Still time to show your support for all the hard work the NHS has done for us. NHS Celebrating 72 years!Want to show your gratitude and support for our NHS heroes? ➡️ bit.ly/3cQuD5f

Our NHS heroes have been risking their lives to defeat the silent enemy. If you are like us, you'll want to go beyond just clapping to show your appreciation and gratitude.

Please join us to show our NHS Heroes how much we appreciate them by donating just £10 to the NHS Charities Together.

Once you have donated, we will show you our sincere gratitude by gifting you a FREE portrait session and we will pledge another £5 of our own money too. We have even already donated £20 and raised over £2K with all the photographers involved in this initiative.

At this session, we will create for you, your very own 'I supported our NHS Heroes' social media sharing file (like the one shown below).

Availability of sessions are limited and will only be available on a first-come-first-served basis. When they're gone, they're gone!

Imagine turning social media 'NHS-Blue' with your 'I supported our NHS heroes' social media portrait that I create for you.

Please note that sessions will only take place when it is safe to do so and when the studio re-opens from our temporary closed. Donations can't be used for a newborn session due to social distancing measures we are currently not able to provide them.

Still time to show your support for all the hard work the NHS has done for us. NHS Celebrating 72 years!

Thank you so much Lorraine for your amazing recommendation. We always try to deliver the best, even during tough times.

"I don’t know where to begin in recommending lifestudios. Steven and Pauline were so patient, kind and caring with Jake throughout the photoshoot. It was lovely to watch. As new parents everything is a worry but they’re quick to make you feel at ease. Pauline was like a baby whisperer quickly calming Jake when he got upset. During consultation Steven asked what shots we would like to get and we said that one with him resting on his hands, was the one we would love and I loved the fact that he didn’t just say ahh yes no bother he explained why getting that shot is not always possible but we got the shot which was actually way better then expected and caught Jake yawning. The next step was the viewing with Paul. We were sat crying viewing the photos (happy tears of course) and had trouble picking our favourites as they were all fantastic, there was no hard sell to buy. Then covid happened and they got us the photos via download. Then today Paul delivered our order and we are so grateful for going the extra mile for us. Thank you so much!!!!"

Studio re-opening due to Covid-19

From today photography studios are allowed to open if they are able to follow the Covid-19 safety protocols. We have been following the government guidelines and advice intently so as to know when we can safely re-open again.

Due to the nature of working with young babies and small children and spending a lot of time in close proximity to them we still believe that it is too early re-open. The 2 meter distancing would make many of our sessions impractical to undertake.

Although we are allowed to re-open from today we believe that we must put everyones health first and profits last.

In the meantime we have made the decision to improve our studio by making it much better for our clients when we re-open. Some major works will be starting soon. So keep an eye out for more updated images on our progress.

It's is our aim to have the studio re-opened by August 4th to all sessions. We will be contacting any clients that this effects and on our waiting list over the next few days. If you would like to book a session then please PM us or email at info@life-studios.com

We hope everyone is keeping safe and we can't wait to get back to capturing your precious memories.
