Passport Picture for Babies

P.D. asks from Boca Raton, FL

Where can I take my 2-month old for his passport picture in the Delray/Boca area? I went to local CVS and Walgreens and they wouldn't do it. I also called the local passport acceptance facilities with on-site photo service and they said they don't take baby passport pictures.

What can I do next?

Most of these places are not able to provide passport pics to infants b/c they are not set up to do so. We tried many places and we got one at Target (they said they did it). Well when we got to the courthouse they said it wouldn't work and the reason is that to take pics they need the infant to be sitting upright which requires an exersaucer or some other baby gizmo that most of us have at home. It is the way they "stage" it that counts...I'm sure there is an official reason for it somewhere. But anyway, that's why some outfits do not offer infant passport pics and you must call ahead of time to ask specifically or else you've just wasted fossil fuels and brain cells.
Congrats on the new babe!

When our baby was 8mo, we went to Delray Court House on Atlantic Blvd. They give you and application and you turn in 2 pictures (passport size). We took the pictures ourselves with our digital camera. Don't forget to bring an original copy of his birth certificate. You can fill out the application right there on the spot or get one at your local post office. Bring your ID and your husband's. You both have to sign the application and pay a fee and you get the passport within 3 to 6 weeks.

Hope this helps!

I had my then 19 month old daughter's passport picture done at CVS this summer. It did take quite a few shots, but we got it done! (She was camera shy that day.)
Take a white blanket for the background and use the car seat. It just needs to be a head on shot with eyes visible. (CVS we used was on Lantana and Military Trail in Lake Worth area.)
Just keep calling to different CVS's maybe that one isn't comfortable doing it!

What do you mean "CVS wouldn't do it."?

I wonder why not. I just had my 2 year old's pic taken and they certainly had no problems with that.

When my 4 year old was 2 months old, we took him to istanbul. All the passport office wants is 2 2x2 photos with the application.

I put a pastel blanket for background in his bouncy seat out in the yard, held up his favorite toy and snapped the photo he's got in his passport now, but that was just for convenience. It never occured to me that I couldn't just get it snapped anywhere.
