I don't know if you are looking for a critique or not, but I thought I would put in my 2 cents (which may be all it is worth). I like the posing on these but it looks like you are using a flash or some other form of artificial light. I find that shots like these look much better if you use natural light or diffuse the light source of an artificial light if there is not enough natural light available. These show a lot of promise, hoope my 2 cents makes sense.

Critique is always welcome on any of my photos. These were taken of my oungest daughter while scouting for locations for a senior shoot of my oldest which I hope to do tom. I will certainly give it a try with natural lighting only and post the results.
Thanks.

Melody, I really like what you are trying to do on these shots. #1 is a particularly attractive pose. The problem that headhunter mentions is most telling is on #3 with the glare from the door overwhelming your daughter. Were the shots taken with the on-board flash or a dedicated flash unit? If you can soften the effect of the flash, either with a diffuser, or by bouncing the light, you can get richer skin tones with less of the reflected glare. Nice idea for the shots, and there's a whole lot more to like here than to criticize.
