My take is on the rendition side as this example and

suggestion show… on a low-res jpg.

 

WB tweak, straighten and minor cosmetic touch-ups:

What the customer wants does matter, but...

 

Once you have taken the images and gotten the customer's guidance, you still need to edit the images as appropriate.  The customer doesn't need to be involved in the editing process.  Even if they are, leveling the horizon and a few other quick changes are normal steps in the editing process that should occur to any image.  You also have a few images where the subject(s) feet are cut off or they are not centered which make the image look more like a snap shot than a photograph.  I would be willing to bet that the customer would not have an issue with the improvements that can be done quickly and easily.  Either way, I would likely still edit the image the way I think it should be done so they see the difference.

I have a problem with the backgrounds.... I know, you probably didn't have a lot of choice here but looking at the photos taken in front of the diamond plate wall made me wonder if there were a large enough section of that to use rather than the plain wall. At least for single person images. 

 

As far as what the person in the image wants.... my reply has always been, "You want the pictures to look good, or what? Your choice."

not enough since if was more to left you see huge area where trash bin is at. and only have small section of it. she friend of mine and when she let me takes pictures of her has to be way she wants them and where she wants them. so she picks out pictures we took and pick one she like and will edit way she likes. not paid work but friend letting use her to learn how shoot portraits shots. she does not like shadows on body.

If she has offered to be a model to help you learn, have her sign a release - there are several free phone apps that provide this.  In addition, you can offer her the opportunity to select one and edit it FOR HER the way she would like.  You are then free to use that and other images the way you want.  You won't learn if you have no say in what happens...

all ones i posted where one she want and way she wanted done. i love her to death and will help when she needs it. but jay and i know she to hard to please. so we go with what she wants leave it. but glad she lets do it at times. once i get better and will put my foot down. and be little harder on things. since glad she lets learn from her. i wish i knew more people that would let me use them to learn how to be better portraits shooter. but people i know that are models or where models. very picky on how they want things done.

If you absolutely have to do things her way then there's really no point in asking for a critique. She's the one deciding how the photo will look. You're basically giving up any say in the project, and it looks like things will never progress beyond what we see here. It's a shame too... I think she has potential.
