Sara and Todd~ PART I “Bringing the funk”

posted by Kelly

Here is Part one of a three part series on Todd and Sara. I mentioned in their teaser that Sara is a local photographer here in Lynchburg specializing in uber chic children’s portaits. She is vivacious, stylish, sincere and just a darn good friend to have. Todd is the perfect compliment to her personality. He unloads what we fondly call “joke grenades” clever little quips, sayings, quotes, and funnies that take a moment to sink in before you start busting a gut. He is sweet, kind, and genuine. They drip talent together. Todd can play just about any instrument you throw at him. I wish I had a recording of their “colorful” rendition of Peter Pans “Following the Leader”.

Sara and Todd have been together for over a decade and besides their wedding day they have never ever had a photo shoot done. She emailed us a few months ago with an idea for a trade out. We are in DIRE need of some family photos so we jumped at the chance to make these two sexy pants shine! Sara and I let the emails fly for ideas. They did an incredible job of styling the shoot with mad style. I am pretty sure Sara can pull off a paper bag on her head! The Toddster did a great job being her arm candy. He also earned two fabulous names during our shoot. One is “Hot Toddie” and the other is Toddio (said like Fabio). It made for good banter and getting him to smile.

Drum roll…….everybody chant “Sara and Toddio, Sara and Toddio, Sara and Toddio….”

It’s amazing how walking around in sneakers between shots can kill your “cool points”. Lot’s of gym teacher references.

Can I just pay Sara to go shopping for me? Seriously, I could never put something like that together.

Seth remembers her from college. I feel like I met Hot Toddie before too. hmmm….

LOVE LOVE LOVE THESE! They are MAGAZINE quality!

Looking at these made us totally remember what it was like to have you two freaks photographing us, you have a fiendishly awesome way of settling people into a style they never realized they had. Somehow, you reach into people and pull Kellashion-Styleness out and party all over it!

We miss you more every day…

I couldn’t comment on this before because your site kept crashing on me (or perhaps my computer kept crashing your site). Anyways, AWESOME Session! Makes me crave for pics of Jared & I. :)
