Composition is fine, but the images aren't very sharp. This is probably due to camera shake, try to take at least three consecutive photographs and add some post-processing. Are you using autofocus or manual focus?

as far as my EXIF reader is correct he did them with a pocket cam:

Ok, you must use the best resolution 12M, the best quality of shot, the lower iso without flash.

Hello,

nice pictures... important is to capture the moment... and that was the camera available.

Only I would have chosen a lower point of view - is she smaller than you? - this seems to be reinforced by your shooting technique...

Just squat a bit, it would make her look taller (and her legs slender)

have fun!

Look at his focal length and shutter speed. Unless he was driving a running washing machine down a gravel road, it is not camera shake...

Giving advice is nice, but bad advice is not very helpful.

The shots are good, but the camera used is not well suited for low light or shadows (the backlit shot). Not your fault, but the center shot is by far the best.

The camera doesn't matter. They've all got limitations, this one is just more limited. Work with that.

Given the camera, I would get in closer, a lot closer, and avoid challenging lighting conditions. You're going to want directional lighting, but mild. Morning light, through a window, from the side, and get in close. Have her stop looking at the camera, at least some of the time. I think the strongest image is the third one, largely for this reason.

As others have suggested, figure out how to get the most out of the camera. Just because you can produce good work regardless of limitations doesn't mean you should not remove the trivial limits!
