Hi i would like to start my child in some modelling for some extra money and something to put in the baby scrap books!!!

she loves the camera dancing and is generally happy

Im in Sydney Australia, im abit hesitant cause im not sure how much i should spend or how reptable they are, i know work isnt certain but im willing to take the chance.

I googed baby modelling and its the main ones that comes up, which probably has thousands of kids rep them, which gives my baby girl very small chance

Any experiences or suggestions are welcome

The only places I've seen for baby beauty contests is in the local county fair. If you're a bit rural, you might want to check that out. (I'm in Canada, but surely you have county fairs in Australia?)

I know my cousin won "longest eyelashes" when she was 10 months old. I get a kick out of it, because in the next two tents over the judges were deliberating over "biggest pumpkin" and "best rhubarb jam". :) I'll bet there would be some parents at something like that that would know the next step.

Hi, sapphire thankyou for your input!

Your right in alot of ways and I've researched alot about the industry and different agencies, im not going to pay for 100's for photos that i can take myself with a professional camera myself,

I dont mind paying a years memembership and if it doesnt go anywhere i guess we will leave it at that =)

where are you located?

One suggestion is to refrain from entering your daughter into child modeling until she is old enough to verbally express a desire to model or perform in front of an audience. She is a very pretty little girl, there making her very exploitable. Besides, very few child models actually MAKE money. It's actually quite the opposite: parents PAY for professional modeling lessons, photo shoots, entrance fees, and a variety of other undisclosed monies when dealing with child modeling. For now, just enjoy her childhood. Have fun with your own home movies and videos.
