We had an easy time taking photos of both our babies.

Lay them down against a white diaper changing pad. Take the picture, then use a passport photo resize tool online and print. (I believe there's a tool right on the .gov website.)

Cut it out bigger than you need, then wait for the passport agency lady to yell at you about the right size (bigger can be trimmed, too small and you're screwed). Works every time.

Thanks for clarifying. But either way, BOTH parents must authorize that the child can have a passport. Whether you and your spouse go and get a form notarized (or have them come to you) or go and get the forms signed together is basically the same step that has to be done to have the government issue a passport for the child.

There was a law passed because of the scenarios of parents taking their children out of country without the intent of ever returning them to the US to see their other parent.

All I know is that when I called to get passports for my then 11, 7, and 18 month old in California, I was told that both parents had to come down to the office and sign the forms in front of a government official. I am sure that if I told them that this would be difficult they would have told me about notarizing the forms..........
