The lens I've been shooting with since 2014, the Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART DG HSM Lens for Nikon. It was love at first click , since buying it, I have rarely taken it off.
This lens gives me a variety of photos at the quality I need. It gives an incredible close up, while showing off the area around the subjects. This camera is my absolute go to for shoots taken out in nature.
This lens captures the landscape and the surroundings I need to tell my story. It is one of my go-to lenses because of the amazing sharpness and detail it gives my images.
Indoor portraits look incredible as well, which means I don't have to worry about carrying around a dozen different lenses.
The price point is absolutely worth it for the quality of the lens.

For the same reasons I love the Sigma 35mm F1.4 ART Lens , the Sigma 24mm F1.4 Art Lens is my other go-to lens. It's amazing for outdoor shots and capturing more of that landscape I want.
It works incredibly well indoors, and is great with small spaces. The only thing you might need to keep an eye-on is the distortion this wide lens creates.
You should be able to shoot portraits without issue, however, you should try to avoid getting too close to the subject to maintain the subject's correct proportions. Boudoir photographers should keep an eye on this especially, the head can easily look too large if you are working with a subject that has a petit build.
