I got married in october of 2004 I decided to go with Michelle Dumser. Her prices were best in town and on a budget she was the one for me. I went to her house to look at some of her work (I should have been alarmed when she asked me if I wanted a beer). It was ok considering the price she was to meet me at my house for the before pictures of the wedding when she arrived litteraly 5 minutes before we were to leave. She rushed us to take the 5 pictures she actually took. She raced over the the hall where we got married and took so so pictures of my husband and all of the grooms men during the ceremony. If she took 5 pictures that was streching it.

I was promised 250 pictures I think I got maybe 75 every time. I looked up to see where she was at she was at the bar getting drink after drink. She missed most of the pictures you would want like dancing with mother and father the bridal party dance ect I dont even have a picture of the garter toss or the bouquet toss because she took off about an hour and a half into the reception. needless to say she did send me my proof album and when I went to order the rest of my package I could not get in touch with her.

Finally when I did she told me that she had moved to Slidell and that all of the negatives were in Harahan in a PODs storage facility. She would have to did them out, she told me to send her my proof pictures of the ones that I wanted that she could work from there. Needless to say I sent them to her and never heard another word about my pictures.

My mother ordered a mother of the bride book and never recd that either but she was paid for it. Michelle told me that she would send with my other pictures Yeah Right. Now I can't get in touch with her shes no where to be found. The last I heard I found out that she was going to move to Florida. God help anyone who thinks of using this Person she is a con artist Beware!!!!!!

CONVICTED FELON NOW IN DALLAS, TX

AUTHOR: JD Mueller - ()

This is dedicated to the truth behind Michelle Powell of Dallas, Texas. My family use to be friends with this photographer and even gave her jobs for our photography gigs. Afters years of friendship Michelle Powell took keys to a storage unit of ours, and took several items  with the intent on paying for them.

Many emails were exchanged back in forth thus providing proof that this person had agreed to pay for the items. When Michelle refused to send any payment of any kind she claims that she “Left the Couch Outside” because she didn’t want it anymore.  Keep in mind this is after the fact the woman went to Austin and got our items out of storage, and then drove them to her house in Dallas.

Later we realized that in addition to the Cantoni leather sofa that was stolen a box of camera lenses with Canon/Nikon lens was missing.  In addition to this a $1,200 Italian lamp came up missing after her visit.

Michelle Powell was a person that we use to trust.  My family step father, mother and myself respected her.

BE AWARE!!! MICHELLE POWELL KNOWS EXACTLY HOW THE LEGAL SYSTEM WORKS.  SHE WOULD KNOW, SHE IS A CONVICTED THEIF AMONG OTHER THINGS.

MICHELLE POWELL TOLD MY MOTHER THAT SHE WAS REPORTING THAT I THREATENED HER LIFE WHEN IN REAILITY I TOLD HER TO PAY HER DEBT OR I WOULD TELL HER SON THAT SHE SMOKES AND SELLS WEED MARIJUNANA.

This person claims that she got a protective order against us after she STOLE thousands of dollars worth of furniture our of storage and we were being threatening.

Michelle Powell knew exactly what to do in order to get what she wanted.  She is a snake, and she thinks she is smarter than other people.

The funny thing is that anyone that knows powellpictures.com knows this woman can’t even control what she stuffs down her obese face.

Honestly, it would be best for her child if the truth came out and she was exposed for who she is.

END RESULT: I COULD NOT FILE CHARGES AGAINST MICHELLE POWELL BECAUSE SHE KNEW EXACTLY WHAT TO SAY AND DO.  SHE CLAIMS SHE PUT THE COACH OUTSIDE WHILE I WAS IN ANOTHER COUNTRY AND I DIDN’T PICK IT UP. SHE DID THIS SO SHE COULD KEEP THE THING!!!!!!

THIS WOMAN IS NOT IN JAIL ONLY BECAUSE WE TRUSTED HER WITH THE KEY TO THE STORAGE UNIT.

BEWARE BEWARE BEWARE OF THIS NARSASITIC SHALLOW PERSON

A special note to our favorite person: I hope you hope that couch breaks into pieces under your weight. You coul dnever afford ANYTHING that nice in your ENTIRE LIFE!!! ENJOY this STOLEN furniture because it is the nicest things you will probably EVER own in your lifetime.

I bet if they knew the truth about you they would snatch your child away from you in SECONDS!!!

