Most families these these days want their portraits outside, a pristinely sculpted landscape in the background, perfect golden-hour sun dipping below the horizon. But perfect conditions don’t always exist. Sometimes it’s raining. Sometimes it’s winter. And sometimes the family has a newborn. That means we need to go inside. In this article, you’ll read about 11 ways to make your indoor session a desirable reality.


When you’re working inside, you’ll most likely be working in a tight space. On a crop sensor camera, you won’t want a focal length longer than 50mm. Somewhere between 35mm and 50mm should give you the flexibility as well as the compression you’ll want in family photos. A lens wider than 35mm might start to distort faces and edges too much for most families’ tastes. On a full frame sensor, somewhere between 50mm and 85mm should do the job. A 24mm-70mm zoom lens would be perfect for either sensor size. Just consider, though, that a decent prime lens will allow you to open your aperture even wider, which will bring in that much more light, something that’s often hard to come by indoors.
