Getting passports photos with four kids was a little crazy. They had a little screen that they sat them in front of and then said, okay don't smile and hold your head still. Captain E did the best at once again looking like someone rehearsing for a prison photo. I have no doubt his photo will be accepted although every time I look at it I feel like I'm looking at a cloudy day. This kid can not keep his eyes open when he knows a photo is going to be taken. They start watering and her starts looking miserable. WE ARE INSIDE! Does not matter. Just bring the camera out and it always happens On the other hand I think Gigi's photo was the best in the group as far as acceptable passport photos go. Her head is not tilted, her eyes are open, she isn't smiling but she's got a little hint of a smile there.
Same photographer, same seat, same backdrop. Two years difference...once girl can follow directions, one just can't hide her exuberance.
Here is that nice little program they have, makes sure the the head is in the right place, is the right size, and the eyes are where they should be. Apparently it makes it easier for them to run the facial recognition software, because you know there are lots of criminal masterminds under the age of ten ;) Oh well, let's check this errand off the list. Next step, headed to the post office to turn their passport paperwork in.
