If you join an agency they can arrange for some shoots, some will have to be paid for but they're well worth it.

I suggest applying to an agency, given your age, you will need to have permission from your parents/guardian.

I was a model when I was 2-6 then I tried getting back into it at 8 and it was hard.
Before just jumping into modelling check the following:
u have the right weight and height - I got declined at age 11 cus I was shorter than I should have been...
u are sure u want to go into modelling and won't regret it - it can mess up ur mental health and make u not feel body positive - I gained weight and they declined me and now I'm not body positive...
u know what kind of modelling you want to go into - beauty, jewellery, fashion etc

Portfolios - if u get an audition for modelling and if they think u have what it takes then they will give u a portfolio and help you get up there. I would recommend 6models and then have your audition at macfashionstudio London - 6models was my old company and they were amazing and macfashionstudio is where most people start off.

ALSO, do you have the money? like, are ur parents alright in spending quite a lot of money on this? - portfolios can be expensive. mine was Β£700......
and have your parents given you permission to do this?

A legit agency (e.g Storm) that believes she can find work will never ask her to pay for photo shoots. But there are plenty of good for nothing agencies out there leeching money from starry eyed young girls.

A good agency will provide professional photographers to take 20 or so photos of you to add to your portfolio.
