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!

Pierson & his overalls // Sunset Beach Session // Sneak Peek // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

Mom told me P was rocking a farmer’s tan.

In all honesty, I shrugged it off because he is toddler and how much of a farmers tan could he have? Well, he IS rocking a solid farmers tan – if I didn’t know any better I would think he was out captaining fishing charters with his dad!

We had fun ;)

Here is a little sneak peek:

More to come, so stay tuned!

Pierson at the Beach // Fort Pickens Beach // Gulf Islands National Seashore // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the opportunity to meet up with my main model, Mr. Pierson, at the beaches at Fort Pickens.  He has recently started walking and was a little hesitant to walk alone on the beach – I think it was the sand moving under his feet.  It was possibly one of the cutest things I’ve seen.

His daddy-o brought him to this session, so there are some great photos of the two of them.

Take a look at Pierson’s Sunset Beach Session:

Harrelson Family Session // Johnson’s Beach // Gulf Islands National Seashore // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the honor and the pleasure to work with the Harrelson family again this summer!  The first time we met was for their first photo session as a family of 3 and their little guy was only 4 months old.  This time I had the honor of capturing a HUGE announcement –  their little guy is going to be a BIG brother! So much fun!

We met for a sunset session at Johnson’s Beach in Perdido Key.  I have to admit, I love that beach!  It is almost always clear and the water is almost always emerald! I did have some fears that we would get stormed on and have to cancel or cut the session short – luckily the weather worked in our favor and the skies stayed dry until after the session was over! :)
