We are happy to make your modeling dreams come true!  

CFK Model Days

Many people in our society are told they need to be thin or they need to change something about themselves to be beautiful. That stands in direct opposition to the Word of God, which tells us we are all beautifully and wonderfully made. We here at Christ For Kids want to let people know they are beautiful the way they are. To further that goal, Miss Julie's Hair Studio brings you CFK Model Days. 


On Model Days, Miss Julie styles the models' hair, provides fashionable apparel, and does their makeup for our CFK photo shoots. The finished pictures have scriptural quotes and/or encouraging words attached to them. The photos are meant to make a statement for Christ and share the message that everyone is unique and special in every way. We have decided to give the young and old alike the opportunity to enter into modeling in a very healthy way. We want our models feeling good about themselves knowing they are beautiful just the way God created them to be. The pictures we take are always appropriate and are shared on social media. Please contact us if you would like to participate in a model day. No one is ever turned away. We work with people of all ethnic backgrounds, and who come from a wide array of personal circumstances, including victims of human trafficking. 

Participation in Model Days is free of charge. We do, however, offer order forms if prints are desired.

For more information please download and fill out our form and permission slips.

Missions 

All children need affectionate care and an environment where they feel, and are, safe. Amasharay understands the needs of these orphaned children and is willing to spend a significant amount of her life to care for and love these kids so they can grow into healthy and whole individuals. Amasharay is teaching them the word of God and helping them understand through her words and actions that they are loved. 

Not Forgotten

Every now and then we get models and young adults who are in crisis situations. They call us in need of shelter, food, and clothing. We do our best to ensure our models' safety. But we soon realized we needed an entire program dedicated to helping those in crisis. So Not Forgotten was birthed from a real need.
Christ For Kids helps those in crisis who have no one else to turn to for love or support. We help them find shelter, food, and clothing. Next we get to work finding permanent living situations to help our young adults get on their feet and off the streets. We do whatever needs to be done to help people know they are not forgotten.
Our Not Forgotten program was inspired directly by the words of Jesus, who tells us that He will never leave or forsake us. When it seems you have no one in the world, CFK is here for you. You truly are Not Forgotten!

TESTIMONIALS

"I met Julie while attending cosmetology school, we were immediately friends. We shared aspirations and dreams on several occasions, on one of these occasions i shared the fact that I would be buying a one way ticket to nyc, going down with nothing to start a new life since Rochester had nothing left for me, but negativity. Julie was unsettled by this and decided to blow my mind with absolute compassion and complete selflessness. She came to me one day at school and said that she wanted to take me to nyc rather than the bus and set me up in a safe place to live for 2 months just so I'm able to get grounded. Needless to say I have no words even now as to the kindness and love Julie has. I've now been in nyc for almost a year, still have some struggles to face before I'm planted solid, but thanks to Julie I'm starting to live the life I know I can achieve and deserve. We are still friends to this day and talk on the phone constantly. She continues to share projects she works on to help get other people such as myself up on their feet to live a better life. It is my feeling that Julie deserves all the gratitude in the world as well as all the help from others to continue her astonishing efforts and ideas!"

Sasha NY

"... Julie I'm so proud of you. You are strong and positive and I will always love you because you and your books with your words of wisdom from God gives me the strength to make through each day! I love you girls and I thank you for your blessings and prayers. CONGRATULATIONS ON YOUR JOURNEY OF LIFE. STAY BLESS BEAUTIFUL QUEEN! SUCCESS!"

- Jeanneal Williams






"...I liked modeling for CFK because of how friendly the community is, especially in front of the camera. In CFK we dress up in makeup and hairstyles, yet the amount isn't hiding who we are and what we look like. I find that very powerful because of how our society views what and how girls should look. The makeup is too much and the hair is in extravagant styles, but only to look "the part" and themselves. I feel like that should change for the better, and I think that CFK is doing just that!"
- Ashley

"...I loved modeling for Christ for kids ministries. It was so fun, my friend Abby and Miss Julie who did my make up and planned the shoot were amazing to be around. They helped me talk through some things and made me feel comfortable with the make up and shoot. It was so fun! In front of the camera was the modeling part, but behind the scenes was all love, friendship and fun!"

- Hannah



"...Miss Julie has been a pleasure to work with, and to learn from. Miss Julie brings creative new ideas to Sunday school class each week for the kids to participate in. She has a keen spirit for the Lord, and her enthusiasm brings joy to the children she shepherds. It has been enjoyable to work alongside Miss Julie and share the responsibilities of molding young hearts and minds to seek Jesus".

- Liam von Berg, 16

"...I absolutely loved modeling and being around these lovely ladies. It was more than modeling though, it was a time of encouragement and making each other comfortable with who we are. God made us in his image and there's nothing like being around people who make you realize it. Thank you to both Abby and Miss Julie!"

- Delayne





"Julie is not only a gifted woman of God and author, she is a dedicated mother! The topics she covers are applicable to every child and every family. This helpful tool will not only encourage children but empower parents!" -Joshua Finley Lead Pastor Elim Gospel Church

"...Miss Julie is one of the most incredible teachers on our team at EGC Kids. She continually brings God's Word to life for the kids. Every week that she teaches our kids they are on an adventure to travel back in time and experience the Bible hands on. Julie is never afraid to involve everyone in the classroom and has a heart to bring the kids to Jesus and Jesus to the kids. She really connects with the kids and they with her. The Lord has truly gifted Julie in understanding the mind of a child and has been able to address many emotional problems that children have, through her books, to bring light and understanding to children and parents a like. It's been a privilege and honor to know Julie and have her a part of our team!"

- Emily Seymour, Coordinator, EGC Kids
