2022SMT Meet and Greet | Quail Branch Lodge Senior Sessions | Valdosta, Georgia | Captured by Colson Photography

The SMT Meet and Greet is ALWAYS a good time!  The Meet and Greet is a good way for the girls and their moms to get to know each other a little bit before we start the SMT season… and a way for them to get to know ME!  This year we had our first meet up and shoot at Quail Branch Lodge in Lake Park, Georgia!  My senior clients are always in love with the little boats at QBL and I thought it would be a great way for them to get their boat + water picture for their gallery!

I try to get at least a few pictures of each girl at the Meet and Greet so they can kind of see how a group session will flow.  This also gives them a jumpstart on their individual gallery, starting to fill it up with images from the start of their senior portrait experience!  Each SMT member has their own private gallery which we fill up with their images throughout the season.  All group images (pics with more than one person in them) go into a big folder that is accessible to everyone, so pictures with your bestie, the girls from your school or you and your mom are all in that free folder!  All the better to have your friends join you on the SMT!

So thankful for my friend and planner Everly Welch put this whole thing together based off of my vision, and that Lisa from The Flower Shed provided the beautiful whimsical bouquets and flower crowns!  And always thankful for Quail Branch Lodge with their stunning venue and of course, the boats!
