A photograph simply records patterns of light, colour, and shades; lighting is all-important in controlling the image. In many cases even illumination is desired to give an accurate rendition of the scene. Without Good lighting & exposure in the image, it'll cease to loose the Quality or unable to capture what is desired.
TIP #2: MAKE SURE NO ONE IS COVERED UP

 Nobody likes to see missing person from Photos, maybe they are there yet un-noticing being blocked in that moment of photo being taken. It's good to have timeless moments, better with no one missing or covered in the picture.
TIP #3: LET EVERYONE UNFOLD NATURALLY / “HAVE FUN!”

 A Photo without Composition technique is a Photo without the tool to tell a Story of its Moment alive. There are no fixed rules, there are only guidelines and they are there for a reason. Some may love to break the rules even before they know or understand why the rules were made for. Composition Techniques and Rules often help Photographers in enhancing the impact of Photographs, and to a scientific extend it involve Golden ratio and how people are attracted by the proportion of the ratio being used or made.
TIP #6: CREATIVE IS ENOUGH, DON’T GET TOO “CHEESY” OR “AWKWARD”  IN POSING

However, what can be done better is to create Photographs that consist of a better or nice looking Background. May apply Patterns in the background too, set as secondarily composition. Be at a area with lesser crowd & passerby. Focus your Subject & Keep away from Distractions. 
TIP #8: KEEP THE QUALITY

Probably in order to capture Children jumping or moving, however by doing so it adds distractions from the background due to the Aperture settings. That's for sure not the best choice for Camera Settings. It is important to use the right settings, technique & control during Photoshoot. To bring out the best in both creativity & quality in the final shots. A guideline for daylight Photography under the Sun would be ISO range 100-400 , Wide Aperture & a Shutter speed setting to compensate the speed of the Family movement.

Notice those lines around or irregular shapes that may become part of your secondarily composition. It may enhance & contribute alittle to your negative space. And, they may also help enhance the outcome of the Photo.
LAST BUT NOT LEAST, TIP #10: DON'T KEEP TO ONE LENS : Know what your Equipment can do is important too. Creativity comes from not only the mind, but the form of Equipment used that brings the Photo Story to a higher level.
