Yep totally normal. Especially if you've been only EBF, you're now asking your breasts to produce extra milk that they're not used to making. The more you pump the more they'll get used to making the extra and you may be able to get a bit more after a while. You can also try things like oatmeal or taking fenugreek and drinking mother's milk tea to help increase your supply if you are wanting to build a freezer stash quicker. Adding more pumping sessions can help too, I get more when pumping in the mornings.
