I'd like a critique, please. I think I need to freshen up my portfolio.

You have an interesting and versatile look. But photos are failing you.
I browsed your port  and must say I am not much fond of these https://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/17082084
https://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/12545727

Your port gives the "amateur model " impression with photos full of awkward poses, looks, and some like those  are https://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130509/14/518c0ef364ca0_m.jpg very tacky( red colored gels should be omitted)
looks in glamor pics leave to be desired  expressions are a bit meh too.
I suggest to work with more advanced photographers.

second best

framing needs work, as you crop in awkward areas.
composition needs a lot of work

I would list this https://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/141006/11/5432e4a876360_m.jpg if it wasn't more contrasty black and white, can probably be photoshopped.

As a beginner model, your port has quite variety.
I don't see anything in your port to put you in front of the line though.
You are naturally beautiful and unique in look however most  commercial fashion applications will probably discount that because they will select more synthetic beautified and processed looks.
Nothing to list at the moment. Your posing is mostly nice smiling girl next door style
you should take some acting lesson and also vary your expressions and specialize in some market provided that you have a good understanding of your limitations, a will to overcome and pounds of perseverance.

First impressions: varied work and artistic tendencies, supported by post work expertly done,
Your Work focus: multi -
Challenges: Staying above the threshold of shallow tackiness
Profile usefulness: informative
Worthy of paid assignments: yes
Your Skill level: fairly advanced
Your creativity: usually shallow, some feels artificial  https://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/141026/10/544d2e9196e12_m.jpg again I would prefer all this without post work support.

What to delete: https://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/130716/19/51e5fb96b9153_m.jpg failure in every aspect of the genre
Suggestions/ Bottom line/verdict: I put you in the "can't be a good model  unless  heavily photo-shopped". Great job though! In your fetish and girl girl scenes you look more as a prop(object)  rather then the subject.
Keep it up. Great job overall.

What to delete: https://www.modelmayhem.com/portfolio/pic/36867907 meh look, awkward / handicapped looking pose
Suggestions/ Bottom line/verdict: On many BW fine art nudes (bodyscapes)  your face is either indistinguishably small or covered with your hair which makes you be "not there" you should show your emotions in your port pics without hiding your face.

I would appreciate you opinion on which, if any, of my photos have merit. 
Thank you!

First impressions: You have too many images that really don't add or diminishes overall value of your port

I didn't have the patience to add more to this list.
Suggestions: Improve the sitting and posing when you shoot amateur models
https://photos.modelmayhem.com/photos/150714/07/55a52104e6d91_m.jpg don't shoot from above that makes look models even shorter then they are.
Watch the ribs sticking out on skinny models, they look pretty ugly. You should leave retouching to pros.
Nothing to list.
