Charlotte Smarty Pants

If you are a parent in Charlotte, then you certainly recognize this amazing crew {in fact, you probably feel like you’re virtual besties with at least one/if not all these girls}.  A couple of weeks ago I had the incredible opportunity to photograph five of the seven women behind charlottesmartypants.com {unfortunately, Krista and Lisa couldn’t be there} and their families.  Their site is the ultimate resource for moms and moms-to-be on just about everything motherhood-related (product reviews, best deals in town, activities for families and kids and so much more).  The more you read, the more you’ll find this site also brings you a frequent chuckle as these smarty women all weave in some of their own parenting stories and adventures — its a great place to be.

For two hours, the Uptown Green was peppered with smarty pink and green and we had so much fun!  Here are some of my favorites from the day.

Jen Plym {Chief Founding Mom} and her family:

Susan Bowman and her family:

Courtenay Wardell and her family:

Ashley Hoy and her family:

Kaylee Lundberg and her family:

After we captured everyone’s families, we took a bunch of photos with the smartypants girls together.  We tried several different poses/locations, and these are by far my favorites.  Don’t you just love knowing that they have this much fun together?!

{talk about the girls you want to be your daily, virtual girlfriends…the ones you click-to as soon as you grab your coffee in the morning}

And, seriously, their kids are are ALL so stinkin’ cute {and so well mannered!}.

Many, many thank you’s to the smarty team for trusting me with your photos!  Your new site looks fabulous and I’m honored that some of these photos are a part of it.
Also, huge thank you’s to my sweet friend, Anne Willette, for offering to help me keep the kids entertained while “on deck” {check out all the toys Anne carted over!}.  I love the ‘behind the scenes’ shots of our day, Anne.  Couldn’t have done it without you!

Lindsey - I would love to know where Susan Bowman bought her dress! It is just beautiful! If you don’t mind sharing I would love to try to get one too!!!! lainaramsey@yahoo.com I am also interested in possibly hiring you for the end of the summer for a session.
