Latina in Business Award

I am truly grateful for the National Latina Business Women Associaiton for awarding me and Besame Mucho Photography as Member of The Year 2018.

Four years ago I created Besame Mucho Photography along side my handsome husband. My vision has been to empower women of all ages, all walks of life & sizes by photographing them and showing them how beautiful they are. I want to represent & showcase my perspective of what beauty is and it's not one size fits all, It is US! It is You. We are Real women who also deserve to feel, look and be empowered by our beauty.

A little over a year ago I decided to join the NLBWA. And what a wonderful year it has been, it is largely thanks to these beautiful Latinas here at the NLBWA that my business is growing and it’s growing strong.

Since joining, I have made an abundance of connections. I have attended lovely events, attended valuable workshops and seminars that helped me learn how to run a business, but most importantly I have made phenomenal friends. Amigas who support each other, encourage each other & who build each other up.

Thank YOU NLBWA for being such a big part of Women entrepreneurs, success, helping us grow, build our connections and most importantly, meeting magnificent friends. Your love and support will always be appreciated!

Cheers to all of you, who are thinking of or who are just starting a new venture and the ones who have been entrepreneurs, NOW is your time to shine. NLBWA is the place to be. Gracias!

What Will Your Children Find?

Dear Mom,

One day your children will look for a photograph of you.

What will they find?

The importance of existing in photographs for your loved ones is priceless. To have & cherish something of you, to remember you, to feel the feelings of love & all the beautiful memories you have created in their lives, is just priceless. 

Take that beautiful portrait that radiates the love you have for your family, it is well worth it. 

 

Out Shine Your Competition.

It is amazing to see small business shine, here is an example why outstanding headshots work.


Butterfly Kisses By Aj says, a client told her, "I chose you over all of those other girls who were cheaper because I liked your picture.” Her client also said, Aj had a beautiful aura surrounding her and that She looked like someone she could trust. 
Aj Thanked us for capturing her spirit and the love She has for others. 
That is exactly our goal here at Besame Mucho Photography, is to stand out from the rest, bring out your beautiful personality to capture your potential clients and make them a client. Nailed it!! 
Thank you Aj Bendtsen for sharing your story 💋💋💋💋💋💋.

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!

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.

Photography by Carla Perez BesameMuchoPhotography.com

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?

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.

The Importance Of Headshots

What image do you have on your Website, Social Media, or any marketing material you use with your image on it.  Would you hire you? If you are having trouble answering it, probably you may need an updated image, maybe rebrand or simply just have an Outstanding headshot of yourself.

It is so important for business owners to engage with their potential clients.  Have your clients feel they can trust you, that you are knowledgable and make them feel that you and your business are legit.

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

Contact us if you want to update your old business portraits, we can help. 949.478.4374 inquiry.bmp@gmail.com Contact Carla.

Being a new mom and entrepreneur has it's challenges, but oh so rewarding. Jenn was so excited about her new baby and decided she wanted to have something memorable to pass down to her new daughter.  This is from our wonderful client Jen,

"Our experience with Carla and Besame Mucho Photography was absolutely amazing from consultation to choosing and receiving prints! 

I had a vision and she helped make that dream glamour maternity shoot come into fruition! My husband was even excited to take a few shots that turned out perfect and are displayed in our home to remember the beautiful pregnancy we experienced. I looked exactly how I imagined and never felt better! I loved how professional, thoughtful, personal, honest and all around great Carla was! I am happy to have these memories forever thanks to BesameMucho photography."

Thank YOU so much Jenn for your amazing, and kind words. It was such a pleasure meeting you, your husband and your little baby bump. It fills my heart knowing that we were able to  capture your vision and make your dream glamour maternity shoot come to life. We are so grateful that I was able to meet your beautiful family.
