CYDEX!A does not share or distribute any images from privately comissioned photosessions in any medium or form. Your privacy is important to us and we do our best to protect it. Only our small trusted staff has access to the images. The images you see in our gallery and social media are published with express permission. Due to strong desire of most private clients to keep the images for their eyes only, most of our published images are of models. However, we have served hundreds of clients of any age, from 19 to 70!
