DS is currently 10 weeks old. Any tips for getting his passport photo taken?
I've found a place in Vic Park (Perth) which say they specialise in baby passport photos, have any of the Perthies been there? I just have No idea how you get a tiny baby to look at the camera, open their eyes and close their mouth. Ambitious much???

I had my DS's passport photo taken at around that age. They put the camera in his face and snapped hundreds until they got one that met the requirements. It's a horrible photo and 3 years later it could be any child but it works Goodluck

They lay ds on the floor on a rug. He was 3 weeks.

Similar to PP's- bub was 8 weeks, got put on the floor on a sheet of white cardboard and they took the photo looking down at her. They got hers quite quickly but usually they have to take lots of photos to get one suitable one.

Kodak Maddingtion Perth are the best for baby passport photographs! They were recommended by the perth passport office!

Ha ha I didn't think of them doing it laying down, here is me picturing them trying to get him to sit up and keep his head up. Der...baby brain!!
I guess digi cameras have made this a lot easier, as pp said, they can just take hundreds.

Same- my baby was about 3 months and they took one of her laying down. I jiggled a toy above the camera to help her look at it while they took the photo

My DS passport photo was done at approx 4 weeks and hubby held his face towards the camera and they photo shopped out his hand. We tried laying him on a change mat with a towel but his head was still quite stiff and he always looked to the same side not face on.
Just got DD3 passport done at 3 months and she has a huge grin on her face but apparently it's ok as long as they don't have teeth.

I had my daughter photographed at about 2 months for passport photo. They laid her down on the floor, got ready for the photo, took dummy out and snapped.
I recently had my son photographed for his passport when he was 3 months, he doesn't have a dummy so we just laid him on the floor and snapped away and after a few try's, got the perfect snap.
Btw, both were done at a Chemist in Subiaco.
