Lifestudios was established in 2006 by Paul and Steven Hattam, a father and son partnership to bring a fresh and fun approach to modern family portrait photography.
Lifestudios aims to create a friendly and personal feel to every portrait experience, with each family member taken care of and made to feel welcome. As every family is different Paul and Steven make sure that there is plenty of time to get to know you before your shoot and also so you can get to know them so you feel comfortable and relaxed.
This family-friendly personal approach results in relaxed, fun and characterful portraits that capture real memories of your family to keep and cherish for a lifetime.

What people say about us
Amazing photos and a lovely and relaxing experience, came for the newborn shoot with my 7 day old little girl and 3 year old boy, so professional and friendly throughout the shoot. Will definitely be returning soon. Highly recommended!

We were blown away with the quality of customer care when we came for our photo shoot with Amelia.
We were a little scared she wouldn’t settle but were soon put at ease and were welcomed into a lovely cosy warm snug room where she settled immediately.
We cant recommend Life studios enough, wonderful professional attentive people, fantastic service and amazing photography.
We cant wait to see the finished product.
Thank you so much xx

5* treatment off such lovely, patient professionals. I had the newborn shoot where my daughter and I were well looked after. Baby was totally taken care of and I got to sit back relax and enjoy the viewing. Photographs are amazing, looking forward to going back already for our family photoshoot. Highly recommended
