Studio Portrait Photographers, start here!

Let's use this thread to talk all things studio photography as it relates to families and children! I'd love to see your work, and answer any questions you may have. My go-to studio gear is the a7rIV paired with the 24-70 2.8GM and the 85mm 1.4GM. What's your favorite lens to use with families, and why?

Here are a couple of images that are pretty typical of my studio portraits - let's see yours!

This was a fun one yesterday! I had to broaden my light source because of the number of subjects, so I bounced a second strobe off a white V-flat right next to the main light, essentially making one big light so it could wrap around everyone's faces. 

This family wanted a formal portrait but they are a self-proclaimed hot mess and not formal people, so this is what we came up with!
