Here are a few from a recent 1 yr. session. I'm pretty much a completely natural light, outdoor photographer, but these clients kept going back and forth on location....worried about their girl's nap times, meals, etc....so they decided they really just wanted to capture her in their home doing the things she does right now. The home was rather dark, so I used mainly bounced flash. How did I do? Could really use some CC.
I know there are a lot...I wanted to show sort of the gamut of shots I got because I could use cc on the overall session. Just cc whichever photos you want...don't feel the need to cc all.

Honestly, if this were my daughter, I would be thrilled. I think you did a great job with what you had. Seriously. I love the library background and the piano. You did awesome!
The only one I am not fond of, is number 5. It's not your shot, it's her clothes. I feel like she's in a bathing suit or something.

I really like these Amber! You did great with the conditions! Way to step out of the box and rock a shoot! I wish I could pick a favorite....I'm not even sure if I can find something to nit-pick!

#5 - not loving the processing on this photo, just personal preference. I would like to see a clean process on this one.
#6 - That thing coming out of her head is bothersome. Can you clone it out? I like this photo, but whatever that thing is leads my eyes to it instead.
#8, 9 her skin tone is different from the other pictures (looks red) maybe just my monitor here at work?

Just chug-chug-chugging along.
What a great set! I especially love the ones with the bookcase in the background, the flower petals, and the piano. You can really tell that she "owns" her environment and isn't intimidated at all (#7 is a riot!)
I agree with Sadieruth on the clothes in #5, but I like the composition and the catchlights. I like #2 as well but wish the little girl's body and face we at a slight angle.
I LOVE #6 and those little tippy toes! My only suggestion would be to clone out that long thing is in back of her head.
