Well the big news for this week is that as of this afternoon Kirsten has been signed up for a 2-year non-exclusive contract with The Young Agency which is a modelling/talent agency. We took Kirsten to an open call audition last Saturday morning. We had to call and schedule her in but on arrival discovered that there were about a dozen children in that time slot. We had been asked to just dress the child in a normal dress and keep them looking as they normally would. We had also been asked to bring a recent digital photo. I couldn’t decide so took about half a dozen. The Children’s Director then took a digital photo of each child and then told us all to call back on Monday between 1-2pm which we did. John and I had only taken Kirsten along on a whim not expecting anything out of it but felt that it was a way of proving that people only told us how beautiful Kirsten was because it is said about all children. I called back soon after 1pm on Monday and left my name and number and received a call back at around 3.30pm informing me that they would like to sign Kirsten up.
This afternoon Kirsten and I drove down and signed a 2-year non-exclusive contract, which means that should we wish to sign her up with other model/talent agencies we are free to do so (we have no plans to do anything of the sort). We will be taking Kirsten back again on 8 August for a photo shoot at 9.15am. The best shot from this shoot will be used as her head shot and also used in a corporate calendar that the agency puts together to use at Christmas for clients/prespective clients. We will get the opportunity to purchase extra copies.
Not it’s just a matter of seeing if there are any clients out there who also think that Kirsten would be perfect for their advertising/film etc. We will keep you posted. We will be more than happy if Kirsten just gets 1 to 2 jobs, but you never know. As we said we didn’t even expect to get this far.
