I would have to disagree with the previous post, but only because I know the industry. Generally, if you hire someone to take the photos for you it may be considered a "work for hire" and you, as the employer, will be considered the author and possess the copyrights in the work. However, usually photographers that shoot aspiring young models will have them sign a release that includes a clause naming the photographer as the copyright holder. Did you sign such a release?
