Mommy and Baby Modeling

Modeling with your baby

 There are more opportunities than ever before for model moms and their babies. With the proper preparation you can give you and your baby every advantage while auditioning and increase your chances of booking the job. It is important that you are with an agency that can help you navigate the sometimes confusing and unfamiliar territory of mommy modeling.  EM Talent a division of Expecting Models deals exclusively with model moms, real dads, and kids. As a result, Expecting Models (EM Talent) has the experience and connections that cannot be easily replicated by other agencies.

Pictures are among the most important thing you can do to help ensure a successful career for you and your baby.  They are the casting director’s first impression of you. High-quality pictures make you look professional and represent you and your baby at your best.  Update your baby’s pictures every three to four months to ensure the casting director is getting an accurate idea of what your baby looks like, which will help prevent you from getting auditions for roles that you and your baby are not right for.

Before going on a casting make sure your baby has the proper documentation to work. Your baby will need a child performer work permit. Your child becomes eligible at fifteen days old, and the permit lasts for six months. California law also requires that your baby has a Coogan Account, which sets aside fifteen percent of your baby’s earnings in a trust fund.  Get this paperwork as soon as possible and bring the original copy with you to all bookings. You don’t miss out on any unexpected opportunities.

On auditions do not forget to pay attention to the little details that you focused on as a fashion model.  Make sure that you are prompt to auditions, and double check your availability for the callback and shoot dates. The last thing you want is to create a bad repertoire with clients. Finally, don’t forget to look the part by arriving at auditions looking as put together as you did when you were a fashion model.  As a model mom you will encounter all types of adventures. Being with an agency that understands your unique needs will help ensure your success moving forward in the future.
