Something like this?

Convert picture to greyscale, create new white layer, set opacity to 65, you're done.

Hi ahkit81 and welcome could you post a bigger photo as not quite sure what the style is you want IF this is it it is simply

image >adjustment > desaturate
make the background a layer by
double clicking on the layer ( in the layer pallette )
reduce the opacity to 50%
and Flatten

Well that is one way there may be others, but do post a larger image help is here if you need it and very cute baby
