    Passport Photos for new born

    Can anyone recommend of a place in Central that will do Australian passport photos for a new born.

    I really don't want to mess around trying to do it myself as I know the Australian Embassy is fussy when it comes to passport photos.

    thanks!

    I had to get passport photos when my baby was only a week and a half old - I tried a few different places, but then they recommended doing it at home on a white sheet and just getting them to develop it and size it properly and everything. It worked SO much better for us, because at home, we could just do it when she was alert and looking around - because it's HARD to get a newborn looking straight on and eyes open and mouth closed and "neutral expression"... but we applied for the Aussie passport last week and everything was fine. So you can try that if you like, it depends on how old and alert your baby is and everything...

    The photo store in Stanley Plaza does all foreign passports sizes as well as the one in the Admiralty Center across from the Park N Shop.

    I've used the photo place in IFC mall, too, and photos were fine for Aussie passport.

    Trying to take the photo myself with baby lying on a white sheet just did not work for me.

    my son took his 1st US passport photo at @2 months. We brought him to the photo store, and put a white t-shirt behind him in the stroller. The issue with ours was that my son's eyes had to be open for it to be accepted so we were there for about a half hour, but we finally got it done. I know in the UK if the baby is 6 months and younger, his/her eyes can be closed.
