Need a Carefree Day?

As a photographer I have experienced that my clients are a bit anxious and I understand. I have put my self in the same situation and it is a bit nerve wrecking. When I welcome you to my studio I make sure I walk you through, coach you throughout the whole experience.  The anxiety melts away and you shine in every portrait. 

Our lovely client wanted to share her experience and this is what she had to say:

"Carla is one of the most amazing and talented photographers I have ever worked with. Her bubbly personality can put anyone at ease. Carla makes you feel carefree about any concerns or imperfections you feel you may have. She is truly fabulous!"

Thank YOU for trusting us and letting your light shine through in your portraits.

Giving your young self advice.

A woman is unstoppable after she realizes she deserves better.
— unkown

When I was photographing this stunning young woman, I thought to my self, phewww, I am so glad I am not that age any more. Oh man the struggles, in my love life, the pain working at a burger joint for 2 years, going to school and not having a damn clue what I wanted, I was sick of math class and it's damn problems that I had to keep solving, ugh! Lol!

 Then I started to appreciate where I am now, in my age, in my career, and in life.

I asked myself,  if I could go back in time, what advice would I give to my young self? Hmm.... I would tell myself, "Don't sweat it, just keep visualizing what you want, not on how or when you are going to get it. Just keep moving, keep pushing forward. I want to tell my young self that I am strong, deserving, intelligent & my momma didn't raise no fool." LOL. 

I wonder, what would you tell your young self?

Life Is About Moments, It's Not Determined By A Size Or A Number.

No matter what insecurities you are dealing with, changes you want to make, or the quality of the picture... if you are in it, if your children are in it, and making memories that is all that matters. If a picture bothers you, ask yourself if when you look back on it in 10 years, will you wish you had deleted it, or will you be happy you kept evidence of that moment.

You are beautiful. Your children, your loved ones see your true beauty. Capture it... without fear.

You deserve to exists in photographs, by yourself, with your children, husband, mother, family members, everyone! Because when you look back you will not regret it. 

 

Time to Re-Brand/Update for your Business?

When is it time to Update or Re-Brand?

Your old image is obsolete.

You could be in need of a rebrand simply because your old image is obsolete. Design trends change quickly, and in the span of a decade or two. the style, colors and shapes that seemed cool at the time could be laughed at in the modern era as nostalgic leftovers. In these cases, the bulk of the brand can remain intact; instead, you’ll merely update the surface-level features, reshaping your logo, updating your headshots with new wardrobe, new styles, new hair & makeup, which will  update your brand voice and tweaking that voice for modern tastes. 

Also time to update: 

  • You're targeting a new demographic.

  • Your mission or values have changed.

  • Your original brand was botched.

This talented realtor, Erica Urenda who services the Los Angeles & Inland Empire in California, decided to re-brand her business. She contacted me and we talked about her intentions for her new look. We discussed, branding, colors, style and this is what we came up with. Happy to say she was very excited with the new look for her business. If you ever need her services you can find her at her Facebook page by clicking HERE

Shine Bright like a Diamond

This is Eva, she is brilliant young music producer. She really shined bright, getting out of her comfort zone. This is what she had to say about her experience with me (Carla).

"Carla was amazing and so much fun to work with! I had an incredible experience from our first conversation on the phone to the delivery of the photographs. She made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process and her direction during the session eased my worries of the photographs looking staged. She is a perfectionist and will take as many photographs necessary to get the perfect shot.

She is very aware of textures and backgrounds and has a keen eye for wardrobe as she helped me pick and accessorized my outfits. She definitely goes the extra step to provide perfect photos. As a person who is not a model, she was able to bring out and capture the best in me. The turnaround of the photographs was fast. My session could not have gone any better.

Carla is a brilliant photographer. I highly recommend using her for your photo shoot, you'll be glad you did!"

Thank you Eva! I really enjoyed seeing you come out of your comfort zone and Shine bright! I know all of your hard work will pay off. Get it girl! 

I don't want to because I am not...

Image by Carla Perez Besame Mucho Photography.

I have always said to my self, "when I lose the weight I will do..." one of those things was to take Boudoir (sexy/intimate)  portraits of myself.  Before I was going to get married, I really, really wanted to surprise my fiancé with them, but of course, the dreaded, "your too fat for those pictures", voice came along and yup, you guessed it, I didn't take them. Ugh! I regret not taking them. But I take a deep breath and I just let it go (ok, I try).  

As of now, I am at my highest weight, my roundest, chunkiest, stuff jiggles where stuff I thought shouldn't jiggle, but I surprised myself, and it does jiggle, hahahha. Ok, ok, so I got to thinking, why don't I deserve to take sexy pictures of me, just as I am.  I see the beauty in all women at any age, any size, why can't I see it in me. So I called my hair and makeup artist, Lily G, to come over and do her magic on me.  And BAM! This is me at my at my highest weight (pic shown), my roundest, chunkiest, stuff jiggles where stuff I thought shouldn't jiggle, weight. 

I was actually nervous when I did my own photoshoot, I felt what all my clients felt, the nerves, the excitement, the anticipation, the what if I am not pretty enough, not good enough, and the blah blah blah of it all. 

And when all was done, I was speechless, all that doubt, the non deserving voices shut down and I felt Beautiful, but not only on the outside, I fell in love with myself, within ME; Me the person who has gained weight, who has struggled, who fought, who failed, who persevered, who conquered, I fell in LOVE with All of Me. The person I have become on the inside and the outside. I am no longer a weight, I no longer am a jean/dress size, I am Carla. A strong woman who wants to create, encourage, empower, see others conquer and strive. I am so much more that just a number, I am a deserving person. I realized that I was so harsh with myself.  I was talking to my self in such a disgusting, unimaginable way. I would NEVER say that to any one else, but here I was saying it to me on a daily basis. I realized that this way of speaking to my self had to STOP immediately.  The more I see this picture the more I believe in myself, my self worth, that I am deserving of all wonderful things. 

To the person who is stopping themselves from doing what they want to do, because of whatever reason, weight, appearance, race, age, I say take a deep breath and just JUMP!  Your soul deserves to be happy.
