Are you pressing the button half-way to let the camera lock in the focus (it will beep) before pressing the rest of the way? Do you have the flash set on red-eye? If so, the pre-flash will make your daughter squint...turn the flash to normal. Better still, get some of the new compact flourescent light bulbs balanced for daylight and a couple of 8 or 10' clip-on reflectors from Walmart and use them as your light source for professional results. You can find tips on how to set them up by googling portrait pictures with two lights.
if you have the camer in manual on the back on the round wheel there is a small lightning bolt looking thing (a wavy line pointing down) click that and it should cycle through the flash options, normally the sybol with a circle and line through it means no flash.
As for photo tips, no flash, maybe side light it with a lamp or put it beside a window, this might catch the shadows in the glass so the engraving comes out more.
