When planning any trip abroad with your baby, it’s important to remember that they will need their own passport. Filling out the form is usually the easy part. What most parents dread is getting that perfect baby passport photo. So, what are your options? Well, there are really only two options for you to choose from when you need passport photos for a baby. Below we go through the two options and which one we think is best for both you and your baby.
The photographic studio
Many parents opt for a professional photographer and a photographic studio for their baby’s passport photo. But, is this the best option? Yes, they will take the required shot that is beautifully lit, but is paying a professional really worth the money for just one photo? There are also the constraints of having to book a certain time and day. What if your baby is ill? The professional photographer is one way in which to obtain baby passport photos, but we feel there is a much better way.
Do it yourself at home
When you have a new baby, your life is obviously hectic. That’s why it’s best to take baby passport photos from the comfort of your own home. You can take a photo with any digital camera, or a smartphone, and you can take the photo at a time that best suits you and your baby. It’s much simpler than you think, as Paspic will crop and make the photo passport ready.
Points to remember when taking your baby passport photos
Taking that perfect baby passport photo at home is incredibly easy. You just need to place baby on a cream or white blanket and make sure that you include their head and shoulders. The picture does have to be in focus and there can’t be any toys or soothers visible when taking the photograph. The good news is that when taking your baby’s passport photo, they don’t need to look directly at the camera.
