A friend asked me to take some headshots for her. This was my first time trying it; I'm normally a sports shooter. Since I'm relatively new I really appreciate any constructive advice I can get! Right now I'd appreciate advice on how to approach PP. I shot in RAW so there's plenty of leeway for adjustments.

This one is by far my favorite, I love her expression. But since it's horizontal I'm not too sure how acceptable it would be as a headshot.

i think they all look great. the only thing i would recommend is cleaning up that 1 minor skin imperfection

Thanks guys! I just met with her to go over the results and we both agree that #4 is the cream of the crop. I'll definitely take care of the skin imperfections, these were rough edits that I posted before meeting with her.

Any advice as far as pp is still very welcome!

Nice shots.. i like #4 best too, but find the flowers in the BG kind of distracting.. they match her top.
