Whenever you begin nursing or pumping, it can make your nipples sore, even if you're doing it properly. They shouldn't be absolutely chapped or bleeding but sore? Yes. You can help this by letting your nipples air-dry after pumping (let the breast milk dry onto your nipples, don't wipe them off) before putting a bra back on. Make sure your breast pads are absorbent and don't contain plastic like someone else said. Wear 100% cotton bras and tops. Mystery fabrics can only make things worse and less breathable. Also try putting on some Lansinoh cream after each pumping session.
