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!

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!

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:

Dunk Maternity Session // Sunrise Maternity Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the honor and pleasure to work with the Dunks during such an important time: while they are expecting their first child! I absolutely love maternity sessions.  I love them even more when they take place at the beach.  There is something calming about the beach, especially so when you are there before everyone else!

The weather may have been a bit cooler than we would have liked, but everyone powered through!  It was a beautiful morning, clear skies and aqua waters.  Not much more that you could ask for (ok, ok, 10 degrees on the thermometer could have been helpful).

Here is a look into their session:

How good looking are these two?!  Their little guy is going to be such a handsome fella (with the best name ever, but I’ll let it to mom and dad to share that one!)

Thank you so much to Ryan & Maria for having me along to capture such a special time.  And thank you so much for your service in the Air Force!!

Dunk Maternity Session // Sneak Peek // Pensacola Beach, Florida // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the pleasure to meet Mr. & Mrs. Dunk at the Pensacola Beach pier for a maternity photo session.  I will admit it was  a bit chilly – somewhere in the 40s, so we moved quickly to keep Momma from freezing :) The up side to the chill was that the water was crystal clear and absolutely beautiful.

Here is a little teaser from the session:

Ward Maternity Session // Maternity Photography // Sunrise Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the pleasure of meeting Lauren and Brien during one of the most important times of their lives: while awaiting the arrival of their little lady.  We met bright and early for a sunrise photo session at the Pensacola Beach Pier.  The skies were not on our side and were grey and slightly less than ideal, but we powered through and the skies cleared momentarily.

Here is a look into our session together:

Thank you to Lauren & Brien and congratulations on the arrival of your little lady!

I had the opportunity to meet with Brien aka Mike (I continually him Mike for no good reason, eventually it became comical) and Lauren for a sunrise maternity session.  We got some cloudy skies but ran with it!  These two are going to have the cutest baby!

Brown Family Maternity Session // NAS Pensacola // Mustin Beach // Pensacola, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the opportunity to meet with the Brown family during one of the most important times of their lives while their family is expanding.  We met on the beach outside of Mustin Officer’s Club at NAS Pensacola for their family maternity session.  The focus was more on a family maternity session with only a few shots of just Momma.  Big sister was too cute for words, so of course I snapped a few just of her.

Here are some samples from the session:

Thank you to the Brown family for allowing me to capture these moments for you!  I hope to work with you again in the future! :)

PS – I tried a new format for blog posts, thoughts? Also done with a matte edit that I put together (still a work in progess), thoughts on that?
