Baby Modeling: Is it a Good Career Choice?

Jun 7, 2008
Any good parent worth their salt in parentdom, upon hearing from those around them how cute and adorable their baby is, will undoubtedly head to the nearest modeling agency and sign their cute little bundle of joy up into a lucrative career in baby modeling. But is this the right thing to do? There are several things to consider before jumping into this pool filled with piranhas and sharks.

If you can get by that warning, then you will want to know how to proceed. The obvious route is to go online and look for the free contest offerings. Because the first place to start is to get your baby noticed. Oh, sure you can submit photos to modeling agencies, but entering your baby into the free contests online or in your community is so much more fun and immediately rewarding, especially if your baby wins!

Then, the next logical step is to enter your beautiful baby in a traditional pageant, one with runways, tiaras and talent segments. Talk about fun. I've been to pageants like these before. In them, everyone wins some sort of prize, which is good to build up self-esteem, something your baby will need truckloads of in the years ahead.

The good thing about online photography contest entries, is that once you have entered your baby's pictures for any of these contests, they remain there for outside influences to find, such as modeling agencies and those with connections. If your baby wins the contest, even better. It could lead to more contests, and more exposure.

What about those cutest baby contests? The name says it all. These contests are executive magnets. What modeling executive wouldn't pay attention to cutest baby contests? If your baby wins or, heaven forbid, just place, in one of these contests, you can be sure that modeling agency executives are just around the corner, looking at all your cutest baby has to offer their clients. A good exposure event.

One often overlooked criteria when considering whether or not to raise a baby model in your household is how your baby reacts to this life. In other words, is your baby generally happy most of the time? And more importantly, is your baby easy to get along with and gets along well with others? If not, don't bother. Shy, irritable, hard-to-get-along-with babies don't get hired.

Another area of consideration is you. That's right, you. The parent. Are you up to the challenge? If you are overbearing or hard to work with, it's no deal for them. They will not hire your child.

Lastly, if you feel that all of the above doesn't pertain to you, great. Then the only other area to consider when helping your child pursue that career in baby modeling is this: watch out for disreputable people who do not have the best interest of you or your baby in mind. Deal only with accredited agencies who handle legitimate opportunities for you.