You are a shameful mother, a discrace as an example and utterly pathetic. Hopefully this site will enlighten you to another stage of possibilities in life.

YOU ARE A THEIF. IF YOU WALKED INTO WALKMART AND TOOK SOMETHING WITHOUT PAYING YOU WOULD BE IN JAIL. THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE HIRE YOU IS BECAUSE THEY FEEL SORRY FOR YOU!

TO MISSY

AUTHOR: michelle dumser - (USA)

 I MAKE IT BOLD SO PEOPLE CAN READ WHAT I SAY OUT LOUD.

FIRST OF ALL, NOW I WOULD HAVE ONLY OWED YOU COST AT THE TIME OF A REMAINDER ORDER. WITCH WOULD CONSIST OF MY COST. NOT YOUR COST TO ME.
 YOU HAD A $595.00 PACKAGE WITH 10 8X10'S AND 1 16X20MY COST IS $36.00 FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE PACKAGE..I THINK YOU OWE ME WAY MORE THAN $36.00 FOR MY GAS TO ALABAMA AND FLORIDA.

 YOU DO NOT GET IT AT YOUR COST TO ME.. THAT IS MY PROFIT OVER MY COST.
IF YOU DIDN'T LIKE YOUR PICTURES AS YOU SAY IN YOUR COMPLAINT THAN WHY DO YOU WANT THEM??????

 AS YOU STATED YOUR 4 YR. OLD DAUGHTER TOOK BETTER PIX WITH HER THROW AWAY CAMERA. SO ONCE AGAIN WHY DO YOU WANT MY PICTURES THAT YOU DON'T LIKE??

 YOU ALSO STATED THAT YOU HAD FAMILY WHO SHOT THEIR OWN PICS, AND ONCE AGAIN WHY DO YOU WANT MINE. YOU USED THEIR PIX TO BLOW UP FOR YOUR FAMILY RIGHT?? WHY BECAUSE THEY WERE SO MUCH BETTER THAN MINE HUH??

YOU DID NOT BUY THE NEGATIVES AND YOU WILL NEVER GET THE NEGATIVES. 
YOU GIRLS NEED TO KNOW NOW YOU ARE NOT A QUEEN WHEN YOU GET MARRIED. YOU ARE A BRIDE WHO IS MARRYING HER PRINCE..
YOU THINK JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE GETTING MARRIED YOU ARE ENTITLED TO RUN PEOPLE AS YOU SEE FIT, TO YOUR PERSONALITY.

 YOU NEED TO LEARN IN LIFE THAT A WEDDING IS YOUR LIFETIME OF MEMORIES. AND APPRECIATE THE GOOD OF THE EVENT. BUT YOU ALL THINK IT'S SOME KIND OF RULING OF A COUNTRY. YOU THINK IT'S ALL ABOUT HOW YOU DIRECT THE EMPLOYEE'S YOU HIRE.. WELL NOT WITH ME I WILL NOT BE TREATED IN THIS MANNER BUY ANYONE. WHO IS AN EQUAL OR LESSER THAN ME..  YOU ARE VIOLATING THE LAWS OF THE [LABOR LAW] WHEN YOU WORK AT A JOB YOU DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO TREAT PEOPLE AS THEY ARE PESENTS AND OR SLAVES TO YOU MY QUEEN.

  THIS WOULD BE THE ONLY REASON I WOULD NEVER WANT TO BE A WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER AGAIN. NOT BECAUSE SOME WITCH LIKE YOU THINKS SHE GONNA RUN ME, AND OR SCARE ME INTO GIVING HER SOMETHING THAT SHE IS NOT ENTITLED TO..

 I THINK I HAVE BEEN MOSTLY FAIR WITH ALL OF MY CLIENTS.. AS I AM, AND AS I WAS THE BUSINESS OWNER. WHO SETS HER OWN RULES FOR HER BUSINESS.
 I HAVE NOT RIPPED YOU OFF OF ANYTHING AND YOU BETTER SHUT YOUR MOUTH BEFORE I COME AFTER YOU WITH A SLANDER SUIT FOR DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER.

  YOU VERY WELL KNOW YOU NEVER SENT ANY MONEY WITH YOUR ORDER I RECEIVED AT THE TIME OF A NATURAL DISASTER.

