[[[As Written]]]
I would like to some photo shoots for some Christian prints if at all possible.

Since you are both model and photographer some comments
Use a tripod
Think sharp in focus eyes
You seem to have a pleasant look
Might darken eye brows so they show up more

Please produce some remarkable images for your portfolio

Wish you well

Thank you so much!
I went Beauty School so I could do an eye brown tint myself which I have had before and it does look better that way!

The Effective Image

Your images show a lot of forehead... and your hair seems a bit lifeless.

Maybe a different hairdo which would sweep across your forehead, or bangs...

I'd talk to a GOOD hairstylist, I don't think the part in the middle is working great for you.

Just my opinion.

What you need to work on:
Make up and hair, oddly enough. You need some volume to the hair. My hair falls limp too. Blow dry it, wash it, and if you have to, maybe consider extensions to give it some extra fullness. Make up: In most of your pictures I don't see any make up at all. Then in the few you have it, it is slathered in the wrong shade. Tone it down. My recommendation is to hit up a sephora or a bare minerals, have them match a shade. Start working on foundation that doesn't look like foundation. And you are blonde, very so. I am that way myself. Which means light eyebrows and light eyelashes. This means you NEED mascara and eyebrow pencil for most looks. Part of being a model is looking the part, and it takes some extra work.
Once you work on this, work on posing and expressions. Less forced, less of that crazzyyy eye going on. And relaxed. More natural. You have an interesting bone structure, and you are skinny enough to work it. Now the details need to come together.

Yea your right I have a bigger forehead than I wish I had, but I bet I could find someone to cut it well with bangs!


If there is anything that you would think that would make my port sound/look better please let me know!


Thank you!

I dont see anything to differentiate this as a model portfolio from a facebook folder.

She doesn't mean that. She means they look like crappy facebook quality pictures, and is saying you need professional pictures.

Until you get some professional shots taken, drop the number of images in your port to the minimum (i.e., four).

Keep an image of your head and shoulders, a full length shot and two others. Your eyes should be razor sharp in each.

This will actually strengthen your port for now.

Use MM browse function to find yourself a local photographer to do TF work with, but be prepared to pay for images to get lift your port away from its' basic level.

Modelling is hard work, with a lot of time and (often) financial investment at the start.

Good luck.

Just did a MM search for photographers in Fort Smith Arkansas and there are 44 to choose from. Here are the ones from the 44 that seem to have portfolios that should benefit you. I am not recommending them other than having done an inspection of the photos in there portfolios and liking the work they are showing

Wish you great success!

You need to collaborate with a MUA and very experienced Photographer to extract the best you can achieve.

I see a bunch of cell phone pics that don't show any talent or effort. I suggest you find a way to work with a decent photographer and get some professional looking images.

I agree that you should remove anything that's unnecessary. Take it down to 4 images.

Have you cleared things up with your boyfriend?
