Reason: Added EXIF data

It's a shame your eyes are slightly out of focus

Nicole is lovely, but the on camera (I assume) flash doesn't 'model' her features too well, but that's unfair, this was likely a grab shot while your where out (together?) somewhere.
I see from the EXIF, it has already been through PSE 9 and Portrait Professional, although I believe the shot could be further improved by experienced PP (no offence intended), the areas I'd adjust (but don't have the skills myself to demonstrate) are;
IMO a slightly too bright forehead
toning down the shirt colour/brightness and sharpness (that button really attracts attention)
cloning out a couple of irregularities on the rim of her hair against background
That said, it certainly isn't bad now, and I hope Nicole likes it enough for you to get her in front of your camera again, she is fortunate to have very nice facial features.
Hope that helps, Dave
PS I added the EXIF data above as this always helps us give informed advice instead of guessing

you have captured a very nice picture here, well done.
I do agree with some of the points already made, but I think you can made some adjustment in PP to overcome these if you wish. This is how I would have processed it in PP if mine, just to give you my view on things. I will of course remove it from this thread, if I have overstepped the mark.
I look forward to more of your work.

The PP on the second shot is overdone I think.
I would stick to the original, take the light of the forehead and sharpen the eyes a little.
