Go to a commercial photographer: pay him or her to take some photos of your baby. Take those photos to an agency specialising in children. If your kid is as cute as you think they are they'll put him/her on the books...

Best advice FORGET IT, for various reasons (probably your sprog isnt as cute as you believe, although every mother has a right to expect that their offspring is tops).

A) http://www.elisabethsmith.co.uk/

B) http://www.scallywags.co.uk/

Accept no others.

Send in a photo, and await the call to sanctify.


Good Luck.

roncevicasht..

Many parents pay photographers to take photos of babies and children. Right now I'm offering TFCD while I build up my portfolio. Because there are enough parent's out there glad for this I wouldn't consider paying.

So the only real market I would assume is going to be advertising. Both the good and bad news is it will be a high turn-over market so they'll be looking for new babies all the time.

Oh and babies grow FAST, so get in quick while they're still small...

Just email an agency like scallywags some regular snaps of the baby. They will take a look and invite you in to meet them if they think the child has potential, as I understand it good child agencies do have fees, unlike decent adult agencies (can't remember why now but it was a good reason). The first thing an agency look at is the child's looks, but more important to them is it's personality, a happy, constantly smiling baby can be known to be very busy because they are easy to work with. Don't waste money on getting images done for an agency (only for yourself and family) as the agency usually prefer personal images in the first instance.
