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.
Stay tuned for Part II….glam, glam, glam. Then Part III…bohemian meets the outdoors.
