First thing to know is that there is no standard pathway into child modeling. There are many different ways that children become models. I’m going to discuss a few ways below, but be aware that everyone will have their own individual journey.
The first thing you should do is think about what your ultimate goal will be. Are you looking to eventually book the bigger gigs like Gap, Old Navy, J. Crew or are you okay with your child modeling for smaller boutiques and gigs? If your ultimate goal is to have your child model for some of the larger companies, then the agency route is the way to go.
We know that several companies are starting to do own casting calls and contests, but agencies are still the leading way to get your child opportunities with the larger companies. These companies work with talent agencies to pull the best talent based on their criteria. Oftentimes these shoots are larger productions with large investments so they want to know that they are getting kids that have been agency tested and recommended so that the shoot can go as smoothly as possible. Also, please keep in mind that your location will also dictate which gigs your child is able to book. Some of the larger companies only work with agencies in the bigger markets like NY, LA, ATL and Miami.
