“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them” – Walt Disney
NEW YEAR, NEW START….. or are new year resolutions not your thing?!
It’s that time of year when we reflect on our own highs and lows of 2018, what we did well, where we could improve and what we still would like to achieve, big questions, but do we need to make such big changes??
We are told laughter is the best medicine, but if you’re not feeling it how can you laugh for the camera?
Whenever you see a model laughing on the front page of a magazine, you should remember that they are acting. This side of modelling is often forgotten as people don’t look past the smile and wonder what kind of day they might be having, or what they did after the shoot. They may well have got up before sunrise and travelled miles to a photo shoot, perhaps unwell, not feeling themselves or be dealing with any other of life’s challenges!
Models Direct baby model Lola looks like she had a great time on the beach for her first assignment! Lola’s mum said this about her baby’s first modelling assignment…
“It was fun and Lola seemed to enjoy herself. She loved meeting new people.”
Fourteen-month old Lola was just one of six models who were selected to take part in a photographic assignment on the pier and beach in Brighton. Luckily the weather was nice and sunny, so the children were able to run around and enjoy the day.
Models Direct client Vintage Kit – a Children’s clothing company – originally came to us to find three models of all ethnicities aged one to four. Photographer Katherine told us she wanted to do the photo-shoot on a beach. It didn’t matter which beach we chose, as long as the models could get to it easily. So we chose Brighton and found three great young models for the shoot.
Soon after, Katherine came back to us requesting three more children – not a problem for Models Direct! So it wasn’t long before another six child models were enjoying a day on the beach modelling the Vintage Kit clothes.
It was the first modelling assignment for baby Lola, and she thoroughly enjoyed it. Both Lola and her mum Tracey loved the sociability of the assignment and met lots of great people.
“It was fun and Lola seemed to enjoy herself, modelling 7 outfits on the beach,” Tracey told us. “She loved meeting new people and it was something different. It’s hard work but fun.”
Even celebs will be seeing our young models on the Vintage Kit website. Amanda Holden is a big fan of the clothing. “…great and playful fabric,” Amanda told Vintage Kit. “Gorgeous very classic designs and most of all remembering we are dressing children not little adults!”
Tracey told Models Direct that her model coordinator Summer (the coordinator) “was very professional, giving us all the relevant information we needed. We had fun and are looking forward to other assignments.”
