Why Baby Modelling is fun for Mum too

Lots of parents who contact the team at Models Direct wonder whether their baby is suitable for baby modelling.

Every new parent will tell you that their bundle of joy is the cutest little baby on the planet, and who knows, they could be right.

But what many parents don’t realise is that there is a huge demand for baby models. Joining a baby modelling agency like Models Direct can be a great way to show off your adorable little tyke to the world.

The market for baby care products is one that will always remain strong. Regardless of economic conditions, manufacturers of baby care products need to promote their product range in what is a very large and competitive market. Every parent of a young child knows just how many baby care products there are, from rusks and cereals, to nappies and wipes, to rash cream and skincare products, to baby clothes, the list is endless.

While starting your baby on a path towards a modelling career might be the last thing on the mind of young parents, a baby modelling photo shoot can be a lot of fun for parents and baby alike. It’s clear from the feedback from parents of baby models that it’s a lot of fun for everyone.

From a Baby Model Mother…”I started my baby modelling at two months, and during the teething months she was very noisy and we couldn’t take jobs on. The thing to know is that when your agency contacts you regarding an assignment you can actually accept or decline. I found that the most important thing was having a good portfolio for my child and keeping her pics up to date, that way she was more likely to be selected from pictures rather than having to attend lots of castings”.

It’s not so much that parents dream of their little baby becoming a model, just that it’s a great experience all round. The photographers and art directors who run the photo sessions are great at working with young babies and anxious parents, because they’ve done it many times before.

The Models Direct team do their very best to put parents at ease, there is plenty of time for naps and feeds, and they love meeting some of the other parents getting involved. The baby needs to be photogenic and it would be also good if they were quirky with plenty of character as they’ve got to have a sparkle about them. Temperament is also important; they’ve got to be good natured and sociable to put up with meeting lots of strangers.

Read what Jake had to say about his recent job modelling Persol Sunglasses.

This is the second modelling job that I have got through Talent Management. I model very regularly and have to say the whole process through this agency and the clients is always very professional.  Modelling for Persol Sunglasses was the first time I have been a ‘hand model’ – it was very interesting to experience a new type of work and has opened my eyes up to other potential opportunities, which I otherwise wouldn’t have had without the booking provided through Talent Management.

Models Direct: About Fashion Modelling

There are so many niches of modelling now that it’s sometimes hard to keep track. The team here at Models Direct often have new requests for such specific niches that even we had never heard of! Fashion modelling is doubtlessly the biggest segment of the modelling business. With thousands of new designs being pumped out of fashion houses every month, the need for models is always present. Fashion models are mostly recruited by modeling scouts around the world who are in a never-ending search for new faces and new blood to bring into the fashion business. If you want to be a high fashion model you must fit the very basic requirements of height and size though so don’t line yourself up for disappointment by not checking if you are suitable before investing your time, energy and resources.

Commercial fashion modelling on the other hand is far broader and better represents the norms of society. If you are applying to agencies with photos taken by your friends or family, you should make sure that they are simple and natural. Don’t over do your make up as the viewer won’t be able to see your actual features as clearly, and maybe the model they’re looking for is required for a shoot with little to no make up! Some models, particularly the young, plaster themselves with make up before having their portfolio done and are surprised to find out that a more natural look is generally preferred. Another thing you have to do is look out for a reliable agency. The team here at Models Direct have noticed that many people look at 3 or 4 agencies before making a decision. If you want to know more about us and find out how we have made it through 25 years in this business, watch the Models Direct video below this post.

Models Direct: New Years Resolutions

Models Direct connect models with business, every day. We are a real modelling agency with real offices and real people working tirelessly to provide our clients with the models they need for their projects. You can find out more about us in the Models Direct video at the bottom of this post but seeing as we are on the edge of 2015, we thought we would write about women and how we can improve our lives. One phrase that appears a lot in every aspect of life is ‘upwardly mobile’. An upwardly mobile woman embodies a multitude of traits.  Commercial models command huge respect and glamour and all have one thing in common – they build their look around the future of fashion. They look different, and dress different, because they aim ahead of the status quo. They see through the current trends and create the next ones with vision and foresight. These are incredibly powerful attributes to any woman. Men look for these kind of traits when looking for a partner. The desirable woman is an adventurer. She wants to explore, have days out, educate her self. Why do we insist on sitting under blankets on so many evenings or rainy days when we could be outside discovering something new, and creating a new memory. We don’t remember the individual days spent in the house, they blur into one long depressing picture. To pick yourself up jump on a coach to another city. Do the things you would do if it was in another country, see the cathedral, walk in the park, go for lunch. We don’t do these things in our own towns, so force yourself out of the loop and get moving!  For more tips and news from Models Direct, check out this other blog.

Don’t get over obsessed about the way you look. Half the things you think are terrible about yourself are invisible, and the other half are probably on the inside, making you hate the outside! If you feel in a rut getting out of the house will take your mind off it. It really is about creating positive memories with which to withstand the bad days. You don’t put sad photos in a photo album, you don’t want to reinforce and remember them. If you don’t do that, then why curl up under a blanket and feel sorry for yourself? In that action you accept defeat. The man in your life will not appreciate being brought down, but will definitely respect and admire you if you get up and get out. The most interesting people are often those with the most stories, and the most experiences. It’s not hard to be like that and will instantly make you more desirable and attract the right kind of friends. Building intellectual experiences and gaining knowledge is hot to men. The times of the silly giggly girl are definitely gone, thankfully, and we can bring the right kinds of people into our life by showing the world that we know something, that we know what we are talking about. Image models embody this mentality. To find out more about Models Direct, visit our website and check out what modelling jobs are available in real-time.
