this narrative has commercial worth/value...
maybe more like this?

the question you must ask yourself is who are your clients?
would be wise to let this determine the mix in your book...

all the best on your journey...

This seems like a very odd composition having a blank canvass except for a plant/tree right behind the model.  I think the shot would be stronger without the tree or with it off to one side or the other.

I like the way you have captured her freckles and hair colour here.  Perhaps add a touch of light on the backdrop to soften the contrast?

I like this one - great natural expression from the model and pleasing composition.  The contrast seems a little low in this one though - is that intentional?

This is very good too.  Nice lighting to flatter the model.  Not so sure about the bright blue nails and white necklace though.

The hair/accent light is well done here and it gives a very clean, natural result.   Consider reducing the fill light a little to darken shadows and emphasize structure.

I would recommend less props (guitars, flowers, necklaces, chains) to let the focus really be on the model themselves, but that's a personal preference of mine. 

Having said that, I think the guitar works well in this shot:

I hope that's helpful.
