It's hard to just look at these and give an opinion on what you need help on. You have a beautful smile. More experience in front of the camera with additional photographers will help get you that experience.

Try not to lock your arms and feel more inside when posing or when directed into a pose. The brown shirt I think you just needed to turn more towards the camera instead of a profile body shot. Don't just stick your hand and hold it when placing your hand through the hair type posing. You have to feel it and act it. It will look to posed otherwise.

The outfit in number 1 with the fall background doesn't work so pay attention to fashion vs the scene. You have summer clothes and it looks like an early spring or late fall season.

Look at magazines, copy poses that work, crank up the music and pretend the mirror is the camera and practice. The best way to learn to pose.....

JT is the man, so listen to him for sure. And I second the part about your smile. For some reason lots of models think they need to look serious all the time. You've got a great smile... use it. You're off to a good start, and I look forward to seeing more from you.

The best advice given:

"Look at magazines, copy poses that work, crank up the music and pretend the mirror is the camera and practice. The best way to learn to pose....."

To me it is the small things that make a break a picture.

Of the things you can control;
On picture #1 - I wonder where your fourth finger is?
On picture #2 - You seem to be missing the ends of your fingers, the bow tied behind your back should either show more or not at all.
On picture # 3 (white skirt) - Your wrist and your left knee joints are locked into awkward positions.

The photographer should do some changing with the window rails on picture #2, and there seems to be an attennae on the right side of the pic with the white skirt.

hiya and what a lovely head of hair!! i looked at all fotos and the only one i really had a problem with was the third foto with the tiny orange shirt inset. your left arm looks especially wakward and i wondered if someone whaCked ya with a stick to get it in that position. the photog shouldve seen it but wot da heck.

relax, be natural and drop your chin a little. practice in front of a mirror.

keep ur back straight. stand straight. if you sit, keep the leg closest to camera lower than the farther leg (some photogs however, dont care).

lastly, don't cut that hair...

take care huGs and stay safe!!
