This how everything started.
I filled out a piece of paper at the rockaway mall in New Jersey for my 5yr old daughter and placed it on the clear box that they have at their display. They called me up the same day telling me to bring her so they could see what she was all about.
I took her we picked the easiest line for her to say including her name, then she went on the run away on the stage. Then they gave me a piece of paper with a small book explaining what kind of pictures I had to take for her if they call me. They told me they would call me in a week and a half if she wins a contract.
3 weeks passed and she won the contract with model productions. They called me up and told to go to White Plains Galleria in NY to look at the contract and sign it. I said ok. I was supposed to call one of the photographers from the list they gave me beacause i had to have her profile ready. I kept calling but no one ever answered their phone. The only one that picked up the phone was a guy from the list telling me he will call me back and never did. After that i received a call from a guy named "Brody" he said he was one of the casting directors from model productions and said he would take her pictures for $150 so i told him that i was really excited because i hadn't taking her pictures. So the day camed and we took her for her photo shooting at the mall in NY. We got there and they were like 1 hour to 1 and a half late. When they got there and take my daughters pictures they said they would mail me the so called "Contract". They gave me a CD with all her pictures. Great pictures, by the way, my daughter had a lot of fun taking the pictures. My husband and I believed them before asking any more questions.
AFter that i called Brody and asked him when would i receive my contract and he said the following Saturday after that. Saturday past, a whole week past and i still didn't receive the contract. I kept calling Brody and no anwer. His voicemail is full most of the time so i can't even leave him a voicemail. I contacted the main office on Los Angeles, California and they told me that they had no control of what was going on. That they had no idea why he wasn't picking up his phone and that they were going to try to reach and get him to call me back. I told them that it was very unprofesional of them and him not knowing what was going on on their part and Brody for not picking up or calling me back. All this was a couple of days ago. It has been 3 weeks since i was supposed to get the contract and I still don't have it and have not receive any calls from anyone. If i would have known better i wouldn't have had spend the $150 on the pictures. The only good thing about it is that I have beautiful pictures of my daughter and she had a lot of. But i'm very dissapointed that this happened to us and that people like that exists. If any one there is reading this believe me when i say they're a rip off and they are all a bunch of liers. JUst like they got me they will get you and everyone else that don't thing like me. So please before doing anything, before having to pay for profile pictures make sure you sign a contract first all ask a lot of questions. I'm too far from the main office and can't afford to go and yell at them.
If this happened to anyone please reply to this and let me know, Or if someone can help me with this please reply to this.
Thank you and pay really good attention to what other people have to say about companies like this that only want your money and does not care about people's feelings. Too bad that they didn't want my daughter because she is a very beautiful and smart 5 yr old.
