Natural light sometimes needs help

I love shooting with natural light.  It is awesome and the absolute most natural because well it's natural.  Sometimes though natural light needs a bit of help.  I have a marvelous large window in my living room.  It provides from some great light coming into the area.  Unfortunately it is somewhat behind where all the seating is arranged.  

Here is a shot without any help, or post processing.

Bear original

It's not bad, but the bear appears a bit dark, so I set up a 42" silver reflector.

The bear appears much bright without changing the brightness of the background.  Sometimes natural light needs a bit of help to fill in the shadows.