   YOU WILL FIND OUT I AM NOT ONE TO THREATEN. SO GO CALL THE PRESIDENT, THE F.B.I. THE C.I.A. AND THE B.B.B. AND TELL GOD TOO WHY? BECAUSE HE KNOWS THE TRUTH......I AM DONE WITH THIS ONE..

to the little girl who cried wolf

AUTHOR: michelle dumser - (USA)

 ONCE AGAIN MISSY,
 I WILL NOT TOLERATE YOUR THREATS AGAINST ME. YOU HAVE MADE SOME HARSH ACCUSATIONS WITH NO MERIT.



 ONCE A BUSINESS HAS CLOSED YOU REALLY DON'T GET ANYTHING. IF I CHOOSE TO GIVE SOMEONE ANYTHING MORE SINCE THE CLOSING OF MY BUSINESS IN LOUISIANA FROM 2005. THAT IS MY CHOICE.  MAKING THREATS TO ME WILL GET YOU NO WHERE. I WORKED HARD FOR MY MONEY ON THIS WEDDING TRAVELING TO THREE STATES AWAY TO DO A JOB. WITH NO TRAVEL EXPENSES INCLUDED.



 YOU DID NOT PAY FOR ANY NEGATIVES AND YOU VERY WELL KNOW THAT. WHEN THE STORE HAS CLOSED THAT'S THE END OF IT.  YOU BOUGHT A PACKAGE FROM LOUISIANA SO THAT'S WHERE YOU HAVE TO KEEP IT. CHECK WITH AN ATTORNEY AND THEY WILL TELL YOU THAT.



 I HAD ALREADY CONSULTED WITH AN ATTORNEY IN LOUISIANA ON THIS MATTER WHEN I WAS STUCK LIVING IN A  HOTEL FOR 5 MONTHS. I HAVE PROOF OF THIS YOU CAN CHECK WITH THE GOVERNMENT. PLEASE DO SO I WAS EVEN PAID $1352.00 FOR MY LOSES FOR SOME EQUIPMENT FROM THE GOVERNMENT.



 I HAD MOVED FROM DESTREHAN LA. TO SLIDELL LA. AND LIVED THERE FOR 6 MONTHS IN MY MOTHER'S HOUSE TAKING CARE OF HER, UNTIL WE LEFT FOR KATRINA.

I HAVE PLENTY OF PROOF OF THIS.

 

THE PERSON YOU ARE REFERRING TO IS MY WORST ENEMY WHO WANTS TO DESTROY MY LIFE. SHE IS NOT SOMEONE WHO JUST FOUND ME. THIS PERSON IS SOMEONE I HAVE KNOWN FOR 14 YRS. WHO HAS HARASSED ME AND MY FAMILY FOR THE LAST 12 YRS.  YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT.



 GET YOUR STORIES STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU MAKE HARSH ACCUSATIONS AGAINST ME. I SPENT MY ENTIRE DAY AND NIGHT FOR YOUR WEDDING.  I DID THE JOB AND MORE..

THREATING ME WILL GET YOU NO WHERE. IF YOU WANT TO FEED OFF OF THESE LIES FROM SOMEONE WHOM STALKS MY LIFE FOR 12 YRS. THEN HAVE AT IT HUNNY. BUY WATCH WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT ME I WILL SUE YOU FOR SLANDERING MY FAMILY NAME.  DON'T EVER TELL SOMEONE THEY WILL NEVER BE A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER AGAIN. 

 IF I FIND OUT YOU HIRED SOMEONE TO COPY MY PRINTS I WILL SUE THEM TO FOR COPYWRITER'S INFRINGEMENT LAWS AND YOU TOO.



         I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU THINK OF ME BECAUSE YOU HAVE SHOWED ME WHAT TYPE OF PERSON YOU ARE.   WITH MANY OF LIES STARTING WITH WHO YOU ARE. YOU MADE A PHONY COMPLAINT ON ME USING A FAKE NAME.  THAT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A PSYCHO MAKING UP STORIES.            GOOD BYE   MS. DUMSER

to the liar that wrote this complete lie

AUTHOR: michelle dumser - (USA)

 IF YOU COULD READ ABOVE THE NASTY MESSAGE YOU WROTE UNDER MY REBUTTAL.
YOU WOULD CLEARLY SEE THAT I GAVE YOU MY EXPLANATION, TO YOUR UGLINESS.

 I DROVE TWO STATES AWAY FROM LOUISIANA TO SHOOT YOUR WEDDING YOU WERE NOT READY WHEN I ARRIVED AT THE CHURCH. I WAS VERY PATIENT WITH YOU AND YOUR FAMILY.

