Our new portrait studio is well equipped to handle newborn passports. Your little one will need eyes open for the photo; plan for a time when they are well rested and perhaps with a full tummy. Canadian passports must be taken on a white background, so perhaps nothing white for babies first passport. Once the photo has been taken, newborn photos are ready for pickup in approximately 30 minutes. Feel free to relax in the store or we can deliver the photos to your car if you prefer to wait outside.



Toddlers will enjoy our new just their size stool for passport photos and for pre-toddlers who are still wobbly at sitting on their own, mum and dad are encouraged to hold them below the waist for added support. At this age, passports are required with mouth closed. For those too young to understand sometimes a fruit snack, cracker or biscuit for them to eat will encourage toddlers to keep their mouth closed.


Portrait Passports

Adult passports now come with a 5 or 10 year option. Why not book a portrait passport? Passport rules still apply including no smiling, but within our studio and under our lights perhaps we will create a passport you might want to show off a little?
