Our little model Radisson secured his first assignment landing the starring role in a commercial for a new nursing/sports bra – at 1 yrs old that’s a massive deal!
For a mum it can be very nerve wracking taking a toddler on to a set with crew, models and of course expensive equipment, non of which are toddler friendly. The team at Models Direct always do their very best to make sure mum’s (and dad’s) are fully briefed before taking their little ones to assignments, but it always helps to hear other mum’s experiences of working in this industry with a toddler in tow – check out Radisson’s mum’s feedback:
“It was amazing to be a model for the first time. Radisson was not nervous at all. He had so much fun with the team as they were very friendly and gave him enough breaks and time to have a little nap. The team were very patient with my baby. The shoot took place indoors and outdoors so Radi was safe when he was riding the bike.
We were asked which day and what time was good for us and then Models Direct contacted the client to let them know our availability. Every part was so enjoyable that my son didn’t feel like he was with strangers and modelling for the first time and on the lunch break food and drink was provided. The assignment was for a maternity bra advert where Radi was playing with his toys with his mum indoors, then out in the buggy to walk in the park and then riding on the bike with his mum. He was so excited as he was on bike seat with a helmet on. We gained confidence Radi will be more relaxed for future jobs now. It was a fantastic experience for us. We will be sharing our experience with others so they will know it’s really not very hard to find a job and it will be fun.
