do you know about CopyScape?

If not you should check it out!

Unfortunately in this business, the most successful and inspiring photographers have the most copycats. This can be quite frustrating because we all know how much time, effort, and creativity we put into our work, our websites and our business branding, so for an unethical photographer (or fauxtographer!) to come along and just swipe it all...well, that pretty much sucks!

I hear about website plagarism almost every time a group of pros gets together...it is just sadly another part of the business these days. This week alone, I have been alerted to three photographers who stole word-for-word verbiage from my own portrait site...kind of makes me go "hmmmmm," in a creative business like photography, especially when they copy my bio!

Use a site like CopyScape if you dare or type your original website wording into "quotes" and google to see what comes up...hopefully, you will find nothing!

Well, hello! I'm a boudoir and wedding photographer from Pennsylvania; I am based in both in Philadelphia and in the mountains of Northeast, PA. I have a love for shooting film, vivid colors, fluffy dogs, salty snacks, binge watching Netflix, sarcasm, and napping. My road to becoming a photographer isn't a very poetic or adventurous story: I was a painter and had always pursued the thought of going to school for fine art. I took an introduction to film photography class in my senior year of high school and just fell in love with the medium. I've pursued my own photography business ever since and am still shooting with film!
