I would like to share my experiences with FutureFaces NYC on this blog so individuals who may be new to the industry and/or leary about modeling agencies in general will get a real feel from a mother or a child who is one of Nina Lubarda's models.

Nina has honestly been the most positive individual I have encountered thus far in the modeling industry! She truly cares for each of her models and works extremely hard for them to ensure they have the most gorgeous images which she sends them out to numerous casting agents both in hard copy and electronic to ensure top exposure.

My daughter was offered a job on her first 'go see' due to the electronic exposure we received from Nina as well as her breathtaking images. We are on an exciting journey and are remaining positive with Nina by our side.

What I can say with 100% confidence is that Nina Lubarda puts forth more effort and heart into each one of her children than anyone I know. She takes her role extremely seriously and celebrates with her models as they take steps forward in their modeling and/or acting careers and gives them positive motivation along the way.

I would like to give a HUGE thank you to Nina for being so dedicated to my daughter, Catalina just as she is with all her models.

;)Thank you, Olivia Howard

Nina Lubarda with Future Faces NYC has an amazing group of kids she represents, and her website is very easily navigatable for clients. She is extremely professional and operates her business in a very professional manner as well. Nina's roster of child models is just as good if not better than any of the top agencies like Ford, and Wilhelmina. Your child if right for her, will get lots of attention and not be overlooked. I would strongly recommend Future Faces NYC as a great agency for your child. :D

"Nina Lubarda Model Management &…
"Nina Lubarda Model Management & Future Faces NYC " is what is fresh , new , and exciting at all the casting in NY. There is so much chit chat about who is the "In Agency" I can tell you this from experience- Nina Lubarda is "It" She is top Dog in her game. Her knowledge of this industry is right on target. Nina takes her time in choosing just the right models for her representation. All her talent is unique and not the typical boy/girl next door that most agencies profit on. She takes her staff a step further- she exspects perfection and gets it. In this biz- models are now cattled called out from one go see to the next- like a herd of cows. She assures her models that she will choose the right jobs for their look. Nina Lubarda is by trade is an amazing photographer , which is rare in this business. I can say many agencies can send you out to a suggested photographer- but they fall short of what is needed to be competitive in the market . Nina- knows her stuff- and can create the look she sees in each model before her lens. She is easy to work for- direct in her manner and a go getter. I know alot of new comers to the Biz- are leary of new agencies on the block. Nina Lubarda is not new to the Biz- she is involved for many years- the Buzz is just getting bigger and louder in the last few months. I signed my daughter with her- because I can see results before me in print and television ads. I have worked with many agencies for many years- I have full confidence I have finally hit the big time. I advise all that care to become a model with Nina Lubarda Model Management & Future Faces NYC to log onto the website and check out their previous work , models , and sign up to possibly become a model under Nina's roof of Amazing new models. This is the future of modeling agencies in NY. I am speaking from experience myself as a former actress and my daughter whom has done National Tv commercials. We are done with the little guys, Thanks Nina for trusting in us as well.(heart)

She has a very clear vision of how she would like Nina Lubarda agency to present their clients/children in order for them to be booked. Future Faces NYC Kids Modeling Agency has become one of the most important agencies in so short time because of professionalism, knowledge, passion and soul they have for their models.

It's not a secret that the first impression is the key to sucsess. And unfortunately for parents, many beautiful children because of a poor presentation with other agencies miss out on many opportunities. And Nina Lubarda - Future Faces NYC doesn't let this happen. Nina Lubarda has a true talent, she sees the uniqueness and a beauty of every child and she captures these moments in her photographs. Her work is beautiful, she has worked for many catalogues, campaigns and magazine covers. The portfolios of her Nina Lubarda Lids - Future Faces NYC children are AMAZING! This agency is very selective, dedicated and works hard for their children.
Please do your homework and compare models/portfolios of Future Faces NYC Kids Modeling Agency NYC with the snap shots of other agencies. And you'll see for yourself. Nina Lubarda Kids knows how to approach Big Companies in order to get bookings for her little clients/children by presenting them with the best quality portfolio you could ever get. That is why Nina Lubarda's Future Faces NYC Kids Modeling Agency grew so fast in such a short period of time.

Her clients/children are being booked, many times also directly. Children whose beautiful photos are posted to Nina Lubarda - Future Faces NYC facebook are exclusive with this agency. And the parents are very happy with the results. And I'm saying it, because I know them personally. They said that this is the agency they wanted for their children. Nina Lubarda Kids gives them the attention they deserve, give them all valuable advices and cares with heart and soul about their success. Many parents have decided for Nina Lubarda Kids because they did research. They realized it is very difficult if not impossible to get a booking with other agencies, because of a poor representation.

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!
