It is, except when it isn't

I always tell the signers they can either have a copy of their ID ready for me (when it's required to be returned), or I can take a picture to print out and send with the package. I immediately delete it afterward (about a decade ago when Google Drive was newer, my phone uploaded several IDs into my public photo folder without telling me. I caught it right away so no harm done, but since then, I don't wait a second longer than I have to.)

HOWEVER, I do occasionally see in title instructions that I as the notary am explicitly forbidden from using a phone to take any images. I respect the policy if it's stated, and leave it up to the signers otherwise.
