Its just a nice portrait of a nice girl, there is nothing to dislike about it.
You have managed really well with this, the exposure, the focus, the lighting, the framing.
Now try and get a little more adventurous.

Her eyes may look just a tad too sharp. I would have whitened her teeth just a little. The exposure and focus look very good. Nice job.

Try backing off a bit on the aperture and sharpening. Too much sharpening is applied. I can see this in her strands of hair jumping out at me too easily and her eye lashes as well.

That along with too much DOF (135mm and f8) As someone else posted, be more adventurous with your portrait. Try less DOF such as f4 though I'm not sure of which lens you used. Maybe you used f8 because your lens is rather soft near wide open.

Portraits usually want to be more soft than sharp - just the nature of them. Softer has a more inviting appeal and sharp instills a harsh initial reaction.

I think it is a simple, yet nice portrait. I would agree about backing off the sharpening, you over did it. As for the teeth whitening, I don't normally do that unless the client asks. Just my opinion.

It looks just a tiny bit overexposed from the neck down. Maybe tweak the color balance a bit, as well. DOF is fine, IMHO.
