A nicely composed, intimate photograph of your beautiful granddaughter. Blow it up big and put a frame on it.

Penny, Your granddaughter is such a beautiful little girl! Her eyes are mesmerizing.

I love the composition. Wonderfully tight and a little off-center, there is no extraneous information in the photo.

My one concern - it looks like possibly a little camera shake. I'm a stickler for crisp, sharp images, yet the slight blur may even add to the spontaneity of the image. - 1.

While a lower aperture (if available) may have allowed for a faster shutter speed, it's still shallow enough to let her hair start to drift out of focus. I love that.

Nice soft color and light - is that bounce flash off the ceiling? Nice!

She had no idea I was taking her picture...I liked the candid shot. My grandchildren are use to me carrying my camera all the time.

How to improve your photo
1.
My only quibble is the minor camera shake previously mentioned. Don't be afraid to open up your aperture a little bit (if possible) or push your ISO a little higher.
2.
A very little bit of vignette added in Lightroom, Photoshop or whatever software you use may add just a little drama to the photo. Maybe even a tiny bit of contrast. That said, I'm not a big fan of overdoing it in software. If you're so inclined, play around with some of your controls, in a tasteful manner, and you may discover that a little correction or two could go a long way.
3.
Continue to carry your camera everywhere! The grandchildren will start to forget about it, you'll fill your drive with beautiful photos and they will thank you for it for years and years to come.
