Had an awesome time celebrating my bests birthday in style over the fourth of July weekend  with a DIY Glamping Party! Glamping is a fun theme for all ages, plus I’ll take any excuse to eat  smores!

I am a foodie, so the  key to this party was good eats! We had hotdogs and mac and cheese casserole! But, you can go as fancy as you want with Glamping! A smores bar is also a must for the occasion! To glamp it up a notch and take our smores to the next level we mixed it up with a wide variety of chocolates from Reeces, cookies and cream, and chocolate mint, the possibilities are endless! We also had mushroom cupcakes! These cupcakes were adorable and easy  with a slice of apple on top od a marshmallow!

We had lots of fun glamping activities! A painting station where we painted rocks and log pieces! We also had a dream catcher station! We took three twigs and used twine to form a triangle and weaved the string around in the middle, then attached feathers dipped in glitter to glam it up! We had a nature scavenger hunt. Then we took off on a grand adventure to explore waterfalls and hike!

 

Everyone also received a glamping kit:

  • Fold out lantern
  • flashlight
  • sparklers
  • fan
  • nail polish

I love ” All American Mini Sessions” and I just shot this session with this gorgeous couple! Meet Mikaela Toler and  and Darren Neal! This adorable couple met romantically at the old Kmart in Oak Hill.  Darren just finished his training for the Army so it was an honor to do a session like this!   Both are currently students studying nursing. They are super sweet! If nursing does not work out they have a future with modeling, they just naturally strike a pose and are meant to be in front of the camera! The weather had been nasty all day, Mikaela asked me if I had a back up spot to shoot and I told them a cave. They were so upbeat, they were even down to make a cave work! Darren joked about having to dodge bats! Ha!  We ended up getting a break from the storm and it was a joy shooting them! It ended up being a beautiful evening in the New River Gorge!
