As you coach I only have one warning for you. Remember that sensitive issues are still always a weak point. No matter how good your release is if you sell the image and it’s used to feature homelessness, spousal abuse, or addiction you can still get in trouble. As with everything treat this like you would want to be treated and you should be fine.
