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.

Connecticut Family Photographer |”What’s Good Wednesday” {March Edition}

What's Good Wednesday

I had my whole blog post ready for the March Edition of “What’s Good Wednesday”. But wow, there have been some crazy changes in the way we are all living now. I feel scared as heck with the unknown, and with almost everything shut down, it feels surreal too. In my lifetime, I’ve never had to deal with anything like social distancing and quarantines.

So, with this in mind, I decided to focus on the good. And there still is plenty of good all around us. My March edition of “What’s Good Wednesday” is about some of the fun, healthy things we can do to stay busy, and enjoy life in these unsettling, turbulent times.

Be Active

Those of you that know me, know that working out and being active is a very important part of my life. I swim, walk, and ride my bike. But I really love my gym, Quest Fitness, for it’s very hard, but very safe workouts, that have me in the best shape of my life. I miss them being open!! However, like other specialty gyms, they are offering their work-outs online. Besides taking as many walks outside as possible, I will be doing my Quest workouts at home until they open again, which can’t be soon enough for me.

Be Creative

It’s fun and good for your soul to create, and it’s even better if you have friends doing it with you. The CT shoreline has a local business called Painted By The Shore, which offers one-of-a-kind workshops, while at the same time offering an environment to socialize with old friends & make new ones. I’ve even gone with my daughter. They focus on mostly usable art projects – lanterns, ornaments, glassware & serving trays, to name a few.

I am excited to see they are now offering DIY in a Box, delivered right to your door. All your project materials are included, and shipping is free. What I really like is there is a private facebook group set up for each project with a date/time to tune in & paint LIVE from home!

April’s project is a cement planter with an air plant. It’s so cute! I love the colors. It’s a perfect spring project and I can’t wait to make it.

Be Calm

As soon as I wake up in the morning, my mind starts going through all the things I need to do. I always wake up ready and rearing to go. The problem is, I don’t always know how to slow it down, and I can often end up exhausted and feeling burnt-out. And now, with the unknown of Covid-19 outbreak; not being able to practice dental hygiene, not being able to go to my gym and pool, and just being worried about so much, my mind feel like it’s racing.

Enter Calm. Calm is a meditation, sleep and relaxation app. I usually don’t have any problems falling asleep, but I do need a little help relaxing. A calm app meditation session lasts about 10 minutes long. Just TEN MINUTES, and I almost always have trouble getting myself to stop and sit down for those ten minutes! But once I do, I am always glad I did it. Because within those ten minutes I feel myself relax, and quite often feel a total sense of clarity. It’s such a great way to start the day. Calm offers a 7 day free trial, and I highly recommend trying it out.
