Thank you for your reply.
What will actual effect be? Are you saying that I should use the travelling matte on my daughter? What happens to the rest of the action?
Of course, as I'm typing, I'm starting to think that maybe once I have the travelling matte on my daughter (the subject to be highlighted), then I can apply whatever effect I choose? If that's the case -- what type of effect would you suggest? I guess I was looking for the problem solving and some creative input as well!

Start by either making her brighter, or the surrounding video a bit dimmer, or both, using a travelling matte.
Or, you could think about rotoscoping her out of the video, then applying a drop shadow all around her to create a golden glow when you drop her back in.
Great ideas -- thanks so much...
Even though I am her mother - a "golden glow" may be pushing it
