Her right forearm and hand and left shoulder look a bit on the hot side even in her facial area left side like the highlights are blown out . The rest works for me. Was thinking about the empty space to her left but backdrop covers it for me.

Gotta agree...what does your histogram show?

Quality of light looks great. It looks overexposed though.

Agree it is really bright but why did you leave so much room on the right? I would have gone 5x7 which would have eliminated half the door and been a more pleasing ratio.
I wish also the frame around the logo was not so prominent...it does not serve much purpose other than draw my eye away (your name is enough).

Lovely image, looks a tad overexposed and looks a little too pink for my liking.

I was thinking it should look more like this: Its just preference though.

Overexposed - the light is a bit hot I think - your background gets washed out and lots of overexposed skin. It's got catchlights and god focus, good expression. Fingers being spread out on the one side is a bit off but hard to get a 2YO to do whatever you ask. I'd say you pushed the subject too far left. I think you need a bit more space on the left - the extra space on the right is fine to do so you don't and shouldn't just center the subject here but I think you pushed it a bit too far.

The light being "hot" meaning it has too much power - turned up too much. Causes the overexposure.
