Welcome, foolking! These are fine family photos. It looks like you are using Instagram with the center Tilt-Shift function on most, am I right? On those, you are doing a good job of keeping this filter effect subtle. The biggest mistake I see people make is to make this effect too strong/harsh. Always try to keep it subtle and experiment with different circle options. Then, try to experiment without the use of this effect at all. That is the real test for the photographer! One way for that is to get closer so there is less distracting background. On the one “normal” photo (boy with Xmas lights), you have done a good job of balancing the light on the boy and the lights so that both show.

Thanks for the feedback. “Christmas LIghts” was shot on a Canon Ti2 with 17mm-55mm. My daughter was shot with a Canon 5D with a 70mm-200mm and then some post work. The other were Instagram with effects. I completely agree with subtle effects in general. Thanks again.
