When I took this shot my softbox was in the wrong spot causing the refection in her glasses. Is there a way or program...or who can help me and fix this?

unfortunately, you basically have to re-draw the face in with clone and healing brushes at 100% crop. It is doable but tedious. try google searches. http://www.essential-photoshop-elements.com/glare-and-reflections.html (external link)

Try Content Aware fill on a selection. Doesn't do a marvellous job at this low res, but might just work on the full pic.

You basically have to draw her face, her eyes in particular, to remove the reflection. This is not feasible. The only possible move you have is cloning from another shot in the set.

This is a lesson learned now, but obviously having her tilt her head down a little would have solved the problem.

Two other things you should be aware of. First, you're really not adding a lot of light with your softbox in this image. You could have added a stop more of light and have been okay. Second, I can't see why you were using a softbox--it's so far away that you're not really getting the soft light quality associated with softboxes. I also don't see the purpose of controlling the light in this scenario except maybe to taper it off at the bottom.

OK then, less than 5 minutes to open edit and save and this is the resulting removal of the soft box.
The reflection from the glasses could also be easily removed from the full sized image in hardly any time. No other shot needed.

Learn the possibilities of your tools or you risk being called one is what I was once told, sounded like good advice after a while :)

Nope photoshop, It can be almost impossible to shoot glasses with no reflection outside, so much light bouncing about the angles sometimes just won't work for you. Do you have the full sized image available somewhere?

Your very welcome. I find the photography industry about the most helpful one I have ever worked in, filled with really giving people that helped me out and still do, a lesson I'm glad I learned.

Beyond the glasses I want to point out the background. Way too busy with tree limbs coming out of both parents heads. And I would up the exposure a bit, looks underexposed

Yes I will agree on the exposure, however they wanted the woods in the background so that makes it a little hard to eliminate the limbs...I could add a chainsaw to my kit:D

I'd also work on ensuring that your subjects look like they have their eyes open. 3/4 of your subjects here are squinty. 2/4 look to me like their eyes are closed. Did you check your shots on scene to make sure all was well ?
