Fall 2018 Mini Session Favorites!

Every year the fall season brings some of my favorite families & people in front of my camera! Fall of 2018 didn’t disappoint! I LOVE these people!!!

Fall 2019 Mini Sessions!

It’s that time of year AGAIN! Time to plan for the fall & choose a fall mini photography session date! I am offering two different dates for my Fall Mini’s- October 19 & November 2. (If neither of these dates work for your needs, I am offering Christmas Mini Sessions & you can read all about those HERE.) And please make sure you read THIS POST for a few changes I’ve made to my mini sessions in 2019.

If you’re not quite sure if a Mini Session fits your needs, THIS POST will help you decide that!

OK! On to the juicy details!

  • Location: Same as last years! (Click HERE to view some of my favorite images from last fall!)
  • Dates are October 19 & November 22 (Grab a spot HERE!)
  • 20 minute interactive mini photo session
  • 15-20 professionally edited photos
  • Examples of photos include: several family poses, several of the children together, pictures of parents/significant others together, pictures of each parent/guardian with all children.

The remainder fee has to be paid paid by the time of the mini session.

The full gallery & print release will be delivered via an online gallery where you can download them & print them wherever you choose within three weeks.

Christmas Mini Sessions – Home for the Holidays!

I’m so excited about these! I know there are so many of you who truly love Christmas themed photos & I feel this idea I had marries both your love for Christmas pictures & my love for keeping things classic & authentic! I am not a studio photographer but this INDOOR location is very much me & I’m SUPER excited about it! If you have any questions about these mini sessions, always feel free to email me at naomi@naomielizabethphotography.com!

If you’re not quite sure if a Mini Session fits your needs, THIS POST will help you decide that!

Last Christmas I had the idea in time (of this location/mini session) to snap a few pictures of Elizabeth at it & these pictures below will give you an idea of what our time together for Christmas Mini’s will be like!

The location is indoors (yay for being warm in November!) in a home in an historic neighborhood in Bloomington. If the weather is nice enough, I will also have us take a few pictures outside the house by some evergreens! I actually took a picture of some friends right by them years back & here’s an example to give you an idea what those pictures would look like!

So here are some more details for you!

DATE: Saturday, November 16 (IF for some reason we need to reschedule because of dark & dreary weather, our Rain Day will be November 17.)

Save your Christmas Mini Session HERE.

·  20 minute interactive mini photo session

·  15-20 professionally edited photos

·  Examples of photos include: several poses of the entire family together, several poses of all the children together, several poses of each guardian/parent with the children

·  $25.00 non-refundable deposits are due at the time of signup. Once you receive an email from me after signing up, a deposit must be paid within 48 hrs to keep the spot. The remainder fee will be paid by the time of the mini session.

·  Each session is $130.00

· Because of the close & small area of the location where the pictures will be taken, it is highly recommended that families no more then of 5 people signup for these mini’s. If you have 6 or more in your family, a Fall Mini Session or Session would better fit your needs!

·  You will receive a few images from your session via your email as a preview. The full gallery & print release will be delivered via an online gallery where you can download them & print them wherever you choose within two weeks.

·  Only 4 spots! Save your session HERE. Once you signup, you’ll receive an email confirmation from me.

Summer 2019 Mini’s Recap!

Summer Mini’s were SO fun this year! I’m a bit in love with our location & it’s the second time I’ve used it! The special couples & families I got to photograph are just favorites of mine. AND the weather had been SO crazy! We’d had SO MUCH rain the weeks leading up to the evening of the sessions & even! It literally started sprinkling rain a half hour before the first mini session & STOPPED raining like 8 minutes before the first. After that the weather was perfect & the show went on! Sometimes you never know what’s going to happen with the weather in IL!

It was very hard to choose but here are some favorites from Summer Mini’s this year! If you’re interested in getting a summer mini spot next year you’ll want to sign up to be on my enewsletter HERE so that you’re notified as soon as they open up!

Back-to-School Mini Sessions for 2019!

