Deerfield Beach, FL (PRWEB) December 16, 2004
Rich and Debi Schefren want other moms and dads to know what theyÂre getting into when they set out to launch their childÂs modeling career. The SchefrenÂs launched http://www.Baby-Model.com in an effort to educate parents about the realities of raising a pint-sized supermodel.
Their daughter, Ava, was on the cover of Parents Magazine Â a highly coveted spot in the baby modeling industry. ÂWe had to start from scratch,Â says Debi. ÂThere were a lot of fraudulent companies trying to take advantage of us, but we were very thorough in our quest to launch AvaÂs modeling career.Â
ÂContrary to popular belief, it doesnÂt cost a lot to get started,Â claims Rich. ÂYou can have a flawless portfolio and sign on with a reputable agency without breaking the bank.Â One thing the Schefrens want newcomers to know is that you wonÂt find many people willing to help the competition.
ÂThe baby modeling world is very competitive,Â says Debi. ÂBut since Ava is already established and has modeled for Ralph Lauren, Saks Fifth Avenue, and MacyÂs (to name a few), we donÂt mind exposing the industry in the hope that it sheds some light on some of the more unethical practices that take place.Â The scams that exist arenÂt just about the money, either. Rich and Debi teach parents how to safeguard baby models from being overworked and underpaid, and from being used in an exploitative fashion.
ÂParents need to know their rights so that theyÂre not intimidated when and if their baby does land a modeling job,Â warns Rich. ÂIt may seem like a piece of cake, but modeling Â especially for little kids Â can be hard work, so you have to know when to step in and protect your child.Â
The Schefren family is a strong advocate of many parenting issues. Since launching http://www.Baby-Model.com, theyÂve also introduced a line of informational products that can be found at http://www.Potty-Secrets.com, http://www.baby-sleeping-secrets.com..
