Working with available light and mainly outside can present problems if the weather is wet. The problems are mainly about persuading the family that rain and overcast skies can offer much better light than a bright sunny day.
The soft light of an overcast day is perfect for skin tones and lends itself brilliantly to black and white images. It's a question of finding the right spot - which I did here around the back of the garage. If I were to arrive at a shoot and say I'm going to go around the back of the garage to shoot the portraits most would be horrified but the results in this case were stunning.
