First shoot 1

This first time model was interested in lighting. I only had household lighting available so all the light comes from various LED bulbs in existing fixtures in the rooms I shot in. No editing other than cleaning up a few small spots in the background. Simply because I'm not there yet with software....

Various LED will give you strange Color Values.
I also see problems with Focus and Exposure.
Get some strobes you can also use as hot lights and PS

I think you have a good eye for looking to bodyscapes, which is a favorite of mine (though I'm no pro). I think the first one is the strongest, though I could see cropping the bottom third-ish that is less defined. I think bringing out more details in the third image could strengthen it - it's quite dark as it is. Considering the limited light you had, I think the first one in the particular is quite striking.

I love the idea to use a purple(?) gel for bodyparts.
What I miss are more clearly defined highlights. The first and the third picture may be a little too dark.
