Joining the Shepherd’s Guide Family

Home/757 Senior Palooza / Joining the Shepherd’s Guide Family

As we work to grow out High School Senior portrait photography business in Hampton Roads, we decided that we were going to join the Shepherds’ Guide family. Our purpose is to provide quality work for all of our clients, and part of that quality is part of our foundational faith in God.

Please check out our ad (Ty Swartz Photography).

When we opened our location in Virginia Beach it was so we had a place dedicated entirely to photography. We have two studios, a sales room, a hair and makeup salon in the studio so our clients can visit one location to have great portraits created. I had a vision about four years ago after watching a bride-to-be have her makeup done by a professional in a cramped upstairs bathroom. I just knew that this took away from the experience that should have been fun.

As I started to develop plans for a Ty Swartz Photography location, it was vital that I had a dedicated space for hair and makeup. I want my customers to know that they are the reason we are not only different but take their experience seriously.  One thing I learned while working for Disney was the customer is the most important reason we exist.

I am excited to see how advertising with The Shepherd’s Guide will help us find High School Seniors as clients. We are focusing on personalized each person’s experience. I like to think that each session is like a shoot for a high-end magazine. We want people to value our work as much as we appreciate their patronage.

We’ve made it through our first year as a brick and mortar business. I have to thank God for the blessings he has provided through our new customers and a few repeat customers. As the year starts to slow down, I am focused on 2019, and what photographic adventures await.