 THEN I DROVE TO A DARK ROAD WHERE YOU CLAIMED YOUR RECEPTION WOULD BE AT A RESTAURANT. ON TOP DECK IN THE MIDDLE OF WINTER OUTSIDE IN THE FREEZING COLD OVER 2 HOURS AWAY FROM YOUR ALABAMA CHURCH..

 YOU UNGRATEFUL GIRL.  YOU WERE NOT CHARGED ANY TRAVEL FEE WHAT SO EVER. THEN I NOT ONLY DROVE TO TWO OTHER STATES TO SHOOT YOUR WEDDING BUT YOU LIED TO ME ABOUT HOW FAR AWAY YOUR RECEPTION WAS.. YOU SAID I WOULD BE AN HOUR FROM THE CHURCH.

 YOU ONLY PAID A SMALL WEDDDING PACKAGE OF $595.00 WITCH DOES NOT INCLUDE TRAVELING FROM LOUISIANA TO ALABAMA AND THEN TO FLORIDA. AT MY COST AND I WAS SO TIRED I HAD TO GET A HOTEL AT MY COST. 

 WHEN YOU SENT A WEDDING LIST OF ORDERS FROM YOUR FAMILY YOU DID NOT INCLUDE THE PAYMENT. THEREFOR I DO NOT MAKE ORDERS OF THAT MAGNITUDE FOR ANYONE NO EXCEPTIONS. THAT'S TO ENSURE THAT I DO NOT GET STUCK WITH ORDERS THAT I HAVE TO PAY FOR. IT HAS ALREADY BE DONE TO ME IN THE BEGINING OF MY CAREER..   YOU SENT NO PAYMENT WITH THE ORDERS MAME!!!!!!!!!!!



FUTHERMORE, YOU ONLY BOUGHT A WEDDING PACKAGE OF 150 PICTURES NOT 250 CHECK YOUR PRICE LIST AT THAT TIME.  I DO NOT LIKE THESE LIES AND I WILL NOT TOLERATE THIS TYPE OF ABUSE FROM YOU..

 YOU DID NOT PAY FOR MY TRAVEL NOR MY HOTEL OF $95.00.  IF YOU WANT THAT ORDER FILLED YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY FOR IT. I AM NOT GETTING STUCK WITH ANY ORDERS AND THEN HAVE PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR MINDS.

 YOU LIED ABOUT WHO YOU ARE TO MAKE ME LOOK BAD THAT IS THE WRONG THING TO DO TO ME.  IF YOU DON'T WANT TO BE SUED FOR SLANDER I EXPECT AN APOLOGY FROM YOU YOUNG LADY.

  THE HURRICANE KATRINA WAS AUGUST 29,2005 IN NEW ORLEANS LA. HOW ABOUT THAT?????

 YOU GOT MARRIED ON DEC. 23, 2004 IN THE DEAD WINTER MISS KNOW IT ALL....................................

 YOU PLACED A BIG ORDER WITH NO PAYMENT SO THAT MEANS I DON'T MAKE THE ORDER.  I AM SICK OF THESE LIES ABOUT ME. IF I SEE ANYMORE SLANDER I WILL COME FIND YOU AND KICK SOME AS$.

 NOW TALK TO ME WITH SOME RESPECT OR YOU GET NOTHING WHY?????

 BECUASE THAT BUSINESS HAS BEEN CLOSED SINCE AUGUST 30,2004

 WHAT I COULD DO IS JUST CUT UP TEAR UP OR BURN ALL NEGATIVES FROM THAT BUSINESS ART PHOTOGRAPAHY BY MICHELLE DUMSER.

 THEN YOU WOULD NEVER GET ANYTHING FROM ME.......... WATCH WHAT YOU SAY ABOUT PEOPLE IT WILL COME BACK TO YOU WHEN YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT THE F* I HAVE GONE THROUGH YOU SELFISH BIT*............



        I LIVED IN A MOTEL ROOM FOR 5 MONTHS WHILE YOU WERE GALAFANTING AROUND THE WORLD WITH YOUR NAVY BOY...... I LIVED IN HELL WITH A CRIPLED MOTHER WHOM I TOOK CARE OF FOR ONE AND A HALF YEARS. AND I ENJOYED EVERY MINUTE OF HER DYING DAYS I SPENT WITH HER.

