Gooma Models, Inc. 

Gretchen, the founder of Baby Gassy Gooma clothing company, launched Gooma Girls in the Spring, 2009.  The name was changed to Gooma Models in June 2009 after repeated requests to add a boys modeling division.

The unique concept began in 2001, when Baby Gassy Gooma (www.babygassygooma.com) decided they would find their models in a rather unique way.  Instead of using a typical modeling agency, they decided to start holding model searches thru their own customer base.  The concept was unique in that each models parent served as the photographer.  They were mailed clothing in exchange for pictures.  It was a win-win situation.  The kids got free clothes, and the company saved a lot of money by not having to pay costly agency fees.

In 2005, there was so much interest that they began holding annual Gooma Girl model searches.  Each year, as the line grew and became more popular, so did the interest in each year's model search. 

Though she is not one to publically seek the praise, Gretchen is often times credited for having started this modeling trend, and even industry insiders such as Journal Modiste have written about it.  Gooma Girls has received press thru James Girone and Dashin's Guide to Online Children's Fashion. 

"This type of modeling gives 100% control back to the parents." 

"In this day and age, especially, moms really need to watch over their children, and that is why we encourage them to take the active role by becoming the actual photographer for the shoot."

"Anyone in the children's clothing industry knows it is important to show their items modeled on kids to show the fit and style.  Because it is so important, we decided we would set the standard thru Gooma Models on how to get your child involved in modeling in a safe and common-sense way."
