Basically I can see 9 photos in your portfolio. Most of them follow the rules of composition, which means that you do have knowledge of the subject. What you need to improve IMHO is the way you see the light. Shadows are not your enemy. They will give depth and drama to your photos, like the bouquet photo and the one with the girl on the bridge. The rest although good photos lack that extra impact.
From what I see, I would not classify you as a Fautox! (Look up: “Monte Zuckers Portrait Photography Handbook“. He was one the best and an inspiration to many of us)
Hope this helps.
