To be honest I don’t know what the hell is happening with this company.

The website just seems off. Some plagiarism, some stolen images. I think there’s more stolen on the website but I couldn’t find sources for it all.

The one Instagram account (Ivan) seems like a bot account with bought followers?

The maternity Instagram is full of AI images along the stolen ones.

The wedding Instagram has a “Backdropville” icon.

Very weird but they are advertising with the stolen images so are trying to get clients.

Not how I planned on spending one of my few Saturdays off this year but here we are. It’s almost somewhat refreshing to get back to photo stealing after dealing with getting scammed a month ago though!

Since she stole multiple items from a single session I’m posting the first after a bit because it’s a lot of work lol.

As always, there is a huge difference between Alyson’s work and what she’s stolen.

So many swear words came out of my mouth when working on this post.  I’ve had to do a few stretches and take a few breaks from all the digging to do what I can to find the original sources.

I don’t know what is so hard for photographers to grasp but you DO NOT USE OTHER PEOPLE’S WORK TO ADVERTISE FOR SESSIONS.  EVER.

There’s a ton more but I’ve got a headache and my neck is numb so I’m raising the white flag.
