    Getting Your Baby Into Modeling and Commercials

  1. 1

    Decide how serious you are about wanting to get your baby into modelling and commercials. Making this happen will likely not be a case of overnight success. You will get many no's before you get to the yeses. If you are willing to be diligent and persistent, your efforts can pay off in the long run.

  2. 2

    Schedule a photo shoot for your baby. You will need professional colour photos that capture all of his wonderful facial features.

  3. 3

    Choose the best photo of your baby, and send it to a local printing company that prints modelling comp (composite) cards. Have your baby's name printed on the bottom of each card. The comp cards are typically around 60p per card. Order enough comp cards, about 100 of them, to last you a while.

  4. 4

    Create a modelling resume for your baby. The modelling resume should include her age, height and weight. Include a telephone number to contact you or the baby's agent. If your baby has won any baby contests or pageants, you can also list that on her resume.

  5. 5

    Submit your baby's comp cards to modelling agencies. The resume should be stapled to the back of the comp card. Search for casting calls and auditions via the Internet. Many casting calls will require you to e-mail or mail a photo of your baby. In this case, you will need to send one of his comp cards. If no comp card is requested in advance, be sure to take a few with you to the casting call or audition.

  6. 6

    Submit your baby's photos to photo contests. Winning such contests will look good on the baby's resume. Some websites that periodically hold photo contests are GreatAmericanPhotoContest.com, TheCuteKid.com and Parents.com.

Tips and warnings

  • A legitimate modelling agency or agent will never ask you for money up front. The agency or agent makes money by signing your baby as a client and afterward receiving a percentage of the commission from work your baby does.
