Thank you very much, Joni.  Although the reference is a rather straightforward and unimaginative pose, I was attracted not only by her lovely face and smile but also by the details that you mentioned.
I certainly like drawing people (especially children and girls!) of different ethnicities because of their varied facial characteristics.

Thank you very much, Frank.  The reflections in her eyes are certainly very strong.  Obviously the photographer was in the sun and the girl in the shadow which meant that there were unfortunately no strong shadows on her face to indicate form.
