Baby Modelling Tips
Are you convinced your baby has modelling potential? Models Direct has a few tips to help you out!
It can be a fun way to fill the first year and spend time with your new-born. While my heart burst at the seams when her pictures appeared in magazines and catalogs, what I wasn't expecting was how it developed her confidence and self-esteem. It also teaches babies about working with others.
To find a reputable baby and child model agency, search online, and ask mums whose children model about their experiences. Do your research and avoid makeover studios posing as modelling agencies. In order to get an agency to see the potential in your baby, get professional, simple shots taken. These should not be airbrushed or digitally manipulated.
No silly shots in sunglasses or eating ice cream. Clear facial head shots and full-length shots are best at showing if your baby has what it takes.
Agencies are always looking for new-borns because they have a short modelling span.
They are always on the lookout for the next fresh face. Six months is a popular age because by then babies are sociable and smiley, plus they're stronger and starting to sit. It is before they reach the terrible two’s!
One thing that's guaranteed is if you've spent three hours on a packed train getting to a job or casting, you'll arrive with a grumpy tired toddler. You need to sacrifice your time to take your baby to these modelling auditions, and they might not get the part. If you know a good local agency, use them.
