One issue I see is the bright light in the background.The camera is using that light to select camera speed or aperture. neither of what it should be doing. You never want the background light be brighter than the light in front. With one possibel exception

Your outside in bright sun light and the subject is standing in front of tree with lots of shade. In that case you need fill flash but it should never be bright than what you use in front. else you will always get these washed out pictures. I've tried and everytime the background was brighter than the foreground I always get pictures that look like this.
