Can you take an ID photo with X specifications?

How long does an ID photo appointment take?

A typical ID photo booking with print copies takes less than 10 minutes.

Do you offer walk in service?

Yes, however our studio sometimes closes for private events, so booking online is your best bet to guarantee availability.

You can also call (587) 664-7561 to ensure availability.

Do you do infant ID photos?

Yes, the price for an infant passport photo is $29 and we allot 15 minutes of time to take your infant ID photo. Any time beyond the allotted 15 minutes is subject to an incremental fee of $29 per 15 minutes.


Our procedure for taking infant photos is to place the infant in a lit box and take the picture from overhead. Assistance from the parent(s) is necessary to keep the infants hands out of the frame. If possible, please bring a snack for the infant to chew on to ensure we can capture an image with a closed mouth.


If you would like to book an infant ID photo using our online booking system, please use the “Baby ID photo” add on during checkout. If you have multiple infants please pre-pay for 1 infant, and any additional infants can be purchased in studio.

Can you deliver digital copies of ID photos?

Yes, digital copies of ID photos are an additional $5.

All digital copies are emailed to clients shortly after their appointment.

Can I get additional print copies?

Yes, additional print copies are $10 per set.