Well here we are again! For the FIFTH YEAR it’s time for Back-to-School pictures for local homeschooling families! (Please note this is a service I offer ONLY to those who are homeschooling at least one child in their family.) This year is very special for me because we are just one year away from our eldest starting Kindergarten & I’m beyond excited to officially “join” 😉 the local homeschool community as a homeschooling family ourselves!

So what are Back-to-School Mini Sessions? Well here’s two links where I share the past two year Back-to-School mini session recaps (2018 & 2017) & you can see what types of images we’ll get & the fun we have 🙂 And then below are the details of where to signup & date & pricing info.

I wanted to ask for your help. Each year I have gotten a wonderful response from local families & thus have been able to continue to offer these mini sessions for so many years now. Will you help me continue to offer this special service? If you could share this blog post with your homeschooling friends thru email & or facebook that would help me out so much! This helps ensure that each mini session spot is taken & that I am able to continue offering this year after year. Now that I’m a mom of two & I also nanny two days a week, I have to be wise with my time & what things I offer thru my photography business. As long as I can keep booking these mini sessions every year, I will continue to offer them. So please share away after you get your own spot of course 😉 Thank you friends! I can’t do this without you! 😀

I am offering two types of packages for the Back-to-School Mini Sessions:

Back2School Minis will be held on August 16 (rain day will be Aug 17) & August 24 (rain day is Aug 25). Choose your spot HERE! 

*Please Note* that if you’re signing your family up, please take TWO ten minute slots. If you’re signing up a student please take ONE ten minute slot per student. If you have any questions just email me at naomi@naomielizabethphotography.com. To reserve your session on August 16 (Rain Day will be Aug 17) & August 24 (Rain Day is Aug 25) CLICK HERE. If for some reason one of these dates doesn’t fit your family calendar, I will be doing my Fall Mini Sessions (those dates are HERE) & you can keep your eye out for when I announce those signups 🙂

NEW FOR 2019 Non-refundable deposits of $25.00 are required to officially hold the session. Once you signup for a spot, you’ll receive an email soon with an invoice to pay the deposit fee. That will be subtracted from your entire fee & the remainder fee will be due the day of your session.

INDIVIDUAL STUDENT SESSION:
– First Student – 5-7 Images | $35.00
– I will spend time with each student & take photos of them that truly capture their smile & personality!
– If you have more then one child-great! After your first child, it’s just $25.00 per additional child.
– Session is 10 minutes.

FAMILY SESSION:
– Family’s up to 6 members ($10.00 per additional family member after 6 members) 12-15 Images | $90.00
– Session will take 20 minutes. We’ll have a blast having your family interact together & capture your family as a whole along with individual pictures of each child in the family!

Every year of homeschooling is a milestone! And capturing your children & family at this time, is a joy of mine.

All images will be delivered within 3 weeks of the session via email with a link to an online gallery where they can be downloaded to your computer & then printed wherever you choose. Print Release is also included. Full payment is due at session. An online contract & more details about preparing for your session will be emailed ahead of time. No outfit changes are allowed. These sessions are in my opinion not suitable for seniors in high school. Feel free to ask me about my Senior Experience Package!

If you have any other questions about how a mini session with Naomi Elizabeth Photography is, please feel free to read THIS POST I wrote to answer questions.

Back-to-School 2018 Mini Sessions Recap!

It’s hard to believe that at the time these pictures were taken, SEVERAL of these families I’ve photographed for 5 years & some of the others 4! It was also having a few new homeschooling families!

Every year that I share a few favorite images from the Back-to-School Mini Sessions I like to share a bit of the story of why I even offer these. I was homeschooled all my life & so was my husband. It is our prayer & hope that we can homeschool our children as well. I’ve actually spent a bit of our summer researching & talking with other homeschool moms as we get closer & closer to when Elizabeth will be ready for Kindergarten!

I’m so thankful for the large homeschool community in Bloomington-Normal. I’ve lived in 7 different states & never experienced anything like the community that is here for homeschoolers. I love being to offer this service to the local homeschooling families & truly look forward to it every year! Here is a few of my favorites from our 2018 Back-to-School Mini Sessions!
