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!

"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.
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.

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?
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 firstname.lastname@example.org Contact Carla.
I am a photographer, and I mostly photograph women. I have not encountered one woman who loves the way she looks. There is always something they have to say about their appearance, and it's not always in a positive way. I meet women from every age, race, size, and they all have negative body images.
I want to change that, I will start with my self. I am teaching my self that every curve, scar, stretch mark, mole, frizzy hair, that I am beautiful and I am loved. I should not seek to magazines, society to help me see my own true beauty. I will NOT compare my body to any other. This body has helped me survive, tough out, walk/run on my journey. And I LOVE that my body has helped me get through all of the physically, mentally challenging journey that I a have. I am going to celebrate it by loving me through and through.
I shall not compare woman, I WILL capture their true beauty and I will change her mind on how BEAUTIFUL she really is.
I love what I do, Capturing your true beauty, so you can Conquer the World.
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
The Benefits Of Getting Professional Headshots
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.
