There's a prevailing theory on why government officials do not want you to smile in your passport photos...
They want you to look like you're going to look after traveling all night in a packed airplane, surrounded by screaming children, irritated travelers, being fed peanuts for dinner, and crammed into a seat meant for a short, skinny, waif.
You need to look angry, hungry, tired, frustrated, disheveled, and worn out.
Okay, maybe not quite that bad, but you get the idea. They want your photo and your face to look similar once the machine at the customs counter tries to match you to your passport photo. But that doesn't mean you REALLY have to look that way. In fact, here at Newsome's Studio, we pride ourselves on providing you the very best passport photo on the market. We light it properly, we make it razor sharp, and we allow your eyes to smile without forcing your mouth to follow suit. It's the best of both worlds!
