With family modelling at an all time high, the demand for ‘real’ family models is in demand – so Models Direct were keen to hear from Rebecca who along with her husband and 3 children have just completed their 7th assignment with us!
“Working as a modelling family is a mixture of excitement and apprehension. As any mum knows if your going anywhere with your children you want them to be on there best behaviour.
This is no different on a photo shoot, so when your asking 3 of your children to stand up straight, smile, look happy continuously while taking direction from the photograph as well it can be challenging.
Luckily, we work with Models Direct and have always been so well looked after, from lunches being put on for the children, to overnight accommodation, to letting the children have 15 minutes time out so they can chill, go on there iPad etc.
We have now had 7 assignments and I can’t believe how lucky we are my son says its all down to his fantastic good looks.
When I first signed up to Models Direct I was a little skeptical hearing stories of people paying thousands of pounds for pictures to be done because the agency they had chosen had asked them to do so then signing a 3-year deal and not getting a single job. When I spoke to Molly for the first time from the Models Direct agency she immediately put my mind at easy, she said she only needed photos that we had taken ourselves, nice natural photos work the best, so the client can get a real feel for who you are and how you look in front of a camera. I told my children if we were lucky enough to get 1 job we would be extremely lucky.
Here we are several years later and now on our 8th job. We have managed to do so much with are extra money that has come in from our job, just little things like being able to spoil the kids a little, to a weekend away for the family to now having our garden landscaped and having a hot tub fitted.
My husband and I are so proud of our children and though it’s hard days working, keeping up with the photograph and the clients needs . We now would never look back and look forward to the next 7 assignments.” – Rebecca Friend
“We really do rate Models Direct, for us it was the best decision we made putting Myleigh forward and now as a family we are doing things together, having fun and getting paid!!” – The Pearce Family
The Assignments Department at Models Direct often get family modelling enquiries from clients looking to book a model family for their latest advertisement, campaign or commercial…..
More often than not it’s the job of the booking coordinator here at Models Direct to search our database and try and find adults and children that look similar or could act as a family and present them to the client for their approval. Obviously this job could be a lot easier if they were actual REAL families!!
Pregnant models are in demand for all types of maternity modelling assignments and at all stages of pregnancy. This area of the industry is growing as the demand for maternity products his huge and are becoming more fashionable and available!
Both pre natal modelling and post natal modelling are required for a host of mums to be and baby products, this can lead to mother and baby modelling assignments once baby is born.
What could be better than spending the day having fun, getting messy outdoors with your family and being paid for it??
That’s exactly what our model family ‘The Burtons’ were selected for! The Models Direct Assignments team were contacted by a production company who were filming a promotional video for the NSPCC’s latest campaign, the #Messathon looking for a model family to star in the video.
The Burton family were successfully selected and had to spend the day outdoors, getting messy and having fun while being filmed – what a lovely day! AND they were paid for it!
