Headshots: taking your child’s picture of 8-by-10-inch from the neck to upwards.
Body Shot: taking your child’s picture of 8-by-10-inch from head to toe.
Composite Card: It is a 5-by-7-inch card which flaunts the small photos of your kid in various styles and looks.
Hiring an Agency
You have to hire a modeling agency to get work for the kid. Well, here you have to have professional photos to give them to the modeling agency representing your kid. To get an agency, you need to send your kids’ pictures to them and they will zero in if they want to work with your kid or not. Normally the kids who make good eye contact with the cameras are taken by the modeling agencies.
You have to take the safety measures since you are putting your kid into the world of adults. Make contacts with the agents or anyone for work by yourself – don’t allow your kid (if he/she is big enough) to do so. Post the kids’ pictures online to the websites of the casting agencies. No need to put the direct contact of the kid rather give your details.
