A really nice photo,and the other's you also posted.

if nothing else these pictures bust the myth perpetuated by most amateurs on the internet that portraits need very fast aperture lenses. 

in fact, most portraits' need a decent depth of field.to ensure the subjects face etc (a 3d object) is in focus. Nobody wants a portrait with one eye sharp and the other soft, generally.

I do think with photography of women the quality of their hair and make up contributes a huge amount to the final "look", which I think many viewers attribute to the quality of the camera ("beautiful skin tone" type comments) or the lens.

I assume you used a softbox for some of these to give the fairly soft even light? I also wondered if you had used a snoot or similar as the light appears to have an "edge" at the bottom of the frame - I actually think it detracts very slightly, but is a minor issue in an otherwise lovely photo

As someone who photographs men (actually male physique), it's always interesting to see the difference is approaches to male and female subjects. So much information on the internet is geared towards portraits of women, it can be difficult to get tips on photographing men. General advice for men is to used harder light, and to use "long" light for men (light falling with the "long" side of the face facing it) whereas using "short" light for women.

I think lighting and posing techniques for both sexes would make an interesting article.
