Unhappy [Q] Trying to restore photos from a broken S4 (AT&T), how do I go about it?

My friend broke her S4's screen, and wants to get back the photos from the internal memory. The phone does not have USB debugging turned on, so having it attached to the computer only charges it. The phone does show up in Kies and is asking for me to unlock it. I do have the pin code, but as the screen is dead, and I cannot put it in. ADB devices, and FastBoot devices do not show the phone at all. Fastboot Reboot-recovery does not do anything either.

How can I go about restoring these photos from the internal memory. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!

So I got the phone in recovery, but it is listed as unauthorized in ADB.

As the screen is dead, I can't allow usb debugging in the OS.

Is there a way to skip this??
