What do you like about my first professional shoot what would you change? It has been about 7 years for me so I am just getting used to the camera again..
Thanks for your time!

I'll take a wild shot that you are talking about images in your portfolio since you did not specifically post any particular images for us to critique. Honestly, in looking at your portfolio I see snap shots (bottom two rows), and a series of photos with extreme foreshorting/odd camera angles (the rest). No offense, but whomever you are shooting with does not take very flattering images. The closest thing that is a decent image in my opinion would be the most recent one, and that is because of your pose in the image.  You are doing just fine as a model for starting out, but I might suggest to find photographers that will not take photos of you from above with your stats. When perspective on the images shifts at this angle, it makes you seem shorter than you actually are (which is not great for a model that is 5'1). I would suggest to keep shooting and look for better photographers to work with. Also, we are only as good as our weakest images, so you may wish to consider pulling the snap shots. good luck

I like all your super hero poses where you pull off bars with your bare hands, hold up a pillar with your butt and sole of your foot, balance a boulder on your shoulder and finally cling and jerk another boulder.

I don't see any professional shots in your portfolio, just lots of very bad snapshots.

Sorry I did not know I was supposed to specifically post the images! I am new to MM and learning. So now I know for next time!
I went ahead and deleted most of my self or family taken snap shots like various have recommended..
I did notice when picking my keepers from this shoot in allot of the pictures my legs looked stubby. It was my first shoot so I am learning about myself and people I work with!
Thanks all for the critique so far! I appreciate it!

I would suggest that the reason your legs look stubby is the high angle and being flat-footed:

The photographer is going to have to choose a lower, more flattering angle. This is something you cannot control. The most you can do is suggest shooting from a lower angle.

Having your toe pointed will elongate and flatter your legs:

I would suggest avoiding having your head leaning so far back as it overemphasizes your neck. Your neck is merging with your sternum and creating an unflattering effect:

Get yourself with a good photographer. He/she can help you pose better.

The photographers idea for the shoot was to show me. So, little to no make-up, no shoes in most pics and not to over pose every picture.. Also I was told to smile which was great for some of the images..
I do see what everyone is saying.. As I personally like the person I worked with, I will suggest to them an angle change next time and we will see what happens!

Seriously I have no idea what images in your portfolio could have come from a professional shoot.
