New Year. New Look. Same Old Me.

I'm sure you've seen this photo by now. Yep, my new headshot. Shout out to Becki Freed Photography and Tami Mayhew @ Classy Gal Glo for making me look amazing. My new photos aren't the only thing new around here. Welcome to the new home of Shawna Parks Photography! Things are still under construction, so keep checking back to see what has been added. So far the content is for high school seniors. I will be adding information for teens and families. There are lots of new, fun things coming in 2017 for teens. Keep your eyes peeled for information.

Besides the new digs, the new sassy pics and something new for teens, here are a few things to look forward to.


Later this month, I'll be traveling to the Ace Hotel & Swim Club in Palm Springs to photograph the 12 winners of the We Are the SEEN national model competition. Yay!! So excited to meet this year's winners at the Palm Springs shoot out. I'll be joining about 40 other senior photographers from across the nation to photograph, learn and hang. Can't wait to bring home new ideas and techniques and some amazing photos.

THEN, in February, I'm off on an overnight day trip destination photo shoot with my two national model finalists, Jennifer and Holly. We will be going to San Clemente for a day of photo shoots and fun. And hopefully some outlet shopping. Tami Mayhew of Classy Gal Glo will be traveling with us to style the girls' make up. Yes. You read that right. Day trip destination shoot. This is something new I will be offering for my senior clients this year. Day trip destinations to places like LA, San Clemente, Laguna and more. Want to get out of town for your senior portrait session? This is the experience for you!

Even though there are lots of new things happening, don't worry, my blog won't change. You can still count on great fashion advise, make up tips and photos from my senior and teen photo sessions. You'll even get ideas and advice home decor and displaying your photographic artwork. Hang on, tight. 2017 is gonna be full of new adventures.

And just because I can't resist. There is one more new thing around here. My new puppy Lola. She is a 4 month old pug, who runs the show. She is 11 lbs of pure crazy, which only means that she fits right in. I'll leave you with your daily dose of cuteness.
