When photographing children or animals, try not to take every picture from your eye level.
Get down to their eye level, or even lower for a dramatic image.
You could even try taking an image from a high viewpoint, looking down on your subject.
In short, varying your images so they are not all taken from your eye level will make much more interesting images.
