The shot is very unbalanced, compositionally. 4

Wow! Daughter looks a lot like mom! I would bring the mom in a lot closer... with her standing so tall it looks like she's separate & distant from the dad & daughter. Also, zoom in. For family shots, the closer your subjects are to one another the better. It's all about touch, closeness, & faces. Hope that helps a little!

I love the skin tones. I would like to see a darker background and a little more contrast.

nice family, but the mom standing behind needs some lighting.

A tad dark for my taste but nice composition. Lady is too much in the shadows and front edge of chair and second button on man is a little jarring. Girl seems too burnt compared to the rest of it - 6

the lighting is a not very even - Mom seems to be in a shadow in this one.

The lighting in this "portrait" doesn't work if it is to be a "family" portrait. The way it is lit, all the attention goes on the girl in front, with some attention on the dad, and the mom being an after thought.

The little girl is well lit but both parents are not, perhaps some dodge would have brought then out, Good Luck 4
