Tabatha + Brandon

This blog is gonna be a long one so buckle in!

When I moved to Walla Walla it was a very difficult time. I was living alone for the first time in my life in my first apartment, I moved away from my family who was now three hours away, I went back to school, tried to start up my business again in a brand new city, started a new job, moved away from my church family, and was dating someone new!

I asked myself a million times what I was doing but always felt like that’s where God wanted me in that time of my life. Well fast forward five years later to today. I have an amazing husband, two dogs, a home to call my own and an awesome job where I can continue to work on my company which has grown more than ever before!

Along with those blessings I have been extremely blessed with my friends here. Two of those dear friends would be Brandon and Tabatha. They moved here about two or three years after I did. I finally asked her out on a girls “Treat Yaself” date, I knew we were going to be the best of friends. Tabatha has been such a God sent to me in a million ways. Since I don’t live close to any of my sisters it’s nice to have a friend that is like my stand in sister!

I could talk about her huge heart, her kind spirt and her beautiful family for days, but let’s talk about her huge belly instead. When I found out Tabatha was pregnant I could hardly stand it! I asked (told) her that I wanted to do her baby shower and her maternity pictures as soon as we could! Well, I had to be patient but it finally happened.

We ended up doing a quick shoot this weekend because I wanted to make sure we had some just incase she popped (I want to do another creative shoot but we will she how things go) after the shower. Then today Trevor and our other family friends (Brandon-yes another one- and Amber) helped me set up for her baby shower. Since this was my first baby shower to EVER host I knew I needed to rock it out of the park for them! So after planning the games, music, menu and decoration it was show time and all in all…. it was perfect!

So, enjoy these pictures and try to have your heart melt right out of your body by this beautiful family. I love Emma (their daughter-she’s a model baby). She is so beautiful and you can see her happy little heart in each one of these pictures!

It was SUCH a beautiful day celebrating the Shadel Family and the new little baby boy that’s almost here and I feel so blessed to call them my friends.
