My BFF is having her son's 2nd birthday party tomorrow and wants me to take pictures, but I'm a little annoyed that she would want me to do that when I have my own two kids I have to be chasing after. His birthday was on the 25th and she had me take some pictures of her son so she could put one on his birthday cake and I didn't like that either because I'm a little insecure about my pictures and don't really want her telling people I took the picture that is on his cake (especially since right after I took the picture she ran to the grocery store and got it printed out for the cake)
Here is the picture she is putting on the cake...I would have liked to try and do something to it in PS to make it look a little better
I would be upset too if someone was assuming that I would do things I was uncomfortable with. However, I think you need to tell her. If you just go along with it, she will keep asking.
Yeah, just tell her that it's too hard to take pictures and watch after your children.
I just had this experience at my Dad's wedding. DH tried to take full charge over Nathan, but it was still REALLY hard to take pictures while he was there. He didn't understand why Mommy couldn't play with him or pay as much attention to him as he is used to. It was exhausting!

she's your BFF, just be honest with her about the party. and that's a cute picture of her boy. I totally get that you'd want to do some editing, but really, we're more picky with our photos than "regular" people.

I agree. That's a tough situation to be in, but you should definitely tell her now before it gets worse and she persists more. I'm sure she'll understand!
