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:

Reasoner-Dunn Wedding // Pensacola Beach, FL // Wedding Photography // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

Miss Reasoner + Mr. Dunn = Mr. & Mrs. Dunn

Congratulations to the new Mr. & Mrs. Dunn!

These love birds traveled to Pensacola Beach for a destination wedding on the Emerald Coast! Their intimate ceremony and reception were held at Hemingway’s Island Grill.  It was a beautiful summer day with clear blue skies.

These two danced their first dance as husband and wife to Waltz for the Moon and shared a star fruit with their wedding cake!  It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!

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 :)

Take a look at some of their session:

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

I met the Bolin family this summer on Pensacola Beach for a family photo session.  The Bolin family was visiting the Emerald Coast all the way from Texas!

These guys were a ton of fun!  We had a great time joking around in between poses :)

Brewer Family Session Sneak Peek // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I had the pleasure to meet the Brewer family while they were visiting the Emerald Coast all the way from Indiana!  Their family is just too stinking cute… Their little guy walked up to his big sister while she was standing on the water line and grabbed her arm and I just about melted right there on the sand.

Anyway…. here is a little taste of their session:

Nikki + Jon // Engagement Session // Pensacola Beach, FL // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I met Nikki & Jon for a sunrise beach engagement session.  We had the skies working against us – it had rained leading up to the session, but cleared up.  Only remaining items from the session: cloudy skies.  Sooooo, maybe we didn’t get the sunrise skies we were hoping for.  At least it was beautiful!  The beaches were clear, the water was calm and emerald green and the weather was nice and cool (well, as cool as it can be in the summer here in Pensacola Beach).

These two were a lot of fun and were up for just about anything, including getting in the water!

Take a look at their sunrise engagement session:

Oberlin Trash the Dress // Sneak Peek // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

I tried to post this sneak peek to my Facebook page only, but the photos just didn’t load properly.  So we’re trying again here on the blog! :)

Mr. & Mrs. Oberlin had a trash the dress session the day after their beautiful sunset beach wedding.

Here is a little sneak peek:

More to come! :)

I tried a matte edit on these, how’d I do?

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

The Parrish & Fine families were visiting the Gulf Coast all the way from North Carolina.  JPB Photography had the pleasure to capture the families together and separately; which can be a challenge ;)  BUT everyone was on the ball and ready to roll and we had a pretty great session.

Best part – it ended with just about everyone in the water!  So.Much.Fun!

Stone Family Sneak Peek // Gulf Islands National Seashore // JPB Photography by Jessica P. Banks

How adorable is this family?!

Their little guy was all smiles (except maybe sometime when his feet were in the sand, but even then he was adorable).

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t rush through the front end of their session – I was fearing those dark clouds were going to shut our session down! But they didn’t and we got some nice fluffy clouds too ;)

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

The Jones family was visiting Pensacola Beach from Alabama and it was their little guy’s first trip to the beach!

We had a wonderful evening with excellent weather and calm waters – couldn’t have asked for better conditions for the family session!

Here is a look at the Jones family beach session:
