Yesterday was the first time I've had my camera out the entire 21 days of December. Crazy. I asked a friend if I could shoot some pics of her with her visiting mom. She had not seen her mom in 4 years. I pushed past my fear of rejection (would my friend think I was being a weirdo?) and asked if they would let me photograph them together. They said yes. We met at the park. 20 minutes later we had some great photos, a few tears, and a lot of laughter. If I hadn't asked, I would have missed it.
TAKE AWAY: Just ask. The worst thing that can
happen is nothing.
