Dads Will Always Have Our Hearts.

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.

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. 

 

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.

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

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

Baby Bump it.

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.

Momma-prenuer!

Dianey is a stay at home Mom and a Momma-prenure, she runs her house and her own business. She shares her experience with Besame Mucho Photography.

Dianey says, "I loved getting my hair done and getting dressed into a gorgeous dress. As a stay at home mom I don't get dolled up all the time and that made me feel super special. I was so comfortable in my own skin thanks to your kindness and encouragement.  I appreciate that you did not rush me and you found the best angles and poses to work for my body type. When it came to the photos of my girls and my family I again couldn't be happier. You were extremely patient with my little ones and again gave them time to adjust. Their photos are amazing and I love every single one of them. My favorite pictures would have to be the family photo because well aside of being gorgeous it's my family, I love every single one of the one of my girls photos. As far as mine I love them all as well but if I had to choose I would have to say the one where I"m on the couch with a slight smile. But that's only if I had to choose cause they are all amazing. I think you are amazing at what you do and will be looking forward to another session with you."  

Thank you for sharing Dianey.  It is wonderful as a stay at home mom to get all dolled up and being treated as a model for a day. All the was on you, feels good to be the one taken care of.   I am so delighted that you and your family had a great time here with me. They were such a joy to be with and photograph.

This is a great way to feel & look sexy.

Valentine's Day is my most celebrated holiday. I LOVE Love. I love being in love, surrounded by love, giving love, so Valentine's day is my day, in my case month ;) 

Marysol did a very sexy photoshoot with me to celebrate her beauty, her curves, her smile and to celebrate Life. Here is what she had to say about us.

"Carla went above and beyond the call of duty as a photographer. We met several times before our actual session to ensure we would be a good team. She even took me shopping so we could select attire that suits my body. I had previous experiences with photographers and I mentioned to her what I didn't want in our session. She nailed it

The pictures she took are of high quality. They accentuate my body. She made this photoshoot personal and it reflects my personality. I loved it! She also knows how to pose so she helps you along the way while shooting.

I'm a model who was looking to enhance my modeling portfolio. Her pictures have been an amazing addition. I've had so many great comments.

Not only will she give you high quality photos but she as a person and woman is just amazing. 
She's of course professional but she's caring, funny, organized and very inspiring. I loved working with her!"

Thank YOU Marysol, I absolutely loved photographing you. You were so fun and easy to shoot. I had so much fun, we laughed too much as well. If you have any questions for Valentine's Day portraits, contact me anytime. I am here to help.
