    I need to get Grace's picture done for her passport but because I haven't got any local photographers around here I thought I would try her in a photobooth first. How the hell are you meant to get a 9 month old child to sit still and face forwards?! So anyway this is the best she would give me but I don't think it will be suitable for a passport photo will it? Just double checking before I take her to get it done properly. P.s she doesn't always look this miserable!!

    I've just had Lexie's done at Klick, they laid her on the floor on a special white sheet and took the picture that way! Saved the hassle of trying to get her to sit up! Before i had them done i was in the post office and whilst there they sent away 3 people who had come with passports due to the baby photos! Apprantely they are really strict with them at the moment! xx

    I really doubt that they'd accept that. We got Hannah's done when she was 2 months old and it was a nightmare! She wasn't even close to holding her head upright and we had to try to support her to get a good shot of her face, nightmare I tell you

    Ah never mind didn't think they would accept it Vickie, it's a pain! It's stupid how strict it is for babies that can't even lift their own heads let alone look directly into a camera lens.

    Also at the likes of Jessops when you are selecting your photo size you can select passport which is 9 x passport size photos (all the same) on one 6 x 4 photo.

    Getting the background right at home could be tricky though.
