This review is from: Baby Modeling & Beyond: From the Stroller to the Red Carpet (Paperback)
7 weeks ago I gave birth to the most beautiful baby in the world (just like every other mother) and I wanted to get a realistic view of the baby modeling game before I began submitting her photos to agencies. Being a former performer in NYC, I kind of knew what to expect from the book and while a lot of it is common sense (you can’t pay anyone to get your kid work. It kind of defeats the purpose, no?) there is a great deal of information that I wasn’t aware of pertaining to child performers and baby models (like payscale for babies and Coogan accounts). This book is the perfect length and easy to read. It gets straight down to business and loaded with filler. It also provides and index of agencies with submission guidelines. Yes, you can track down that information for free on your own, but this was much easier and more handy. This book was a lot of bang for my buck. I would definitely recommend it.
