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.

Tulip Farm {Connecticut Family Photographer}


A friend of mine told me she visited this “amazing” tulip farm over the weekend. I have never been to a tulip farm before so I was naturally curious. I wanted to learn more about it. A couple of years ago I had gone to beautiful, aromatic Lavender Pond Farm. Then, later that summer I visited the huge Sunflower field in North Branford. Both of those places were incredibly gorgeous, and I was able to get a lot of great photos. 🙂

I checked out the website for Wicked Tulips Flower Farm in Johnston, Rhode Island. Apparently, the window of time that tulips are in bloom isn’t that long. I didn’t have much time if I wanted to get there and see the tulips in bloom. The few remaining day sessions left were sold out. They did offer “early-bird” tickets, meaning I could go there before the farm opened to the public, as early as 7am!

So, this morning, I made some coffee, put it in the travel mug, and left my house around 6am. It was an easy drive to get to the tulip farm around 7:15.

It was a beautiful morning, in the 60s, with some hazy sunshine. There were only a few people there. The birds were singing and the air had a sweet, earthy smell to it.

When you first enter the tulip farm, you see the “show garden” – you can’t pick any tulips from this garden – it’s for show, and for taking pictures. 🙂 Further out in the fields were the picking gardens. As part of my ticket I got to pick 10 tulips!

The picking gardens were a little bit picked over, but there were still plenty of tulips to choose from. But I was there mostly to take photos, and I took a lot. The light was perfect – all hazy and glow-y. After I spent an hour taking photos in the show garden, I went over to pick my tulips in the other field.

By this time, I was feeling very relaxed and really enjoying the tranquility of this place. I am so glad I made the decision to get up and make the drive here. It was so worth it. When I left there two hours later, I had a lovely bouquet of tulips I picked myself, hundreds of photos, and mud all over me, from laying on the ground to get all those pictures. What a morning!

I hope you enjoy taking a look at some of my favorites I took today at the tulip farm. Thanks for stopping by. <3
