I’m a family/kid photographer in the central Ohio area. I've been taking photos in a professional capacity for over a decade! I ADORE photography and am very much a people person, so working as a photographer is my dream job. I am originally from California and will always think of myself as a “Cali girl”, but now reside in Westerville, Ohio. I am blessed to be the mommy of two sweet, spunky, adorable girls and wife to an amazing man who tolerates and supports all of my creative whimsy. With good humor, no less.

I love nature and being outdoors, especially near the ocean. When I can't be there, you'll often find me on the paddle-board with my husband at our nearby lake/reservoir. I'm an animal lover and dog person through and through, and adore our two yellow Labradors, Biggs & Wedge (Star Wars fans will recognize their names!). I also enjoy singing and playing the piano, writing fiction, and exploring central Ohio for coffee shops and interesting photo spots. My weaknesses are dark chocolate and strong, rich coffee.

I would love to meet and work with you!

Capturing life's moments with Christy Rice Photography is creatively fulfilling in so many ways. My fashion design and photo styling background is helpful in assisting with posing subjects to create desired images, while also making sure the overall look feels natural in fitting with the Christy Rice Photography style. In addition to photo styling, I create hair and makeup looks and second shoot as needed. From engagement sessions to model look books and family sessions, Christy and I connect with our subjects to put them at ease in order to capture their truest beauty. It's not uncommon to hear me singing Disney songs at the top of my lungs or doing my best dinosaur impression to make the little ones giggle. You never know what each session will bring!

I adore my black bobtail cat Mischka and love all things pineapple and leopard.
