    Tips for taking pictures of a baby

  • The passport photo should be a good likeness of the baby
  • Babies do not need a neutral expression in passport photos
  • The head of the baby does not need to be straight
  • The colour of the eyes should be clearly visible in baby passport photos
  • There should be no supporting hands  visible
  • baby does not need to look straight into the camera

  • Generally, the rules for baby passport photos are relaxed slightly by most countries due to the difficulty in getting babies under one year old to look at the camera.
