• I have 9 awesome kids (2 girls & 7 boys, ages 19 years to 6 months) and 1 very patient and supportive hubby! 
  • Hubby really wanted to name the business "8 smiles photography" but if you say it fast enough, it sounds like "It smells photography" - yes, my boys loved this idea!
  • I have a bachelor's degree in Applied Math and Physics from SDSU.
  • I started getting requests to photograph families and children in 2006 and officially started Christy Odom Photography in 2014 when I finally had a solid staff of babysitters and assistants to help me out (although one by one they're leaving for BYU!)
  • Almost a California native - my family moved to San Diego (Scripps Ranch/Mira Mesa) in '74 and we moved up to San Marcos (Santa Fe Hills) in 2001 and San Elijo Hills in 2008 when we outgrew the house :)
