Generally a good shot. You have managed to get a nice soft light outside. Its sharp with the background nicely out of focus, well exposed and is a happy smiley kind of shot. Nice catchlights, did you use a reflector?

My comments for possible improvement would be, I would Give her a bit more space to breathe on the left, its cropped a bit tight, I also might have cropped some of the hat off to bring her eyes further up the picture to give them more importance.Also I am finding the hat is rather dominating the picture somewhat. The tree I find a bit distracting and as she is not leaning against it as far as we can see, it seems unnecessary and doesn't add to the shot.
One problem with the pose, making her look up like that has shown up all the wrinkles on her forehead and has probably aged her a few years. Smile
She looks American and I know they have very white teeth, but she also has unnaturally white eyes, in my view a lighter touch is needed if you want to whiten eyes. She is also quite dark around the eyes which accentuates the whitening. I think I would have tried to light up around the eyes a bit more maybe with some fill in flash.
