Default How do these model agencies work for boutiques?

Do you send your stuff for free? How do you go about booking and such? It seems like I can't get anyone to answer questions from them.

You basically look through their models and pick one. You email the owner to see if the model is available. When they confirm, they give you the address. You ship your items and they are supposed to return photos within a certain amount of time (each agency is different). You get free photos, they get free bows. They do allow you the option of asking for your items back, and you pay them in return.
OT, the problem with this is that everyone wants free bows, so suddenly every girl is a model and every mom is a "professional" photographer. It's really insane. Some of the pictures I've gotten back were seriously cell phone pictures. Be careful who you choose. Most agencies have a "modeled" album where you can see their work... I usually go by that, not the comp card

Definately agree w/pp.. I look at the comp cards first to pick out certain kids that catch my eye then I search to find there modeled can obviously see the ones who have professional quality photos and you can finalize your choices that way..

My daughter is with model me, sweet pea and jolie fleur. If your looking for a baby. You can check out the pics I've taken. But yeah Like the other poster said perfectly just look at what they have done. Also make sure to go to there modeling page if they have one. The problem is if the mom can't take pictures or have a good friend that does it's too expensive for the parent to keep taking them to a photographer. Just contact the model referal place on facebook and their info is usually available.
