One important note about infant and children photos is you cannot be in the photo with them. Each child needs to have their own separate photo taken and submitted with their own application. Below are some tips for acceptable photo taking:
For older children, the above rules and guidelines are applicable. If a child’s photo differs from their appearance, the government does not require a new image if the change comes from the natural aging process.
Choosing where to have these snapshots done is the next question. Whether you are looking for a place in town or somewhere online, there are plenty of options. A traditional route is going to the post office or local drugstore. These can be a bit more costly, not to mention you have to drive and wait for prints. This is about $10-$15 for two photos per person. A family of four can cost up to $60 just for the pictures. Another alternative to the traditional method is getting a passport photo online. Cost for these average around $5 for two photos. So a family of four could spend $20 instead of $60. Quite a deal!
