People keep telling me I should try G at child modelling (she is gorgeous, but obviously I would think that, lol). It's not something I would normally think about, but as i'm considering being a SAHM I would be free to take her to things and could earn her some money for the future that we're going to struggle to put away for her if i'm not working. So has anyone done it? I guess it's all very London based and we're in Bristol, another reason I had previously dismissed it.
Anyone had any experience good or bad? Any good agencies/ones to avoid?

Try Urban Angels they have a north and south division. They only intake at certain times of the year My friends little girl has done campaigns for Argos, sainsburys and Burberry most recently. Extremely professional. I too was put off as we live in Edinburgh but my friend is based in Rural Kent and gets lots of work

C's been signed up to Urban Angels for the last 3 years, but hasn't actually earned any money from it so don't expect too much. In all that time, he's been to a couple of castings, which you don't get paid anything for, but played up when it came to having his photo taken, and because of the distance required to travel I've not bothered taking him to any of the other castings he's recently been asked to go to - they're all in Manchester (we're signed up to the North division), which is over 100 mile drive.
If you're prepared to travel then go for it, but as I say don't expect too much - I just like the idea of having something that he might get him to show him in the future, but since he starts school in September I'm not going to renew his contract this year. They are a good agency, we've just been unlucky as there are so many children to choose from and they tend to choose those who are the right sizes etc rather than going just on looks.

Thanks both, I applied to Cheeky Monkeys Modelling agency last night as someone else recommended them and they don't charge you anything to sign up. Will see what comes of it. xx

A friend of mine's little girl did alot of stuff for Mama's and Papa's. Rule number one is DO NOT sign up to any agency that charges anything. We are not london based and she got lots of work. They have put it all away for her.

My niece and nephew have both done it. As another poster just said, do not pay an agency any money. If your little one has what it takes, they need to have the right aptitude as well as being gorgeous, then they will pay you. I have been approached in a supermarket before asking if I would take my LO to a casting but travel, hanging round, being photographed incessantly when they are tired/bored and hungry is not something I want for my her and the reason my sis in law gave up with them. It's horribly dull she tells me.

Ah good luck blackkat! Yeah I thought it would be worth a try, but if she doesn't enjoy it or I feel it's not good for her I wouldnt persue it. X x
