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
shared her knowledge of child modelling and accompanies this knowledge with working photographs from the agency.
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.
"My two daughters have been with Elisabeth Smith since the age of 2 years old. I would have no hesitation in recommending them as they provide such a personal and caring service and I love the fact that it is a family run business. They have given my girls some lovely opportunities over the years including modelling work for Mothercare, Boots and Richmond Sausages. Their knowledge and professionalism makes me feel like I am in completely safe hands."

"We have been with a few agencies in the past and find Elisabeth Smith the most easy to deal with! The efficiency and family feel to the agency make it a real pleasure to be on their books. Elisabeth Smith work with quality clients who make the shoots really fun. My two sons have worked with Kinder Egg, Great Little Trading Company, MCS and have even been in a promo film and on the front cover of a book!"
