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.

Imagine your special day with pampering, getting your hair, makeup done & topping it all off with epic portraits that you can cherish forever.

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!

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.

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.

Best Time To Book Senior Portraits.

Images by Carla Perez from Besame Mucho Photography

Your senior year will be full of momentous occasions, including your senior pictures. From touring university campuses to enjoying your final football games and dances as a high school student, your weekends and afternoons after school are sure to be packed. As you start planning your schedule, remember to leave plenty of time for everything related to your portraits.

The summer after your junior year is when senior picture season officially starts. Although it may seem too early, it really isn’t; this is the best time to start looking online for a local photographer. Plan to spend a couple of weeks going through your options and talking with a few different photographers about what you want to see in your pictures. They’ll also have questions for you, and may give you a questionnaire to determine whether or not you’re a good fit for each other.

Once you’ve secured a photographer, the two of you will start discussing the art direction you’d like for your senior portraits. This means deciding on an aesthetic, booking a venue, and of course, going shopping for your outfits. It’s a good idea to have your outfits – including shoes – selected at least two weeks before your photo shoot. This way, you’ll have time to wear your new clothes and shoes to make sure they fit comfortably. With Besame Mucho Photography, we have the options of going to your closet to see if there is anything we like, we can go out and shop together or the most popular one, give us your sizes and we will do the shopping for you (at NO extra cost).

Speak with your photographer about any makeup artists or hairstylists on their team. If you like their work and they have an open schedule, booking your trials with them will be a lot easier and less frustrating than getting these appointments done elsewhere. However, if that’s your only option, make sure to schedule your appointment so that there’s about an hour between it and your photo shoot. This time will act as a buffer between appointments in case you run into traffic or you have a hair emergency.  With Besame Mucho Photography we have a professional team of Hair and Makeup Artist who are eager to make you feel gorgeous. 

If you can, book your photo shoot in the months between the start of the fall semester and the holiday season. Once you return from winter vacation and begin your final spring semester of college, finding the time to go shopping for your senior pictures, book a venue, actually take your photos, and schedule any potential re-shoots will be difficult. Plus, you’ll want to have your graduation announcements ready and printed by spring. And if your photographer doesn’t partner with a graphic designer and print shop, you’ll need another few days to select a printer.

Also, be aware of any yearbook deadlines. Don’t wait to ask about when you should submit your senior photos. Be proactive and do this as soon as possible. Remember there’s always a chance that your yearbook committee will need to review your class’s senior portraits and possibly ask for resubmissions if outfits or other criteria don’t match your school’s standards.

Here at Besame Mucho Photography we want to make you experience unforgettable and want you to look and feel beautiful. We have plenty of options to make this experience easy, one stop shop and know that you will have gorgeous portraits that will last a life time.

Girl Power, Senior Portraits.

Images by Carla Perez Besame Mucho Photography

Being a young woman this day in age must be so conflicting. In a way, I think, all the information is at your fingertips, at the same time, you are being bombarded with too much information about who and what you should be and look like. It must be at times confusing to choose or even imagine what you want to be. 

Our goals as parents, guardians (in my case Aunt), is to help our young adults reach for their goals, aspirations in a safe, loving, encouraging way. Guide them on their path, so their journey is not as traitorous.  We can only do so much for them, because at the end they are the ones who make the choices and the ones who are walking their path.

My goal as a photographer is to help ease their minds, build their confidence, empower their souls to keep pushing through all the noise that sets them back.  I want them to feel loved, brilliant and oh so beautiful.  Not only on the outside, but on the inside. I want to capture their smiles that light up the room, I want to capture what you see in your child everyday, and also capture them right at that moment when they are in this age right now.  They grow up so fast, at a blink of an eye, they are off to college, away from home. 

I remember when I was a teenager, I took some "Glamour Shots" at the mall. I remember it helping my self esteem, I remember feeling beautiful, loving, intelligent, and that I must keep going on my amazing path. I was eager to find out what I would become.  When I look back at those pictures, I am able to remember my youth and I smile knowing that I survived my youth. 

It is always such a delight to see your daughter come into her own, and have amazing portraits to remember her as your little girl. 

 

Reaching for the Stars!

It is Never to late to reach for your goals. 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!
