The Gilmore Family at Fort Williams | Maine Family Photographer

For a Coast Guard family traveling around the country is a normal adventure. For the Gilmore family their most recent post is right here in Maine so when they contacted me for their family portraits they immediately asked for a location that was, well, "Maine". When they were previously stationed in Alaska they had their portraits done in a location that screamed "Alaska" - how do I compete with that! Then that ah-ha moment hit me, Fort Williams Park, home of the Portland Headlight - reportedly one of the most photographed lighthouses in the world. It would have been much more pleasant had the weather been maybe 10 degrees warmer but they really rocked it! We brought along a blanket for sitting on but we mostly used it to wrap the kids in to keep them warm between shots.
