Lorie came to my photography studio after her mom passed away. She mentioned to me saying she could not find a picture of her mother for her funeral, she had to go to her mom's employer to get a picture of her. Lorie was devastated that she could not find a picture of her mom that showed her beauty, strength and love.
Lorie decided she was Not going to leave that legacy behind for her children and so we got to work. Lorie wrote to us explaining her story & her experience with us.
Lorie says, "My experience with Carla & Besame Mucho Photography was something I’ve never experienced. I’ve never felt so pretty, it was almost overwhelming. My mother passed away a few months back now & it was very hard to find pictures of her. Not being able to see pictures of her in the light that we all saw her was heartbreaking to say the least. I started thinking about how my children will have the same problem... no pictures of their mom other than terrible selfies because as moms we’re often behind the camera & never the subject. I had reached out to Carla previously but was never able to pull the trigger. About a month after my moms passing, I decided that my kids need a good pic of their mama & I deserve to shine, even if it's just for a moment. Riddled with insecurities & self doubt, I never imagined I’d have an experience like the one I had. Carla sat & talked with me and knew exactly why I was doing this, for my kids. She explained the whole process from start to finish. She offered suggestions on what type of dress to wear along with accessories. She went over every detail with ease & patience as I asked 347 questions. She worked tirelessly to make sure I felt comfortable working with her. She made sure I had all info and was able to prep myself for the big day. Photo shoot day came and I was a nervous wreck. I’m a family photographer. I’m used to chasing small children thru my lens... being in front of the camera is completely out of my comfort zone to say the least. I walked in to her home with tears already welling up because I was so nervous. I sat with her glam team, who is your beauty guru, & OMG what talent! I was shown a mirror & was shocked. I don’t get gussied up often, I hardly recognized myself. The bags under my eyes were gone & for the first time in a long time I wasn’t sad to see my reflection. Then comes the photo shoot. Carla had me stand in front of a long mirror to embrace what she saw, a lovely woman who desperately needed to like what she saw, & I did. For the first time in years... YEARS... I felt pretty. I felt like I was worthy of a second glance. Thats hard to come by nowadays especially when your day consists of cleaning up messes tiny humans leave everywhere (mom life am I right?). I burst into tears and was reminded not to mess up my makeup. After I reeled back my emotions we got to work... and work you will. You will be stretched, posed, & twisted like you’ve never been before. This is def a workout and you will be sore for a few days after but there's good reason for it. In Carla’s outstanding talent, she has an “eye” for sillouettes, for shadows, for angles and poses. She is meticulous & methodical in her shooting. If your pinky finger needs to move 1/2 cm toward your ring finger, she’ll tell you. She wants to make sure its right and if its not she works diligently to make sure it is. Whats amazing about this is not just that she is so particular, it's that she makes it feel easy. From a photographers point, that is so incredibly hard! Its damn near impossible. Her stress of making sure she was getting what she liked was never ever shown or transferred to me. She allowed me to be myself, to smile, and to embrace the loveliness of the experience. We spent hours together & I couldn’t have been more grateful to be one of her subjects. My experience with Carla was unparalleled & one that I would do over again if given the opportunity. She is a wonderful human & I’m sure her mama is bragging in heaven about her."
WOW! I cannot hold my tears back. I am so grateful that I got to meet you, photograph you & I can call you my friend. I am impressed with your strength & beauty that shines through you. You are a remarkable strong woman who can conquer the world. Your children will always remember you, your strength, your patience and all of your beauty. They will forever be in aww of you. It is beautiful gift you will pass down to your children & their children who will always remember you. I know your mom is always with you, guiding you and giving you that extra push. You are making her beam with pride. Love You my dear friend, Thank YOU for taking a moment of your busy day to write this extraordinary review about your experience with me. I am filled with joy, full of love. GRACIAS

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!
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.
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 💋💋💋💋💋💋.

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.
New Year, New Headshots.
Start the New Year with our glam team making you over. They will do your hair & makeup. At no extra cost you will have a personal shopper, stylist & a photographer, Carla Perez, guiding you through every pose & expression, so you can look & feel your absolute best in your portraits.
It is always a good idea to have your headshots updated once a year. You business, your brand and you change a bit year after year. Make sure your clients & potential clients see the best version of you. They want to know they will be well taken care of.
Because I have a sister, I will always have a friend.
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.
Celebrating your birthday is something special, especially when you have never existed in photographs, when you have always put everyone else first, your children, husband, family, business and so on.
Now is the time to Celebrate you! This stunning woman decided to do her 60's right. She wanted to feel & look radiant, and that is what we did.
Imagine your special day with pampering, getting your hair, makeup done & topping it all off with epic portraits that you can cherish forever.
We wish you many more years filled with love, health & wealth. Love you
It is time for family, friends and lots of love. The holidays are upon us and we are wrapping up another loving year. It is always beautiful being surrounded by the ones you love and the ones who love you. So, this year please hug tight the ones around you, feel the love, be grateful and LAUGH.
These loving sisters sure know how to have a good time. The love shines through these beauties.
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.
