I'm not sure if you intended it this way, but much of the photo appears really blown out. There seems to be a lot of detail lost in the children's faces. The blown highlights is especially apparent in their shirts. I can't help but notice this weird blue fringing(?) on the collars of the left and right girls.

Not trying to be harsh here, but I don't like the processing you did here. To me at least, it seems that you overcranked the contrast sliders or didn't properly expose for the skin tones.

PP gripes aside, good composition technique. You kept the girls close together, and placed the tallest in the center, creating that classical triangle we see in portraits. I would have played on the symmetry here, asking your daughter on the left to mirror the pose that the rightmost daughter is doing, and place her left arm slightly back to not block the middle daughter's right hand.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for the tips Jason. The blown out image was the look I was going for.
