I ask this young lady for help achieving her look with the editing and she is swamped and does not have time to help me. Could anyone help direct me in achieving this look? I like the deep vivid colors and the clean pristine clarity of the images. I have tried and cannot come no where near this look.

What kind of gear do you have? What is your Post processing software?

Perhaps more Contrast, more Saturation, yet a bit less Vibrance (to keep flesh not too ruddy)
(done in Lightroom)

I shoot with a Canon 60D, and a Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD G2 Lens. I am processing with Lightroom 5 and photoshop CS6

So you're looking for the separation? Shoot at the long end 200mm at 2.8. Looking at some of hers she may cheat and blur the background in post.

No, I know how to do the separation....."deep vivid colors and the clean pristine clarity of the images" The colors in all the images are so deep and pronounced but not over done. There is a richness to every image. I am not worry about blurring the background. Tones are perfect.

Download the NIK tools, they are free and there are filters in the suite that can do that look.

Some of the faces in her photos look unnaturally smooth, which make me suspect quite a bit of post-processing work. Especially if she's upping the clarity to increase micro-contrast: that would mean skin smoothing would need to be done to reduce the effects of clarity on skin.

I am sure the clients didn't care. :)

Not a single parent or senior or family has ever complained of the post processing I have done, and in several of the cases, the clients actually paid me more than what we agreed on at the beginning.

That being said, I would have to guess she was using an imaging set of filters on the images. Nik has some filters that do this, as do other packages, but Nik is free.

Wasn't trying to knock down her work. I was merely pointing out one of the (likely) steps on her post, since the OP wants to achieve the look.

There are sharpener tools and effex 4 has filters. You have play with them to find the combination of settings. Like others mentioned, basic filters like just some USM, surface blur and saturation will get you close I am sure.

In quite some of the pictures you can recognize a tiny halo which points towards this background blurring and darkening.
Additionally, many of the eyes are brightened quite a bit. And certainly, there is quite a push in vibrance, contrast and clarity and turning the black slider down.
Well done.
