Nina honestly taught my twin girls how to pose in a matter of minutes! Then, she worked her magic!!!! Their photos are so beautiful!!! As for the price, I've paid more for family photos in my small town of Delaware! There was absolutely no pressure or "requirement" to use Nina's services for representation. I had a choice of using any photographer. l asked for myself...I've never been a fan of hearsay...you can surely miss out big time. They answered my emails very quickly too...love that;)....but I loved her work and her portfolio is amazing! Representation from the agency was totally free as it should be. I recognized the value in her photography work and appreciated that she knows what her clients look for. She wears a couple business hats...I admire that. If any parent is skeptical...ask questions from real moms of children within the agency. It's easy to find these parents bc their children are on the website and all over social media. Before meeting with Nina and her team, I did my own homework and my own research. My twin daughters have had the best time working with Nina in a short period of time and that makes me know we made the best choice for our children! No agency can guarantee work for a child..ever. I do believe our best chances for them getting quality work with top brands/companies are with Nina. We are very proud to be a part of her FFNYC family....thanks for making us feel welcome:)"
My son began modeling with FutureFaces about 9 months ago and it has been a wonderful experience. FutureFaces is used by all of the top brands in the fashion world. It's very exciting. A few things make them stand out, but the most important is the sense of family. I really didn't expect to have an actual relationship with my sons agent. She wishes him happy birthday, asks how he is and genuinely cares about him. FutureFaces also gets "direct bookings" on a regular basis. You'll soon find out that this is HUGE! Lots of times you don't even have to meet the client before your hold is hired. Nina (his agent) submits his photos and recommends him and the client hires him based solely on that!Best of luck to all the little models! I would recommend FutureFaces for the most success - and a gentle hand.
I would like to take this opportunity to share our experience with Future Faces NYC / Miami and to personally thank Nina Lubarda Stropnik for all her hard work, commitment and passion that she has continuously displayed. Her seemingly unlimited number of contacts throughout the industry has resulted in go sees and direct bookings. Nina is an incredible photographer as well and the quality of the photos have captured our daughter’s potential. As we all know, there are so many pretty faces in the modeling industry, but without the proper guidance, far too many may never reach their potential. We truly believe that Nina’s guidance can be the difference. No one knows what the future may hold, but Nina has made our daughter’s dream come true and we highly recommend Future Faces NYC / Miami and Nina Lubarda Stropnik to anyone else who wishes to give their child every chance to succeed in this highly competitive industry. Thank you Nina!
In June we traveled to NYC to meet with Nina Lubarda. As we entered her agency, right away we felt at home. The atmosphere was very welcoming! Nina spent time sharing information about her agency, making sure we understood everything and she answered any questions we had. At this meeting Nina offered to represent Charlie, all she needed were clear snapshots. My husband and I decided that we really wanted professional pictures taken of Charlie. We asked Nina if she could recommend anyone to take Charlie’s pictures. Nina graciously offered to take the photographs that same day since we had traveled so far. My husband and I were so grateful that she would change her schedule to take our son’s photographs. The photographs of our son are absolutely beautiful!!! Due to the amazing photographs Charlie immediately got requests. We were so impressed with all the amazing requests as soon as Charlie signed with Nina Lubarda Model Management. He has received requests for Gap, Old Navy, Oscar de la Renta, Benetton, Whole Foods, Esprit, and many others. He also got a request for a national commercial. Charlie received a call back for the national commercial, however due to family obligations he was unable to make it. Nina worked so hard trying to adjust the date of the call back to meet our needs. He has booked very prestigious campaigns based on the wonderful pictures Nina took for us, along with other print bookings. Charlie has had direct bookings for The Dragon and The Rabbit (twice) and The New York Times Magazine. Nina is very good with answering texts and email with any questions we have, even late at night! She is at all times professional! Nina is hardworking, a talented photographer, and works well with both parents and children. She is amazing at what she does! It is evident that she wants what is best for the children she represents! Her goal is for all children to be successful. I feel so honored to have my son be a part of the Nina Lubarda Model Management family! I highly recommend Nina Lubarda Management!!!!
Alyssa was signed with Future Faces NYC a few months ago. Since signing my daughter was in a weekend long fashion show during NYC Fashion week representing four new and upcoming designers and she was also recently chosen to be a part of a commercial. These jobs all stemmed from Nina's beautiful photography of my daughter.I chose to have Nina take professional pictures of Alyssa based on her amazing reputation as a photographer. The pictures she took of Alyssa are nothing short of perfection. DEFINITELY consider having your photos done by her. You won't be disappointed. Alyssa's pictures are absolutely beautiful and I totally appreciated the time and the energy Nina spent with Alyssa. She made Alyssa feel totally comfortable all the while teaching her how to create these breathtaking images. To this end, Alyssa and I look forward to a bright future with Nina Lubarda and Future Faces. I am confident that we will receive many calls based on these amazing photos. The pictures and the expertise are simply perfection. Thank you Nina!

Hi Kerstin How is the first course I would like to register my child also what I have to make Can you help me
This agency is professional and very successful. It is clear to me that the 2 reviews posted with negative comments are posted by people or agencies in competition with Nina Lubarda - Future Faces NYC. When you go on other sides you will see many successful postings and reviews that will clarify this. It is also very sad that people would go out of their way to do this. Future Faces NYC has many kids who model for companies like KIDS VOGUE, JCrew, H&M, CARTER'S, Elle Kids, Osh Kosh, Diesel, JOE Fresh and many many more! If this was a scam none of these brands would ever reach out to agency like Future Faces NYC to request children. Their reputation and contacts with top brands is what drives their business to the top. Recently GAP was also another company reaching out to see children from this agency. I am a mom of a baby boy who signed up just recently, Nina Lubarda took the photos which by the way were amazing. I also had terrible experience with a company called INTERFACE which took your money and did absolutely nothing. Before wasting your time trying to destroy reputable agency, please see the reviews on others! They took my money and pretended they worked on my son's behalf. They continue to do that even after being taken to court and paying 400k in fines. Future Faces NYC is professional and very selective. They hand pick their kids and its a privilege just to get a call back. It's a boutique modeling agency that works extremely hard for their kids. They know what is in demand and their top brands come back time after time for more. This is where you want your kids to be!
I attended the "junior program" causing me to pay more than the adults would but was placed in an adult class since no teens applied here which i was not previously aware of. The area they focused on was runway modeling but when evaluated at the interview that was not my best suit especially when your short 5'3 and curvy. Also when I wanted to cancel my reoccuring membership the creator of the program/photographer C.K. did not provide any help even when my parents called. They continued to bill me even for the two months I did not attend due to important personal problems even with him being informed that I would not attend and wanted to cancel. Although i eventually figured out how to cancel the membership. I would not recommend this place. They would not refund the money for the classes I informed them about not being able to and wanting to stop taking the program. My mother lost alot of money that she worked hard for and It was most definetly not worth it.
