  • Celine (peaceetc)

    I’ll be interested to see how this one responds. I hope she just comes clean and doesn’t cause drama. I hate drama.

  • You can’t fix stupid

    I see the FB was pulled quickly but there are still stolen images on her IG. Clean up everything.

    • Peter Kelly

      All the sites are still up as far as I can see, including Facebook.

      I am always amazed with thieves like this that there is an obvious huge difference in quality between their own work and stolen images, yet they seem to think no one will notice!

      Just wait until someone hires them and is completely let down. So unfair!

      • You can’t fix stupid

        Then she must have changed her settings. Most likely only viewable in the US

        • Peter Kelly

          I’m in the UK, but I can still see her page. Let’s hope she takes it down soon.

  • You can’t fix stupid

    Her IG still has stolen images on .

  • Wow the thieving goes deep. She’s been at it for a while. It’s great that she’s cleaning up, but…Splash pages and service pages, still some plagiarism up. Instagram is chock full and so on. I think she’d be better off deleting/unpublishing and starting from scratch at this point. Just going to put this link here to try and help her out http://www.wikihow.com/Delete-Instagram-Photos

  • Photo Stealers

    I still see all of her pages but she has removed some of the images above.

  • Laura

    There is a huge difference between the images that she’s obviously taken herself (hello, on-camera flash, compressed sets, and poor editing) and the plethora of images she has stolen (most of which are beautifully lit). The only right thing to do is a public confession + apology, scrub all social media accounts, and start over – from scratch – without this dirty little secret. She’d likely improve her artistry just from the act of being brutally honest with herself and everyone else. It always amazes me how much wasted effort thieves put into stealing images and plagiarism – imagine where she’d be if she’d invested that time into learning and improving the crafts and skills of writing and photography. Such a waste.

    • Peter Kelly

      Is it just a wrong impression I have, or is this very similar to most of the recent thieves unmasked here?

      They all seem to be people that are just very bad photographers and steal pictures to provide a completely bogus impression of their skills, yet include their own dreadful and completely obvious work. From what I see, none of them could ever be a good photographer, irrespective of time taken, or effort made, to learn.

      Personally, I think that is actually worse than the stealing itself, as they will never be able to provide the service offered, and I feel deeply for those who have been duped.

      I could possibly forgive a talented photographer (eventually, if they were totally honest in their apologies to all) who hasn’t had much opportunity and takes a shortcut to create a representative portfolio, but these people are just scummy con-men.

      p.s. I see Lori Cox, who is typical of the ‘never-be-a-photographer’ group, is still pretending and hosting stolen pictures.

      • KylDemon

        Yeah, it’s pretty common.

  • captain-confuzzled

    found a link to the company she worked with to build her website. They featured her in their blog and noted that “we wanted to build something that would be very image based, something that would showcase her work on every page” I have contacted the company and let them know – they responded immediately with interest and wanted to understand more about the issue. Anyway, their comment in their blog when they highlighted her site, indicates that she provided the images as hers to them. So there goes the ‘web designer’ excuse.

    • Anti idiocracy

      Let the hanging and flogging begin

      • captain-confuzzled

        no idea what you are talking about. I was just pointing out that she duped the web development company along with everyone else.

        • KylDemon

          They’re just pissy and as a result trolling around the site. Ignore it.

      • Celine (peaceetc)

        Seriously? Just… no.

      • John Q. Public

        Or, they could apologize PRIVETLY to the ones they stole from, and apologize PUBLICLY to the ones they defrauded.
        Admit their mistake and move forward.
        Learn how to capture the photos they pilfered.
        Spend years perfecting their “Style” and then go have it!

        Heck, we all make mistakes…. It’s how we chose to deal with those mistakes that makes the difference in people.

  • You can’t fix stupid

    No apologies, nothing. To her it is business as usual. So sad

    • chuck knuckles

      As of right now, when you google Rachael Blessing Photography, this page shows up half way down on page 2. So lets mention Rachael Blessing Photography in Mountain Home, Idaho a few more times and get it up there where anyone googling her name will get the true story on how she treats her customers.

  • And i was here dumb enough to think this dude had changed

  • Always such a bizarre feeling when your images are stolen… in this case, she used two of our maternity images (by Dreamlove Photography), but it’s super weird because they are actually images of ME that my husband shot (we co-own the business)… the striped sweater photo and the silhouette belly pic. UGH! I feel wronged not once, but twice!! Hope she learns her lesson…

    • KylDemon

      You could always make sure that she does by pursuing legal action.

  • Wow.

  • Michael Goolsby

    As is typical, once the stolen stuff is removed, the real stuff left behind just adds up to an awful lot of dreadful, an conclusion reached not out of a desire to denigrate, but rather to perhaps illustrate why so many of these moms-with-cameras feel the need to steal; they want to jump fro beginner to pro in just one easy step. Sadly, when that “one easy step” is also known as “hard work and practice”, it’s just too easy for them to sidestep all of that and steal from those who did the actual work, claiming it as their own, and believing that all they need is a break and everyone will see how truly wonderful they are! But stealing the work of others doesn’t quite prepare one for being a capable pro quite as well all that hard work stuff, and so, producing only poor photographs for their unsuspecting clients, they have to keep using the stolen stuff, ripping off both photographers and clients along the way. I’d be quite livid to find out I’d paid good money only to be duped. Then again, I have to question how much research those clients put into their decision to hire this fraud in the first place. Hopefully, this website will give them more tools to make better decisions, and the thief known as Rachel Blessing Photography will go where so many like her have ended up in the past: away from photography.
