Let’s just say this has been an interesting ride the past few days.   She’s claiming to be very sorry and to have taken everything down yet her Instagram feed is still full of works she’s claiming as her own but are stolen.  Many of these images are from tumblr so finding the original source is a bit tricky.  Note that the tub image with the blue wall behind it was uploaded just an hour ago.

Update 08/16/2014 @ 4:30PM

Added more images from Instagram which aren’t her original works.

 Update 08/16/2014 @ 9:30PM

Teresa uploaded yet another image to her instagram and tagged it with #shotbyteresablaukurs.

I decided to go ahead and reapprove all of her posts she made late Thursday night/early Friday morning which resulted in us calling the cops to her house to do a welfare check.  Nobody is Perfect, Ghjfyvcf, Not asking for too much  = Teresa.  Some remain deleted due to the racial slurs and other derogatory remarks she made.

Update 08/26/2014 

I decided to upload the PDF I have of her instagram feed.   You can view it here.   What I posted here was just the very tip of the iceberg of the stolen images she has on her feed.  If you click around the pics you can get to the images via the direct link.

Update 09/19/2014

Unsurprisingly, Teresa rebranded and was back at things again two weeks ago with a new identity, Charlotte Jane Photography.  No website that I’ve found but she has been working and using an Instagram account to promote herself and gain employment.  The problem is this new Instagram account is largely populated with stolen images… yet again.  The other day it came out when one of the photographers found her own work on Teresa’s page.  Who knows if Teresa was planning on submitting these images for publication like the last round but she IS stealing again.   I sourced some of the images below but some didn’t pop on searches here is the PDF of her instagram account.  I also have a screen capture of every image.  Many of the original photographers were found and had made comments to remove their content.  Her instagram account appears to be down now but it’s unknown of Teresa took it down when outed or if instagram took it down.  Note that she’s being sponsored by at least one makeup brand and appears to have been possibly hired by Alice + Olivia to photograph their NYFW show.

Update 06/09/2015

She’s back with yet another new alias and another stolen image.  She is now “slumberdolldiary” on Instagram and has a website.  The images on Instagram appear to be her or hers but the website’s image is not hers.

Update 10/27/2015

She’s back with a new alias.
