I will tell you one bad and good thing I notice about your port. I'm sure I'll give suggestions to improve as well, if possible.

EDIT 11/6: Moving slowly, but moving.

Good:
I've been following your work for quite awhile now. You are a very talented model that always seems to be improving.

Bad:

There is not really anything bad to say about you, to be quite honest.

So, I'll just share the image I think is weakest in your port:

Good:

You are absolutely adorable with a hint of sexy. You have a well-developed and diverse port. You are very good with expressions and posing. It was refreshing to not see much repetition.

Bad:

These don't meet the quality of the rest of the image in your portfolio, they are the weakest(imo). You could definitely do without them:

As I stated above, you are an overload of cuteness. I think that this is also your downfall. You work best at being cute/nerdy cute, but you haven't conquered other looks quite as well. I think you would benefit by trying to successfully rock different styles.

Good:

You are great at glamour/lingerie work. You have the ability to capture the sexiness in a woman.

Bad:

I think you have way to many images in your port. To many mediocre images, and few great images. I would really cut down to a few of your best.

Instead of suggesting the ones to get rid of, I'll suggest the ones you should keep:

Good:
You have a very lovely look, and a beautiful physique!

Bad:
The images in your portfolio are bland, and didn't really catch my attention. Maybe try some more conceptual, or themed work.

Your expressions and posing are weak, and there is not much of variety to be seen. Keep on practicing in front of the mirror, and finding posing/expression inspiration!

Good:

Your black and white nude work is brilliant!

Bad:

When it comes to clothed work, the images are very interesting, but what kills the images are the wardrobes and styling. Hiring or working with some wardrobes stylists/MUA would really help.

Good:

You have the potential to be a good glamour or commercial model.

Bad:

Most of the work in your portfolio is mediocre at best. Some aren't very flattering. This is mostly to blame on the photographer, though some of your posing and expressions are weak and un-confident. Of course I would suggest to keep on working with better photographers who will benefit your portfolio. Practice makes perfect. wink

I would also suggest getting rid of these:

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121028/21/508e0aba830f3_m.jpg

There is another in your port from the same shoot. It is much to similar. I like one with the straight angle better.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/121101/21/5093472a2a422_m.jpg

You look cute, but the pose is weak and unoriginal. Also, the quality of the image is horrendous.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120824/11/5037ca417eaa7_m.jpg

Unflattering.

http://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/120824/11/5037cb29c0bd5_m.jpg

Unflattering. The shadow on your stomach makes you appear a little bigger in that area than you are. The arm cross looks uncomfortable and stiff. And the expression looks forced and nervous. The softness from post processing isn't helping either.

Keep growing!

Good:

Your images are well-done(crop, editing, composition, lighting, etc.)

Bad:

You do well in the technical aspect, but you lack vision. They aren't interesting enough to catch my interest. So, I would suggest trying some more conceptual or themed work.

I really would love to see more nude/topless work in the near future. Those were the images that really did catch my interest in your port, and not just because of the nudity. They were also interesting and well done. I think you could excel and make a lot of progress in the art nude genre.

Good:

The first two images in your port really captured my attention. You would do really well in fantasy themed, and conceptual shoots.

Bad:

There is a lot of repetition in your port. Images from the same set, just different poses. Choose the better one, and throw out the other.

I would keep practicing with your poses and expression. They are a bit weak, but with a few more shoots and practicing in the mirror, I'm sure you will conquer it.
