I wouldn't say so. You're a cute girl, but I can't see anything very special at this point.

Yes, to an extent. You have the right face, I would just like a bit more expression. Of course, I am basing this off of a mere 15 photos so of course I'm not going to get all of you. Huge potential.

You have the look. You have height and the build. You have camera presence. You pose well. And just as important as anything else (but much more rare), you give quality expressions time after time after time. That would be a yes.

I would say yes based on your avatar. However, once I looked at your port I was alittle disappointed (unfortunately)

You have some great pics and others...not so much. I believe you do have the "it" factor as long as you keep shooting and improving smile

Good look, bad shots. You probably need to get some professional shots done. The ones you have now are poorly photo-shopped. If you took them to an agency or a photographer, they'd probably laugh at you. You have potential, but again, poor quality shots.

These two are my favourite in your port thus far, you have an eye for detail and i like the fact you seem to go into a shoot with a plan...well done

No, because of photoshopped backgrounds and almost only showing the models back. It looks more like adult work.

For 6 months you show potential but need to work more on lighting technique and composition.  Get away from distracting backgrounds.

Not entirely sure, has a lot of personality shining through, which is a really good thing, just not sure it comes out the right way.

For mainstream modeling your images suggest fashion but your stats put you in a commercial market.  But I'm not certain you have a very commercial look.  Maybe so, with some smiling shots with your hair down.  You're very expressive and would do well as a photographer's muse.

Maybe just does not reach you the way it reaches someone who shoots a similar style to me?
