Default Flippin' mug shots

No, it's not a euphemism, I'm really talking about flipping mug shots.

One of my clients frequently asks me to flip them horizontally (in a newsletter that contains several mug shots of the writers and contributors) because she doesn't like people to be facing the edge of the page. She wants them to be looking toward the binding, says that's the correct way to orient mug shots, and they should be flipped if necessary.

I have been refusing to do the flippin', though, because it just plain seems wrong. Faces are not symmetrical, and hair would be parted on the wrong side, birthmarks would be relocated, chipped teeth would be moved, etc.

Although I've always won these battles thus far, I'd like to have backup! I have never heard of anyone flipping faces because they're gazing off-page.Has anyone?
