Baby modeling agencies and child talent agents

Baby Modeling Agencies

Have you ever wondered how to find auditions for kids and babies or how to get your baby or child started in modeling? Here is some information that may help.

Many proud parents want to get their child into modeling, acting or commercials. However, most don’t know where to begin.

How to Find Casting Calls and Auditions for Babies and Kids

Finding auditions for kids online for free is not always easy. There are large retailers like The Gap and Gap Kids that do an online baby model search, but winning those contests is difficult and most kids are chosen by popularity on the website which often times means, the more friends you have voting, the greater your chances. Many of those baby photo contests have thousands and thousands of submissions and often times most parents and their friends will have a hard time even finding their child to vote.

So what else can you do? Well… you get your child an agent. You begin by taking some nice snapshots of your baby (they do not need to be professional headshots) and then sending them, along with a cover letter to agents that represent babies and kids. Before sending the photos, it may be a good idea to call the agency and find out about their submission process.

If your child is as photogenic as you think they are, then the agencies will call you back, set an appointment to meet and hopefully accept your child.

Here is a short list of a few agencies that accept children for representation:

Most agents are located in New York or Los Angeles, so if you do get an interview, be prepared to travel to them at your own expense. Unfortunately, agencies do not normally cover the travel expenses for talent that wants to meet and interview.

If you are looking for child acting auditions and you do not live close to L.A. or New York, you may want to really consider if the venture will be cost effective. Remember, even if you get an agent it will be up to you to get your child to the auditions without any guarantee of getting the job. Most people have to audition numerous times before landing their first job. For that reason, families that have children in showbiz tend to move to where the work is.

There are also other considerations such as having to open up a special account to collect the money and work permits. Those differ state by state and your agent will discuss those with you.
