Christy Steadman

Christy is so excited to check another item off of her bucket list…Dancing with the Tri-Cities Stars! It brings a different set of skills than what she used hiking to the Delicate Arch in Moab, and thatʼs what she loves, to experience life in as many ways as possible.

The Steadman household includes; Christy, her husband Chris, their 5 children, and Bailey, the sometimes obedient (but usually not) Golden Doodle.

Christy is a local alumni of Northeast State Technical Community College where she served as a Student Ambassador and graduated with an Associates of Science degree. She went on to pursue a Bachelorʼs degree in business at East Tennessee State University and then realized where her passion was, in art.

Currently, Christy creatively works as the owner of Studio 148 Photography and Design. She is known for the passion + expertise she delivers to each client she serves. Her foundation is one that was not built overnight. She has been deeply rooted in photography community over the last 12 years.

Christy is a former co- owner of Picsee Studios of Kingsport. As a combined effort of her partners, she has received multiple awards + recognitions for her work. Her most memorable awards; being a two time recipient of KOSBE, along with being nationally published in multiple outlets.

Christy took her photography and design skills to another level while working with Patterson Custom Homes as their New Homes Selection Coordinator. Helping clients design their homes was a fulfilling job that she enjoyed while working with their company…from picking tile to hardie board, she loved watching all the elements come together.

Over the past year a new partnership with Ballad Healthcare has been fulfilling in unexpected ways. As a photographer, you get to capture lots of lifeʼs moments for families. Christy has been photographing many families that are walking through difficult moments. They have sick children that are being treated at Niswonger Childrenʼs Hospital. Christy has experienced much joy inbeing able to photograph them and help tell their stories to the community.

Christy is so honored to be able to dance this year and serve the community through supporting Jeremiah School.
