Post subject: How Do I Get His Photo Taken For Passport?
I need to get a passport photo taken of my youngest but he has ASD, will not keep his head still and doesn't understand keep still or look in the camera - what can I do? I've tried to take them myself but he just will not keep still, every photo is blurred because he won't keep still. There is no way he would sit in a booth - Any suggestions welcome!

If you call around your local photography place you'll find most do them. One down the road from me charge £5 for a set of 4 passport photos and they come with a guarantee that the passport service will accept the else they'll redo it free of charge.

I had Sams done at Max Spielman and they were really good. She was about 6 months old, and they said normally they lie babies down but as she was rolling I had to crouch behind her supporting her, and then her dad stood behind the woman taking her photo to get her looking the right way
then they took loads of photos in quick succession and put them on the computer to see which ones were the best.

I had Belles photos done in a photo shop "jessops" i think it was.
They were very good. I got 6 photos for about £4-5. They took a few until they got a good one (and one i liked ) They also come with a guarantee so if it "fails" passport services u get it taken again for free.
I think most photo places can do them for you.
Belle was about 7 months old when hers were taken, she was lying on a special round beanbag.
