    White balance is a little cool... and I agree with the hair covering the face.

    I'd also have to challange why just a head shot? Wouldn't an full body pose give a casting director a little more of an idea what they are getting into? Just asking... I've never done casting .

    Agree ^^ !! I would definitely re-shoot these. Look for a neutral, non-textured background and make sure she's offset from it by a good distance. If you're submitting a single image, than I would recommend a three-quarter profile, and make sure you use some fill lighting. In all of these the subject's eyes are too dark. Ensure that her hair is neat, and not covering her eyes, she's standing straight, and looks happy but not giggly.

    Get some light into her eyes, she looks almost alien. Especially if this is serious you will need to light her better. Also try to sharpen it a bit, they look in focus just lacking some sharpening.

    Try to get a bit lower to the ground, more at her level. You want to shoot only very slightly down on her, heck maybe even shoot up on her if she has big personality. Just make sure not to get nostrils.

    My daughters did some commercial acting. She's beautiful, but my advice to you is to get the hair out of her face and try to really focus on her eyes.

    ok here is a new one. They want to see her hair all down and not pulled up and just the way it naturally looks down. So there isn't much I can do with her hair. They don't want any make up, they just want the naturual child. Thank so much for the advice guys!

    I'd do the first shot you originally posted only with hair pulled back away from her eyes and make sure the camera is focused on her eyes.
