What do you guys think. Would they be client worthy. Any suggestions to make them better.

The lighting is just completely flat in every case. Learn how to use the light to create more 3-dimensionality - bring out the facial contours using shadows.

And if you shoot her again..ask her to use dark mascara.her eyes just melt into her face. I agree with Bob above about looking somewhat flat though.

Too much saturation on this edit.you can see the purple on her arm.her eyes are so dark now...:(
I like the shooting outside, but just have to find her a BG where it compliments her very fair skin and hair coloring. Anything dark green she is going to pick up in her hair...something neutral perhaps?

Crop the trees out above her head( they were close to being her headwear;)), tonal contrast and GND in the upper area.

Ok so you've already mentioned off camera flash and all i'd say is 'do it!'. Invest in a TTL lead and get that flash working for you. Also, try stepping down a couple of stops. Expose for the background, then use the flash on a reduced power setting to 'fill in' the subject. Finally, on a day like that, I wouldn't use flash at all. A reflector would do the job without any of the harshness! Cheers! Nik.
