Melody’s parents signed her up to Bettina Management for a bit of fun, and to see where it would take their little girl. Little did they know they were going to score a job themselves! With real families becoming more and more popular, the Zhou Family took full advantage of this.
Age: 2 years old
Why did you decide to join Melody up to an agency?
When Melody was very little, we found she’s quite into being in front of the cameras. Once we lifted the camera, she stared us with smiles and poses. She knew what’s happening and has interests in it. So I thought maybe we can sign up with a kids modelling agency to see if she has this sort of talent. If she gets job, it’s a great opportunity to build up her confidence and get some cheering experiences through it. So I found Bettina just for a try at the beginning, but Melody really got some jobs, which were really awesome experiences.
What was it like working all together?
Actually, it was very exciting for me before we had the first advertisement shooting as a family. The atmosphere was warm and sweet. It’s a very unique experience for us.
What was the best part about doing a shoot as a family?
To us, it’s more like playing together, no stress or hassle at all. Melody enjoyed the whole shoot period so much. She was curious of the big cameras and professional spots light and everything. We were so happy to see her and ourselves of course enjoyed the shooting.
How did you feel when you saw your photos come out?
It feels wonderful. It’s so great to have some cherished professional photos on advertisement as a family, especially when we are still seeing our photos being posted on the brands social media.
What do you find challenging about having Melody in this industry?
With her growth, if she’s getting more chances and jobs. I’m a little bit worried about the overwhelming adult working environments to her, as she knows more and learning so quickly from others. Over makeup, industry competition, I don’t want these step into her little world too early, but I think these all can be adjusted if we doing it properly.
What job would you love to see Melody get?
We don’t have particularly preferences, but we will definitely screen the opportunities to see if it’s suit to her age or not.
Do you have any advice for other families who are approached to work together?
Every kid has potential to be a little super-model, you never know. And if you get a job for advertisement shooting as a family, just relax and enjoy. Bring some more clothes and accessories to the venue so the photographers can select the appropriate one to match. And don’t forget to bring some snacks for the kids.
