I find that this approach works better than anything else.

Using 1Div.. or similar

Put camera into AV mode, f1.4 continuous high speed, AI Servo.

Have it such that you can move the AF point around the screen with jockey wheel.

Do not focus and hold focus. Move AF point to where you want it in the image and fix that on the nearest eye you want sharp. Rattle off three or four shots.

Focussing and holding focus does not work great with very shallow DOF with a subject which is inclined to move.

Examples shot today..

Grandchildren.
