Baby Modeling Agencies -- What Should You Expect?
As with almost all types of businesses, there are good baby modeling agencies and bad. The good ones will assess your baby for his ability to model and will acquire jobs for him if they truly believe he has what it takes.
The bad baby modeling agencies will take money from you and may even get you a few jobs, but they won't support you like the legitimate agencies will. The bad agencies may advertise "no fees," but will disguise them by charging you for photos or modeling classes that you don't need.
Legitimate baby modeling agencies will never charge fees for anything. In fact, the good agencies don't have to advertise. Don't waste your time answering an ad, especially if it seems too good to be true -- seek success elsewhere.
First-rate baby modeling agencies will only charge a commission if and when they secure a job for your baby. They'll want very recent photographs and snapshots will do just fine. Don't spend tons of money on professional photos.
Also, keep in mind that baby modeling classes are just a ploy to get more money from you. True baby modeling agencies know that you can't teach a baby to model and would never make that claim.
Some baby modeling agencies will do or advertise anything to get money from you. They victimize parents by promising them an exciting future and lots of money if the parents will follow their advice.
A good rule of thumb is that if you're ever asked for money up front from baby modeling agencies, don't let the door hit you in the back. These agencies are very clever and deceitful and have scammed many an intelligent parent.
The best way you can avoid these convoluted scams is to be an informed consumer. Before you commit your child to baby modeling agencies, do your research and be sure that the agency you choose is a legitimate one.
