Is Baby Modelling Worth it?
That depends on how much money you want.
Your baby won’t make tens of millions like adult or teen supermodels. Teen/adult supermodels make millions because they can model for many different types of catalogs and ads. They are sexy, have a celebrity status, millions of followers, and appear in the news. They are influencers. Your baby isn’t an influencer.
Baby modelling can bring you in some extra hundreds or thousands per month, depending on how many jobs your baby gets.
How Much Money Do Baby Models Make?
- Usually, baby models are paid $25-$50 per hour for small, local advertisement campaigns.
- Some jobs pay $35/h and only need to take pictures for a few hours so you’ll earn a little extra pocket money.
- Other baby model jobs pay $250 for a few hours photoshoot for a product commercial or catalog.
- And some companies pay $750 or even a few thousand for your baby to appear in a TV series as an extra or for a large advertising campaign!
It depends how big the brand is and what they’ll use the photos for. If they plan to use it for a big national advertising campaign or for their product packaging, they’ll pay you more (buyout rights).
Who Hires Baby Models and Why?
Brands and companies big and small need babies to model for them for their marketing campaigns.
This includes brands who need babies for commercials (video commercials, TV commercials, print ads, magazine ads, online ads), product catalogs, and for their social media accounts.
Brands post on average one picture per day on their social media accounts (Instagram stories, Snapchat, Facebook etc.). They must have rights to post that picture or they could be sued for millions.
Therefore, brands hire baby models.Apply to Baby Model Jobs Now!

Is it worth entering Baby Modeling Contests online?
If the baby contest is free, then enter it.
Beware of scammers. There are many websites which charge an entry fee to a photo contest and never give out prizes. Websites often come and go really fast and reopen under a new name.
Some paid-entry baby model contests promise that your baby will be discovered if it wins. However, sometimes the “amazing agent” who will sign your baby is actually an unknown, useless wannabe agent without any connections or clout.
If you find a legit baby photo competition which doesn’t charge and which has a decent prize (and doesn’t require you to go through endless surveys in order to enter), then enter it.
TIP: Check the contest’s Terms of Service (on their website) before entering and giving them your personal information. Some scam contests even write in their Terms of Service that they’re allowed to sell your information to unlimited companies (who will spam you endlessly). You’ll also find info about how many people have to enter in order for the contest to be active and when the prizes will be given out.
Some scam contests, say that at least 1 million people have to enter otherwise the contest will be void.
1 million! Good luck winning such a contest.
How do I submit my baby photo to the Gerber contest 2020?
It’s easy to enter the Gerber baby contest in 2020.
- Take a great photo of your baby.
- Upload your baby photo to Instagram and tag it with the hashtag “#GerberPhotoSearch2020” in the caption.
- Your Instagram profile will have to be set to “public” so that Gerber can see your contest entry. Otherwise, if your picture is private, Gerber’s contest judges won’t be able to see it even if you add the right hashtags.
You can upload as many pictures as you want. The more you upload, the more chances you have to be seen!
How to take a nice picture of your baby for your baby portfolio or contest entries?
- Dress your baby in something cute.
- Make sure there is plenty of light so we can see the baby and its face. If your room is dark, take a picture of your baby outside.
- Hold your camera or smartphone steady and avoid shaking or moving too quickly. Take a nice, sharp, well-lit photo.
We hope this article helps your baby start a great baby modelling career!
