A few weeks ago, someone told me about Huttopia, a company that offers a “glamping” experience for those who want to camp but maybe in a not-so-rustic way. My kids have been begging to go camping for a couple years and this sounded like the perfect opportunity to dip our toes in.
The glamping experience offers the awesome things about camping- private sites, campfires, wilderness immersion while taking away the difficult parts. Each canvas tent is stocked with a mini-kitchen, sink, two burner propane stove, and dishes. Our tent had a small bathroom with hot shower– game changer with little kids. Two partitioned bedrooms offered privacy and dark sleeping quarters.
The Huttopia staff was friendly and welcoming. The property was clean and offered a lake, playground, and a food truck with pizza.
Aside from the amenities at the campground itself, it’s situated in the White Mountains with endless outdoor fun. We spent one day hiking the famed Diana’s Baths. It was just the right length for little kids and the older boys had a blast climbing up the waterfalls and adding to the cairns.
Camping in September offered cooler more manageable temperatures and some gorgeous leaf-peeping which my photographer soul immensely enjoyed. While the mountain streams were crisp and cool, my kids didn’t seem to mind playing in them at all.
Absolutely! Overall we loved the whole concept and experience. I’m not going to sugar-coat it though, vacationing with three kids 6 and under is hard work. My 22 month old made lots of things extremely challenging but that has nothing to do with glamping specifically! Huttopia made camping with kids doable and we can’t wait to go back next year.
"To say that I love each one would be cliche and a total understatement, but seriously... She nailed it. Being a photographer myself, I am very picky and searched dozens of photographers before coming back to lyndsay and booking her and I am so glad I did. I can't even remember the last time I hired a photographer and was this in love with the images and unable to pick just a few favorites. Thank you, lyndsay, for making the photo session easy (with 3 kids), fun and providing this mama memories for a lifetime.”
"Our images are so special and really captured our joy and the sweet personality of our little girl. Lyndsay did a great job going beyond the typical posed shots and making our photos feel authentic. We will treasure them forever."

"We have done multiple sessions (family and newborn) and we’re so happy with the results. Lyndsay makes you feel comfortable and is able to truly capture the moment. We will have her prints hung in our house for years to come."

"We've done it all - newborn, maternity, cake smash, family photos - and every single time we are amazed by the quality of the end product. Lyndsay captures beautiful moments that we will treasure forever!"
