Hi! I have just been trying out things with my new camera.... I have no idea what I'm doing but really am trying hard to learn. I took these pics of my daughter and would like some input. Any advice would be appreciated, from shooting advice to processing.

There are several schools of thought. Here's mine

Don't stop doing what you're doing. The photo are admirable and keepers.

You have subject content worthy of this activity. Sorry to say too many photogs don't.
You have presented her well.

The lighting could be not as "flat" but slightly more bright and more shadow.
The background could be slightly more blur

Chasing both these technical points runs a distant secondary to the positives - they are nice photos of a beautiful kid.
