A friend of mine called me on Sunday night. His wife is having a baby anyday now, and he wanted to know if I'd do a photoshoot for him, which I have no problem doing. Here's the story... The guy (who went to HS with my friend) wants pictures of his mom. Apparently she has been diagnosed with brain cancer and she's been given a year. She is starting radiation today and they want pictures before she loses her hair. He sent me an email thanking me for everything and the willingness to do it. I'm not going to ask for any money, but if they want to give me something, I won't refuse. I guess I just don't feel comfortable asking for money in this situation. Just me. Here's my question. What type of shots would you guys do? I'm used to bridals, wedding, children, and mostly happy events. Don't want to make it seem like a sad photoshoot, but I want some great shots so they don't see her 'pain' when they look at the pics... and I guess I don't know exactly how to translate that. What type of background, what type of composition, etc. Suggestions...?
