Frequently Asked Questions


How does the agency work?

We receive many requests on a daily basis from production companies, photographers, casting directors, event organisers, business owners to supply babies, toddlers and pregnant mums for TV, magazine and business assignments. Our easy to use, innovative, cutting edge website is easily found in all the top search engines which is one reason we get so many enquiries.

Another contributing factor to our incredible success in finding work for babies is the quality of our talent profiles on this website. Our aim is to make it as easy as possible for a potential hirer to find the perfect baby for their project. This is done by ensuring the portfolio pictures are of a high standard, that each child has a downloadable 'Z' or comp card, and whenever possible, the model profile includes a short video showing the child in action. This approach has more than doubled our enquiry rate. Doesn't your baby deserve the best?

If we like what we see in the application, you will be invited to register with the agency and have a test shoot done. The cost of registration is £155. However, we only ask that you pay a 55 registration fee up front. We take the remainder from the fees earned out of the assignments you get booked for.

What is the registration fee for?

In line with current legislation, we do not charge representation fees or any up front fees to find work. The fees charged are for the design, upload and maintenance of you child's portfolio on our website for one year.

Should I password protect the portfolio?

It's entirely your choice. Our advice is NOT to password protect your baby's profile. If the portfolio is not password protected it will get a lot more industry viewings and consequently a lot more requests for auctions and bookings.

However, we entirely understand that this may be an issue for you. If this is the case, we will will password protect the portfolio so that only vetted individuals who have been given a username and password can see the protected content. We will also issue you with your own username and password so that you can view your baby's portfolio.

Can I upload my own pictures?

All pictures that go on the portfolios must be up to date and professional in quality. If you already have up to date professional pictures of your child you are welcome to send them to us and we will upload these pictures into your portfolio for you.

What is the hiring process?

Any business or production applying to hire baby models must go through a strict vetting process to establish their credentials and legitimacy.

Our clients absolutely love our search tools as it cuts down on hours and hours of work. It enables these businesses to quickly find the perfect baby for their needs. Dates and model availability is checked with parents, fees are negotiated with the client and baby will then receive a confirmed booking for an audition or quite possibly, a paid assignment.

What is a Comp or Z Card?

Comp cards are also known as 'Z' or 'Zed' cards. An free online downloadable comp card is included on your portfolio pages. They are usually around A5 in size and show several pictures of the model. They also contain the contact details of the agency who represents the model. You will find that printed comp cards are very useful when you attend auditions and bookings where they can be handed out to industry professionals that may be interested in hiring baby for future assignments.

Comp Cards

Who does the Agency accept?

We receive an average of 300 baby model applications a week depending on the time of year, from a catchment area which includes the south east and goes up as far a Birmingham. Applications from all ethnic backgrounds are welcome. All our applicants are carefully assessed on suitability, temperament and extrovertness in a studio environment. We accept less than 5% of applications onto our books.

Do we need professional photos?

When you make your initial application to join our agency, snap shots are fine - that's all we need to see.

There is a a lot of advice on the web which says 'No, professional pictures are not required. However, a quick look through many agency websites show some shockingly taken pictures of baby from which a casting director has to make a snap decision. These pictures are often out of focus, badly lit, poorly composed and are, in short, totally unsuitable for the purpose. Simply put, professional photos sell products and services. You need to give baby the best possibly chance of getting booked.

As part of the registration process, we will provide 5 FREE professional portfolio photos and a FREE comp card to go on your baby's profile page.

Our parents are always delighted with this FREE portfolio service and are frequently happy to leave the profile exactly as it is. The pages can be improved by adding additional pictures to the profile page - most parents have a total of 10 to 15 on the page. You are very welcome to provide your own additional pictures. There is also an option to purchase additional pictures from our photographers taken during the assessment.

Do I need a printed portfolio?

A printed portfolio consists of an A4 or A3 book with plastic slip in sleeves into which baby's portfolio photos can be inserted. Tear sheets from any magazine photo shoots can also be added. It is not essential but, as with comp cards, it is an extremely quick way to show off your baby's talents to industry professionals during a booking or audition when they may be too busy to sit down at a computer and look at the online portfolio. It is definitely worth while having printed a portfolio if you can afford the extra expense.

Printed Portfolios

How much commission do you charge?

The agency earns commission on securing you work. We deduct just 25% commission on assignments. So, for example, if baby has worked for two hours (our minimum booking) and has earned £60 per hour, we would invoice the client for £120. When we receive payment, we would keep £30 (25%) and pay baby £90 (75%) This compares favourably to many other agencies who can charge considerably more.

Model Contract

Are model assignments guaranteed?

As an agency, we cannot guarantee your baby will find work. During the application process, we pick babies that we think are going to do very well. At the end of the day, it is the client's choice as to the which baby they think is suitable. All we can do, and do very well, is maximise your baby's chance of being picked with a stunning website portfolio presentation.
