone that’s been contacted has said the same thing. She does NOT have any rights to the images. As for their actions I am not at liberty to disclose that at this time.
            As for how long I’ve been following this? Take a very close look at the screen caps in the original post… In other words, WAY TOO LONG and I know WAY TOO MUCH! Way more than she thinks we do.

          • Lindsay11

            It was so kind of you to post those links for Tasha who was too lazy to click a few at the top of this page. Then again, she should have known who she stole from, right?

            Honestly and no sarcasm, how very kind of you Mr./Mr/s Popcorn. Watch out for Justin as he wants to throw vodka on you.

          • Popcorn At The Ready

            I’d rather not turn into mush so thanks for the heads up 😉

    • Justin Case

      gotta ask… why would your boyfriend have your EX-BOYFRIENDS fake profile of you as a friend on Facebook? AND why would he ‘like’ the picture of you posted there?

      • Tasha

        Because they were friends, hence why he is vengeful

        • Justin Case

          I guess that almost makes sense… until you posted this:

          • Norman Beer

            Oops

          • tasha

            Don’t know that “this” is because it’s not showing on my screen. I do know that the Fb is under my old email wccs07@yahoo which was deleted 3 months ago and I have not logged into that account since then.

          • Norman Beer

            Except that’s the email you logged into here with… OOPS! You LIED again!

          • Tasha

            Yep I used it here because it doesn’t exists, its an email that doesn’t work anymore and I do not feel like having my personal email posted for everyone.

          • Norman Beer

            Really? Do you really think people are going to believe you?
            Stop the lies and do the right thing!

          • Norman Beer

            Oh, and yes, I know way more than you think I do!

          • Tasha

            You do not scare me if that is your intention. I have nothing to hide I just choose to not advertise my personal information.

          • Norman Beer

            YOU posted the personal info of your kid on YOUR public page.

          • Tasha

            I posted their names, someone else posted their socials on my page earlier which is highly uncalled for

          • Helena

            I find that hard to believe, seeing as the consensus here was to leave your children’s information out of this, so name and shame, who did it?

          • Tasha

            That person knows who they are, the account it was posted from was fake and is gone now. The name on the OP account was Spar Lee

          • Norman Beer

            Where is the screen cap?

          • Tasha
