CHILD MODELING – HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHILD MODEL – NEW YORK CITY MODEL
AGENCY FUTURE FACES NYC – NINA LUBARDA ADVICE TO PARENTS WHO WANT THEIR
CHILDREN TO BECOME TOP KIDS MODELS
1. Show up. You would be very surprised how many people don’t show up
for important agency’s meetings, requested castings and bookings. Great
agency will focus on your child’s long term modeling career. You should
be professional and responsive. Always call or inform your agency if
you will be late. Try to be always on time but if you know you will be
late call or text. It is always better to be honest. You don’t want to
risk a great relationship with your child’s agent. When your child is
booked for a job casting directors, photographers and producers made
their decision. They confirmed your child. It is mostly a huge
organization for photo shoots for kids campaigns as GAP. JOE FRESH,
H&M, CARTER’S, HUGGIES, GERBER, LITTLE AKIABARA, J. CREW…so come on
time. Bookings depend also on you if your child has been booked.
2. Be on time. You would be very surprised how many people show up
late for important castings and bookings. Be on time for your booking.
Prestigious brands work with professional agencies and expect
professionalism from parents. Plan additional time as you cannot predict
the traffic. Have some favorite items for your child. Sometimes there
could be a waiting time during the shoot and your child should do
something he/she likes but would not interrupt the shoot. Crayons and
paper are a great idea.
3. Have a pleasant and cooperative attitude. You would be shocked how
many promising careers never get off the ground because the parent(s)
and/or the model likes to argue and complain. Be kind and nice. Never
look as a stage parent asking too many questions or be too involved at
the shoot. Be there to help if needed but casting directors and
photographers work with your child. Your child should focus on their
directions not yours. They will make all efforts to make your child
happy for photos.
4. Always have up-to-date professional looking photographs and comp
cards to show. Wishful thinkers often don’t think up to date photographs
and comp cards are important but in the very competitive world of kids
modeling, how you present yourself is everything and if you don’t
present yourself professionally, real agents and clients simply WILL NOT
take you seriously. If your child is a baby or very young you can take
some sharp nice snapshots outdoor against the plain background. Do your
best. Have in mind that casting directors would like to see your child’s
face not disturbing background elements. Keep your child’s hair style
simple, no glasses, accessories. Styling should be similar to GAP style.
Plain colors and skinny jeans work best.
5. Real agencies “obtain, seek and procure” bookings for models.
Always carefully review agency’s website before you’ll make any decision
for your child. Do you see tear sheets? Do you see photos of any
prestigious brands on children agency’s website? Do you think majority
of children agency represents look as models? Does kids agency
represent hundreds of kids or only very carefully selected children?
Would you want your child to be one of hundreds of kids? Do you prefer
personal attention and special dedication for your child? If any agency request payment to submit your child it is most likely a scam. They take money from hundreds of hoping parents. Professional agencies do not charge for submissions.
