The Passport Photo

Oh yes. The inevitable infant passport photo shoot. New Zealand passport photo requirements are ridiculous and they are ridiculously enforced, even for infants. Eyes open and looking at the camera, mouth closed, both ears showing, shoulders straight... 6 home photo shoots and about 100 photos later, these are the "Best Of". The last one is the "winner"-- we're sending it up with his application this week. Pray it passes.


  1. Those are ridiculous requirements! But what cute pictures! So happy for you guys, praying for you.

  2. Love the last one! Like a contemplative old man! ^_^
    He's so cute, Carolyn (and James)! Wish I could meet those amazing boys of yours!
    much love ^_^

  3. I love this! Micah still has his passport with a picture taken when he was 3 months old (a bit easier than a newborn), but I smile to think of him walking through customs at age 5 and seeing the officers expression.
