I keep having some really great families for pictures recently. It's so nice when everyone in the family is in a really good mood and ready to have fun with the pictures. The family I'm highlighting here was a larger size group I took to the Myrtle Beach State Park.  When I'm photographing a large group I usually don't go to the oak trees, but just take them down to a more secluded area of the park on the far side of the pier.

This was a really cloudy, not very nice looking evening. When the sky is overcast like this you do get a really clean, less harsh lighting on the pictures. You will notice there are no harsh shadows and issues you might get with a clear sky.  Of course, that is why I like to go near sunset, so I can get better control over the shadows when the sky is clear.  Sometimes I have clients worry their pictures aren't going to look good if the sky is overcast. But that isn't true at all, you just get a different look.  I would say it's more like what you get in a studio with softboxes and more controlled lighting. I hope you enjoy the pictures, please comment below if you do!
