I don't want to have my picture taken

Me:  But wait a minute you're  model, right? 
Model: Yes.  but I hate to have my picture taken.
Me:  I'm a little confused here,  this is what you do for a living... do you not like it that much?
Model:  No.  I love modeling I just hate to have my picture taken.   I prefer to create art,  something with meaning not just have my picture taken. 
Me: Ohhh.   Well I certainly understand that.  I don't want to take you're picture either.  Capture your soul maybe . . . but not take your picture. 
Model: Then we agree.
Me:  Yes we are in complete agreement.

There seems to be a consistent debate that I am having about this image.  Is there too much clutter in the photograph so that it distracts the viewer from the form and the woman.   Or does the reflection in the mirror mimic a painting in the frame.   Please comment..
