“PHOTOGRAPHY TAKES AN INSTANT OUT
OF TIME, ALTERING LIFE BY HOLDING IT STILL”
AMY’S STORY: In 2013, after a long battle with infertility, Amy’s husband bought her a DSLR camera to aid as a light distraction from her painful reality and Photography to Remember was born. Her passion for what she did never faltered throughout her personal heartbreak however just a year later after the 3rd round of IVF Amy gave birth to her precious miracle, Levi.
Amy will work in collaboration with you to ensure that the photo shoot is tailored just for you. This is your photo shoot, your moment to hold for a lifetime. A consultation is held with all clients for a detailed discussion on everything from set styling to outfits, hair, and make-up as well as understanding what you are looking for from your ideal location or in studio requirements.
Photography to Remember owns and manages a fully equipped professional photography studio in Cape Town with a treasure trove of beautiful backdrops, props, and stunning outfits for your dream photo shoot.
“Dorothea Lange once said; Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still”

– MEET THE TEAM –
I am currently a student at the IMM Graduate School of Marketing studying a Postgraduate Diploma in Marketing Management.
I love assisting on Newborn & Cake Smash photoshoots with Amy, the little ones look so adorable and those shoots in particular are just so much fun. I have become something of a whizz with a froggie bubble machine to help get the little ones giggling and having fun!
Assisting Amy has been great, she is so passionate about what she does and I hope to work with her soon on capturing your special shoot, helping to create memories for you that will last a lifetime.
Makeup & Hair Artist
I am a qualified make-up artist and hairstylist having qualified at the Kohl Make-Up Academy in Cape Town. I run my own Make-Up and Hairstyling business offering services for a variety of occasions from weddings to Matric Dances and one of my favourite bookings – photoshoots.
I have been working with Amy for just over a year and absolutely love working with the mommies coming in for shoots with their beautiful bumps or little newborn bundles.
I like to make sure that they walk on to set feeling a little less like an exhausted mommy and more like the warrior woman that they are.
My love for sewing began when I was just 7 years old! I am passionate about sewing and design. I specialise in affordable bridal wear as well as bespoke children’s clothing from casual wear to intricate detailed mini gowns for special occasions.
Amy and I have known each other a long time and have been working on designs together for bespoke maternity gowns for the last few years. Every expectant mom is beautifully unique and I love being able to create outfits that help transform them, making them feel confident and beautiful for their special photo shoot.
I have a range of dresses to choose from at the PTR studio or we could work together to create a one-of-a-kind dress just for you.
Makeup & Hair Artist
As a qualified hairdresser and beauty therapist, I have been fortunate enough to forge my career in the film industry working on some incredible projects from feature films to TV & commercials for over 15 years.
When I had my little boy three years ago I decided to take a little step back from the crazy hours of `on set’ life and spend as much time with my little man as possible.
I’ve started to dip my toe back in to the industry waters with some smaller shoots as well as doing freelance work with Amy and her team.
It is always such a happy set to work on and I love the interaction with mommies and their little ones.
