What can I do about my red eyes in photos?

In brief: The pupils?

If you mean the red reflex of both eyes (the central pupil portion of the eye looking red), then the fix is either with your camera or picture editing afterwards.
The red reflex comes from the reflection of light from the reddish-colored retina. In children, having an abnormal red reflex in photos (e.g. One eye red, the other not, or either eye white rather than red) should prompt evaluation.
