About CT Shoreline Photographer, Linda Sobolewski

My interests are simple: coffee, workouts, and being outdoors surrounded by beautiful scenery. Thereโ€™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.

My Winter Project: 42 Days of Magic {Westbrook, CT Photographer}

Personal Project

After I completed my first Personal Project, 100 Days of Summer, I was on the hunt for something new to take on as my winter project for 2018/2019. Personal projects are so great. They make photography fun and personal. The right project can inspire and energize, and makes me shoot for myself and nobody else. Above all, they improve my photography, in both technical skills as well as creative, because I often find myself having to think “out of the box” for photo ideas. ๐Ÿ™‚

Through Instagram I came across a beautiful, funny and inspiring photographer named Laura Beth Davidson. She was hosting a project called “42 Days of Magic”.

Every week, for 6 weeks, I received an email with prompts and weekly inspiration. This was different than my summer project; that one I just took photos everyday for 100 days of anything I wanted!

This one had very specific weekly themes, with daily prompts. This one would be a bit more challenging than my summer project. It was exactly what I wanted and needed, and knew this would make the perfect winter project. ๐Ÿ™‚

So here is Week 1 – the theme is Portraits. In addition to the more traditional portrait, I had to do a “person less portrait” (hello Gracie-cat!), an environment portrait, a self-portrait (hard to do!!!), and a portrait showing multiple subjects and their relationships, and a couple of others. My favorite one is the first one because it’s of my mom. My mom has dementia, and dementia can be pretty ugly at times. But my mom is beautiful in this photo. <3

Scroll down to the last one – that one was my Christmas card this year. And probably my last one ever, as these two are all grown up. <3

Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments, and stay tuned for Weeks 2 and 3 – Still Life and Light. ๐Ÿ™‚
