This is attorney Bill looking into your legal question. The United States code only prohibits the public depiction of those under the age of 18. The US code does require you to retain records and proof that the models were over the age of 18 at the time of filming.

The New York Penal code punishes those who take obscene material of children under the age of 17.

The law is contained in article 263.

You would also need a proper model consent to publishing contract.
