    What a cutie! She's so sweet. I really want to see her face closer, though - she has such a pretty smile.

    Very cute smile, but I think the lighting setup that way seems kind of harsh for her. I expect you want gentle soft lights and not too much contrast. Also the brown backdrop she's on isn't doing a lot for the composition, I don't think.

    Congrats on the kid. You've got a built-in model now. :)

    Oh something else to think about, is you probably want a more direct-on shot to her face... she's looking well above the plane of focus of the camera. I would bring the camera up like 20-30 degrees so you get the full of her face looking right at you.

    Definitely a cutie. How were you getting her to smile?
