This seems like a very odd composition having a blank canvass except for a plant/tree right behind the model. I think the shot would be stronger without the tree or with it off to one side or the other.
I like the way you have captured her freckles and hair colour here. Perhaps add a touch of light on the backdrop to soften the contrast?
I like this one - great natural expression from the model and pleasing composition. The contrast seems a little low in this one though - is that intentional?
This is very good too. Nice lighting to flatter the model. Not so sure about the bright blue nails and white necklace though.
The hair/accent light is well done here and it gives a very clean, natural result. Consider reducing the fill light a little to darken shadows and emphasize structure.
I would recommend less props (guitars, flowers, necklaces, chains) to let the focus really be on the model themselves, but that's a personal preference of mine.
Having said that, I think the guitar works well in this shot:
I hope that's helpful.
