If you already have all your projects, and they are awaiting smart albums, it might be tedious. If you are preparing for this possibility, it's a bit easier.
Easy first. Make a template project and make your smart albums in that project. (If you already have a project that has the smart albums you want, you can use that as the template.) Then right click the project and select "Duplicate Project Structure." That will make a new project with your desired smart albums. Use that project to import your pictures for the new shoot.
If you already have a bunch of projects and you would like the same smart albums in each of those projects, first make the smart albums in one project. Then, for each smart album, right-click and select "Duplicate Smart Album". When you are all done, move those duplicates to your other project (the ones that doesn't have your smart albums). Click the Magnifying glass icon for each smart album in the "new" project. In the "Source", you should see "Library", and then both the project from which you copied it, and the project to which you copied it (in which you are currently looking). The from project should be selected. Click on the "to" project and your smart album then has the criteria of the "from" project, but applied to the "to" project.
Hope that makes sense!
