1. Create your own Valentine's Day Cards with your Dog.
I did a self portrait with my buddy, Chubbs. This was our Valentine's Day card last year. Our friends & family really enjoyed receiving a cute valentine's day card. I printed & created it on Vistaprint.com
2. Make them special doggie treats.
I have found a easy to do at home doggie treats. Here is the recipe for your special Valentine.
Homemade Dog Treats Recipe
4 strips crispy bacon, crumbled
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups oatmeal
2 large eggs
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Mix the bacon, cheese and oatmeal. You can use a mixer with a paddle or a chopper to make the pieces small.
Add eggs and blend until sticky.
Lay out on a layer of oats on a cutting board to prevent sticking and top with treat mixture. Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to form as desired.
Bake approximately 20 minutes or until slightly golden. Let cool.
Optional Dog Treat Icing Recipe
2 Tablespoons cornstarch
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon honey
3-5 drops of food coloring, if desired (or you can naturally color with beet juice)
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.
Paint onto the treats and refrigerate to set!
2. A long romantic walk on the beach
Enjoy the water, the sand and a good walk.
3. And everyones favorite, snuggle, cuddle, take a nap.

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!

Here is what Eunice said about her experience with Besame Mucho Photography: "I don't know if I can express what a great experience we had with Carla at Besame Mucho. My mom always wanted to get dolled up and photographed, and Carla made it happened.
She was great to work with and gave us a lot of direction which we needed! Carla was very patient with us, even after adding my sister to the group. Carla has the passion and drive to be a great photographer, as well as impeccable style. She knows what looks great and what works, she is top notch, and we were delighted. The only thing my mom was concerned about was her hairstyle and make-up. It was a great and fantastic experience, and I look forward to getting my boudoir shoot soon!"
I loved having you and your amazing family over for a fantastic girls day. You guys are so sweet & loving, you guys made my day. Thank YOU so much for your kind words, My heart is full of joy & gratitude. It was a pleasure photographing you beautiful ladies.
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.
Monday is here & we are going to kick ass all the way through Friday.
Here is how:
Sep 1: Create your To Do list
Step 2: Prioritize
Step 3: Start checking these little mofos off your list.
Step 4: Smile, take a deep breath. Stay focus, productive and always be kind to yourself, if it doesn't get done; There is always tomorrow.
Perseverance is in this woman's genes. Despite the changes in her life, she has decided that she wants to exists in photographs, look fabulous & keep moving forward with her business, new life, new her. Life is Good!
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?
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 email@example.com.
At Besame Mucho Photography, we are celebrating our assistant & best friend, Chubbs. We are celebrating a Big Milestone for him, Chubbs turned 10 this July & we are over the moon.
"How Beautiful Is It To Find Someone Who Asks For Nothing But Your Company."-Unknown
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.
"Femininity is not just lipstick, stylish hairdos and trendy clothes. It is the divine adornment of humanity. It finds expression in your qualities of your capacity to love your spirituality, delicately, radiance, sensitivity, creativity, charm, graciousness, gentleness, dignity and quiet strength. It manifests differently in each girl or women, but each of you possess it. Femininity is part of your inner beauty." -James E. Faust.
I am in love with this description of Femininity. It is more than just what we look in the outside, it is what we are in the inside. Once we feel wonderful, loved, cherished, accomplished, strong, and even in our not so good days, when things are not going our way, we are full of strength and Beauty. Love the inner beauty and it will radiate on the outside, and you will illuminate the world. You can also book an empowering photoshoot, showing of your femininity with us at Besame Mucho Photography . I would love change the way you see yourself.
This is from our lovely client Sandie,
"From the minute I walked into her house she had a big smile on her face and gave me a warm hug. I was a little nervous since I hadn't done a photo shoot for many moons, but with her sense of humor and warmth I was able relax in no time! She has a way to accentuate whatever body type you might have and make you look amazing!! She has a gift for what she does and makes her clients feel very comfortable which together make beautiful natural looking pictures. One other thing, you will be laughing cause she's super funny..."
Thank YOU Sandie, I sure love to laugh and make it a fun day for you and me too. It feels great to be able to photoshoot amazing women entrepreneurs like yourself, to empower and be able to show your clients that you are confident, capable and willing to help them with their needs.
