Elisabeth Smith - Representing children for over 50 years

Our Story

Founded in 1960, Elisabeth Smith was the first child modelling agency in the UK. Whilst the main focus of the agency is on children, from babies to teenagers, families are also welcome to join.

An ex model herself, Elisabeth was born into a Scottish family before being educated in England; attending boarding schools in both Sidmouth and Ascot. Her four daughters have all enjoyed successful modelling careers thanks to their mother.

Elisabeth also saw success as an author, with her expertise and years of experience allowing her to publish the book ‘Your Child as a Model’. In the book, Elisabeth shares her knowledge of child modelling and accompanies this knowledge with working photographs from the agency. The book is available from Elisabeth Smith Ltd at £4.95.

Following the sad death of Elisabeth in 2009, the agency continues to be a family run business. Elisabeths’ daughter, Charlotte, now follows her mothers’ success and legacy by continuing to run the agency.
