Lots of parents wonder whether their baby is suitable for baby modelling and in this article you may find answers to your questions!
Every new parent will tell you that their bundle of joy is the cutest little baby on the face of the planet, and who knows, they could be right!!
But what many parents don’t realise is that there is a lot of demand for baby models, and that baby modelling can be a great way to show off your adorable little one to the world. The market for baby care products is one that will remain strong. Regardless of economic conditions, manufacturers of baby care products need to promote their wares in what is a very large and competitive market. And every parent of a young child knows just how many baby care products there are, from rusks and cereals, to nappies and wipes, to rash cream and skincare products, to baby clothes, the list is endless.
While starting your baby on a path towards a modelling career might be the last thing on the mind of young parents, a modelling
photo shoot can be a lot of fun for parents and baby alike. It’s clear from the feedback
from parents of baby models that it’s a lot of fun for everyone:
From a Baby Model Mother…”I started my baby modelling at two months, and during the teething months she was very noisy and we couldn’t take jobs on. The thing to know is that when your agency emails you a casting you can actually accept or decline. Getting to a casting is half the work getting accepted at a casting is where you get paid. For my child I found when she was a baby a portfolio was the thing that sold her on the days when she was cranky or tired from the journey to the casting.”

“Sienna and I had lots of fun on this photo shoot for baby sleeping products!! It was like a F1 tyre change with lifting Sienna as she slept from pod to pod (to model four different product designs)! I was a very proud mummy watching Sienna be adorable during this shoot and we cannot wait to do more with Models Direct!!”

“Caprice really enjoyed her assignment with Next. She particularly enjoyed the fact that the shoot took place on the beach, which is her most favourite place to be! She definitely wasn’t nervous this time and got really stuck into the tasks. She loved playing on the beach making sandcastles with the other children and and because of the setting it gave her time to be herself whilst also having her little job to do. The assignment involved her posing in a number of outfits supplied by next from their Autumn Winter Collection 2015. The first shoot was of her modelling a gorgeous winter coat which really suited her and the second shoot was of her modelling a dress and tights matching outfit which she modelled alongside the other children and shots were taken of her holding hands with three other girls. They were laughing and giggling together and they all looked adorable.
Caprice has definitely gained a lot of self confidence since her very first shoot when she was very little, and the more she does them the more you can see her growing into a proper little lady! I would most definitely recommend anyone who is thinking of signing their child up with Models Direct to do so as they gain experience and confidence from the assignments and you can look back on all the previous shoots they have done and feel so much pride over what they have achieved.”

“Theo had a great day modelling for the new Pampers ‘poo face’ advert. Theo had to take part in some filming and some still shots to enable the director to put together the commercial. This was great experience for Theo as it has got him use to lots of people, big lights and generally everything that goes on whilst being in front of the camera! I chose to sign Theo up to Talent Management to get some great experience being a model and I hope that Theo will be offered more modelling roles to continue putting a great portfolio together for future job opportunities. I would recommend anyone to put there baby forward for modelling – I think it’s great fun and very good for your baby’s development :-). Thank you Models Direct!!”
It’s not so much that parents dream of their little baby becoming a model, just that it’s a great experience all round. The photographers and art directors who run the photo sessions are great at working with young babies and anxious parents, because they’ve done it many times before. Parents are put at ease, there is plenty of time for naps and feeds, and they love meeting some of the other parents getting involved. The baby needs to be photogenic and it would be also good if they were quirky with plenty of character as they’ve got to have a sparkle about them. Temperament is also important; they’ve got to be good natured and sociable to put up with meeting lots of strangers.
