Stone Family Session // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

I met Jennifer in a group for photographers on Facebook.  She was visiting with family while vacationing on the Emerald Coast.  We met up for a family photo session on the beach.

Let me tell you what an honor it is to photograph another photograph – talk about raising the bar!  I was more nervous for this session than I have been for others, I mean, what if she was critiquing my every move?!

Hopefully she wasn’t and she was enjoying her time in front of the camera with her family!  I had a great time, and I sure hope that she did too!

Last Call Pensacola! // We’re Moving // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Pensacola!!

It has been wonderful getting to know myself as a photographer and getting to know all of you! I am sad to say that we will be leaving Pensacola in early 2015.

We will be moving on to Virginia!  We will be spending a few weeks in the Dahlgren, VA area in the spring and then moving on to Norfolk, VA mid-summer.  And I’ll be spending time in Dallas, PA in the fall! It will be nice to spend some time at home! :)

The good news: We still have some availability for January 2015! Contact me today to book a session!

Something to always keep in mind:  I am willing to travel! :)  Just think: your destination wedding can be a destination wedding for me too!

Kopelakis Family Session // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Whew!  We made the session happen!

First we had to re-schedule because their little lady got a fat lip (kids will be kids after all), then I thought we were going to reschedule because the radar was showing a bunch of red and orange cells right over where we would be shooting including LOTS of lightening.

BUT we did it!

We {maybe} rushed through the beginning of the session because it had started to sprinkle again, but then as things  seemed to be clearing up we slowed to a normal pace and things went well! And we ended with some raindrops on the beach!

Take a peek at their session :)

Lanclos Family Session // Beach Session // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

The Lanclos family traveled to the Emerald Coast for a family vacation and made time for a family photo session on the beach.

I thought the weather was going to get the best of us and cause us to postpone the session, but the skies stayed dry and were just beautiful!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

We just wanted to take a moment to say Happy Thanksgiving!!!

We are so grateful for all of you – you have no idea!  Pursuing photography as a profession has always been a dream of mine and with your help you are making it a reality.  I cannot thank you enough! :)

I hope that you will be spending this holiday with family and friends!  Please take a moment to be thankful and grateful for all that you have – I know I certainly do not do it enough! :)

Thank you, thank you, thank you to all of you!

Now Offering “Memories in Action” Sessions!

The colder months of winter mean we’ll all be heading inside for a while.

While inside, we’ll still be living and creating memories – whether it be putting a puzzle together as a family, creating Thanksgiving crafts, decorating the Christmas tree, baking cookies or cooking pancakes together.  These everyday memories and traditions in the making are what we sometimes forget to remember.

Why not capture them forever?

Every time I see a photograph of my past it brings me back to that moment.  When I see photographs of my parents and grandparents as children and young adults it makes my imagination go wild.  Capture these everyday moments!  Not only for you today, but for your children and grandchildren tomorrow.

The “Memories in Action” session takes a lifestyle approach to capturing your family as you are while enjoying your everyday activities.  I’ll be a fly on the wall (sometimes a bit out of sight) while you carry on with your daily tasks.

What does that mean?  Well, I’ll be spending some time with you in your home (or grandma’s house, or on the boat, or at the cabin) capturing your memories in action.  These sessions include all digital images from the session via digital download (no less than 20 digital files) and can take anywhere from 1-4 hours depending on your lifestyle.

Contact me today for more details and to book your session!

Solano Family Sneak Peek // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks // Jessica Patricia Photography

Solano Family Session - JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks - Jessica Patricia Photography 

I met with the Solano family for some family portraits including their pup, Lola (who may be one of the best behaved pups I’ve ever met!).  We had to postpone due to a cold snap here in Florida, but it all worked out – we had a beautiful afternoon with fantastic weather.

And what family doesn’t love to end a session with a funny photo?!

Pierson, Suspenders, & Sunsets // Family Photography // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

Life’s a Beach :)

Pierson is my favorite little muse.  His momma is a fellow photographer hobbyist and appreciates photography, so we occasionally get together and shoot her son ;)  You can find him all over my blog – our relationship has spanned his life from maternity, Fresh 48 and newborn photos to his 1st birthday cake smash!  It is crazy to see how much he has grown!

And almost all of his sessions have a theme – fishing and the beach are almost always included.  Dad is a local charter fishing captain and I’m pretty certain his son will follow in his footsteps!

Take a look at our latest outing together:

Boilard Family Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I met up with the Boilard family on day 1 of their Pensacola Beach vacation!  Their little guy was a bit tuckered out from a day of travel from Texas – nothing a little candy didn’t help fix :)

Take a look at their family beach session:

Bachman Family Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

The Bachman family contacted me to take some family photos while they were visiting Pensacola Beach all the way from Texas.  We had such a fun time!  Their kiddos each have their own distinct personalities and it was so much fun to see them all.  I have to admit, I couldn’t get the little lady to warm up to me!  But, I think everyone had a good time :)
