Hi,
I just recently started becoming more serious about modeling and was wondering if any of you could tell me if there is anything I should improve on?

Thank you! That's one of my favorites and came from my very first shoot I had

For just starting out, you have a good base of work.  I'd try and get more full body shots in, the one you have is great, just more for variety.  Also, you have a nice expression, but a little neutral, so maybe work with that?  But by and large I'd say just shoot more and build on what you have.  You shouldn't have trouble finding people to work with you...

Your images all have basically the same expression. Modeling is acting with no lines to memorize. You have to covey an emotion (whatever it is...) using your facial expression and body language. Pick some common emotions, and practice conveying them using just expression and body language. It should be subtle though, you don't want to go overboard. Master conveying a few emotions and you'll get more work.

Just my opinion.

Your face is beautiful, so focus on your angles and figure out your best ones, etc.

All your photos you seem to be looking over your shoulder. I would suggest to branch off from that a bit. smile

Try playing with certain facial expressions. I know for myself, it's difficult for me to find the right "omph" to look angry, but other feelings I seem to be ok with. Try shooting in a genre you wouldn't normally find yourself in, see if you like it (horror, punk, rock star, fantasy, etc...).  You have really nice legs, try getting more photos in that show them off :3

You have indicated you want to be more professional.
So, my first suggestion in accomplishing that is dropping the childish dependency on an escort. Professionals don't do that.
