Taking Passport Photos

He looks like a convict!

I was a little apprehensive when we knew we had to take some pictures of Ben suitable for his passport. Having read the literature about what was acceptable, and what was not, the one concession that was made for babies was that they didn’t have to look directly into the camera. Gee Thanks!
To start with his head would need supporting, which was impossible on his tiny head without my fingers showing at the side. So we decided to lay him down, the trouble is that as soon as he lay down he went to sleep!
We spent 1 Hr in the shop and gave up thinking we could do a better job at home, and then spent 2 hours at home trying to produce something better. Well, after about 150 photos we eventual got something we recon will be acceptable. I will let you know if that’s the case!
