Hello all. First, thank you to everyone who shares their knowledge and experience. It's been very helpful so far, and now I am almost ready to send the packet in. Regarding the passport-style photos of petitioner and beneficiary, I'm a bit confused about the requirements. My girl has taken official passport photos and mailed them to me, and of course I can do mine here, but the instructions say "must...be printed on thin paper with a glossy finish..." Am I just overthinking this? Are the standard 2x2, actual passport-style photos ok, or do I need to have them printed on some thin, glossy paper? Thanks in advance.

 

"You must submit one color passport-style photograph of yourself and one color passport-style photograph of the
beneficiary taken within 30 days of filing this petition. The photos must have a white to off-white background, be
printed on thin paper with a glossy finish, and be unmounted and unretouched."

Passport photos from Walmart or Walgreens will do just fine. They have the templates and they work. That is what I used.

I used 

 
multiple times and never had an issue.  The hard part is getting enough light to eliminate shadows.
 
Once you download the image, send it to Walmart for 1 hour pick up.  Total cost:  $0.27 for 1 4x6 with 4 2x2 photos (give them out to your friends!)

Regular passport photos will be fine as long as they meet the requirements (like you noted)
