We recently welcomed the Lambelin Family to Sandra Reynolds Agency.
Mum, Natasha, was signed with Sandra Reynolds as a young model, she says "I have such fond memories of working with Sandra Reynolds Agency. They were always so personal and friendly. You felt like you were part of a family rather than another faceless model or one of many".
Natasha has worked with some amazing brands and clients across the globe in Paris, London and Germany such as Balenciaga, Nicole Farhi, Mulberry and D&G; as well as some fantastic commercial brands including Matalan, Next, M&S and Boden. Now, she has returned to SR alongside her family.
"I decided after working on several shoots with my family that I’d love to do more and Sandra Reynolds agency was my first choice for representing us. I was so happy to be able to go back to where it all began for me and delighted to find many of the same lovely people still working there from my time about 15 years ago. We’re all very much looking forward to a new chapter working together as a family and also individually with the lovely SR team".
We chatted with Natasha to learn more about her and her family.
How long have you been modelling as a family?
"For about 4 years now. One of our first jobs as a family was for Next when Marni was about 6 months old. We love working together as it doesn’t really feel like work and the kids have such fun! My husband and I have been modelling since we were 13 and 15 years old so modelling as a family seemed like the perfect next step for us."
How would you describe your family?
"I’d say we’re a fun-loving, outgoing, charismatic family full of love for each other. Daddy Christian and George are both super confident, hilarious, and don’t mind being the Center of attention! Marni is sweet, gentle, super girlie, and loves fancy dress, dolls and sparkles. Mummy Natasha is bubbly, enthusiastic and loves to dance and sing in the kitchen with the family for Friday night discos."
Favourite modelling job you've ever done as a family?
"We loved shooting M&S all together for their Christmas campaign. A real highlight was us all wearing super cute matching Christmas PJ’s together and afterwards we had so many families telling us they all bought the family a set after they saw us modelling it."
What hobbies do you have?
Christian and George are real nature boys, and love kayaking and boating on the river. Both kids love to dance and attend ballet and dance classes every weekend. As well as a model, Christian is also in a band where he sings and plays bass so we all have a love of music! Kayaking or boating in the river, playing the guitar and singing, bike rides along the river towpath, arts and crafts, dancing, gardening, attending to our allotment, making pizza in our pizza oven."
What does a day in the life of your family look like?
"A typical weekend day always starts with a bit of dancing around the kitchen together, then either a kayak on the river or a walk in Richmond Park with a picnic. We always end with a family dinner and bedtime stories."
What are your top tips for other families wanting to get into modelling?
"Take lots of photos of you all as a family when you’re out for walks in the park or however you are enjoying family time! If it feels natural and you’re all enjoying yourselves then go for it."
