Too many to critique in detail. I very much like the varied angles and the way you're working with both model and background simultaneously. You're not yet handling negative space well, but keep working at it. The shutter speeds here are dangerously low and the ISOs a bit high. Find more light or get a faster lens; the images aren't quite sharp enough for me.

So i should have the shutter higher? I was using AP mode.

To set a faster shutter speed you'll need to either increase the iso or decrease the f stop. Changing the later will affect the composition some what add you'll have a shallower depth of field. Not necessarily a bad thing, I found the background more of a distraction  than a benefit in some of the pictures.

Check your histograms for how well exposed the images are.

Just to add in a different perspective, my girlfriend has worked on the other side of the lens to me, she says from a models point of view, the number of shots from beneath her eye line really emphasises her..... Nostrils! For a models perspective this can make you very self conscious, but she would have been happy with the shoot
