I'm no pro but one thing I would certainly change is your ironing techniques... Or your missus ;)

Photographically you did okay, but there is no communication between the model and the viewer. It just lacks any intimacy or emotion. Try engaging her, getting some expression or communication going.

Could you elaborate a little? Is it her facial expression, pose, a little of both? Etc...

Thanks for the replies (and yes, I'll get out that dreaded ironing board ;) )

Both. in the first shot, she is looking away from the camera, but not necessarily at anything. Its the classic, "I'm not looking at you" look. If she doesnt want to look at the camera, have her look at something, hopefully in the frame, so that something is communicated other than a distant stare. In the second its more of the same. She has a blank look, not quite a frown, but not a smile, and if there is line halfway between its closer to frown than smile. Not every shot needs to be a smile, but you want some emotion going on.

The last is a bit better as she is engaging the camera, but it still has a couple of issues as I see it. The first is that her pose is a bit awkward, her body is turned one way and her head another. To look at the camera her eyes are rolled so totally to one side that you dont see any white on the short side. Ideally you dont want the eyes that far over. And again the smile is forced, almost a smirk.

Get her to relax so there is less tension in her body. Perhaps save some poses from your favorite shots to a gallery on your phone so you can let her emulate them in her own way and then let her interpret them in a way that feels more comfortable. I have to be honest, a lovely lady like her looking into the camera carries a lot of power, and having her looking into nothing looses that.
