About Lumiere Photography
Finding beauty in everyone, every moment.
I shoot from the heart.
A bit about me
I’m from Provence and live in Loughborough, Leicestershire, with my husband, Alkesh, our cats and we’re happiest when our kids visit us. See the video to find out more.
I love people, animals, nature, traveling. Photography is a way to be in awe of the beauty of each person, each moment, to be grateful. I shoot wherever I am. You can see some photos I take for pleasure here– I sell them as cards/ posters.
I practice meditation and yoga and love dancing. I put my heart in whatever I do.
Why do I focus on authenticity?
My mother loved photos. She took us to photographic studios where we posed awkwardly. She has many photos on her walls but every time I look at my photos I cringe. They might be good images but they’re not me and I remember having to pose to look like the photo they wanted, they were not about me, more about the photographer. I hated the sessions.
The photos I do like from my childhood are those my mum took of us kids playing or dreaming, but I don’t have any photos of my parents and us, since they were taking the photos.
So what I do is make sure you have a great time together, and the photos are the memories of that. They capture exactly who you all are, the fun you have, the love you share, all of you together, so both you and your kids can look back and enjoy remembering .

“Alix is able to take such wonderful photographs not just because of her skill with a camera, but because of her passion for people. She captures the essence of the moment in a flash with a photo you’ll treasure forever. She takes time to get to know you and your wishes. She’s wonderful with everyone including children and babies. From the start she makes it her mission to make you feel at ease and smile, which is why her photos are all so natural and not posed. Her clients come back for more which is surely the greatest recommendation!”
