Should still be a point of focus, user error aside.

shooting at f/1.8 is overkill.

the aperture has definitely caused a DOF problem!

I don't agree that this so. The focus point with a shallow DOF will still be in focus, no matter how shallow the DOF.

And selecting shallow DOF for a portrait is NOT user error! This is one of the principle points of using a fast aperture portrait lens.

I do agree OP must rule out user error first, ie they may not be focusing as precisely as they should for such shallow DOF - which is perhaps what you meant Susan(?).
