– STUDIO –
The professional Photography to Remember Studio is located in the Fish Hoek valley, just 30-miminutes from the heart of Cape Town. The PTR Studio is fully equipped with photography equipment, lighting, backdrops, baskets, and props. We also take care to ensure that the temperature in the studio is always maintained at a comfortably warm temperature for all precious little newborns in the studio.
The studio is an extension of Amy’s heart and home.

whilst we capture your precious memories.
We have a wonderful treasure trove of props, outfits, headbands, wraps, backdrops, and blooms for you to choose from. We also have a stunning selection of maternity gowns for our beautiful expectant moms. Once your session has been booked, Amy will meet with you in person for a complimentary pre-session consultation.
– FAQ’s –
WHAT IS IN A PRE-SESSION CONSULTATION?
A pre-consultation is a time for us to meet to talk through all the details of your shoot from what to expect on the day to how you can prepare ahead of the shoot, the design & styling for both yourself and your baby, the set design as well as to run through any questions or special requests you may have.
Newborn safety is of the highest importance and something that I am particularly passionate in educating other photographers about. I will always make sure that your little one is as safe as possible at all times from poses to transitioning between various props and back and back into the loving arms of Mom or Dad. I will also work with my incredible Assistant on all Newborn, Cake Smash, Milestone, Sitter and Sibling shoots to ensure the safety your little ones.
STUDIO FACILITIES FOR LITTLE ONES AND GROWN UPS
We have also prepared a seating area, mostly with the very patient Dads in mind, or for a small group of your family to sit and relax in whilst the photo-shoot is in session. This area is in full view of the photo-shoot and will be serviced with drinks and light snacks. A changing station and feeding room is available for the comfort of you and your baby. There is also a designated soft play area for little ones to play freely in the room adjacent to the studio which will also be used for Mom to have her professional hair and makeup done for the shoot.
CAN I DESIGN MY OWN DRESS / GOWNS?
These maternity gowns have been lovingly made for you by our incredibly talented seamstress Sam. If you have any special requests or designs in mind for your maternity gown, Sam would be happy to collaborate with you on the design and make a unique custom-made creation for you. Please do note that this would be at an additional cost which will be confirmed at your consultation with Sam and Amy.
WILL THE STUDIO LIGHTING HURT MY BABIES EYES?
I am asked this question a lot and as a parent I completely understand your concern but I can confidently assure you that your baby will be in no way harmed through the use of studio lighting. The flash is diffused through a large softbox which is made up of layers of diffusion material in front of the bulb. In addition to this the flash exposure duration is extremely short with the light source angled away from your baby’s face.
BACKDROPS AND PROPS FOR the SHOOT, do you need anything from me?
Not at all, we have a wonderful selection of props, gorgeous soft wraps, headbands and embellishments for you to choose from. You will be able to discuss your ideas for your shoot with me at our pre-session consultation to make sure we have everything you need ahead of time. You are of course welcome to incorporate any particular props or special items into your shoot.
We have a baby changing station and private feeding area for you and your little one with a some baby change essentials but would ask that you pack a few extra nappies in as well as formula, dummies or bottles for your baby.
