My daughter Lailla was chosen to be a clothes fitting model for a upcoming kidswear brand, Coco Blu. Lailla had a fantastic time trying on some lovely clothes and she felt very comfortable trying on each outfit while the client took measurements. It was a very laid back experience and most enjoyable. I would recommend joining Talent Management to anyone who is looking to pursue a career in fashion.Apply: Child modelling
Amelia's assignment with Kit for Kids was fun - she was very confident and enjoyed having her photo taken. Overall, it was a good experience and I would recommend it to others.
We felt really comfortable from the minute walked into the Kit for Kids warehouse yesterday. The team were warm, kind and smiley and they put all the parents at ease. Aamil start playing straight away, he didn't felt shy or anything. It was such a fun day!
I have already advised all of my friends with children to apply for a contract Talent Management because I think it's really important to give your kids a head start in life - even if it's not the path they wish to take in the future, they will have some great memories! I signed my son up with Talent Management because I wanted him to try different activities (modelling, football, swimming etc) as this will keep his career options open when he grows up and also keep him off the streets. I would like Aamil to feel inspired and ambitious so he can challenge himself and have a bright future ahead.
It was such a pleasure to be there yesterday - thank you!
I was so pleased when Talent Management called to say that my little boy Regan had been picked for a photo shoot. We would both love to do it again!
When I explained to Jahziyah that he was going to take part in a photo shoot, he was very happy and excited. When we arrived at the location, he began to get a bit nervous. However, as the shoot went on he relaxed and enjoyed himself. My son was asked to play with the toys provided, which were the products that Kit for Kids will be selling in their new catalog. Jahziyah was very natural and did his own thing, playing nicely with the other children and also the staff members.
I am unsure whether Jahziyah learnt gained new skills from this experience, however I feel as a parent that I have learnt to allow him to be natural on a photo shoot and not to be a pushy parent. I just relaxed and observed the situation and really enjoyed the experience.
I would definitely recommend joining Talent Management to others so they can also be given opportunities to meet new people, enjoy new experiences and learn new skills. I am happy that my two children are signed to this agency and that bookings have started to pick up for them after a year of being on the books. I signed my boys up on a whim, just to see how they would get on (as well as them being beautiful, photogenic and social!). New experiences such as this will be a huge benefit to them in the future and of course earning money is a bonus!
Overall, today was lovely, friendly and professional which was everything I was hoping for.
Thanks to everyone involved!
Lily seemed to really enjoy herself on her photo shoot with Kit for Kids. She relaxed quickly and easily due to the photographer and assistants being nice natured and child friendly. As parents we were very proud and pleased with the way everything was dealt with, both with Kit for Kids and Talent Management. We are already looking forward to the next photo shoot!Apply: Child modelling
This was Oliver's first assignment and he thoroughly enjoyed himself. He was being photographed for an educational brochure for Kit for Kids, and he spent the morning playing with toys! The staff were fantastic and we were treated very well. I would definitely recommend joining Talent Management as we had a fabulous time today. We look forward to our next assignment. Many thanks, Sally.
This was Uche's first assignment. He seemed to have lots of 'butterflies' in his stomach when he was asked to join the other kids to play with different toys, so the photographer could take shots. He would join in briefly and then run back to me, but then the photographer developed a strategy to get him relaxed by asking him to press the flash button on the camera - which Uche really enjoyed! After lots of promptings and praises, Uche gradually began to relax and join in the play with the other kids. By the end of the assignment, it was difficult to get Uche to leave as he was having so much fun playing. For me, I enjoyed the experience of watching the children relate so easily and communicate by their actions.
All in all, we had a great time and I am glad we went for this assignment. I really hope Uche gets more work soon! Talent Management's communication was great throughout the process and I would certainly recommend them to anyone who is looking to go into modelling.

Lexie had a fantastic day! She enjoyed playing with the educational toys and I think the experience has helped her gain confidence. Lexie is normally a little shy but she didn't show any of this at the shoot. She was required to sit and play with toys (which she loved every minute of!) and also got to play with the other children. I would definitely recommend Kit for Kids to anyone who either wants their child to model for them or purchase off them - they have a great range of toys and the staff were lovely. I will be keeping Lexie on Talent Management's books because I believe she will benefit from modelling, especially relating to her confidence. Thank you Talent Management for this wonderful opportunity!
This was Archie's first modelling assignment, and he really enjoyed it. He enjoyed playing with the Kit for Kids toys and equipment, and really had a lot of fun, and would definitely like to do it again!
The guys at Kit for Kids were really friendly and welcoming. Sharon was really nice, and made a point of talking to Archie. The photographer was also great. Archie was required to play and use the equipment and engage with it, which he really excelled at. The guys at Kit for Kids were really pleased with Archie's pictures and how easy he was to direct/photograph.
