Title: What to Expect from Your Baby's Passport Photo Session

What to Expect from Your Baby's Passport Photo
  • Everyone must have a passport for
    international travel, even babies. Although,
    getting a passport for a baby can be simple,
    getting a passport photo of a baby can be
    challenging. There are many rules for taking
    passport photos that even babies must follow.

  • Getting a little one to look straight into a
    camera or cooperate during a photo session
    however, can make it almost impossible to abide
    by these rules. But, there are some guidelines
    you must be aware of that can make you and your
    child better prepared for the photo session.

Make Sure the Face isnt Covered
  • Facial clarity is the most important part of
    a passport photo, so you must make sure your
    babys face is clear and uncovered. The babys
    face will have to be visible without any other
    objects in sight. During the session, parents
    arent allowed to hold their baby up, so infants
    are laid down on white sheet or cardboard to get
    a clear picture of their faces.

  • For the gentlest photo session for your
    infant and the best baby passport photos in
    Edmonton, you should check out PhotoStop.

There Shouldnt be Any Objects Visible
  • Unlike other photo sessions, children arent
    allowed to have toys, blankets or other
    distractions to keep them cooperative. This is
    because passport photos can only have a clear
    shot of the face and top of the shoulders. In
    fact, the shoulders should take up about 30 of
    the entire image,

  • but this can vary from one country to the
    another. Just make sure the babys hands arent
    visible in the photo either.Parents also cant be
    in the photo, so no holding the baby or
    attempting to hold the baby up. However, youll
    be required to stay by the photographers side
    and keep the baby focused and engaged during the

The Baby Must be Engaged and Focused on the Camera
  • Baby passport photos must be taken while the
    baby is awake and looking directly at the camera.
    Entertaining the child will keep them engaged and
    awake for the photo. Remember to stick as close
    to the photographers side as possible to keep
    the baby focused on the camera.

  • The babys mouth must also be closed and free
    of pacifiers, bottles or other objects.
    Additionally, the babys face must be squared
    with the camera and their eyes completely open.

The Lighting Must be Right
  • Lighting is a major component of taking a good
    passport photo. For your babys photo, the
    lighting must be even and devoid of any shadows
    in the background or on the childs face. This is
    one reason why studios dont allow parents to
    hold their babies up. However, the photo can be
    taken with the baby in a car seat and white
    cardboard placed behind them,

  • but it shouldnt disturb the lighting.
    Lighting will also be adjusted to show your
    babys exact likeness and skin tone. Keep in mind
    that the photographer is only allowed to use a
    plain white or grey background (depending on
    regulations). For passport photos in Edmonton
    that follow all of the lighting guidelines and
    more, remember to visit PhotoStop.
