I'm wondering where to have baby passports photos taken? I normally do it in the photo booth but how do babies have theirs gringrin?

We did DD's when she was 4 months. Laid her on a white sheet on the floor and stood directly above with a camera

If you go to somewhere like Max Spielman they will keep taking until they get it right and give you a refund/ replace if it isn't accepted. All my kids have been done at those type of places.

Max Speilman did DD2's last week, they just sat DH sideways with DD on his knee so he wouldn't get in the shot. It's the cutest passport picture in the world grin < biased >

We went to Jessops for DDs (don't know if they even exist anymore?)

We did ours at Snappy Snaps. They can put them in a bouncy chair with a whit cloth over it if they're too little to sit up.

Paid to have them done in a local photo shop - full refund promised if deemed unacceptable by the passport people and only marginally more expensive than a booth.

I took them myself and had them printed by Paspic

Timpsons (the key cutting place) often do them. My dd had hers taken there - she stayed in her pram, sitting up, and he put a piece of white card behind her.

We got it done in jessops too... Don't some boots and chemists do it?

I second Paspic and have used them for both dd and ds. Take your own photo against a light background, upload it to the Paspic website and they post passport compliant photos back to you in a couple of days

Our local post office does them.
