This is another user submitted thief who was alerted to her work being stolen because another photographer she’d previously stolen from had kept an eye on her after her theft (she had used the stolen image in a newspaper ad). I don’t know why but when caught in the act most thieves tend to steal again in due time. This is part of why this page was created so that more eyes can be kept on these folks.
There is a lot of digging to do here since it seems that she’d removed some of the stolen works when she was outed recently but not all. Also, for those champions of the stealers, IMHO if a photographer posts an image to the website, Facebook or online gallery and does NOT make it clear as day they aren’t the original photographer they are trying to pass the work off as their own work.
Her website appears to be clean, this is due to the recent outing though from the stories I’ve heard. She had to eliminate entire galleries as the stolen images were reported.
Her Facebook page:
I had to scroll until around Christmas to find something that caught my eye. Again, this is probably due to the recent outing of her images.
These images are originally by Othello Silla seen here on their blog.
The next image on her Facebook Gallery was another one that was a departure from her style of photography and sure enough, it’s not hers either.
I’m not 100% this is the original source but from what I can find, the source appears to be a blog called From the Mountains of Virginia and is a portrait of their dogs.
The next image that caught my eye was the use of a mother and daughter on an ad for sessions in the Fall. It’s easy to pick up on it as, again, it is a departure from her original work. She’s used it quite a few times in her Facebook gallery. Toss in a rant here about her prices. $40 for a session, files AND prints?! She can’t be making any money after taxes. Oh wait… never mind.
She’s used this image as a profile picture.
This image is by Laci Davis Photography and is seen in a blog post here.
This image is no longer on her Facebook. However it was one of the recently outed images. Notice her watermarking of the card.
It was originally by Fishy Face Photography and you can read about the entire incident here on her blog.
In searching her business I came across this ad which is also using an image she didn’t take. Notice the cropping.
This image is by b2 photography and is seen on their blog here.
This is the reason why I started this page in two pictures.
First we have the posted image about buying this prop. A client would assume this is the type of images they’ll receive when this prop is used.
This is the type of image they get instead.
