Photographing kids is no easy task! They move constantly, and when they finally do that adorable thing you've been trying to get them to do for the past 15 minutes, you better be ready for it!!

Having the right equipment definitely helps! Here are my go-to lenses when photographing kids, and why I use each one!

 

24 - 70 mm f2.8

This is the lens I use anytime I am photographing an entire family together or multiple children together because it gives me great depth and so much versatility. I allows me to take a mixture of wide shots and closer crops without ever missing a beat! And when kids are involved, it definitely helps to shoot fast!

 

50 mm f1.2

This is my go-to lens to for pretty much everything. It focuses quickly, gets amazing depth, and the focal length is perfect for portraits. During family portrait shoots, I use this lens to take individual shots of each child.

 

35 mm f1.2

This lens is perfect for larger group shots or any shot where you want to capture some of the scenery. This lens is amazing because not only does it provide you with the ability to shoot wide, the 1.2 aperture gives you amazing depth for your family photos.

 

I hope that helps you a little for your next shoot! If you have any questions about family photography or just photography in general, send us an email at info@j-dphoto.com! We'd love to answer your questions!!
