I'm trying to figure out what lens to use. I have the 35mm f/1.8, the 85mm Micro, and then the 18-55 VR kit lens and the 55-200 VR.

It would really depend on the type of shot you want to get. If it is just a portrait type shot, personally I would reccommend the 85mm because it would IMO give the most pleasing perspective for a portrait and IQ,  although on a DX body it may be a little long and would not be conducive to photographing families.

If you want a more "enviormental" portrait you might look at the 18-70 zoom. If you use that lens, please be aware that there will be distortion as you get wider. The zoom would also offer you more flexibility if you had to go from an individual to a family of 6

Will you be using a flash? or natural light?
