It's still a lie unless she's invented a time machine and she hopped into it on photo day to grab information from the future. If she has, I suggest we switch to that topic. It's sure to be more important than this one.

So it's possible to lie while telling the truth. That's an interesting thought.
What I've read was this...
She wasn't actually told by her mother to pose like this, yet she told the photographer what she did. Sounds like a lie, looks like a lie... probably was. She didn't plan on her parents actually buying the picture(s). However, because of her 'acts' the parents found it amusing and are probably going to buy the picture(s). So, the latter makes the former a half truth (or half lie; I guess that depends if you are an optimist/pessimist)... the mother is OK with the former, but having not known the future the daughter did originally lie - regardless of the outcome.
Does any of this actually matter? Probably not. Not to the parents or to any of us who have wasted the time reading, following, and posting along. But again, since we all have opinions... it's fun to play along!
However, I've got a bit of work to do today... So, I'll catch back up with you guys/gals later!
