All shown here are very nice, I am sure she and her family will be thrilled.

The only one that doesn't do anything for me is (3). She is too dark compared to the busy background.

Other than that, the ones here display the same smile throughout. Hopefully you varied her expression in the rest of the set

good shots here. subject is focused well, most shots have nice lighting on subject. Overall a nice result and she likely is very happy to have quality photos of her.

The biggest thing i notice is distraction in your backgrounds as they take away from your subject. Its just as important, and sometimes more important than subject, especially to make subject pop.

Here is what I would change to make your images stronger (almost all background related):
#1- the sunlight just below her right arm is distracting and competes with subject. maybe fix in processing or re-compose when shooting

#2-the hot sunlight on ground in background is distracting. I am not thrilled with the squatted pose. A Sitting pose I think would work better here.

#3-background is too busy with school building? and then grass areas with sun and shadows then more sun and shadows. too busy

#4- I think your best shot of the bunch! but tone down the hot background where its too bright and she will pop

#5- Again the background and this time right behind her. Not only distracting but takes away from her. She is a beautiful girl. Even a slight move in your position to get a clean background would do wonder for this shot.

Hope this helps.

Thank you both for the feedback. Good point on more variations in expressions. Since you both mentioned the background is too bright in #3, I darkened it some. Is this enough? Should I darken the background more in relation and lighten the whole thing more?

Good set. I agree on #3, even the rework the grass background is bright. She needs more light on her. In #1 that is poison ivy on her!!. I hope she did get it on her skin..

#4 and #5 are the best for me. Love the track shot as that really gives a good feeling for her individuality. #1 and #2 seem more mannered and traditional in comparison. Even that smile looks clear and natural in #5. Love the color of the track and her hair falls nicely if a bit disheveled (natural for a track shot, perhaps). Her gaze in #4 is excellent: strong and clear. The dark top framed by the lighter wall looks great and her hair has a nice deep gold to it.

its not the brightness of the background....its too busy. If you still want to go with this shot try a vignette or blur the background
