The lighting is maybe a bit flat. Try having it side-lit with a reflector filling-in a bit of the shadow side.

With a niece like that and a D7000, the world's your lobster.

As Left Forum says, a reflector will help lift the lighting on the subject. Also, go for a closer shot so that you get a more head and/or shoulders shot - this will also provide a nicely out-of-focus background.
