Can I get some C & C please?

I took some pictures of a friend's adorable little girl yesterday. It was sort of an impromptu session, but this is the closest I've ever done to trying to set something up. It was a great learning experience and I can't wait to try again!

These were taken with my T3 and nifty fifty lens.

Cute kid. First thing is location. Find something not so distracting with stuff growing out of her head like in #3. Next is to make sure you don't cut off limbs like her hands int he first and elbows in the 3rd. Start there and you should notice a small but noticeable change to your shots. Ohh and welcome to POTN!

Thank you Chris. I agree with both of your above points! I was trying so hard just to get her in the frame and looking at the camera, that composition went out the window. I was also using a prime lens, so maybe I will use my kit lens next time to see if I can do a better job. I asked her to take a few steps forward so I could blur the background, but I could not convince her to stand exactly where I wanted. I need to scope out some better locations in my town.