We were really pleased with the interaction with Molly at Talent Management, she gave lots of information and fully explained how to obtain the performance license etc. I would definitely recommend signing up with Talent Management as they will put you forward for exciting jobs, as well as provide you with all relevant information and advice if needed. The only thing that we need to improve upon is updating Archie's e-portfolio, so that he can appeal to more campaigns.
We had a great day at Fred's first assignment with Kit For Kids. Fred was quite happy to play with the toys and have his photo taken. We were made to feel at ease and the photographer was very good at getting the models to do what he needed for each shot. Fred didn't seem nervous at all and soon got into the swing of things.
I would definitely recommend joining up with Talent Management if you are interested in your child getting into the modelling industry. We have only been registered with Talent Management for a month and already completed our first assignment. We look forward to our next shoot.
Summer was excited when I explained to her that she was going to be taking part in a photo shoot - as well as playing with toys and meeting other children. On her assignment with Kit for Kids, my daughter was required to have her photograph taken while playing with educational equipment and two other children. I learnt from the experience that 2 year olds are perhaps a little too young to follow instructions on modelling assignments, however the photographer and Sharon were very understanding of this and at all times put the children's needs first. I chose to sign Summer up to Talent Management to gain experience on photo shoots, and would be happy for her to take part in more in the future if she wishes to do so.
Maddie seemed to really enjoy herself and worked really well with the other models. She was asked to play with various pieces of children's educational equipment. Throughout the shoot Maddie grew with confidence and soon played up to her role in front of the camera.
I would recommend others to register their children with Talent Management as opportunities like this can really help with their confidence in the future. This was Maddie's first job and without the Talent Management this would not of happened. Both Maddie and myself are extremely excited for her next one!
My son Theo absolutely loved his modelling assignment through Talent Management. The assignment was relaxed and focused on Theo having an enjoyable experience in order to produce the natural looking photographs for Kit for Kids. Theo was asked to be himself (playful!) and props were provided, such as building blocks and education equipment. All Theo has to do was play and smile! Prior to the shoot, Theo was really excited and when he arrived he was greeted by friendly people who understood how to interact with toddlers and instantly Theo felt at home and comfortable.
Talent Management were very helpful and ensured all the required information was sent well in advance and answered any questions I had. Talent Management lived up to it's reputation as being a great agency that finds jobs suited to their models' needs and that is why I signed Theo up in the first place. His first assignment has been a real success and boosted his confidence in being in the spotlight and looks forward to more modelling adventures!
I would certainly recommend Talent Management for any one looking to go into the industry. They match jobs to the right talent perfectly and have a very professional and friendly service. Theo was dealing with Molly who has been very helpful in answering any questions.
Lorestelle had so much fun on her first ever shoot! Although it was her first time and she may not have been as used to it as the other child models, I think she did brilliantly. Lorestelle took part in a educational photo shoot, and she really enjoyed all the tasks that she was assigned, even if she completed them before the photographer could get a picture! Lorestelle came out of the shoot with a beaming smile and I could tell she has a real taste for it now. I am so pleased that we were given this opportunity by Talent Management, and I hope there will be more modelling work for Lorestelle in the future.
Tobin had a great time with the guys from Kit for Kids. He played with their toys, and also enjoyed trying out their range of seating whilst reading books. We were made to feel very comfortable and the photographer was great with Tobin, encouraging him to smile, laugh, and play.
Tobin's nursery already uses Kit for Kids equipment, so it is great to think that they may see his pictures in future catalogs!
Thank you Kit for Kids for making Tobin's studio experience an enjoyable one, and thank you to Molly at Talent Management for her friendly and professional communication from start to finish.
Ava and I felt very comfortable at today's photo shoot with Kit for Kids. It was a chilled out day with no stress at all. I would definitely recommend Talent Management to others.
Logan started off feeling 'unnaturally' shy until he noticed all the toys he could play with while modeling. In fact, he became so confident that he started ordering the girls around - who were participating in the photoshoot with him! He had so much fun playing with new toys and sitting on colourful carpets with his new friends while photos were being taken of them. His favourite activity had to be jumping on different coloured mats and then pretending to sleep on them - his favourite colour mat was green :) We definitely hope to do this again - it was so much fun for Logan and he even got to earn some pocket money!
I think joining an agency is a very good idea because I don't believe we would have found this wonderful opportunity without the help of Talent Management. All in all, a wonderful morning was had by all of us.
Nicole loved her assignment with Kit for Kids! It was quite a long drive but we found the venue without any problems. Nicole had fun playing with the products and with the other children. She was asked to play with the kit to display the use of the products. She followed all instructions very well and was happy throughout her time there.
