Please take this as constrctive criticism:

  1. Avoid scrunched noses in portraits. A barely touching or about to touch pose is much more flattering and also packs more anticipation/emotion.
  2. When shooting outdoors, watch out for flash that doesn't match up the WB of the warmer ambient light. A gel can help with that.
  3. Also work on matching flash power with ambient. It looks "too hot" when compared to the ambient light. IOW, the lighting on the background is really nice, but the lighting on your subjects isn't -- and neither does it feel natural.
  4. Finally, I can't tell for sure, but that looks like on-camera flash, which is seldom best. Even if off-camera, the positioning doesn't look ideal (looks as hard as on-camera flash).

Work on those things, and your work will be even better!

thanks, not sure my work can get too much better though. But thanks for the tips.
