When shooting outdoors, watch for telephone wires, trees in the wrong places, people, or other discordant elements. To avoid catching the reflection of your surroundings in your subject's glasses, raise the ear pieces slightly to tilt the lenses downward or change your position. Amber eliminated the glare by getting down to her daughter's eye level.
