    I would attempt to take your own photos as others have suggested. You can take your time! I don't think they used to be anywhere near as strict as they are now - we have old passports from when my husband and I and our siblings were babies/toddlers and they are hilarious! The photos are big grins or laughing!

    Under 2 the mouth can be a little bit open BUT not a big open mouth smile, if that makes sence. I went to a kodak kiosk and she said if the photo was rejected it would be re-done free.

    We had one done at a camera place when DD2 was 14 months. Her mouth is open but there are no teeth showing. They told us they would retake the photo if it was rejected but it wasn't.

    I had a work colleague try to get photos for her 6 week old and they just hung around a camera place taking photos until they got some that were acceptable.

    We went to pixie photos and they just put a white sheet behind 6 month DD's head while she was strapped into her stroller. Really quick and easy and cost us $10. I suck at photography so it was money well spent!

    I went to the post office. We just laid DS on the ground with a white blanket under him. He looks a bit shocked and his mouth is slightly open but it wasn't mentioned at the interview.

    Just recently did 3 kids passports, as PP have mentioned, younger kids are placed on white sheets for photos. Both DD2 & DD3's mouths are open but their expressions are neutral which I think is what the passport office is after. Neither photo was rejected.
