This picture has a lovely feel to it. To my mind it probably does not need the soft focus effect. Babies usually have lovely smooth skin and it is not necessary to soften the image any more. The shallow depth of field you have will sort out any distractions in the background anyway.
I think it would be better if it were a bit lighter, which would make it really glow! Just nit-picking, but it would have been improved if the nearest eye
was the one that was really in focus. But as I say, overall it has a lovely feel.
