if you have a portrait studio and do childrens/family portraits do you get the parents to sign a release? and does it allow you to use a photo of the clients child to advertise?

Just curious how it works with children mostly because they obviously cant sign a release

You must have a signed release to use the images for advertising, publicity, or even studio display. On my order-invoice I have 3 lines for them (the parents for kids). One is their order approval. The 2nd is for them to sign that they understand that I own the copyright. The last is a release for me to use the images for studio display and other places as well as publicity and advertising as well as for print competitions. They can ask to have any of those things crossed out when they sign.
