Family modelling reviews

Family modelling is in big demand. You usually tend to think of modelling involving individual models but there are times where a group - in particular a family - are called to come together to make a project come to life. Clients need families to market their products and services and to appeal to the consumer and Models Direct have an abundance of clients we work with. Our aim is to build a trusted connection between our amazing models and professional clients.  

Industries such as babies, education, health, beauty, travel, insurance usually call for families to showcase their services and products. Next time you’re watching the small screen, silver screen, browsing through your smartphone, device or flicking through a magazine or catalogue, check to see how many families you can spot that are featured as part of a campaign. You'd be surprised – a lot more than you think!

Modelling is quirky and unique but it's something that you and your family can have great fun, build some great connections and network, and earn some money. With our modelling agency, Models Direct, we make the process simple and easy. If you’re interested, which we're sure you will be, fill out our online modelling application and attach some natural-looking images of you and your family to be whizzed off through cyberspace. Once we receive them in our inbox, we'll be in touch with you! If any of our clients call for your family's look, you'll be notified and then scheduled an assignment. Our team of modelling enthusiasts will be in touch with you every step of the way, from the onset - the initial introductory phone call through till after the assignment has been completed. And that’s all there is to it! Easy and straightforward – that’s how Models Direct does it! We aim to make the process as uncomplicated as possible, taking the anxiety and worries out of the equation and filling the experience with positivity and ease. 

So, what’s it like modelling as a family? We have the lowdown from one of Models Direct’s modelling families about their time in front of the lights, cameras and action. 

Rebecca Friend gives us a glimpse of her experience with our family modelling agency:

By Rebecca Friend

"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 their 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, over £6,000 in modelling fees 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 sceptical 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 ease, she said she only needed photos that we had taken are self’s 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 its 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."
