"I am so very glad I invested in myself and my business by booking a portrait session with Carla Perez. She is not only extremely talented, but she is just a sweetheart and a pleasure to work with. She consulted with me on clothing and jewelry choices and really understood my brand and aesthetic. I felt confident from day one that the portraits would be just what I wanted and needed. The finished product was more than I could have hoped for. Highly recommend booking a session with Besame Mucho Photography. You will thank yourself!"

A Grieving Daughter's Way Of Celebrating Life.

Photography by Carla Perez at Besame Mucho Photography

Lorie came to my photography studio after her mom passed away. She mentioned to me saying she could not find a picture of her mother for her funeral, she had to go to her mom's employer to get a picture of her. Lorie was devastated that she could not find a picture of her mom that showed her beauty, strength and love.

Lorie decided she was Not going to leave that legacy behind for her children and so we got to work. Lorie wrote to us explaining her story & her experience with us.

Lorie says, "My experience with Carla & Besame Mucho Photography was something I’ve never experienced. I’ve never felt so pretty, it was almost overwhelming. My mother passed away a few months back now & it was very hard to find pictures of her. Not being able to see pictures of her in the light that we all saw her was heartbreaking to say the least. I started thinking about how my children will have the same problem... no pictures of their mom other than terrible selfies because as moms we’re often behind the camera & never the subject. I had reached out to Carla previously but was never able to pull the trigger. About a month after my moms passing, I decided that my kids need a good pic of their mama & I deserve to shine, even if it's just for a moment. Riddled with insecurities & self doubt, I never imagined I’d have an experience like the one I had. Carla sat & talked with me and knew exactly why I was doing this, for my kids. She explained the whole process from start to finish. She offered suggestions on what type of dress to wear along with accessories. She went over every detail with ease & patience as I asked 347 questions. She worked tirelessly to make sure I felt comfortable working with her. She made sure I had all info and was able to prep myself for the big day. Photo shoot day came and I was a nervous wreck. I’m a family photographer. I’m used to chasing small children thru my lens... being in front of the camera is completely out of my comfort zone to say the least. I walked in to her home with tears already welling up because I was so nervous. I sat with her glam team, who is your beauty guru, & OMG what talent! I was shown a mirror & was shocked. I don’t get gussied up often, I hardly recognized myself. The bags under my eyes were gone & for the first time in a long time I wasn’t sad to see my reflection. Then comes the photo shoot. Carla had me stand in front of a long mirror to embrace what she saw, a lovely woman who desperately needed to like what she saw, & I did. For the first time in years... YEARS... I felt pretty. I felt like I was worthy of a second glance. Thats hard to come by nowadays especially when your day consists of cleaning up messes tiny humans leave everywhere (mom life am I right?). I burst into tears and was reminded not to mess up my makeup. After I reeled back my emotions we got to work... and work you will. You will be stretched, posed, & twisted like you’ve never been before. This is def a workout and you will be sore for a few days after but there's good reason for it. In Carla’s outstanding talent, she has an “eye” for sillouettes, for shadows, for angles and poses. She is meticulous & methodical in her shooting. If your pinky finger needs to move 1/2 cm toward your ring finger, she’ll tell you. She wants to make sure its right and if its not she works diligently to make sure it is. Whats amazing about this is not just that she is so particular, it's that she makes it feel easy. From a photographers point, that is so incredibly hard! Its damn near impossible. Her stress of making sure she was getting what she liked was never ever shown or transferred to me. She allowed me to be myself, to smile, and to embrace the loveliness of the experience. We spent hours together & I couldn’t have been more grateful to be one of her subjects. My experience with Carla was unparalleled & one that I would do over again if given the opportunity. She is a wonderful human & I’m sure her mama is bragging in heaven about her."

WOW! I cannot hold my tears back. I am so grateful that I got to meet you, photograph you & I can call you my friend. I am impressed with your strength & beauty that shines through you. You are a remarkable strong woman who can conquer the world. Your children will always remember you, your strength, your patience and all of your beauty. They will forever be in aww of you. It is beautiful gift you will pass down to your children & their children who will always remember you. I know your mom is always with you, guiding you and giving you that extra push. You are making her beam with pride. Love You my dear friend, Thank YOU for taking a moment of your busy day to write this extraordinary review about your experience with me. I am filled with joy, full of love. GRACIAS

Because I have a sister, I will always have a friend.  

I had the pleasure of photographing Sara (in red) for her headshots & beauty portraits.  I helped her with your wardrobe, my glam team did her makeup & hair and I posed her from head to toe. We had such a wonderful day together.  She loved it so much, she bought a photography session for her sister (in blue).  Whaaa?! I know right, what an amazing gift. That there is true sister love. 

These sisters are gorgeous, they sure know how to strike a pose & have a good time.

Sara & Maggie Thank YOU so much for coming to our photography studio and showing us how elegant you ladies are. I sure did have a blast capturing your beauty. Thank YOU!

Dads Will Always Have Our Hearts.

"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.

The Love Experience.

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!

Dreams come to us at every age and stage.  This gorgeous lady is about to graduate and to celebrate she came to us to capture her life long dream of graduating.  She will be the first of her family and she will inspire all that she comes in contact with. 

This is what she had to say:

"Second time was a charm!  As a returning customer, I was extremely pleased with both of my photoshoot(s) with Besame Mucho Photography. Each session was unique and centered around different themes. Absolutely loved all of the images and would recommend Carla, she is truly the best!!! Not only is she a wonderful person at heart but takes care of her customer needs.
Carla creates a fun experience and brings out the inner beauty through her lens. She makes you feel sexy, beautiful and confident, all in a stress free environment. Carla had several dresses to try on and recommended the right ones that would make you look amazing (consult with her prior to the photoshoot). I loved the hair and make-up too. The pictures come out beautiful because of the guidance she provides during her session. She captures wonderful moments that last a lifetime. Let's face it, we all are busy but we deserve to pamper ourselves. If you are looking to get beautiful pictures, have fun, feel sexy and confident, Carla is the girl for you!"

Thank you so much, We are so proud of you and all of your accomplishments. Cheers to you and for your determination on reaching for your dreams. 

We have appointments available for Graduation Portraits, Gift Cards also available for that special Grad! 

 

Women's Day Every Day!

About International Women's Day (8 March)

International Women's Day (March 8) is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women's Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900's - a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. International Women's Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women's network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women's Day. Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

"The story of women's struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights," says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem. Thus International Women's Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action - whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women's Day has been occurring for well over a century - and continue's to grow from strength to strength.-https://www.internationalwomensday.com/About

Here at Besame Mucho Photography we Love to Celebrate women all day everyday.  We understand the importance of existing in photographs, a portrait is forever, it's a legacy.  This is for you and all the people you love.  #BeBoldForChange

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!
