When you see print ads, catalogues, television advertisements and even company websites, you’ll notice there are plenty of children appearing. That’s because if a business sells baby products, they want bright and happy babies appearing in their marketing. If you think your baby might have the look and temperament to do some modelling, it’s likely you’ll consider finding a babies modelling agency.
Modelling for babies is a great way to earn a little money towards their education or future. But you need to find the safest and most professional way to get their career started.
What does a babies modelling agency do?
A babies modelling agency is responsible for representing your child to clients who need talent. On one hand, they work for clients, always trying to send the very best babies for the client’s requirements. On the other hand, they’re working hard to represent your baby, ensuring they get plenty of opportunities.
In short, a client will let them know they need babies for a certain job – it might be clothing websites, toy stores or something similar. The agency will then look through their list of registered children, and send details of the babies they think are most suitable for the job.
Alternatives to using an agency
There are other ways to get modelling work of course, because not all businesses use a modelling agency. Smaller businesses especially may advertise through other means, such as social media or other online forms. This allows you to book in an audition or send photos of your child to see if the business wants to meet you. While most people have good intentions though, there are some things to be aware of if you don’t use an agency.
Firstly, your child’s safety. If you need to take them to auditions or jobs, you want to ensure it’s a professional setup. Casting agencies usually only work with clients who provide safe working environments and professional modelling shoots. So, using an agency gives you a little extra piece of mind.
Also, there is naturally a risk if you’re sending photos of your child to unknown businesses online. Through an agency however, you know that clients are legitimate. In addition to the safety concerns, when you use an agent, you usually get paid a little more because the clients are generally bigger, and you’ve got someone representing you.
