I'm new to MM and I guess I would be considered a "curvy" model. I've only had one photo shoot with a recently graduated photographer and would like to know thoughts so far.

I will brace myself for the critique, so please be honest, always the best policy, no point in lying to yourself. :-)

Looking forward to this.

I like the fact that your portfolio includes some full figure and close ups.  You have nice features with good expressions.  Variety is limited, so you need to do some shoots with different looks to fill out your portfolio.  You may want to retread your profile. Nothing wrong in it, but the tone is a lot of what you won't do or limitations.  Comments about husband coming along but not in shooting area make me wonder, just where is he and what is he doing.  Might want to emphasize what you want to do rather than what you don't want to do.

Thank you very much for the advice. I did go through my profile and changed it a bit to give it a more positive tone. I've got a couple of shoots set up over the next few weeks and I'm hoping I made a good decision with types and as well as photograhers, I look forward to adding more work to my portfolio.
