The Senior Model Team Meet and Greet is one of my favorite events of the year! Meeting all of the new SMT members and their parents and letting them all get to know each other better is such a special situation! This year’s event was held at Quail Branch Lodge and was planned by Sarah Lynch — we had wraps and pasta from Jessie’s Restaurant and Catering, cookies by Julie Knapp, fro-yo from The Mix and flowers from The Flower Gallery — all local Valdosta businesses with women at the helm!
After a little bit of mingling and munching, we went into the photoshoot part of our event. The pavilion at QBL is such a unique area, and the drapery gave us a whimsical and beautiful spot to start with. Each of the girls held a bouquet of flowers that had vibrant pops of color — no neutrals here! We then went down to the pond where the dock and boat options were. Once again, The Flower Gallery showed off their floral skills with a beautiful boat arrangement. It was a perfect evening capped off (and cooled off!) with fro-yo from The Mix Truck!
It was such a fun event and I loved meeting all of this year’s team! Can’t wait to work with them more both individually and in group sessions. I can already tell I’m in the midst of a really fun, spunky group!
