Same here. I have maybe 3 of my father from my lifetime. Everything else is way before I was born. Getting my mom to let me take her picture is like pulling teeth too.
If you click on my profile, you will see what I think is a beautiful photo of me and my nephew. It was taken at over 400 pounds. I didn't want my picture taken at all that day, but you have no idea how glad I am that the moment was captured. And no one that looks at it is focusing on my weight.
