Hello all, I would really appreciate some feedback on my portfolio, potential, etc. If you have any suggestions as far as what types of shoots I should do or photos I should delete feel free to share! Thank you!

Overall fairly nice, but what's with the "black eyes" look?
To me, it looks creepy without any artistic merit at all. Get rid of those shots.

Also, practice your facial expressions. Some EXTREMELY experienced models here have worked years and EVERY single shot with a deadpan, expressionless face (like a dead fish). What a waste of years of work.
Please don't go that way.

5’ 10” Go see an agency!

Something to think about when selecting photos for use in your portfolio would be make sure your eyes are sharp, a wrinkled background generally comes across poorly, one or a maximum of two images per look

Of the images you have this one does show you, but don’t hide your face, hair a bit fly away, fingernails look chipped

Would love to see you add a quality color headshot

Those shots by the Loren photographer need to be tossed.  Your beauty shot by Clark is really really nice.  You really just need to find a really good photographer who will do some TFP shoots with you.  If you come to Chicago, look me up.
