I do think that is normal for a photographer. I know when I've worked with photographers before, they were not friends of mine, I requested beforehand that I get a disc with all of the photos on them, regardless of whether they were "good" pictures of not. Depending on the photographer, they could charge you an arm & a leg for a disc of all the pictures, but I've always made that part of the agreement up front & never had an issue. I would try talking to her again, and just be honest. If it were me, I would just tell her you were hoping to have a better picture of the product & although you are really happy with the pictures of your DD, the product isn't as prominent as you would have liked & can she please give you a disc with all of the original photos from the shoot.
The worst she could do is say no. But like I said, I'm picky & I'm stubborn, so I would try to get the pictures. It's tricky when you're dealing with a friend, but it's still important that you get what you wanted out of the shoot.