As a parent, I really enjoyed the day and would like Nicole to take part in another assignment very soon. I ensure Nicole's e-portfolio is up to date at all times, so as to increase her chances of getting work. I signed Nicole up with Talent Management so she can get some experience in the industry and of course some professional pictures
PLAYING WITH BRICKS
Neah was very excited to be a model today for ‘Kit For Kids’. She was comfortable with her surroundings, had a lot of fun and wanted to go back to do it all over again!
She was asked to simply play with the toys and interact with the other child models from Talent Management on this modelling assignment. The setting was very much like her preschool so playing with bricks, reading and interacting with the other children was very natural to her.
I do think this experience has given Neah more confidence in front of the camera and I would certainly recommend the experience to other parents. It was a very relaxed setting and the company did not expect too much from such young children, they just wanted her to be herself so there was no pressure on her.
The staff were great with the children, very friendly and welcoming. I would recommend Talent Management but would advise others to be pro-active with updating their portfolio to help obtain work. Talent Management have been fantastic providing all the information required and Molly is always on the end of the phone to help with anything. I want Neah to have fun modelling and get put forward for lots of opportunities so I chose to register her with Talent Management due to the good reviews.
LOVED BEING PART OF A 'PRETEND FAMILY'
During the summer holidays Kyle did a photo shoot for Medmerry Park in West Sussex. He played the part of the son/grandson of a family on holiday. Kyle loved being part of the "pretend family" and was especially pleased that he had a sister for the day!
They had to do six different scenes on the shoot - having lunch, eating a picnic, playing on the beach, watching TV, swimming in the swimming pool and having a BBQ. Kyle gained a lot of confidence and had fun at the same time.
We were all made to feel very welcome by the park's owners and Kyle was treated like a little star. Kyle thoroughly enjoyed his time in front of the cameras and he has decided that he wants to be a model or actor when he grows up! The other models from Talent Management were all lovely and friendly and Kyle got on very well with them.Apply: Child modelling
A LOVELY PLACE
Today was all filmed and there was no audio needed, we were under the impression that it was for photographic work so it was a nice surprise for Jessica that she could play a part. She said she was a little nervous beforehand, but she soon got into the swing of things and was relaxed in no time.
She loved every minute playing the youngest child in a family having a great time in the Holiday Village, around the house, eating in the restaurant, enjoying a picnic, time on the terrace, on the beach and in the swimming pool. Great fun! Also as a result of today’s assignment at Medmerry Park I would really like to hire one of the chalets for a week, it was a really lovely quiet place to be.
It’s so much fun, playing the part or whatever is needed of you, for kids it teaches them social skills that they wouldn’t otherwise learn until they were out working in the real world. Jessica has had two other jobs with ‘Babies R Us’ and ‘Clarks’ and is now earning money for her account that can be put towards her first car or house in the future. The bottom line is if she didn’t enjoy doing it then I wouldn’t accept the job on her behalf.
I didn’t know we could view jobs and put our name forward for them so I will be doing that in the future – we are also allowed to have some footage of today’s work so I will be adding that to Jessica’s e-portfolio.
What made me join Talent Management? That’s easy – every mother thinks they have a really lovely child and I am no different! I also did modelling for ‘Lady Bird’ when I was younger and made a pretty penny doing so. I just think it’s such an experience and wonderful learning curve for them – they get to build their confidence, travel and see the world and earn money for their account doing so. One of my colleagues has joined both her two children to Talent Management off the back of my recommendation.
A TRUE STAR
Daniela really had a fantastic time and enjoyed being in front of the camera - a true star… She enjoyed getting changed in to different dresses and the face painting; she can't wait to do it again!
She was very willing to participate with the other children and was very good at acting like she was having good time as instructed. She participated well in the photo shoot and was very pleasant to the artists and chaperons involved in preparing her.
I think it is every parents dream to see their children being successful and involved in acting or modelling etc. and the best way forward is to join Talent Management. We did just that when we enrolled Daniela, not to earn a fortune but mainly for her experience and to help her get on the ladder.
GAIN AS MUCH EXPERIENCE AS POSSIBLE
This was a great experience and I gained more confidence with each photo shoot, I really enjoyed having my face painted and dressing up. I would recommend this to anyone starting out because you get to meet some great people and it was a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. I would advise anyone thinking of starting out to join Talent Management and gain as many experiences as possible.
ENJOYED DRESSING UP
Modelling for Snazaroo was a very exciting experience, I felt a bit scared at first but everything went well. The staff there made me feel welcome and they were very nice. I enjoyed dressing up and having face painting done, but the best bit was posing for the camera. I have gained lots of confidence from this job and also learnt how to relax and have some fun at the same time. If you like modelling then you should go ahead and try it. It is good to have an agent. I have been a member for three years but not had any assignments until now – my mum said she never updated my profile though, so that is probably why. My mum signed me and my little sister up as she said we were good posers – so thank you to her and thank you Talent Management for the experience.
