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

Dads Will Always Have Our Hearts.

Portraits by Carla Perez Besame Mucho Photography

Portraits by Carla Perez Besame Mucho Photography

"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 Rose

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 inquiry.bmp@gmail.com.

 

 

 

How I Felt About My Own Before & After

"AS A PHOTOGRAPHER AND ARTIST I CAN SEE BEAUTY.  I KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE, AND I CAN FIND IT IN ANYONE."

As a woman, it's often a challenge to see my own beauty. I think i'm perfectly average looking, cute, even. When I pull myself together using some tricks up my sleeve, I'd even go as far as to say I'm pretty."

I decided to do my own self-portraits to get a feeling of what my clients feel.  Even though I was taking my own pictures, I still felt nervous. I didn't know what to wear, what I wanted for hair and makeup and oh what if I look really fat, I haven't lost any pounds, I actually gained weight, ugh! Fear came over me and the nerves started to shake me, but I held my ground, and quickly started to shut off the voices in my head that said, "you are not skinny enough, pretty enough, and blah blah blah." When all was said and done, I saw my images and I was speechless. 

"SUDDENLY I WAS A WOMAN SEEING HERSELF AT HER MOST BEAUTIFUL, I WAS NO LONGER THE OVERWEIGHT WOMAN,

I WAS NOW SEXY!" 

I no longer saw my self as a number, a pant size, I saw My Beauty, my true self. After reviewing all of my images, I saw in some images I was confident, in others I was sweet, and in other images I am elegant and sexy. The greatest challenge I faced when choosing a single favorite image, is that I am a multi-faceted woman with depth and warmth and beauty that no single photograph can capture. I am not a 'before' picture, or even an 'after.' I am an artist, wife, sister, friend, and a whole lot of fun to be around. 

"I AM A WOMAN, AND

I AM BEAUTIFUL."

I'd love for you to have your own experience of seeing yourself. When you're ready to design your dream photoshoot, don't hesitate to contact us.  To get more details about the luxury portrait sessions we offer, please contact us at Besame Mucho Photography or call us at 949-478-4374.
