    I’d probably do something like this. Edited on my phone, so may not be the best quality.

    This makes it so much more dramatic... the eternal struggle of dog vs sausage

    Honestly it looks like this would be a better opportunity to keep practicing shooting and also to learn some editing.

    Its not a once in a life time shot so is it really worth all the effort to "fix" it.

    And you don't become any better at photography byt asking others to "fix"it.

    I know, and I plan to try again. I'm just unsure when I'll have my family members agree to cooperate for this again haha

    Save copies to use to try out or practice/play around with some editing in Photoshop. To brighten go to Enhance, then scroll down to Adjust Lighting, then to the right there should be an arrow and a box with options like Shadows/Highlights, Brightness/Contrast. If you pick Shadows/Highlights there will be another box that will have options like Lighten Shadows, Darken Highlights, etc.

    Move the slider and see what it does and set it where it looks good; it might take some adjusting the sliders and the various options to get the best quality. You could save more than one and try different editing and see what looks best, or if you're practicing you wouldn't necessarily need to save.

    Cropped, reduced noise, used select tool on dog then inverted to get all except the dog and removed weird color artifacts and blurred a bit, then inverted again back to the dog and ran shake reduction.

    You know, the other one was nice, but this is fabulous. Very dramatic, as I'm sure the moment was for her.

    If you have the image as a Raw file open it in Camera Raw.
    Camera Raw is a parametric editor (doesn't actually change any pixels). Camera Raw edits are XML line commands that alter how the algorithms interpolate/parse the image data.
    You can add exposure to the entire image (global edit) or you can use the Adjustment Brush and add exposure to just part or parts of the image (local edit).
