About CT Shoreline Photographer, Linda Sobolewski

My interests are simple: coffee, workouts, and being outdoors surrounded by beautiful scenery. There’s nothing like getting up early to photograph the sun rising over the CT shoreline. I enjoy taking high school senior portraits, lifestyle newborn photography, and capturing family gatherings in beautiful settings. My goal as a family photographer in Connecticut is to provide easy and comfortable portrait sessions as well as timeless, lasting images.

4th of July and 100 Days of Summer {Days 26-40} Westbrook, CT Photographer

Personal Project

I’d say some of the best parts of summer happened over this past week and a half because in there we celebrated the 4th of July. Where I live the 4th of July is celebrated over an entire week of festivities and has become my favorite time of year.

29/100 – Every neighborhood should have a 4th of July parade. This is my favorite image I have captured so far because of this simple little parade we have every year. All the children carry flags and march down the street together. The adults follow and in one of the neighbor’s yards we gather together at the flag pole and sing God Bless America. Love it!!

30/100 – Fireworks up and down the shoreline. I have seen fireworks before, but never like the ones where I now live. From my backyard I can see them going off up and down the shoreline of Old Saybrook, plus fireworks going off on either end of the beaches. It amazes me every year. I was also excited to shoot the fireworks this year because of the landscape workshop I had taken over the spring gave me new knowledge on how to shoot light trails and night photography.

39/100 – The carnival is in town! I went to the carnival in town just to capture the lights of the rides and ended up getting a fried dough and birch beer. It was a very successful evening. 🙂

I brought my tripod and used a slow shutter speed to capture the lights of the ferris wheel and other lights and love how this came out!
