Life Lessons- blonde little girl *PLZ CRITIQUE*

I got this pic of my niece to play with and i wanted it to have more of a polished look. I know it's not that great but i'm a little proud of it lol....now i need to know what are the best ways to create a "studio look" ...ya know just plain backgrounds. I need help knowing which way the reflection should go to. Feel free to show me ur renditions and how u achieved it...i'm here to learn thanks!

Ash - A higher resolution original would be nice. It would make it easier to capture the mood.

Re: Life Lessons- blonde little girl *PLZ CRITIQUE

sorry..i don't have a higher resolution...my older niece took that pic with a cheap digital cam

*and if anyone is wondering about the title life lessons it's because her dog died...so i thought it was a cute pic to catch a 3 year old with such a pose...poor baby
