As you know, your Google photos library is private to you. No one can browse the internet and find your photos, they must have an album link from you, or be your one designated partner.
- sharing an album: if you select one of your albums, then click share and select your daughter, that album will show up in her Sharing section of Google photos. If she doesn’t use Google Photos, then you should select share with Link and send the link to her. Anytime she clicks the link she will see your photos. You can add photos to that album at any time and she will see the newly added photos.
- sharing an automatic album: if the photos you want her to see have people in them you can create an automatic album for those faces. Any time you take a photo with any of those faces, she will be able to see them. Share this album just like #1
- Share your entire library: if you want her to be able to see anything in your Google PHotos library, you would designate her as your partner for your shared library. You can only have one partner, so if you do this with your daughter, you won’t be able to do it with anyone else. Shared library is found under your Sharing section. When you click on sharing, you should see a pop up with Add Partner account – click there and follow the prompts.
Let me know if you need any more info.
