In an era of phone photography, you may wonder whether a professional photo shoot is worth the time, money and effort. Whichever way you frame the question, our answer is the same: yes, it is! Here’s why – plus an easy-breezy way to say ‘cheese’ without breaking the bank (hint: it’s a handy RCS Personal Loan, of course, to make summer 2017 even more memorable!). You can get a cash loan from R2 000 up to R150 000, and get cash in your account within 24 hours – so what are you waiting for? Apply today!

 

TAKING A FAMILY SELFIE IS NEXT TO IMPOSSIBLE

Have you ever tried to get the whole family to pose for a selfie? It’s a bit like trying to put a Babygro on an octopus. Plus, once you’ve finally tethered the entire group together, the result is often less than perfect. If there’s not a thumb blurring the edge of a shot, there’s a family member looking awkward or a pet doing something weird. What happens? You get frustrated, forget the whole thing, and the memory of the day fades away.

A professional photographer is trained to gather groups together and snap each person (and pet) at their best – an unenviable task worth every penny!

 

 

YOU NEVER GET AROUND TO PRINTING OUT YOUR PHOTOS

Your camera roll may be filled with hundreds (okay, thousands) of snaps of your kids, your pets and your fun weekend activities, but how often do you actually print them out?

Professional photo packages usually include several hard copies that simply need to be clipped into a frame, or may even come framed already. It’s so easy: pose, receive your gorgeous professional pics, and put them on the wall. Family photos instantly turn your house into a home, making it feel warm, cosy and filled with love (even when you’re all driving each other nuts).

 

SEEING YOUR FAMILY DRESSED UP IS ALL KINDS OF SPECIAL

Everyone dollies themselves up for a professional photo shoot, and there’s something incredibly touching about seeing your family dressed in their finest. When last did hubby look this dapper? Probably way back on your wedding day! And it may be the one day of the year you’re able to convince your kids to get out of their Frozen/Paw Patrol/Spiderman gear. Worth it? Oh, yes!

 

 

IT’S THE ONLY WAY TO FREEZE TIME

Does it feel like each time you blink, your kids get a little bigger? You’re (not really) imagining it. A professional photo shoot captures your family, and your kids especially, as they are right now. Before you know it, they’ll be going on dates, driving your car and generally driving you up the wall. Even though you can’t freeze the here-and-now, you can treasure the memories forever.

 

SAY CHEESE! IT’S EASY AND AFFORDABLE WITH AN RCS PERSONAL LOAN

Moments are fleeting, but memories can last forever. Don’t let another great summer disappear into your camera roll. Capture it with a professional photo shoot, and with an RCS Personal Loan as your secret weapon, you can afford it. In fact, it’s also the perfect excuse to treat the family to new outfits. Here’s to making the best memories this summer!
