Can anyone help me?  I feel as though my portfolio lacks focus.  Any thoughts on what area or style I should focus on will be greatly appreciated.  I enjoy all forms of modeling but feel I'd be better off focusing on one or two.

Nikki - you look beautiful and elegant in all your shots.

Not sure I understand about your 'focus? Your profile says Paid Assignments Only - so surely the choice is the photographers?

Thank you.
I am always hopeful for paid assignments, but most of these have been TFP to keep me "in the game".  Therefore, I am wondering if there is a style I should focus on to get the paid assignments.  I am signed with several local agents but not a lot happening now.

Your profile is full of negatives and bad vibes.  Why should I hire you to get a lot of bad attitude?  Get that stuff out of your profile and save it for a photographer who approaches you in a way you don't like.  Your profile should entice me to want to hire you.  I never even bothered to look at your photos.

In looking at your port and due to your stats I might suggest trying a more commercial/lifestyle route. Most will not hire you for fashion, but in the commercial world things like height don't matter as much. In your area, Rocky Gonet is a great photographer that I see that you have worked with. You might also look up Mary Duprie who is worth her weight in gold as a very talented commercial photographer.

Aside from that, I would suggest to re-word your profile to a more professional verbiage. Right now it reads all over the place and could easily turn away work. good luck!
