I took some photos of my sisters new family, I used a T3 with a 50mm 1.8 and an 18-55mm with one flash umbrella. C&C are more than welcome! Here are a couple of samples.

On the top shot, his face is a bit hot, you could tone it down a bit. The other issue is he is lit from the wrong side for that pose. The shadow on the face from his hat is the giveaway. If hes looking into the light there would be no shadow there.

In the group shot. You need to pose them where the sun is behind them not raking across their faces. See how his face is nearly blown out on one side and in deep shadow on the other. If you had put their backs to the sun and then used your flash for fill you would have more consistent lighitng across their faces. At the least you want to use your camera to lower the ambient light so that your dont have such highlights on the cheeks.

Agree with above^

My wife's first instinct is to plop our daughter right where the sun hits her... It's much better to get in the shade and use the ambient lighting to light your subject(s). If you need fill, add a flash.

Agreed, these are more snapshots than a photoshoot. The framing and cropping of second picture is off
