The end of the tunnel on the top shot is the brightest spot of the entire image... My eye is drawn there and she doesn't seem to be the focal point to me considering that she blends into the environment.

Can't dispute that point, lol. I tried a couple of "edits" to subdue the light at the end of the tunnel, but it seemed to "take-away" more than it helped, IMO. I'll def be shooting there again, and what we learned from this first session should help.

Here's my video from my shoot with Olivia and Laura. I think I'm going to go with a tripod for the video with my 6D II from now on as this was pretty jerky even with a monopod that the girls parents were holding.

Nicely done! I shoot my video on a gimbal using my iPhone 7 Plus and place that on a tripod. This allows me to also just grab it and get some following shots (if I can), get overhead video, mock-crane movement and turn it upside down by flipping the center column for lower shots if desired.

That's nice, you have any pictures of your set up for that? Just now trying to even figure out what a gimbal is. I'm just starting to play with the video some.

Like the pics except, for my tastes, it appears to be just a little too hot (too much flash), especially on the face.

Thanks! I have the Zhiyun Smooth 4 and use an iPhone 7 Plus. Unfortunately I don’t have photo of me using it, or alone on the stand, but here it is in the case I made for it and the second was during a senior shoot.

Here in Pa, seniors love location photos. My advice is to go for visual impact with the setting and composition, but make the pose and expression believable.
