I can't think of a single suggestion to improve this. Perfect in every way.

Fantastic shot. Lovely model, beautifully lit and a very natural looking pose. This is coming from a hobbyist who doesn't really shoot many portraits.
Now I'll pose a question to you as well as the others here with much more experience than me.
Why do I see many headshots cropped in such a way as some of the model's head is cut off? My technique is pretty basic so I never even think of doing that. I figure to get the whole head in the shot.
I may be answering my own question here, but in your shot, the cropping definitely draws my attention to her face immediately, mainly the triangle including her eyes (great eyes!), nose and mouth. In other shots, sometimes it looks a bit odd to have the top of the model's head cut out of the shot. Many times the intent is lost on me unlike in your shot above.
Anyhow, just trying to learn something here. This forum is great.

The close crop was made famous by Peter Hurley who makes a fantastic living shooting aspiring models and professionals who need high impact headshots. I personally like the technique most of the time but my wife doesn't seem to get it and says that clipping the top of the head is just stupid. To each his own I guess! LOL

Here is another of my niece where I chose to crop more closely to remove another person from the shot. I think it works quite nicely!

Photographers are violent people, first they frame you, then they shoot you and after that they hang you on the wall.

Hi,
Lovely photo ;-)a
Can you tell me how you made the two backgrounds different colours?
Were gels involved?
