  • Never hurts to try, but be VERY warry of any agency that comes back asking you to put out thousands of dollars on a professional photo shoot. There are ALLOT of scam modeling agency's doing this today and they target gullible Moms who are led to believe if they put out this $$ for a pro shoot their kid will be a professional model.

  • Is this a legit modeling agency? I would seriously look into that before I sent pics of my DD. You don't know who those people are or what they are doing with your DD's pictures.

  • My opinion is that it's up to YOU.  If you want to, go ahead!  If you don't really want to but other people tell you to, then don't.  It's your kid.

  • i am on the fence about this i think some of these people push these little ones WAY too far and half the time the kids don't want to do it. it's more about the mother living thru the child if you are doing this just to see if she could be a model and are not gonna become one of those crazy ladies we see on t.v. then go for it! but keep it fun for her!!

  • I assume they are looking for natural beauty first so they don't want makeup on her. I would do as they ask so they do not see a difference if this goes forward.

  • I'm not for it. I think kids should be kids but that's my own opinion.
