You have a great look, and yes for agency standards they will want you to lose a few lbs.
you're natural, height, face, proportions but that's not magic when it comes to modeling
You really need to step up your game PRACTICE! You're lacking in facial expressions and posing ability, I would practice in front of a mirror and study fashion magazines, and work with better photographers ... Even pay them to make sure you get some quality images!
Best of luck

As a model you have a good look, but some of your work is not up to the level one would hope.

At 5’ 10” and 125 pounds you could use some toning, but you are so close any agency that wanted to work with you would probably do so.
So dazzle them with positive attitude and quality images that rock their socks off
Wish you well

Rotate head to models right for true profile

Would love to see big sparkling catch lights in your eyes, will give them life

This is a fun pose
[My preference not to look up models nose although]

Model wise; love the life you portray in this image
[Think long sweet fingers]

For now this is ok for your portfolio as it does show your beauty

Many photos were not selected due to photography

You have a great look and would expect you to be working in commercial at this time
