Hmmm I’ve had passport picture takers tell me they’re getting a reflection off a bobby pin and they need to retake it. So I doubt the background/shadow thing would fly. I do have a cheap suggestion though if you want to try again at home – buy a white poster board! They’re probably like 99cents and your baby is obviously small enough to fit on there. And maybe have your husband hold up some flashlights at different angles to get rid of the shadow? She’s cute btw!

@iarebridezilla:  super cute baby.

In Canada they wouldn’t fly.  They’re super crazy picky about contrast, shadows on the face and the background having to be solid white.  I don’t know if they’re as picky with infants though.

@iarebridezilla:  One thing the State Dept recommends is to put the sheet/blanket over the carseat, and sit the kiddo in there. It may help avoid the shadow. It does say no shadow on kiddo’s face, but nothing about next to them (though there is a little on her face).

I think the texture will probably be okay, though.

What a cutie!

When I updated my passport, I sent them two different pictures. Both got rejected, so I gave up and got it done at the post office.

Also in Canada I think you would need to have a solid onesie on – like a bright colour 

Not sure about the states.

Cute baby!!

Yeah the shadow wouldn’t fly here in Canada.

It took me like 5 minutes to have my passport photos done… and didn’t cost much either. I realize it’s more of a hassle with a baby, but don’t you guys have places in the States that specialize in taking them?
