It's the same woman you see in the other photos.

All images taken by Lloyd Shearer in late July 1956, on assignment for Parade Magazine.

Elvis is standing on 2nd near Union Avenue for most of these shots. The one where he's kissing the lady is on 2nd just past Gayoso Avenue.

Presley had walked just a little bit south, as he and Shearer were heading to Lloyd's hotel room at the Peabody for more photos. Elvis and the lady are probably in front of the hotel.

Are the pictures from Main Street in front of Malco also taken by Lloyd ?
