Contact local photographers or photography businesses to get modeling photos taken for a child. Modeling agencies may also have an on-site photographer available to take portfolio photos or can offer a referral to a reputable photographer who specializes in modeling photos for children.
Modeling photos should include a variety of shots of the child, including a head shot that is an 8" x 10" photograph displaying the child's features from the neck up. Modeling agencies also desire an 8" x 10" photo of the child from head to toe to show the child's posture and stance. A shot that shows the child's personality is also recommended. Photographers often opt for a posed picture that shows the child looking comfortable and happy.
