About Lola


Hi! I am glad you are here!

Hello! I am Lola! I have been documenting my life on the internet through photos since the late 90’s, in 2012 after getting burnt out from Facebook, downloaded this new photo app called Instagram. I was going to to grad school at the time, after scrolling for about 8 months through the app(lurking really), in January 7th of 2013 I decided to post my first photo. I just wanted to share my recipes, eats and travels.

I was born in the beautiful island of Puerto Rico, left my islita to venture new horizons when I was in my early twenties. Around that time I arrived to Texas and have been here ever since calling San Antonio my second home. We are a military family and are currently living in Washington State.

I love creating simple recipes, share local eateries, fun places and cool things to do. I am really a homebody so cooking at home and watching true crime shows is my jam!

I don’t have any formal photography training, I am a self taught photographer. I have always been that one person in my friend’s group that had a camera.  In 2013 I purchased a DSLR Nikon D3200 and decided that I was going to learn everything the camera could do inside out. I went to You Tube for resources and shot everyday. In 2017 I upgraded to the Nikon D750 full frame camera. I also invested in the Foodtography School and it is one of the best things I could have done for myself and my photography. You have to be a lifetime student of your craft  if you want to succeed.

I have a Masters Degree in Counseling and Guidance from Texas A&M (Gi’ gem!) and I am a License Professional Counselor (Therapist). I moved to Washington State in the summer and currently I am not practicing.

Blogging and Instagram are my side jobs and I make a decent amount of income by partnering with brands, taking pictures for restaurants, styling photography and portraits.

I am excited to share my corner of the internet with you. Thank you for being here and your unconditional support.
