The difficult nose

Hi all,
My next shoot will be with a person that specifically commented on her nose. She does not like how it comes out on the pictures. As she said it is rather big than usual. From my point is larger than the average and a bit more curved at the end giving easier the illusion that is bigger of what it really is (it creates easier shadows).

What would you do during shooting to mitigate the problem? Shooting at 200mm with light hitting straight from slightly above to reduce any shadows is what I am thinking. ARe there any suggestions from your side?

    Speaking as some with a large nose, have her look more directly into the camera. This will minimize the nose profile. Also, looking slightly downward helps. Keep away from the half face and three-quarter face profiles. More than about 30% profile will emphasize the nose too much.

    Just my $0.02 worth.
