Do People Stop And Tell You

Your Child Should Be A Model

But You Don’t Know Where To Begin?

We Can Help - Without You Spending Thousands Of Dollars On A Portfolio!

At Miss Dina's Models, we know all children are beautiful - no matter how old.  We love to capture them exactly as they are.  Quite’s our passion.  Look at the portrait shown above.  Mom watched us in awe as we created these images.  We don’t just love what we do - we eat, sleep and drink what we do!  5 days a week...10 hours per day...bring it on baby!

Master Photographer Dina Ivory (owner of Dina Ivory Photography* of Tallahassee FL), has been photographing innocent smiles for 30 years. In fact, Dina is considered an expert in her field because she is so passionate about her photographic artwork.

We Need Models From Newborn to 17 Years

Here’s is the bottom line. We need a variety of model types (we are not associated with any modeling agency) to submit to a local magazine for requests for their numerous covers.  No experience is necessary when Miss Dina photographs your child.  Leave that to her.

We also need models to frequently update our portfolio of newborns to 17 years - so we NEVER LOOK STALE in our artwork.  That’s what our clients expect - the latest and the best from us!  We also love trying out new photographic and lighting techniques that Miss Dina has learned from some of the top photographers in the country.  She studies year round with the very best talent in the country. She needs models (like the ones in the slide show below) to test these new ideas out.  Adjust your volume then click on the play button for a short sample.

"Dina has been photographing Caroline since she was 3 weeks old. I can't think of anyone else I would trust to take her portfolio pictures as we embarq into the world of modelling. She was so careful to make sure that Caroline looked beautiful but tasteful - perfect for a 14 year old!!! Thanks Dina!! Liney and I love you!!!" - Ruth Mason, Tallahassee, FL  

Is There Really Such A Thing As FREE?

We give our awesome models a free (’s really free) photo shoot PLUS you’ll get a free (’s really free) digital file for your comp card and to build your portfolio. A comp card stands for “composite card” and is used in the modeling industry with modeling agencies.  This digital file can also be used for your Facebook and My Space pages.  We also give you a $100 studio credit towards any digital camera files we create on cd that you may want to share with family and friends.  No purchase is ever required at our studio. The running joke Miss Dina tells her clients is “Leave your credit cards and checkbook home.  They’re not necessary.” 

Should your child be picked by the publisher of the magazine for the cover, you will get a copy of the magazine for your child’s ongoing portfolio.  All models are considered but the publisher chooses.  We have no say in the decision process.

Remember: No experience is ever required for our modeling photo shoots.

What's The Catch?

There is none. Free session - one free digital file. YOU ARE UNDER NO OBLIGATION TO PURCHASE ANYTHING TO OBTAIN YOUR ONE FREE DIGITAL FILE. Be aware, we have many Moms who want us to photograph their children, unfortunately the available appointment times (taken by other clients) are limited for modeling. In fact, a 4 to 5 week wait to get in front of Miss. Dina's camera is not uncommon because of the overwhelming demand for her modeling expertise. You can read what our client’s say about Dina at the bottom of this page.

Dina, you are awesome! Kylee did not want to have her pictures taken but you brought her right out of her shell... (the nut that she is)! I was hoping once she started she would be fine and, of course, she did great! I never knew she could turn that smile on and off quite so switch-like. Wow! Thank you again... we will be back!!! Lyn

"All she has to do is take one photograph and you are a customer for life! My four children adore Dina Ivory and it definitely shows in our photos."Karena & Travis Miller - Tallahassee, FL

Every visit with Dina Ivory Photography is a blast! My son doesn't enjoy or appreciate having his photo taken, but Miss Dina always captures fantastic photos of him. My daughter, on the other hand, enjoys every second in front of the camera. Somehow, between one child running the other direction, and the other child "striking a pose," Miss Dina still captures memories to last a lifetime. Although professional portraits do cost more, while viewing your portraits in your home, the cost never crosses your mind again. You pay for what you get, and one trip to Miss Dina will cover what 50 trips to a "chain" studio still can't even come close to capturing. I have never been dissapointed with her work, and have always left completely satisfied with fantastic memories to last a lifetime. Thanks Miss Dina! We love you! The Woolery Family

Dear Dina, My children had a blast getting photographed by you. Your sense of humor and your excitement was above my expectations and theirs (especially my 12 year old son who said "Mom...modeling, really???). He had the best time! You are truly talented and I want to thank you for even capturing their inner beauty! Elaine Owens

From the time our daughter was born eight years ago, our family knew that Dina Ivory would be the one to capture how tiny those feet were, how adorable she looked with her baby brother, and how both Briley and Bryce have grown up.  Dina has always captured the perfect pose and the perfect smile.  I love that Dina's photos adorn our home.  The memories she has captured for us are priceless and we will always treasure them! - Keith and Lesley Jordan - Tallahassee, FL

"Throughout the years our family has truly enjoyed many experiences with Dina Ivory Photography."  The Brown Family
