Fill light would have really helped with these shots.

These can be fixed in post by adding a Shadow/Highlights adjustment layer and inverting the lighting but ideally you should have used some fill light.

Definitely need some fill. If you can get a flash off camera use it to expose the face use it.

What I do is set the camera to expose the background properly than use reflectors and off camera flashes to expose the subject. If you do it properly you can get a very nice exposure throughout the entire photo.

shadow/ highlights and curves will fix the two photos you have now but don't rely on photoshop to fix your poor lighting. You will always get a better end result by taking the photo correctly in the first place.

Well since you've posted more of her, I'll comment.

These show the girl's face being too dark in all 4 shots you've posted. Most time you have bright backgrounds and you didn't use a fill flash which leaves her face darker. She might have been tanned, but her face still shows up too dark. These 2 examples are quite dark and I wouldn't suggest they be used for senior portraits. For good portraits you really must understand and control your lighting. The face is the most important part of a portrait and it must be properly exposed for.

Fill flash would have made for a great image with #2.

I agree...fill flash. Also, I feel like her face looks soft, almost OOF or pixelated. Maybe it's the darkness.

If properly lit, I think these are wonderful!
