No, the same would not constitute a cyber crime unless the content is not obscene or exploitative in any manner. Further, you must have the guardian of the minor sign a standard artist release form used in the entertainment industry. As far as labour laws are concerned, the consent of the guardian will need to be taken as a minor does not have the capacity to contract.
