When it came time for Ben's second birthday I knew I wanted to do something different for his pictures. While he is a sweet and super loving kid he is also a handful. Unlike my oldest he doesn't love having his picture taken and he also doesn't like to sit still. So it was time to put my thinking cap on. How could I actually get him to stay put long enough to get some good pictures of him. I jokingly told my husband we should just put him in front of a pile of food because this kid loves to eat.
One night we sat eating a regular meal of tacos and this little almost two year old ate 5 tacos, FIVE. I said to my husband that's it!!! Let's do a taco smash! He looked at me like I had two heads. I stuck to my guns and said "Seriously let's do it. We'll do a fiesta theme. It will be bright and colorful just like him!" That was it, there was no convincing me to change my mind. With the help of First Comes Love, my expert banner maker, and my awesome shirt maker Absolutely Catabulous my vision came to life and I couldn't love how this session turned out more.
