After two weeks of trying we finally have a mugshot that might be suitable for Freddie’s passport photo.
In the end, following many failed attempts to get him to sit still, sit up straight,look at the camera, and not pull a face, Daddy decided to video him instead of taking still photos. Then he played the video back, pausing it every few seconds until he came across a brief moment where Freddie was facing the camera with a (fairly) neutral expression. He took a screen shot and asked Freddie’s big brother, our in-house tech support, to photoshop it to remove the background. Hey presto. (See ‘Little Life Hacks’).
