How do you take a portrait under bad lighting conditions? Make your own!
We did this session in the middle of the afternoon under less-than-perfect lighting conditions. For most shots, I was able to get the family in the shade, but I really wanted a picture on this bridge. It was too bright for a good shot, so my husband stood next to them with a reflector to keep off the sun, and I shot on a tripod. I took one shot of all three of them, and another shot of just the bridge and combined them in photoshop (gotta love photoshop!)
