As the Summer holidays start to draw to an end, parents may well be taking a big sigh of relief, or perhaps not – how have you survived the Summer Holidays??
The Models Direct team would love to hear how you’ve survived the school holidays and if you’ve discovered any new exciting activities that your children have particularly enjoyed that don’t cost the earth!!
The Models Direct Assignments Team often receive modelling jobs asking for real families. But what’s it like modelling as a family?
“Yet again another fab day on an assignment for Models Direct. We have had a brilliant day on our photo shoot for a pensions brochure. Meqele, Ben and Simon all looked after us really well and made the day so much fun. We started our day in a home environment, baking and having fun in and around the house. We then moved on to the Battersea Park zoo, the kids thought it was amazing, especially feeding and petting the animals. We finished off with ice cream and playing ball in Battersea park. What a fun filled day, very tiring but lots of fun. A big thanks to Marie from Models Direct for putting us forward for the job. We look forward to more adventures soon.” – The Burton Family

The Models Direct team are delighted for the lovely Burton family who have just recently completed their 3rd assignment with Models Direct!
Family modelling is big at the minute and ‘real’ families are always best, so the assignments team were so pleased to be able to offer the Burton’s another assignment , this time it was a day at the beach – doesn’t get much better than that!
How lovely to be be paid to have fun with your family at the beach and get a surfing lesson thrown in too!
Here’s what the family had to say about their experience:
“We had an amazing time on the video shoot in Swansea with Film Up High, Rob was brilliant and made the experience so much fun.
The best part was having a family surf lesson in Caswell Bay, it was so much fun. We all managed to stand up on our boards too.
The weather was forecast for 12 degrees and showers which was what the production company were hoping for as we were supposed to advertise that you can have fun on the beach whatever the weather but the sun was shining and it was about 17 degrees, which was perfect for us. Rob had to make it rain with his water sprayer.
All in all we had a fantastic time and can’t wait to see what adventures the next assignment will bring.
Thank you Models Direct.” – The Burton Family

Models Direct Pleased For Model Family The Phillips Family In Daily Mail
Rebecca Friend recently wrote about her experiences of family modelling over on the Models Direct website.
“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. 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.”
Other Models Direct modelling families have gone to do all sorts of exciting modelling jobs.
The Phillips family featured in the The Daily Mail, Mirror and Express earning themselves £6,000 in model fees in the process.
The Burton’s hit our screens when they featured in the NSPCC’s ‘Mess-a-thon’ campaign.
