Back2School Mini Sessions for 2020

I’m really happy & honestly proud that this will be the SIXTH YEAR I’ve had Back-to-School pictures for local homeschooling families! As we all know education for children in our area is completely different then last year & it’s exciting for me to see many families drawn to the homeschool community. We are starting our own homeschool journey- Elizabeth is in Preschool!

Please keep reading for my COVID19 procedure & changes for this year’s Back2School Minis- there are quite a few!

Because of the growth of homeschooling in BN, I will offer these mini sessions to a wider client circle once I connect with my usual homeschool family clients. Please note this is a service I usually only offer to those who are homeschooling at least one child in their family. If I have some open slots, I may open it up to those who are doing e-learning. Just depends!

What are Back-to-School Mini Sessions? Here are two links where you can see the past two year Back-to-School mini session recaps (2019 & 2018) & you can see what types of images we’ll get & the fun we have!

 on NEW FOR 2020
NEW FORMAT I have spread the mini sessions throughout the week instead of having them on just two days. This will allow me to pace myself & my body 😉 better & allow for social distancing between families.
MAKEUP RAIN DAYS Make-up Rain days for the scheduled session is the day AFTER. IE if you signup for a mini session on Monday if it rains, your photo session will be rescheduled for the next evening on Tuesday, at the exact same time. If you signup for a session on Wednesday, your makeup rain day is Thursday. Friday & Saturday’s sessions makeup rain day will all be on Sunday. Please make sure you’re free for your makeup rain day as well as the day you signed-up for a session.
COVID19 I have scheduled a bigger break then usual between sessions to allow less contact between my clients. I will have a mask & will wear it when I’m not able to be 6 feet apart during the session. I do not expect those who I’m photographing or interacting with to wear masks since you are the ones in the photos & we will be outside. I will not be taking requests for using masks or toilet paper in photo sessions. I see these as important items & not photo props.
PREVIEWS In the past I’ve sent previews from sessions the same evening the session has happened, with our family being full blown into newborn life plus two other little ones, previews will be emailed out within 24-48 hrs after the session.
DEPOSIT Please remember that a $25.00 non-refundable deposit is due to officially hold your mini session. You will receive an invoice emailed to you within a few days of your signup to pay the deposit.
LOCATION I had a few clients request to go back to last year’s location & I was just there to see how the wildflowers were & the nature center is honestly a huge mess! No flowers this year & it’s all very overgrown & not “pretty”. The nature center is going through a preservation process I read & so I will be looking for another location for us this year. I already have one in mind but need to check on it!

STUDENT MINI SESSION VS FAMILY MINI SESSION As usual I am offering two options of Back2School Mini Sessions. Please see below the detailed description of each session as they’ve changed a bit this year.

STUDENT MINI SESSION: These are now setup for just ONE student. I rarely have a request for this type of mini session so this year there are only two openings for a Student Mini Session. One on Friday & one on Saturday- both at 5:55PM. IE If you have one child in your family needing Back2School pictures, please choose this option.

– 5-7 Images
– $40.00 (*$25.00 deposit due at time of signup)
– I will spend time with the student & take photos of them that truly capture their smile & personality!

FAMILY MINI SESSION: These are for families that have 2 or more students wanting Back2School pictures OR the entire family. IE you have two children in your family needing Back2School pictures, choose this option. OR if your entire family wants pictures, choose this option as well. Please look over the breakdown of the fee charged per the amount in the session.  

– 2 Students $40+$30 = $70
– 3 Students $40+$30+$30 = $100
– 4 Students $110
– 1 to 4 children+parents = $120
After 6 individuals in a session being photographed, there is a $10.00 fee per additional family member.
– 4-6 Images of each student
– Plus images of students together & parents
– 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!


Sorry that was a lot of details! If you have any questions just email me at naomi@naomielizabethphotography.com. If for some reason one of these dates doesn’t fit your family calendar, I will be organizing my Fall Mini Sessions very similar in October. Keep your eye on your email for when I announce those!

I CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU ALL! Choose your spot before they’re gone & tell your fellow homeschooling friends!

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 remainder of the session fee 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 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!
