Passport Photo Booth is an iphone passport photo app that allows you to take and then resize passport photos on your phone. We used a large piece of white posterboard taped to the wall as our background. I found the best lighting to be outside in the shade – it kept shadows away and gave a nice, bright light for features. The app then allows you to size them to print at 4×6 size (6 per page) and save to your phone. I then uploaded the photos using the Shutterfly app, and printed them at Target. Total cost for our passport photos? $1.74. After many takes (and much effort on everyone’s part not to smile) here’s the finished results:

As you can see, Jafta had the worst time trying not to smile. There are about 100 more photos of him where that came from. Glad that’s done. Now . . . where should we go??
