Moderator Note!
HMS is not for Critique - there is a separate forum for that. However, a General Conversion as to what constitutes a strong portfolio is encouraged.

Portfolios should reflect the Kind and Quality of Work that Clients hire for in the market you wish to be in.

Brittany, we really aren't allowed to Critique in this Forum...

Please post your query in the Critique Forum

Might keep in mind it is typically wise to target your specific client base...
Carefully consider if your revenue stream comes from commercial work (print/video/film) or retail clients i.e. events such as weddings, Bat Mitzvahs, sweet sixteen, proms, etc 

These markets differ greatly and thus marketing materials should be focus accordingly...

Hope this helps...

Edit: Thanks Lisa smile
