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.

Summer Petite Sessions, 2024

Linda Sobolewski Photography

The typical 20-minute Mini sessions have never been something that I’ve loved doing. They often felt rushed, impersonal and frustrating to organize. Despite families reaching out for them all the time, it was something I never did. In 2023, I decided to change up the typical mini-session to something that is better, longer, and more personalized. They were such a hit I will be doing them again this year!


These exclusive summer petite sessions are being offered with limited availability on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Petite sessions are unique because they’re only 30 minutes long and totally streamlined with one basic, all-inclusive package. They are such a fun way to get annual photos of your family that are without a ton of decisions, or the financial investment of a full session with me.

Full sessions are obviously an even greater value because you can choose the location (including your home!) You would also receive a much fuller gallery, more flexibility with timing + print credit amounts to use towards custom keepsakes.

But if you’re looking for a lower entry point and something a little more simple for some updated family photos, this is the perfect opportunity!
