This shot could have been helped by turning her a bit more but as shot I think she would appreciate use of the liquify tool on the hip. ;)

Liquify is great, but after watching Sue bryce use the warp tool, its so much easier and faster. :)

Make a selection, copy all layers and paste, transform - warp, and bend how you like. then use a layer mask to blend in the edges. :)

I think these are good for a first try, but don't start charging people yet. Here are a few pointers. GET YOUR CAMERA OFF OF FULL AUTO.

Go look at these again and zoom in... look close at the focus especially the eyes.. notice the eyes are not as clear and sharp at other photos in this thread?

I would advise you to learn how to choose a single cross type focal point and learn what focus and recompose means.

Exposure... Look it up.. learn how to expose for the skin. Full auto mode will just do an over all exposure which will often leave you subject looking too dark.

After you figure out that stuff, buy a Speedlight and a long ettl cord put the flash on a stand and set if 3 feet to you side ... go back to the same places and try again. You NEED to get some light in her eyes. You'll get this figured out! you can do it :)

Most of your posing is ok except for

#2 would have been better if she had been turned just a bit more so her feet aren't growing ou the side of her head.

#4 straight on is not normally a flattering angle for women.. look how wide her shoulders look.

Take a little time and look over female poses in this thread.. there are some good ones here and lots of talented photographers to point you in the right direction. (I know they sure have helped me :)

She is underexposed in the first shot. I'm not a big fan of that pose, but it would be helped by having her properly lit. In the second the spotty light kills it. Both of these seem like more of an artistic portrait attempt rather than a senior portrait.

Ditto for me, and I really would never make a girl's armpit a focal point of an image.

I don't mind the spotty lighting so much, for an artistic effect. Have to agree about the pits though.

Try colorado timberline too. They have the same faux floor and wrinkle free stuff and can print from your own images....and supposedly are way cheap.

The images looked a litte soft from my monitor (may be it needs fixed :p); the 1st one is underexposed, and the second one has some hot spots and is not a very attractive image because of her arm pit. Senior photo should show the beauty of their faces first and foremost, and I do not feel either images accomplished that.
