Should I horizontally flip a client's portrait?

I have a corporate client for whom I did a shoot earlier this week. They complained that all the portraits were of the team members facing the same way and they like to do composite images of the team as a group with the half on the left turned to the left and the half on the right turned to the right.

Instead of heading out to shoot again, should I recommend they just flip the necessary portraits horizontally to achieve this? If not, why?

No. It sounds like the client is looking for specific representations of the subjects. Flipping it is no longer an accurate representation. The average human face is not symmetrical
