First, there were gender reveal cakes, then decadent smash cakes (and the subsequent bathing photos), and then the ridiculously gigantic cake toppers. Now, finally, a non-cake birthday trend is captivating the internet. Yep, it’s a taco smash. And yep, we love it.
Photographer Lyndsey Wright is the creative mind behind this newest trend involving babies, food and a whole lotta mess. After becoming bored shooting countless smash cake photoshoots, Lyndsey suggested that babies could smash something OTHER than cake.
What eventuated was a photoshoot with Stella – the cutest little hombrette we’ve ever seen – digging into her favourite Mexican meal.
First, Stella starts with a big serving of tacos.
She gets straight into the Mexican rice, guacamole and sour cream!
Sorry mum, haven’t got time to smile for the camera. Busy eating this feast!
By the look on Stella’s face, it looks like the tacos are a hit!
Have you tackled a taco smash? Or perhaps a jelly smash or a lasagne smash?
We’d love you to share with us!
