We do welcome current photos of your child, which will be kept on file for the period of time that the child resembles the photo. Please update us with current photos as your child grows. We encourage you to send us recent snapshots by email with the child's name, date of birth (not age), height, weight, clothing size and guardian contact information. Be sure to send small files less than MB. Please see work permit information below.

Work permits: Any minor working in the entertainment business in the State of California is required to have a valid entertainment work permit (good for a six month period and renewable by mail). This can be obtained free of charge from the Labor Board at 619-220-5451, 7575 Metropolitan, Room 210, San Diego CA 92108.
