The Photo Studio is a location exclusive to Tomodachi Life. Photos of islanders can be taken with a chosen background, and the photos can then be shared with friends.

The options for taking a picture to start out with are Pair (up to two Miis), Group (up to nine Miis), and Whole Island. Once a child has been born on the island, a new option opens up, "Child". Taking a picture of a child has two options: with or without parents.

There are several backgrounds to choose from, which changes the poses depending on the option chosen. For example, the pose options for the amusement park background are different for pair and group.

Within the Photo Studio, it is possible to change a Mii's outfit and their expression (either happy, winking, neutral, angry, surprised, or asleep). However, clicking an expression will change all the Mii's expressions, not just one. In order for them to have different expressions, the question mark must be pressed to randomize the face each Mii makes.

  • If a child is either in stage 1 or 2 of its childhood, it can wear various special outfits made for babies/toddlers that are only found in the Photo Studio. These outfits may sometimes resemble costume pieces that can be given to grown up Miis. The special outfits come in all the same color variants that the grown-up outfits have.
  • In the Promo (Rock & Roll) background, there are two signs saying "1889". That is the year that Nintendo was founded.
  • It's possible that the player can take photos with a fully-grown child as a permanent resident.
  • There's a glitch for Child photos where when the player takes Child photos with just a fully grown child, picks "Field of Flowers" and zooms in on the child's head, it may cause the camera to clip inside.
  • Some poses in the Group photos have been changed in the western version.
