Joe’s Passport Photo

I bundled Joe up yesterday and we walked across the street to have his photo taken.  We’re going to the US consulate sometime next week to apply for his passport, social security card, and Consular Report of a Birth Abroad.  It’s a lot of paperwork and pretty much each form requires photo ID of Joe, not to mention boatloads of paperwork on me and Chris.

I was crossing my fingers that Joe would sit well for the photo.  It took several attempts and some clever positioning, but the photographer finally got one that was semi-acceptable.  Even still, he had to use Photoshop to crop out my hand and straighten his position a wee bit.

I couldn’t help but laugh when I saw the final result…

It looks like a baby mugshot!  Poor little guy – he wasn’t impressed, and I think it shows.

Baby passport photos – just another aspect of  being an expat.

PS – Joe totally has his daddy’s eyebrows 🙂

    Hilarious! And too cute!!!!! He looks so manly here but he’s just a baby. We are off to renew our Canadian passports in NZ, wish us luck! I doubt my pic will look as cute as Joe’s.

    Love it! I’m surprised they are allowed to use photoshop. I was at the consulate this week and was surprised at the extreme security once stepping off the elevator. It seemed more secure than some of the domestic NZ airports! Good luck with all the paperwork.

    i total can feel for you! it took 4 shots for Lydia at 8 months, but 10 shots for Diana at 22 months! plus it was an instant shot thing, so we had to pay for each one! Glad you got a good one! 🙂
