How to Get a Perfect Baby's First Passport Photo!


Designer Lucinda Ganderton 

One of the hardest photos to capture is baby's passport photo. Luckily I've done it once or FIVE times before, so I've learned a few tricks!



🌎 If you're planning on taking your own photo you will need two people to get the shot quicker

🌎 Don't try too close before or after a feed


🌎 If baby is sleepy use a water wipe to wash their face

🌍 Lie baby on a white blanket

🌎 Have baby in a block colour (not white), the darker the better

🌎 If baby uses a soother let them suck it until the last second

🌏 Count down from 3 to pull the soother so photograper knows to be ready

🌏 As you pull out the soother gently hold baby's hands down

🌍 Dangle a noisy toy above baby near camera so you'll get them to look at the camera


Hopefully these tips will help you get your photo within a couple of shots. All that's left to do is enjoy your holiday!
