About Us

The Mini Model is an online shop catering to the stylish child and parents who love to expand their little love's wardrobe with pieces that turn heads and are camera-ready for those ever-important social media snaps.

The idea came from top NYC Children's Talent Manager, Maria DeSantis.

Maria has been working with young models and actors for over 12 years, in an industry where personal style, personality and making a statement is a MUST for auditions and bookings. Nervous parents preparing for their child's photo shoots, auditions and bookings always have one main question: "What does he/she wear?". This question was always uttered with sheer panic and followed with "I don't think I have anything right, I need to go shopping right now!". Granted, the main concern is always the first impression and performance of the child, but having high stress levels over clothing is definitely an unwanted distraction.

So, Maria started The Mini Model to offer parents in the biz, and those who are not, a selection of stylish clothing that will match the adorable look and personalities of young models, actors and fashionistas alike.

Maria is also bringing her child model photography expertise to The Mini Model, for amazing memories of your little star.
