the new rules on passport photos are very exact and it’s important you get your eyes at exactly the right part of the picture. but that’s tricky if you are 7 years old and the seat doesn’t go high enough.
kezia and i thought about this in advance (following a rather disastrous and expensive trip a few months back) so decided to take a cushion. but when we got there we realised we’d forgotten it.
we weren’t going to be beaten so instead we popped in to the local supermarket and bought 4 rolls of environmentally friendly kitchen rolls. in their packets they were just the right height (when placed 2 on 2) for kezia to get her mug shot in comfort.
this was our first attempt with just one layer which wasn’t enough. i didn’t take a picture with the two layers as i was holding on to her so she didn’t fall off !
