Shots look amazing, nothing I would do really, maybe try some different compositions and angles. How about one with a natural smile or reaction? Something more intimate with the camera. But great shots I'd be happy with that result!
Move along nothing to see here!

They are very nice.  Quite well done.  If anything, I'd like to see her eyes pop just a bit...  but you did notate them as "simple", so I suppose they are perfect the way they are...  With all the white & highlights I think that adding a little something to her eyes would just really draw me in... 

Nice job! ;)

Thanks for your advice! I'll keep that in mind for the next shoot.

Yes, I should've perhaps taken some "spontaneous outburst" shots.. Will keep it in mind for next time.. Thanks for the pointer!

Absolutely marvellous shots, however, the last three lack 'sharpness', in my opinion.  Was this intentional or am I seeing something which is not there?  But, again, great shots and you are right, simple, yet outstanding.

Hi thanks for the feedback. If 100% viewed, I find the sharpness fine for these 3. Maybe you are referring to low contrast? Or perhaps because of the shallow DOF?
