Regardless of where you are getting a passport photo from, the same rules apply for a child’s photo. 

The easiest rule of thumb is to look at what your requirements are as an adult. 

  • When photographing a child, the picture should have the face squared off in the camera. 
  • Make sure the child’s eyes are open and mouth closed. 
  • Avoid having your arm and hand in the picture while holding and infant up. 
  • The child must be looking into the camera and not away. 
  • No smiling or crying photos are accepted. 
  • Like with an adult photo, it must be the same size as yours, have good lighting and be in focus. 
  • Plain white backgrounds are accepted. Avoid shadows or hair being on the child’s face.
