So my cousin asked me to snap a few pics of her and although portrait is not my 'area', I agreed.
It was a cloudy day, with the sun showing up for one photo or another.
Here are the results. C&C appreciated, as I'm kinda new to portrait work. All natural light.

I think these look nice. My thoughts...it doesn't look like her face is in focus in #2 and the vignetting is a bit heavy for my taste on #3. Also (I know this is really nit-picky, but here goes...) it looks like her shoe is untied on #4.

They're all very nice, #4 is my favourite :-)
I agree with Rob, that the focus on #2 is a little of.

I'm impressed by how happy she appears to be in these series of images. It is a very nice set that captures her well and very naturally so.

Good job overall! #3 of the second set needs some basic retouching to eliminate the blemishes on her face.
