Fall Mini Session Recap

I already have posted a few images on the Nomi Photography facebook page, but I wanted to add a few more of my favorites here on the blog! I totally enjoy mini sessions. They’re short & are always FULL of energy & lots of laughs & smiles! I always enjoy meeting new clients that become friends & spend time with people I’ve worked with before.

Also, I will be announcing 2015’s list of Mini Sessions in probably January or February. I’ve got a couple new Mini Session ideas to add to the list for 2015 that focus on relationships. I’m excited to share!

The Gonzalez Family

Stephanie & I met this past May at her Mom & Me Mini Session. At the time, she was pregnant with with Karsyn Grace. Plus, since it was just a Mom & Me Session, Kyle wasn’t with. So this time I got to meet the ENTIRE Gonzalez Family! There’s 4 Gonzalez children & it reminds me of me & my 3 siblings 🙂 I know they are going to have a lot of love & laughter through the years!

The Hofer Family

Lindsay found out about Nomi Photography through another client of mine. When her family arrived for their session I loved that she had brought their red wagon (which their boys love!) & made their session “their own”. The Hofer’s within the past few years moved here from Minnesota so I enjoyed talking about the Minneapolis area & comparing notes 🙂

The Carrillo Family

I met the Carrillo Family just a few weeks ago at church. I was SUPER excited about connecting with them because let’s face it, the girls in this family are BEAUTIFUL, each one of them. I know that you’ll totally agree!
