my first note is you need to learn lighting better. The tea party shots are adorable, but the light is really harsh. Either work in better light ( IE mornings, or evening) or start looking at how to manipulate it. There’s a lot of tea party shots out there, where you see them in a stand of trees with like tule ( tool? tulle? I dunno lol) stretched between. The Tulle ( since it isn’t coming up as misspelled) is probably acting as a giant diffuser so they don’t have dappled light across them.

You can buy a 5 in 1 reflector that has a decent diffuser for really harsh light for less then 20 bucks. And you’ll love it. Also a white “picnic blanket” instead of green would have bounced more light into their faces. Photography is all about light 🙂
