Or consider the Samyang 85/1.4 plus FE55/1.8. The 55 is my go to lens for shooting my 1.5 and 3.5 year olds. 85 is tight for multiple people and can’t work if kids are on the move indoors, where the faster lens is most important. Some would find the 55 even too tight. It’s compact size and super fast AF are great for running around chasing or carrying kids, too. That said, 85/1.4 is a special look. For full body portraits of kids out and about it gives great separation and can give a dreamy look. I really like the Samyang, and it’s also lighter and smaller than the GM, not to mention way cheaper.
