This is so true. I went to the government office to get my visa photo last week and the lady infront of me ha a newborn child. I think they took around 50+ photos before they got one they could accept.
How long do baby passports last? Will he have to live with that photo when he's 5?
Apparently they last up to six years but they have to change the photo "when he no longer resembles" the picture. Which...the picture we finally took ALREADY in no way resembles him, because he's propped up like a muppet.
Wait till he's six ... (https://yesshesaidyes.files.wordpress.com/2010/05/calvinhobbes-smile2.gif)
Our son got his passport at 2 months, and just got his passport renewed after 5 years. I guess TSA can relax a little now that his picture looks more like his current self.
They must have been truly terrified at the prospect of a plane being hijacked or bombed by a three-year-old.
Or a terrorist posing as a 3-year-old.
My friends ended up taking a picture of their infant laying on a tightly-stretched white sheet. Definitely easier than propping up a 3-week-old!
That's the smart way to do it. Apparently here in Berlin some photographers also have a little device to hold their heads up. But this particular photographer had none of those things and just made me contort myself to make it happen.
I know it must be frustrating but this was ridiculously adorable. And you added mittens for hands! <3Congrats. That's going to be some well-rounded kid.
He's already pretty well-rounded if you ask me. Not a sharp corner in sight. Very bloblike.
That...was so comic worthy on its own. Mustn't forget I'm talking to a pro here. Had me laughing/crying.
