Child Modelling Tips

Models Direct Child Modelling

Child development is fascinating, and as a parent of a child model the more you know about it the better. You probably noticed your child’s unique personality coming out those first few months of life -reaching eagerly for a rattle or perhaps pushing away a teddy bear. After the age of three, your child's personality is really going to emerge.

From age three, children are becoming more comfortable expressing themselves with words, and they begin to interact more with others. They are too young to understand what child modelling is, but can enjoy it anyway. 

During a child’s early years they start to gain some self-control and awareness of consiquences. They begin to rely less on you and others and more on themselves. They're learning how to calm themselves when they get excited, frightened, or upset, and they're becoming more attentive and less emotionally reactive. 

By age 5, kids typically start showing more concern for mom and dad, at last starting to understand that you have your own needs and feelings. They also begin to show affection more easily, develop a fantasy life, and may see-saw between being demanding and being cooperative.

While your child's personality will blossom on its own naturally, there's actually a lot you can do to help as well as a few things to avoid. Children are all unique, even siblings, so don’t try to make them alike if you have a number of kids.

Interacting with others in a photo shoot helps kids develop physically, mentally, and emotionally. It teaches them to work in groups, have confidence, develop their craft, and try on different stances. When kids play, they practice decision-making, learn to stand up for themselves, create, explore, and lead.

Models Direct Reviews

Welcome to Models Direct

Models Direct is one of the longest established talent management companies in the UK. With over 10 years experience in the modelling industry, Models Direct has the expertise to get the right modelling jobs for you, whether male modelling, female modelling or child modelling.  Here are two reviews by our male and female modelling clients in their own words. Enjoy!


The two day shoot with Latham Trust was a great experience.  Myself and the other models posed as a family on holiday at a caravan park and, despite a cold first day, it was really fun.  I have done some similar work in the past and this was a good confidence booster to help me back into it and has certainly encouraged me to stay on top of my profile to gain more assignments like this.  Talent Management made it easy in terms of organising and sourcing the work, so I just turned up and got stuck in. The best part of the assignment was the shots of our 'family' on bikes - I could have done that all day!  The children and women there with me had not done any work of this kind beforehand and clearly enjoyed the experience too. I am very glad that I got involved!


Hi all,

Feedback for Facebook and Google Places (Feel Agency for Inspire Homes - £200):

My assignment on Monday afternoon was pleasing - it was a photo shoot in a lovely house with nice decoration inside and a great view.  I was working with other models, who were very friendly.  Myself and the other models had a friendly chat during the photo shoot, while we were waiting to be photographed. The assignment was organised by Feel Agency and I found them to be very kind and helpful.  The photographer was so funny and did his best to keep the environment warm and friendly. Overall, I had great time - I really enjoyed the assignment and made new friends. Thank you Models Direct.
