If I could just have one lens for general purpose shooting, it would be the 24-105/4L. I believe there is a non-L version out now that is more affordable and pretty good.

your daughter isn’t me, and if shooting models is really important to her, I’d endorse the need for a fast short telephoto lens. 85/1.8 should fit the bill, though I’ve never used it. I approve the idea of adding a wide angle prime to her kit. I have and like the 28/2.8 IS. The 24/2.8 IS also is supposed to be pretty good. Or possibly just add the 40/2.8 for something compact and inexpensive. Then you could let her buy her own wide angle!
