My little girl, Lily, tucked in the folds of a blanket that almost exactly matches her eyes. Shot handheld, had to use a reflector to bounce ambient light into her face.

My kind of photo! Did a really nice job making him/her appear soft and fluffy, and I love the way the blue blanket just pops his eyes! Since this was advanced, you might have tried to grab the hilight in his left eye where it runs a tish into the blue and darkened it, it tends to draw my eye right to that spot first. (that'd be his actual left eye) the other one is just nice. Over all very NICE job!
