Summer 2018 Mini Sessions

I adore mini session days. I’m able to see so many of my favorite people all in one day! My summer mini’s this year were very special as I had just had our second daughter Ruth & hadn’t been behind the camera much. Being with these three special families was so uplifting for me & got me all excited & ready for the rest of my 2018 photography season. And our location was a very special & fun one!!! Here’s some of my favorites!!!!

Back-to-School Mini Sessions for 2018!

For the FOURTH YEAR in a row now (crazy that it’s been that long!), I have had the honor of getting to connect with homeschooling families in the Bloomington-Normal area. (Here’s a look at last year’s mini sessions!) I enjoy being able to give local homeschooling families the opportunity to be able to have their children have their own “Back-to-School” pictures 🙂. I was homeschooled along with my siblings & my husband was as well! I am very passionate about education at home & Eric & I hope to do the same with our children, once they’re old enough 😉

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

Individual Student Session:
First Student – 5-6 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 will take 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!

*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@nomi-photography.com. To reserve your session on Friday, September 7 (Rain Day will be Sept 8 or 9) CLICK HERE.

Our location is Fairview Park just like it was the past two years BUT I’m using a different area of if that I know will work out awesome!

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 not suitable for seniors in high school. Feel free to ask me about my Senior Experience Package!

Mom & Me Mini’s 2018 Recap!

When you’re a mom, you get a front row seat to the best show in town:
watching your kids grow up. – Rebecca

I love that quote from This Is Us. To me it really captures in one sentence motherhood. Course I would also add how I personally can’t do motherhood without the Lord. Or my husband. Or naps. Or…..ok, I think you get the idea 😉

This year’s Mom & Me Mini Sessions was a dream come true. I have envisioned having photography sessions with momma’s & their little’s & big’s in the colorful surroundings of a greenhouse. A friend from church connected me with Anne from Wendell Niepagen Greenhouses & Garden Center. From the very beginning, Anne was so gracious & welcoming when it came to using their grounds for our mini sessions. I felt so at home & so did my momma clients as they were personally greeted by Anne herself. I FIRMLY believe in supporting local businesses & I HIGHLY recommend any gardening needs you have, head to Wendell Niepagen & they will give you all the help & items you need. I just might have to have next year’s Mom & Me Mini’s there 😉

This year’s sessions were very special. I photographed a mom I think of as a friend & it was my 4th or 5th time photographing them (I can’t remember Kymber!). Her precious girls in all their pink just make me smile! Then, a friend I’ve photographed SEVERAL times, brought her baby girl (who I photographed when she was still inside her momma!) & her mother!!! Talk about a treasure- 3 generations of beautiful ladies! And then to make the morning just all around perfect, my friend Amber came with her men & I was able to do a mini maternity session with her just just about 2 weeks before their baby girl was born. My heart was full after this morning happened. I believe your heart will be too as you see these precious images!

Mom & Me Mini Sessions in 2018!

The photographs I get at photography sessions of the moms with their littles are.my.favorites. Maybe it’s because I am a mom myself. Maybe it’s because I know how little moms do get in pictures with their kids. Maybe it’s because I know that those children are that mom’s pride & joy & that she would do anything for them. And maybe it’s because I know that when the days are hard & long, those pictures are the ones she’s going to look at.

I am BEYOND excited about our location for this year’s Mom & Me Mini’s! I loved last year’s & plan to do them again there sometime, but since I will be almost 35 weeks pregnant when we will be doing Mom & Me Mini’s, I needed to make sure we had a location that rain or shine we could use! I met with Anne one of the owners of Neipagen Greenhouse & Garden Center in Bloomington & they have graciously allowed us to have our mini sessions there!!!!!!! There’s SOOO many places we can take pictures at there, they even have a little gazebo! So even if it’s raining, we will go into a greenhouse & be covered & have glorious lighting & LOTS OF BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS!!! AHHH!!! I CAN’T WAIT!!!

A few more important details!

  • Location: Wendell Niepagen Greenhouse & Garden Center in Bloomington
  • Saturday, April 14 (our location is indoor so we don’t need a rain day-YAY!!! BUT if something crazy happens our backup date is April 15)
  • 20 minute interactive mini photo session
  • Each session is $85.00 & covers 6 total people. (After 6 individuals, there is a $10.00 cost per additional person.)
  • Because EVERYONE I know is pregnant, for the FIRST TIME EVER I’m opening up Mom & Me Mini’s to be used as a maternity session! So basically you’re getting a mini maternity session 😉 I mean, come on, I’m pregnant & I want a picture or two or three taken at this greenhouse with my baby bump!!! (Any questions about that, just let me know!)
  • You will receive a few images from your session via your email as a preview. Then you’ll receive the full gallery before Mother’s Day!!! Images & print release will be delivered via an online gallery where you can download them & print them wherever you choose.

Back-to-School Mini Sessions 2017 Recap!

I love fall & the season of seeing kids Back-to-School pictures posted on facebook 🙂 I always find myself scrolling through all my friends kiddos school pics on their first date & smiling over the adorableness of their “first day of school” outfits & goodbye hugs. Several of my friends send their littles to Kindergarten this fall & I read their facebook posts & felt a small smidgen of their emotions in sending their young ones off.

When I started my photography business, I knew I wanted to reach out & make connections with homeschoolers. My husband & I were both homeschooled by our parents & we pray that is something we can do with our children. I wanted to give homeschoolers that opportunity to have “Back-to-School” pictures at an affordable price & thus Back2School Mini’s were born! This is my 3rd (or maybe my 4th!) year doing Back2School Mini’s & I’m just so thankful for the families I get to meet & work with & some of them I have worked with year after year!

I chose just a few highlights from all the Back2School Mini’s I had this year. Hard to pick just a few for a blogpost when I LOVE.THEM.ALL!!!!!! And if you’re wanting to be notified for when I do these next year, click this link to signup for my e-newsletter that I send out from time to time with news 🙂

Ok, enough chit-chat! Here’s a few favorites!!! To all my homeschooler families- you’re my hero’s & I’m SO thankful for you all!!! You’ve got this!

Back-to-School Mini Sessions for 2017!

Please note these mini sessions are for families that homeschool only.

For the past three years, I have THOROUGHLY enjoyed getting to meet & connect with fellow homeschooling families in the Bloomington-Normal area. I was homeschooled along with my 3 siblings & my husband was as well! I am very passionate about education at home & Eric & I hope to do the same with our children, once they’re old enough 😉

So once again, I wanted to give local homeschooling families the opportunity to be able to have their children have their own “Back-to-School” pictures 🙂 . Plus, I know how challenging it can be to make time in a family’s calendar for pictures, I wanted to leave opportunity in case the entire family wanted to have pictures & not just each individual child!

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

Individual Student Session:
First Student – 5-6 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 will take 10 minutes.

Family Session:
Family’s up to 6 members ($10.00 per additional family member after 6 members) 12-15 Images | $85.00
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!

You can now choose your own spot online! *Please Note* that if you’re signing your family up, please take TWO slots. If you’re signing up a student please take ONE slot per student. If you have any questions just email me at naomi@nomi-photography.com. To reserve your session on Thursday, August 3 CLICK HERE OR Friday, August 4 CLICK HERE!

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 provided ahead of time.
