When you look around the photo, can you find any areas that are more in focus than the eyes?  Or is all the focus pretty much like this?

It's the shutter speed causing issues. 1/60th is what killed this photo.

For this shot, you could have used f/4 and got the shutter up to 1/125th. That said, with a 24-70 @ 70mm, I try not to go below 1/160th.

20 % Too much faith in Tamron's Image stabilization and 80 % Overconfidence (That i'll get away with this)  .. thats what killed this entire photoshoot for me. Lesson learned (pretty hard way !!).  

Thinking about it .. i should have just revisited .. what i was doing in terms of overall settings.  .. i was very nervous that day .. got carried away .. looking at just histogram .. thinking exposure is good. 

 .. Thank you for input though. I won't repeat this mistake again.

Rule of thumb when shooting digital that I try to use, is that shutter speed should be twice of the focal length. Back in the film days, your focal length and shutter speed where closer together  50mm was 1/60th, etc.

So at 70mm, you want 1/160th or better. 200mm, 1/400th or 1/500th of a second, etc. For those reading this and have high resolution cameras, like a Nikon D850, you almost want 4 times the focal length. The more MP you have, the worse camera shake will bite you. But I’m digressing here.

I have found that laying on the shutter and taking three shots consecutively...the second shot will be the one that has the sharpest focus. Especially when you are at 1/60th in low-light conditions, hand-held, such as this photo.
