I would avoid practicing exposure in dappled light. It's a nightmare to get correct - either the whites will blow or be close to blown, or the darks will take over.

If you spot meter off her skin, she'll be exposed correctly if the light isn't dappled on HER, but then you have to decide what to do about the surroundings. #6 is a good example of hot whites and clipped blacks.

You did GREAT with the ones in full on sun though! Skin looks good, the last three especially are nicely exposed - I don't see anything glaringly blown out.
