    Shoot earlier in the day when it is cooler, is about all I can come up with.

    Find shade! Also might want to find an extra set of hands and bring a big white sheet from home (this is where those extra hands come in). That can be enough sometimes to take the hot spots off your subject.

    Yes, find some shade or shoot early/late, if you can. If not, you could use a reflector or flash to fill in the shadows caused by a high sun.

    If you have or can get a diffusion panel, that can make for some really great light. All you need is a sheet or screen and place it between the sun and your subjects....that's good light.
