I really like the lighting and colorand overall pose/perspective in this one. I've seen shots like this and they're usually converted to BW, but you did a fantastic job of desaturating and diffusing.

The only thing that bothers meis her hands.They seem somewhat perfunctory and unnatural, like "I-have-to-cover-up-my-nipples-now". Coupled with her off camera glance it reads, "Is this right? Am I doing it ok?"

I'm wondering if her arms were more in a self-hug or one draped over her chest it would still accomplish the task but look more natural.

Of course this is very minor tweaking, I am positive the client will absolutely love what you've done for her! So beautiful and priceless.

Thanks Lynn.......I see what you are talking about. I was just so happy that she was allowing me to take some pretty funky pictures of her. I had done some shots like this with another client and she won't allow me to use the shots on my website( even though I could have because I have a signed model release, but I didn't want to burn my bridges). This girl however said go ahead!!

Here are a couple more.......
