Profile pics on Clients. Also a profile completion step on the other end?

It would be really nice if clients were also asked to use profile pictures. Sometimes, as a designer, a picture can say a 1,000 words. Style references that you would use on a young startup founder aren't those of a senior executive undertaking a personal project. This is not the first time I have missed this feature. It can also help us screen serious from fake, which also happens in our end (a lot). Is this something that we can look forward to?

Maria,

Clients can sometimes be large corporations.  There may be a person who was involved in sourcing talent  and conducting interview. But the other person would be involved in hiring and closing contracts. 

So adding face may be misleading if you wanted to rely on it.

No ... this is not something that needs to be implemented. Many of my clients are one of many in a company and not an individual. It would serve no useful purpose. Learn to recognize and vet your clients, and it shouldn't matter what they look like.
