Keep photos in cool, dry environment and limit
exposure to direct sunlight

Make certain the camera exposes for the subject matter
by having less background included in the viewfinder.
Use camera's backlight compensator
Not enough light in the deep shade.
A fill flash would have been useful to provide the
needed light or move subjects to open shade.
Here the exposure has set for the bright background.
Get close to subject to take an exposure reading, lock
it in the camera, and then move back to take the photo.
Use backlight compensation if available on camera.
