1. Create your own Valentine's Day Cards with your Dog.
I did a self portrait with my buddy, Chubbs. This was our Valentine's Day card last year. Our friends & family really enjoyed receiving a cute valentine's day card. I printed & created it on Vistaprint.com
2. Make them special doggie treats.
I have found a easy to do at home doggie treats. Here is the recipe for your special Valentine.
Homemade Dog Treats Recipe
4 strips crispy bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
2 large eggs
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the bacon, cheese and oatmeal. You can use a mixer with a paddle or a chopper to make the pieces small.
Add eggs and blend until sticky.
Lay out on a layer of oats on a cutting board to prevent sticking and top with treat mixture. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to form as desired.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until slightly golden. Let cool.
Optional Dog Treat Icing Recipe
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon honey
3-5 drops of food coloring, if desired (or you can naturally color with beet juice)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Paint onto the treats and refrigerate to set!
2. A long romantic walk on the beach
Enjoy the water, the sand and a good walk.
3. And everyones favorite, snuggle, cuddle, take a nap.
"Dads hold our hands for a while & hold our hearts forever."-Unknown.
This is my dad, we just celebrated his 85th birthday. A month ago he suffered a heart attack which is quite scary. So I decided to do a photoshoot with my dad to capture his super human powers. He is my hero, my man of steel. He has always been there for his family, yet he is not perfect, but he has worked so hard for his family to have everything we have ever needed. He has gone far & beyond for us. He makes us laugh & loves us no matter what.
My mom past away 7 years ago, so I know that I am going to cherish this image even more so when he is gone. Unfortunately, I didn't do a photoshoot with my mom because, I thought we would always have tomorrow. Tomorrow came & she was gone.
Don't always rely on tomorrow for something special, do it now. Make the time to make memories with the ones you love, you will always have that in your heart.
Celebrating your birthday is something special, especially when you have never existed in photographs, when you have always put everyone else first, your children, husband, family, business and so on.
Now is the time to Celebrate you! This stunning woman decided to do her 60's right. She wanted to feel & look radiant, and that is what we did.
Imagine your special day with pampering, getting your hair, makeup done & topping it all off with epic portraits that you can cherish forever.
We wish you many more years filled with love, health & wealth. Love you
We had the honor of photographing this amazing couple who is getting married. They are celebrating their engagement and the bride to be is gifting him something sexy for the big day. The bride to be shared her experience with us.
This is what she had to say, "Carla is an amazing, passionate, fun, talented, heart-warming, personable, and professional photographer who tremendously exceeds her client’s expectations. She has a keen eye for detail and most importantly, can make any woman feel beautiful, comfortable, and sexy! I originally requested a photography session so I could gift my fiancé a couple of sexy and fun pictures before our wedding. Needless to say, my photography session with Carla also turned into an engagement photography session, and it was highly appreciated since our original engagement photography session with our own wedding photographer had been cancelled due to gloomy weather. Carla came to our rescue! It’s no wonder Carla was picked top 14 out of 82 photographers for Best Photographers serving Irvine for 2017. My fiancé and I were impressed with the end result: timeless, high quality pictures/portraits that reflected our personality and most importantly, they were delivered in a timely manner, just as Carla had promised. Did I mention we also had a genuinely, fun time and Carla went out of her way to create a couple of personable/intimate and also public approved videos/slideshows?!?! Wow, we definitely felt the VIP treatment from the beginning to end. We highly recommend Carla for any photography needs. You will be impressed with her talented photography, communication, personable, and professional skills. She takes tremendous pride in delivering only the best quality work, genuinely cares, listens to your needs and makes appropriate recommendations. I will definitely be her lifetime client. Thank you Carla for exceeding my expectations!"
Congratulations on you engagement and we wish you many happy, loving years to come. Cheers!
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.

Sep 1: Create your To Do list

Step 3: Start checking these little mofos off your list.
Step 4: Smile, take a deep breath. Stay focus, productive and always be kind to yourself, if it doesn't get done; There is always tomorrow.
Perseverance is in this woman's genes. Despite the changes in her life, she has decided that she wants to exists in photographs, look fabulous & keep moving forward with her business, new life, new her. Life is Good!
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?
Have you ever loved a rose, & watched her slowly bloom; & as her petals would unfold, you grew drunk on her perfume...-Lang Leav
This photoshoot was a great way for my client to stop & smell the roses. Her life, as many other women, are filled with full time jobs, children, husbands, house work, cooking, being a chauffeur and so on and so on. On this day she was able to enjoy being pampered to, getting her hair & makeup done, getting her wardrobe styled & best of all we captured her beauty on this wall of flowers. We had a wonderful day changing wardrobe, looks, backgrounds, I guided her through every pose & expression so she can look her absolute best in every portrait.
Sometimes we have to stop & let others care for us. We need to let our hair down and have fun. Why not do it with beautiful portraits of yourself looking fabulous. A great way to escape the everyday routine of life with a little bit of glam and excitement. Time to stop & smell the roses, time to Celebrate you.
You can always contact us for a free consultation at 949-478-4374 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
At Besame Mucho Photography, we are celebrating our assistant & best friend, Chubbs. We are celebrating a Big Milestone for him, Chubbs turned 10 this July & we are over the moon.
"How Beautiful Is It To Find Someone Who Asks For Nothing But Your Company."-Unknown
Congratulations, you said Yes, & about to say "I Do." This is such an exciting moment in you life where you are planning not only your dream wedding, but an amazing journey with your Fiancé.
Are you thinking of a gift for your groom to be? This gorgeous photoshoot with your wedding gown & or you in sexy bridal lingerie, will be a shocking surprise for your groom. It will make his jaw drop to see his bride looking & feeling gorgeous.
This is such a beautiful memory you can always look back on for many many years of when you started your life with each other.
Also if this is something you really want, you can always register for gift cards for your photoshoot with your engagement party, bachelorette, bridal party, or wedding.
Oh Valentine's Day, how much I love thee. I am in love with love and this month of love holds a special meaning for me, my husband asked me to be his girlfriend, awe. So I like to get creative on this month, not only for my husband but for my sisters, girlfriends and ME.
This year, instead of chocolates and flowers, consider this:
A little succulent garden. We’ll never get over how lush and long-lasting succulent plants can be. These little cuties charm anyone with their infinite shapes and varieties and colors, and they’ll last a long, long time. I can kill anything (plants), these puppies last.
A day out. Yeah. Spend the whole day together. Is it binge-watching Celia on Netflix, Is it meandering aimlessly around town? Or is it a wine-tasting tour? Give it a try. After all, Valentine’s is a day to do what you love with whomever you love.
A better way to chocolate. If your Valentine really loves chocolate, why not give them a tour of a chocolate factory, or, better yet, take a workshop with them on how to make it? A quick search will turn up a number of options in your area.
Okay, one for the bedroom. How about trying something really new with your Valentine? Sexy, portraits of you or with your love, Couple Boudoir photoshoot. We offer them here at Besame Mucho Photography.
What was your favorite Valentine’s Day gift ever? And what are you planning for this year?
