    Why don't you try taking them yourself? I did it for D. Just cover his carseat or bouncer with a white blanket and take a few closeups. When you get them developed select the best one and ask the photostore to shrink it to passport size.

    Here are the guidelines from the Canadian consulates

    There is a small photoshop in Happy Valley, right next to the wet market, that takes Cdn passport and citizenship photos. There is also a photo shop across the street from Times Square in CWB that called 50M 28956586.

    Tks for your info and website.

    They require a photographer's stamp at the back of the photo. I have checked with several photographers and they do not have this. Any ideas?

    If that's the case, best to ask the Candian Consulate. They might just have a list of photographers that they recommend.

    No stamp needed

    Hi Cari,

    You don't actually need a photographers stamp on the back of the photos, what you do need is the name of the shop and address. As long as you have that information and your guarantor's signature you should be fine.

    I just had my passport renewed before we moved out here and that was good enough for mine.

    Hope that helps.

    There's a small photofinishing shop in the IFC. I believe it is near the main escalators. Sorry but I don't remeber the name.

    They were very nice and took many shots of my baby to let me pick the best one. They know the size requirements for Canadian Passports, so there was no hassle.
