We will take passport photos of babies at any time that suits you. We are experienced in capturing the photo that meets the requirements for the various passports. Please, do not hesitate to bring in your baby and we will take care of everything from there.
Although we try our best and take as many shots as necessary to achive results, occasionally it just doesn’t happen on the day (if the child is asleep for example).
So, to save you the hassle of coming into town with your baby, we have outlined below how you can take your own passport photos. We will print them out for you and make sure that they fit the requirements.
Taking The Photo
- Set your camera to it’s highest resolution
- Use a well lit area. e.g. Near a window
- Lie your baby on a clean white surface. e.g. A white sheet.
- Position the camera roughly four feet above the baby and centre their face on the screen with plenty of space surrounding them.
- Take as many photos as you need to in order to fit the passport requirements
- Eyes Open
- Looking at the camera
- Head Straight
- Both Ears Visible
TIP: To help young babies to look where you want them to, you can download some Infant Stimulant Cards from Brillbaby.com – As they say on their website:Research has shown that the secret to infant visual stimulation lies in high-contrast colors. The development of a newborn’s eyes – the structures of the retina that perceive color – haven’t matured enough to perceive the values and intensities of red, blue, pink, yellow, purple and green. Black and white are the easiest for babies to perceive and interest in these starkly contrasting colors will pave the way for your baby’s brain development.
These infant stimulation flash cards will help calm and soothe your baby as well as increase concentration skills, enhance natural curiosity, and stimulate the creation of brain cell connections.