        YOU WROTE THE WRONG THING TO ME HUNNY.

 AND IF THAT BIT* WHO WRITES ALL OF THE REST OF THE SH* SHE HAS PUT OUT THERE IMA SMASH HER HEAD IN WHEN I GET MY HANDS ON HER.........

YOU BETTTER STOP THIS SH* AND STOP THE LIES ABOUT ME IM SICK OF IT. I HAD TO REBUILD MY LIFE FOR THE LAST 5 YEARS. DON'T EVER CROSS MY PATH AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ripped Off By Michelle Dumser

AUTHOR: Melissa - (U.S.A.)

I don't care who filed this orginal report or how they personally know Michelle Dumser. What I do care about is the persistant research this person did to finally locate Michelle. I was a bride ripped off by Michelle. My name is Melissa Alverson, maiden name Burton. I was married in Brewton, AL on December 23rd, 2004. (You can confirm this with your records Michelle). I filed a report in 2005 under the name Courtney living in Macon, GA. I did not want to give out my personal info because I was wary of putting it on the internet. To my surprise I received and email 4 years after filing the report because an "angel" filed an update with all of Michelle's new contact info.

I received a proof book from Michelle in a timely matter. I attempted to contact her to order the photo's included in the package I had paid for but was never able to personally speak to her. After leaving her several messages she changed her message machine to say my order would not be filled until fall 2005 because I had waited too long to contact her. (Sorry, my husband deployed shortly after the wedding and I had more important things to concern myself with than ordering my pictures the day I received my proof book). Michelle's delay tactic was a complete lie because shortly after leaving all the messages all her numbers were disconnected and her website disappeared (as it once again has since these reports have been updated). I never heared from her again and all this was before Katrina. The first two or three years after my wedding I tried everything I could to find her. I had numerous family wanting to know where there pictures were. I finally gave up and hired a professional photograper to reprint and enlarge some of the pictures my family had taken. Michelle's pictures were at best compared to what my 4 year old niece took with her disposable camera.

I don't know what you were doing Michelle but its time to make your wrongs right and writing complete slander against people in print is a huge mistake. Whoever this girl is I thank her because she found you when I could not. It does not look very professional when you call someone the devil and say your "one of God's children" because "one of God's children" would never say such a thing. I don't want my package pictures which I paid for in full in December 2004. I want my negatives. You say you still have them and I have no need for the pictures. I can understand people going through hard times, but Hurricanes don't wipe you off the face of the earth for 6 years or erase wedsites! If you still have all your records why did you never call your clients once you were settled, explain the situation, and make it right. People would have understood. I would not have cared if you called me two years later and told me what had happened if you were going to give me my pictures or refund my money. I find your story a little hard to believe, but believe this. I have my receipt showing I paid you in full, my credit card statement, all of our correspondence leading up to the wedding, phone records of my many attempts to contact you at your many different numbers, and all of my family to testify the crime you commited against my husband and myself! I kept everything in case I ever fould you.

You can contact me so we can work this out. My email address is beesbitc@hotmail.com. Until I hear from you and have my negatives in hand I am going to continue with the legal action I have already set in motion. I could not do this before because you "fell of the face of the earth" but since I have current info on you it is no problem. I previously filed reports on you with the BBB and PPA. I have refiled these reports with your updated information, contacted the Navarra PD and have someone legally representing this case. So unless I here from you soon, you will absolutely being hearing from me! If your going to run this time, you better run fast because we are right on your heals this time. What your doing will eventually catch up with you. With the ease of communication and availability of information these days you won't be able to do what you have been doing for much longer. I believe your days as a "Professional Photographer" are coming to an end.

You have already "ripped" me off but I don't want this to happen to anyone else. Weddings are a once in a lifetime event for most people and its an absolute crime for you to not only steal people's money but to also steal there happiest memories! It is unthinkable!

