2021SMT Meet + Greet | Park Place by Mclane | Valdosta Senior Photographer | Captured by Colson Photography

Each year I send out a survey to my SMT from that year, and you know what they always have to say?  Their number one request is that they wish they had gotten a chance to get to know each of the other seniors better!  So last year, I put a “Meet and Greet” event in place as part of the SMT experience and it has proved to be one of my favorite evenings of the whole year!  This year’s SMT Meet + Greet was a picnic theme, and although the rain pushed us inside, we still were able to have a picnic vibe and so much fun!  The sunhats and soft floral prints and pastels were perfectly coordinated for the theme!  Games, picnic style dinner (HUGE thanks to Jessie’s Restaurant and Catering from downtown Valdosta), and a couple of different photo shoot areas (thanks to The Flower Gallery for their gorgeous summer bouquets!) rounded out this fun evening!  Lots of time for mingling, and lots of images for their individual galleries!  I just hope they had even half as much fun as I had!!!
