It's a lot better start then most. Wouldn't kill you to break out in a big smile once in awhile.

You seem to have a good mix of studio vs on location shots ... different clothing styles, poses and many other things, too.  I don't see anything that *needs* to be added (there isn't anything really important missing).

  If you absolutely *must* have something to add, I'd say nature ... when things turn green again outdoors.  Maybe a car or motorcycle, too.  As I said, though, nothing is missing IMO.

You are a great looking young lady. The issue is that you need someone better to shoot you!...The poses and your look aren't bad but you don't want to look like plastic and you don't want to look untouched either. So the quality to some degree is on your level of taste and creativity and experience. You live and learn. This isn't the worst but it could be better! You gotta want this to be good at it and you have to devote more time and respect for your future!...Invest in it!...time, money and your love for it....passion doesn't end at the threshold...you gotta pass that and think big...be realistic but think big....

Keep it going. Not a bad start!

Thank you for being specific, Maybe an outdoor nature shot is a great idea

I have to agree with the smile comment, a smile can add so much personality.  Nice variety.  Great start!  Thanks for encouraging us to stop by and look.

Agreed.  I'd also suggest trying to make use of a MUA/hair stylist/stylist as much as possible.  Don't be afraid to take the initiative in setting up a team for trade shoots.

I think you are quite pretty.  You look taller than the height you state in your profile.
As far as smiling goes I'm guessing you have braces right now and you might be a bit conscious about them.

The photos could be better.  I think many are smoothed out too much.  Your skin starts to look like plastic.

Also the makeup is sometimes overdone.  Your lips seem to be naturally full.  No need to exaggerate their fullness.

Just my neophyte opinion. smile

I like your look.  As well as this page, I am also a body painter, and I would be seriously consider doing a body painting with you. 

But if I was looking through you port I would have to look beyond certain problems.  Too many photos are over photoshopped, your eyes are unnaturally white, yet I see many flyaway hairs and striking visible small hairs along your hairline that are very distracting.

A greater variety of photographers in your port would help.

Avoid using images that are overprocessed to the point you look plastic. You've got several.

This one has replaced your fingers with something cartoonish. I'm not sure what was wrong with the original image, but that looks terrible.

You're very pretty and you've got a wonderful body. You're young enough that you could easily pull off fun teen looks, which would make your braces not only make sense but also look damned cute.
