My name is Natasha. I found Future faces NY through another mother who's daughter has had a lot of success with Nina and her future faces agency. I checked them out myself and came across lots of great reviews. So was lucky to get an appointment with Nina. Nina LubarduWas very professional yet friendly. She was very sweet meeting my Anya and after checking her out and speaking with her colleagues. We were accepted. She explained everything clearly with no false promises. She thought my daughter had potential and would try and give her the opportunities, as long as we made an effort to. We would need to obviously agree to go on castings and be on time. And Nina would do her part shaping Anya as a new young models career. We decided to do new photos with Nina as she is an amazing photographer. I had seen and heard from other mothers what an amazing photographer she is. Well we were very lucky, we had driven far and she set up styling and photos asap so we did not have to travel back to do them. When I seen the photos two weeks later. I was so happy. She made the whole experience fun for Anya. If you check out Anyas photos on future faces website, you will see why after four days of Anyas photos being on website. We got called for a casting. Anya booked job at casting, and actually did the job there and then. This was wonderful as we were there in NY already. We also got called to do a video of Anya back at future faces that day too, as a top client was interested in Anya. Once again Nina fitted us into her schedule so we would not have to drive back a long way to do it another day. Our portfolio is beautiful, our compcards amazing. Anya already feels so excited to go and see Nina of future faces as she is a sweet yet hardworking lady.I think it is amazing how after only being with future faces three weeks and photos only in site a week and we had booked a job. I also notice the variety of children on the site are amazing. I love that we get the feeling we are a team and Nina wants us all to do well. We are proud to be a part of future faces NY. We applied to a couple of other agencies in NY they loved thought Anya was great but would not give us a chance because we did not live in the tri state. We live in a small town in NH and this type of opportunity to be with top agency does not exist. As long as Anya wants to do modelling. I want her to be safe and represented in the right way. Our short time with Nina feels right. We look forward to a long successful career with Nina and future faces model management. Another last important part that made it perfect for us. Nina helped us get all the correct paperwork. This was very important to check Anya doing well at school and doctors note to insure she is healthy and last of all a secure bank account and child work permit. All this ensures everything is done with child's interest put first. Future faces wants us to succeed . If we do well they look good too. I am excited and know Anya will book some great campaigns and bookings. I am glad another agency could see the potential we did. Modelling is fun for Anya for now, as long as she stays sweet and does well in other areas we are happy with our choice to be a part of such a prestigious agency.

I learned about the agency from a friend who's daughter has had a number of great gigs thanks to Take 3. My son was auditioning on a small level for projects though his drama program. He got a few good gigs and almost landed Ryan Gossling film project. I thought may be my son may have something. Went to Take 3, he was signed and they sent him out on many great audition even with out professional head shot. When we went out on auditions we saw all of these great head shots and realized when you represent an agency you must be professional and get the proper photos and that is what we did, we were never pushed! I was pleased and felt well taken care of. They didn't push any photog on me or acting lessons, but Natasha said if you feel frustrated and aren't getting the rolls or call backs may be you need to go and look for acting programs that will help. I found that to be completely reasonable, heck that goes without saying! If acting is what you really want to do then you must work on your craft. We also did model management site and the day after I payed the fee for my son to be apart of the site he landed a gig with Filip phone. The fact is landing a gig falls ultimately on the client. Take 3 can't give you a job, the casting directors do and I understand that. My son hasn't booked anything big, but has gotten call backs which to me says a lot. The work they do isn't easy. They submitt tons of kids I am sure. I remember paying for sites to submit my son for various projects if the casting director doesn't select your photo you don't get audition, it is that simple. It has nothing to do with agency. Don't shoot the messenger. Do your homework go with your gut. Our contract will be up for renewal in the spring. It has been slow for us and if things continue in that route I will not sign I will just let it go unless my son wants it badly. I can honestly say Take 3 gave my son a fair shot! We competed with the best of them for national commercials and many other amazing projects. He got to experience being on set and filming all day and going on a photo shoot. It was fun, fair, and honest!
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!!!!
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!
