🛸 Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has donated to my film so far! It’s been almost a week and I am just about halfway there. As an independent artist who funds all of her own projects on tiny budgets, it means the world to have some help on this one. And thanks to anyone who shared the link as well! The link to donate to Homewrecker is in my bio. I love you and thank you again. 💓
The sun and the moon loved each other very much
But they were always destined to be apart
Except for that split second
During dawn and dusk//

Lately, I've been getting back to my roots by photographing more local artists. I really miss capturing local music and supporting my friends so I'm going to try and to be more present again! 🌼
This photo is from a shoot I did for my dear talented friend's new project, @promiseclub. I'm especially in love w this set because I've always wanted to do a photoshoot at the library. I also had no idea photography was banned at libraries, so technically these photo are kinda illegal and thats pretty cool.
Przypadł mi zaszczyt bycia częścią wyjątkowego projektu, autorstwa @zkubicka ✨. Zdjęcia wpasowane w estetykę, w której czuję się najlepiej, najsilniej, najbardziej kobieco i pewnie. Wizja samej siebie - własnej osobowości, kobiecości przez pryzmat symboliki koloru i poszczególnych detali. ❤️🖤 #girlgaze#red#portrait#portaitphotography

I’ve been making a really conscious effort to try to connect more with other local Indy creatives and locals. In doing so – I think I have a lot of new people following my photo journey on the gram. So here is a bit of an introduction! I’m Loreal and I’ve been into photography for as long as I can remember, but only gave myself permission to consider my work professional throughout the last couple of years. My heart falls for couples hopelessly in love with one another and individuals that are confident in all they have to offer this world. Eager to learn more about you all – drop a fact about yourself below and let’s be friends! / OH, this is me by the way. And two of the biggest pieces of my heart (Java and Danger).
I often lose track of time, the hairs all over my body grow so fast. It is not so much for feminist ideals, but personally I do not have problems. I feel very judge by others, after this photo I shaved myself.
Teaching at workshops is one of my favorite ways to share in the transformation of those around me. It's an honor to be trusted as a teacher and a joy to facilitate self-love, understanding and embracing superpowers.
I really wanted to say something poignant or philosophic, like all the Insta girls do under their selfies, but that’s never been me. I didn’t even want to take this picture, but now I’m thankful I was coaxed into it. Maybe one day I won’t remember. I spent 2 glorious days getting bitten by mosquitos to death, running nearly naked around the village, & cutting my foot on ocean rocks while really I was paranoid about stepping on an urchin (which naturally I did). We cooked our freshly caught fish from the tienda in a toaster oven when the gas ran out and no one was there to fix it. I watched the sunrise and the ocean from this very bed because there was no wall or window blocking the view, although there was a tall and stubborn tree. A very nice local, who sold us a fresh coconut to drink & then cut up the flesh to eat with chili and lime (which make everything bomb.com), explained raicilla in Spanish, which I mostly understood? The hilarity of Vida explaining that you could avoid trouble by not putting that energy out there (partly true, if badly explained). All the incredible love packed so tightly into such short time and the leaps that came out of it. Peace, love and gratitude for shaking me up when I needed it the most after seemingly endless days in SF. The rest, I guess, for my journal. #puravida#mexication#musingsaboutnothing
I’m so afraid of losing my whiteness, that can be explained with this Aldous Huxley’s sentence: "I'm afraid of losing my obscurity. Genuineness only thrives in the dark. Like celery."
