06 Dec 10 PHOTOS IN 10 MINUTES.
On a Saturday night a little lady came into the studio (part-time gig at photobooth) asking about a family photo with 5 people. She needed it at a really specific time the next day, and we were full of bookings.
I explained the situation and offered to book the next available studio time.
She politely declined. I watched her excitement of getting a family portrait slowly fade.
As she was leaving I asked, why? with regards to the specific time slot.
She said: “Oh, my only son go to marines tomorrow.”
I couldn’t let her say goodbye to her son without at least one picture in her hand
I told her to come back Sunday and I’d take their picture.
btw, only charged the cost of the film $15
10 photos in 10 minutes.
