Hello All,
Have been working on portfolio for only a few months and I realize I need to diversify. Any advice is appreciated as to what photos I should include or delete.  I am hoping to add more fashion/editorial photos soon.
Thank you!

You're a lovely women, Paige, but it won't matter if you diversify with other genres if you don't diversify that expression. It's the same semi-toothy expression in every image.

Thank you--I'm trying to work on this.  I find getting a natural/relaxed look in the mouth area is the most challenging for me! Although the first pic you mentioned is a full-on smile smile

To add to the above advice I think you should also work on your eyes smile There's different expressions you can do with them, even "smiling" with them without smiling with your lips. Maybe practicing in front of the mirror? Or try to mimic the expressions of other models from magazines or any that inspire you, try to do the same facial expression and take a picture of yourself or just in front of the mirror. That  could give you a lot of practice and a way to find what expressions are flattering for you in front of the camera. You're very lovely, I'm sure with practice and time you'll be able to get your portfolio to a higher level!
