Aurélie Beeston is a genius behind the lens. She's also a deft touch at processing photographs - ensuring the best light and truest beauty is brought out in each shot. Which is the technical way of saying damn, she's good at getting rid of my flaws.
We did this photoshoot a few weeks' back: Aurelie wanted to experiment with sun flare and urban settings using her new Canon; and I'm a shameless narcissist who loves posing.
I know it is one of the truisms of my life as a Modern Woman that while I wish to be valued and admired for my intelligence, wit and creative skills - by goodness I won't say no to looking swish in the odd photoshoot.
No wonder you blokes get fed up with us chicks. WE ARE FULL OF INTERNAL CONFLICT.
The point is, I'm very excited to see that Aurelie has finally launched a website of her work; with more to come. I highly recommend her services to anyone out there looking for a photographer for weddings, portraits - anything.
Her website also features a full slideshow of my photoshoot, complete with a funky French backing track.
