Everything you need to know about baby modelling

Baby modelling

Everyone loves a cute baby model, right? In fact, we’d even go so far as to say that everyone loves babies because let’s face it – they’re all so cute! 

That’s why we reckon judges at cutest baby contests have the hardest job in the world. 

It’s also why your little cherub may just have the perfect opportunity to break into the world of baby modelling. Why’s that? Well, let’s explain. 

Why the world needs baby models

If you’re a parent, then you know that there’s a seemingly endless list of baby products out there on the market. And quite often, the best way to market these products is to show you pictures of a cute baby with that very product. 

It could be baby food, toys, clothing, or even baby mops (yes, they are actually a real thing). Whatever it is, the chances are that a big brand needs an infant model to help them promote it. 

And that’s where you and your aspiring baby model come into the picture. 


A golden opportunity

It doesn’t matter how big or small your baby is. It doesn’t how much hair they have on that cute little head or how few teeth they have. Once they are three months or older, they could have a genuine chance of fame and success in the world of baby modelling. 

Okay, perhaps we’re overselling the fame aspect, but nevertheless, big brands are always keen on using baby models in their advertising and marketing campaigns. That’s why here at Bubblegum, we’re always on the lookout for fresh little faces to add to our list of infant models. 

In short, this could be a golden opportunity for your child to take their first steps in the baby modelling industry. 


Before you apply

Before you fill out that application form, we need to be just a little bit serious for a moment. 

Baby modelling takes quite a lot of effort from parents. You need to be prepared to take your baby to modelling shoots and help keep him or her calm when it’s time to shoot. 

Most importantly, though, your baby also needs to be okay with being held by other adults, and this is the one aspect of infant modelling that can become a bit of an obstacle. 

You see, many photo shoots involve adult models working alongside baby models. Sometimes brands may look for a parent or guardian to work on a shoot with their baby, but in truth, the opportunities are few and far between. The reality is that while you will be there the whole time, your baby needs to be comfortable in the arms of another grown-up. 

So if you think your baby has the right personality to work alongside other children and grown-ups who are not you, then we’d love to hear from you. 


What happens next

Once you have filled out our application form and sent us a nice photo of your baby, we’ll get right back to you and let you know when our next open casting event takes place in your city. 

We have offices in Sydney, Melbourne, and Brisbane and schedule regular open casting events in each office. You shouldn’t have to wait too long before the next one comes around. 

If all things go well at the open casting event, we’ll invite your baby to join the agency and start looking out for the perfect baby modelling opportunity for their first gig. 

We’ll put your baby forward for any suitable modelling jobs that come into the agency and make sure that all of our clients know that we have a new baby on the books. 

Unfortunately, we can’t guarantee that a client will offer your baby work. After all, the final decision lies with them. Although your baby may be the cutest child that ever entered the infant modelling industry, they may have a specific requirement for their photo shoot. 

What we can guarantee, however, is that we’ll do our very best to make sure that every client that approaches us in their search for a baby will know about your child. 

We’ll also pay close attention to the market, and if we hear even the slightest whisper of a baby modelling job, we’ll find it and make sure your baby has a chance to land it. 

Baby modelling is a great opportunity to get involved in the modelling industry and who knows where it may take your child. So if you think your baby has what it takes (of course they do) then don’t be shy. Apply now, and we’ll get right back to you as soon as we can.
