Re: Tell me what my portraits lack?

Technically speaking--exposure and focus--these are okay. The only one I like is #4, because the subject appears to be engaged and has a natural expression. Her head tilt bothers me, but otherwise it's a nice image. I don't "do" Instantgramme, but I agree that if you want a specific look for that non-paying site, you need to study what's there.
Sabrina is correct that a 45mm lens (72mm 'equivalent') is short for some of what you are doing.
