Need some advice please...

I took this photo of my granddaughter in my daughters saddle about five years ago. I used window light, a reflector, and a black curtain backdrop. I like it OK and hopefully I’ve learned a lot since then, like not blowing out highlights, etc. I need to duplicate this image for my grandson in a couple of months. I have since acquired a softbox, umbrellas and light stands, etc. Would this be better if shot with a strobe and grid. Any suggestions on how to improve the image and lighting techniques to do so, will be much appreciated. I’m really new at lighting.
