Smash Cake Mini Sessions – January 2020

00Edgewater Studio, First Birthday, Smash CakesTags: , , , , , , , , February, 20

January Smash Cake Mini Sessions warmed our hearts in this chilly weather. Parents can make their own cake/decoration choices, based on our stock. They can also choose to let us choose for them based on their kiddos outfit. We loved all the colors that came out with this month’s sessions. A couple of outfits really made us think creatively and we enjoyed every second of it!

February 2020

Chicago Parent Magazine sat down with Ana Belaval to discuss her favorite spots, being a wonderful Latinx Role Model, and balancing parenthood with her career! Thomas had a great afternoon photographing her family in their Chicago home. It was such a treat seeing her relaxed with her children and outside of her WGN Reporter hat! Also, we agree, our favorite winter activities are inside activities as well! Check out our favorite images and the article on ISSUU, below.

Follow Ana Belaval on Instagram and catch her on WGN Morning News- Around Town.

2020 Smash Cake Mini Sessions!

001 Year Old, Baby's First Year, Birthday Parties, Edgewater Studio, Smash CakesTags: , , , , , , , , January, 20

Woot! January 2020 and we managed to get all of the 2020 Smash Cakes up on he website! Now you can plan for your Little Cake Smasher’s photos well in advance!

We are incredibly excited that we have been doing these mini sessions for over 5 years! Creating fun birthday photos for so many cuties has been one of our greatest pleasures.

VISIT OUR BIRTHDAY AND SMASH CAKE PAGE FOR DATES, INFO, AND TO BOOK YOUR SESSION.

OTHER OPTIONS?
If the dates for the mini session events do not work,  you want to include family photos, or you want to bring in more/different decorations than what our mini session provides,  you would book a Full Session, or Weekday Flex Mini, and add a smash cake to it.    

Children and Family + Smash Cake Session– In Studio

If you have your Children and Family + Smash Cake Session in the Edgewater studio and want us to order the cake, it would just be an additional $45 on top of the session fee. Usually, we take the last 30 minutes of the full session and do the cake.  For decorations,  you would just fill out a simple survey to choose your banner, balloons, and cake options.


Weekday Flex Mini + Smash Cake– In Studio
We are testing a weekday flex mini session in our Edgewater studio. The Flex mini allows families to individually book mini sessions in the studio, Monday-Fridays 30 min for $275.  This would not include a cake.   The cake would be an additional $45.

MINI SESSION EVENT vs FLEX MINIS: The pricing structure for a mini session day is different than an individually booked mini session.  Booking on a pre-established designated mini session event is always a more economical option than individual booking.


NOTE ABOUT CAKE FEE:  The cake fee includes the cost of the cake, delivery fee, and a fee for TK Staff to be present for the cake delivery.  For Smash Cake Mini Session Events, the bakery has given us bulk pricing, and delivery costs are divided among all of the booked sessions.
