Clearly I can improve - I have not been modelling long (therefore I am not looking for the negative aspects of my pictures). Let me know what you think! Thanks! I will try to comment on yours as well.

If you're not willing to hear about the negatives, you're not willing to learn and to improve. It's then all about egoboost.

You're pretty. You have a nice body and pretty hair.

Right now the large portion of your photos look pretty much the same style and genre. Which is ok to start, so no big probs there. Things you probably need:

bikini
lingerie (high fashion and/or artistic)
different facial expressions
lifestyle---with friends and with a male model

have fun and learn. Welcome to MM. Enjoy the ride!

Work on expanding your range of expressions. Your images all employ the same lack of emotion. The quality of imagery is consistently good and you're pretty, but the images are bereft of emotion or personality.

I think you've got a beautiful face and amazing hair and great potential but at the moment it looks like you need to experiment more. Your collection of ideas (Lists) show a lot of danger while your portfolio shows a lot of "safe" poses. I know you are just starting out and don't have a ton of shots to choose from and I'm not talking about nudity. It looks like you need to take a few more risks with your poses to try and engage the viewer. The people in the pictures in your ideas list are demanding that you look at them.

I really like the shot of you on the boardwalk in between the buildings and in the pink dress on the stairs. The shots of you in the pink lingerie and bending down to adjust your shoe are great poses but need a better photographer or retoucher. The shot in front of the pipes looks good too.

I think you'll do great if you keep at it.  smile
