Here are some general tips on what photographers and casting directors look for from baby and child models:
Very easygoing temperaments. if you’ve got a baby who wakes up smiling from her nap, that’s your perfect baby modeling personality.
Small kids. if your child wears his age in clothing size or smaller, and also looks young, that means he can be cast at his age or younger. Physical development is HUGE at this stage of the game; photographers want to work with kids who can follow directions and are generally easier to deal with. There are roles for the larger children as well.
Classic good looks. This is a tough one to quantify, but think Gerber baby. Chubby cheeks, big eyes and generally appealing. There is also a market for exotic-looking models, particularly multi-ethnic ones!
- Easy going parent to work with. We say this YEAR and YEAR, if a casting person doesn’t like the parent-THEY WON’T HIRE THE KID. Period. By Law, the parent needs to accompany the child on set. If you’re dealing with a high maintenance ‘helicopter mom’, then NO ONE on the production crew will want to work with that parent- which means, simply put-your kid DOESN’T get the job. Enough said! 🙂 The Starlets Company screens both the children and weeds out ‘problem parents’ (a 24-7 job parents!) for the wonderful hard-working agencies and managers we work with. Yup-NO DRAMA PARENTS.
