    Welcome to the forums, lusjana.

    No - it's not correct. Perhaps you mean

    'Can you take my photo, please?'

    'Can you take a photo of/for me, please?'

    Or even - given that the context makes 'picture' unambiguous, and the subject too - 'Can you take a picture, please?' Or even just offer the camera and say 'Could you...?'
