Thanks for the comments.

I generally use a wider aperture when taking portraits but read an e-book about portrait photography last night and it suggested setting the aperture to 5.6 and forgetting it.

The book referred to a f5.6 rule. It says that with an aperture at least 5.6 wide you will still get the background out of focus while being easily able to get the face in focus. With my subject running around like crazy it seemed to help.

The lighting was a bit tricky. It was bright sunlight with crazy patches of shadows from the tall flowers. It can give some very nice results but it was hit or miss.

Good ideas for direct sunlight.
