    On sunny day how could I reduce the shadows? Or how could I fix shadows in photoshop/lightroom??

    You can reduce the shadows in post but it's not going to look that great. Next time try shooting with the flash on, maybe a piece of tissue paper over the flash to diffuse the light.

    Here's an example of what I mean. I shot this with the flash on during the day. The shadow on her arm is from my camera bag which I photoshopped off the table. We were under a tent/roof sort of deal so There wasn't much light to begin with.

    X2 on using fill flash. it does not take much to fill in the shadows on a shot like you posted.

    another option is a reflector, but that is really not a realistic option when photographing small children.