Melissa Alverson, beesbitc@hotmail.com

 YOU ARE A SICK INDIVIDUAL TO HUNT ME DOWN 3 STATES AWAY IN FLORIDA IM OVER 200 MILES AWAY FROM YOU AND YOU STILL FOLLOW ME YOU ARE A SICK STALKER.
 HOW WOULD YOU KNOW WHAT I LOST IN HURRICANE KATRINA?
 I LIVED IN A HOTEL FOR 5 MONTHS WHILE YOU WERE LIVING IN AN APT. IN KENNER I HAVE PROOF I PAID FOR THE HOTEL FOR 5 MONTHS WITH RECEIPTS IN MY NAME. I DIDN'T GET ANOTHER HOUSE UNTIL DEC. 28, 2005 AND I HAVE ALL THE PROOF TO SHOW ANYONE WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE THAT.
 YOU WERE NEVER AROUND ME TO KNOW WHAT I LOST YOU ARE NO FRIEND OF MINE AND HAVE NEVER BEEN. I HAVE EVERYTHING DOCUMENTED OF WHAT I LOST IN THE HURRICANE KATRINA WHERE I LIVED IN SLIDELL LA.
 I CHOSE TO STAY HERE IN FLORIDA WHEN WE LIVED HERE FOR 5 MONTHS IN A SMALL HOTEL ROOM. I HAD TO START MY LIFE OVER YOU DON'T KNOW ME OR MY BUSINESS YOU ARE NO FRIEND OF MINE. YOU ARE A SICK STALKER WHO I CAN'T GET AWAY FROM. I KNOW YOU WROTE THIS COMPLAINT BECAUSE THE GIRL SAID I OFFERED HER A BEER AT MY HOUSE. I NEVER HAVE BEER IN MY HOUSE.  I LIVED WITH MY YOUNG DAUGHTER ALONE.  JUST LEAVE ME ALONE AND MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS. I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU ARE DOING OR WHERE YOU ARE AS LONG AS I DON'T HAVE TO SEE YOUR UGLY FACE. IM SORRY YOU COULDN'T GET HIRED AS A LINGERE MODEL BUT I DIDN'T OWN THE COMPANY'S THAT I WORKED FOR IN THE LINGERE BUSINESS. THEY DIDN'T HIRE YOU BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT AN ATTRACTIVE GIRL.  IV'E BEEN ON 6 POSTERS AND WAS PAID VERY WELL TO BE A PIN UP MODEL.
   JUST FIND A LIFE FOR YOURSELF AND STAY OUT OF MINE. I WILL NEVER MOVE BACK TO THAT SWAMP IN NEW ORLEANS. WHAT YOU NEED TO DO IS CRAWL BACK INTO THAT HOLE IN THE EARTH AND PLUG IT BACK UP WHERE YOU CAME FROM HELL. YOU CAUSED THAT HOLE IN THE EARTH WHEN YOU BLASTED YOUR WAY OUT OF HELL TO HARASS MY LIFE. BUT I HAVE GOD ON MY SIDE AND I KNOW JESUS HE IS IN MY HEART. ONCE YOU GO BACK TO YOUR DADDY THE DEVIL AND WE PLUG THAT HOLE BACK UP MABY YOU WILL BE HAPPIER BACK IN THE FIRE PIT YOU FELL IN BECAUSE YOU ARE SO EVIL... I KNOW ILL BE MUCH HAPPIER WHEN YOU GO HOME TO DADDY.  YOU ARE THE DEVIL'S DAUGHTER. AND I AM ONE OF GOD'S CHILDREN. YOU CAN'T GET TO ME I AM LOVED BY JESUS HE WILL PROTECT ME FROM YOU..

AUTHOR: michelle dumser - (United States of America)

 In response to your complaint. I am the owner of Art Photography by Michelle Dumser.
 Due to hurricane Katrina i lost half of my equipment and had to close my business at that time of August 2005. I no longer had a location to operate from therefor i had no choice but  to close my business at that time. Due to the relocation from Destrehan La. to Slidell La. We all lost our homes and businesses from hurricane Katrina.
 If you are a client who did not get to order your remainder package of 8x10 enlargement copy's of your proof book you have already received.
 You may contact me at 850-602-3434 or email me at mlpowell0513@aol.com
 I am in the process of rebuilding my business under the same name.

 We my family and i are reopening my business and booking appointments as of December 1st. 2010.
 I did not run and hide from anyone i had to get another job and buy a new home to rebuild my own life.
 I am sorry for your loss but i will honor any package that you had purchased at the time of your event.
 Please feel free to contact me if you can prove that you did not receive your remainder packages. All negatives were stored in plastic containers to protect their re/production.
 I made sure that they would not get destroyed in the event of a disaster.

              Thank You,   Michelle Dumser

I also have had michelle take pictures for me and have not received my pictures but she has my money. I think the only reslt to this problem is a class action suit against Michelle.
