Nicely posed and processed. The only critique I have is that the shadowed area at the junction of her neck and collarbone needed some fill light. Also her arm in the 3rd shot needed to be moved out a bit from her body as it is it thickens her torso. The other arm needs to be moved backward to get rid of the fold at her shoulder.
There are no banal subjects in photography, but an infinite number of banal ways to illustrate them.

Thank you so much Didereaux. We are planning another shoot - same location except in the early AM instead of in the late afternoon. Hopefully it won't be that windy and I can use your suggestions. It was also the first time I've used high speed sync. Used it on the full length one but not the close up that was a reflector only. Also on the close up I tried something I learned in a Lindsay Adler workshop - it was my 70-200 wide open and then a Christmas ornament on the top right of the lens to create lens flare. I did a bunch of them and some of them the flare was just way TOO much. But I'm learning!

Not a fan of flat hands disappearing behind the head. Bring it forward and arch fingers as in left hand. Elbow towards camera. Bring left hand down to open face more.

I think you mean the shoulder joint be rotated outwards more and down?
Cries out for more space. She looks very serious. Perhaps get her to breathe through her mouth?
Bokeh and setting lovely
These are only nitpics and you may reject them. Enjoyed viewing them.
Kind regards;