My daughter Gwyenth recently signed with Future Faces NYC under the direct management of Nina Lubarda. Nina has gone above and beyond to represent Gwyn and in less than a month from our signing date, she already booked us a campaign cover. For a new model, especially one who is novice and only four-years-old, that is more than we ever expected. In addition to this impressive campaign, Nina continues to exceed our expectations starting with the attention she gives us directly. I feel like she really gets to know her models, which gives her the ability to place them where they will succeed. From our experience so far, it seems like she already understands Gwyn's strengths and weakness and is using that knowledge to not only achieve success but to also help experience growth. We've already had an impressive amount of go-sees and requests and if we lived in NYC, I'm sure we would be "happily" overwhelmed with work. We do, however, live out of town near St. Louis, Missouri. It would be easy for an agency to rarely work with someone who lives so far away. Future Faces NYC has been so supportive and they keep in mind how difficult the travel side can be for us. I believe that my daughter has a special quality and talent for this business and it is refreshing to work with someone who clearly shares the same vision for her. I want to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU to NINA and her FUTURE FACES team for all that you do and have done for both me and my daughter!
I am a mother of a sweet 4 year old girl. We have been signed with Future Faces NYC since January 2013. Under a watchful eye of Nina Lubarda Stropnik my daughter Zoey became a very well know child model in NYC. She is constantly requested by all major brands and books almost all the campaigns she is sent to :) She was a GAP Kids girl for Fall/Winter 2013 and her pictures were in every GAP Kids store all over the world! She shot 4 campaigns with OshKosh and became one of their favorite models. Zoey's other campaigns include Kohl's, Ruum, Joe Fresh, Little Akiabara, Bean Pole, Baby Kuu, Lilly Pulitzer, Yoki Kids, Laura Ashley, Century 21. Just last month Zoey booked her first TV commercial for Joe Fresh!The amount and the quality of campaigns we get from Future Faces NYC is just amazing. We have been so busy over the past year! Zoey is having fun at the shoots and she's saving up for college at the same time. We are always paid in time and we get a detailed statement outlining all campaigns, income, commission etc.Nina Lubarda Stropnik is a force in the fashion industry. This woman will go to hell and back for her kids :) I could have never dreamed of a better agent. Honestly, she works so hard and literally 24/7- I have no idea how she does it! I would absolutely, without a doubt recommend Future Faces NYC!
Alyssa was signed with Future Faces NYC a few months ago. Since then my daughter was chosen to be in a weekend long Fashion show for Fashion weekend (Fashion Week) in NYC and she was recently chosen to be a part of a TV commercial. I had the wonderful opportunity to get to know Nina Lubarda and all I can say is WOW. She is truly an amazing woman. The love that she shows for her children simply shines through in every thing that she does. Truly, an expert in her field and her dedication and her commitment to excellence is second to none. She works tirelessly around the clock to make dreams come true. 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. If you are signed with Nina, 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 creating these breathtaking images.To this end, Alyssa and I look forward to a bright future with Nina Lubarda and Future Faces. I feel very fortunate to be a part of Nina's team at Future Faces, NYC and I am confident that together, we will soar to places beyond our imagination.
Folks on here with the negative reviews are either feeling slighted in some way because their children didn't get enough casting opportunities or felt some sort of entitlement when their children were given an opportunity by these two agencies but did not see much activity. Well so you know, this is because they weren't chosen by the production companies or didn't fall into a certain demo. Not all ages are as popular and not all looks are as demanding. Take it from a parent of kids working with Take 3 - These negative reviews are without merit and should not be taken seriously. We have been with Take 3 for some time and have never been asked for a dime. If your child makes money, they make money - PERIOD. They work at all hours of the day and we've received last minute go-see calls in the middle of the night. They're always on their A game. Slandering a company's name will not make the situation any better. Bottom line is that if you're not happy somewhere, take your chances elsewhere. Burning bridges will not make things right and these agencies all know each other so in the long run you will only be harming your child's chances. Take 3 and its representatives are 5 stars all the way! Keep doing a phenomenal job!
