Welcome to Studio 9 Photography!

I am Christy and thank you so much for looking at my site.

I hope you enjoy and please feel free to contact me with any questions you have.

First, you should know a little about me:

I am a self-taught photographer born and raised in Texas!

I am a mother, wife, and Facebook nerd (no joke, my husband thinks I need to go to FB anonymous)

9 out of 10 sessions you will see me in cowgirl boots (again, a Texas thing)

Mexican food and coffee are must haves in my life

I am a natural light/studio light photographer

I am extremely passionate about what I do

I am patient, loving, caring, and put my whole heart into ALL my sessions

I love capturing sweet, natural, special, and intimate moments



 Please Note: My studio is located in Sumter, SC.  I do cover the Columbia, Manning, Florence and surrounding areas as well.

Shannon Arthur - Christy, I’m a born & raised Texan too! Moved to SC in 1999. Fell in love and stayed. I blame being so loud & talkative on being a Texan. David says I’m “Texas loud” and Amber actually calls me “Texass”! Haha! I’ve got a Texas-sized heart too, which is a blessing and a curse. I’m really looking forward to working with you. Even more so now that I know you’re a Lone Star gal!
