From Gabe being Zach’s fishing buddy to Mariah and I understanding one another like few others can, Gabe and Mariah Kerber have become some of our very best friends. And, they are just weeks away from becoming parents!
I was so honored when Mariah asked if I’d be willing to capture this special season of life for them, and I’m so excited to share previews from their maternity photos at Purdue’s Horticulture Park on the blog!
Without a doubt in my mind, Gabe & Mariah are going to be incredible parents.
Now, I have to say that Gabe and Mariah are the kind of people who were made to be parents. I mean, they show everyone they meet that they’re loved and valued; they open their home to others without a second thought; they’re there in an instant when you need them; in all circumstances, they do their best to lead lives and make decisions based on scripture; and when you ask them for advice, they always point you to scripture.
He/she (Gabe and Mariah don’t know if they’re having a boy or a girl yet!) isn’t here quite yet, but Baby Kerber is already blessed with the best parents.
Gabe and Mariah, Zach and I love you both so much and cannot wait to see you in this new season of life.
Wanting nature & a pop of color, Gabe & Mariah decided to take their maternity photos at Purdue’s Horticulture Park.
In Indiana, by the second or third week of November, things start to look pretty grey and sad. However, Purdue’s Horticulture Park in West Lafayette, Indiana is an exception!
With thick trees and buildings blocking the pretty trees and grasses in most directions from the wind, the Horticulture Park seemingly holds color longer than anywhere else. As a result, Gabe and Mariah decided to take their December 2—which was a beautiful day by the way—maternity photos at Purdue’s Horticulture Park.
With their love for nature, Mariah’s boho-inspired outfit, and the fact that Gabe (who is a birder) got to look and listen to birds throughout the whole shoot, the Horticulture Park was the perfect location. I mean, does it look like December in these photos?!
I can attest that Gabe and Mariah have fun together wherever they go. And, as a result, they giggled through and just killed their maternity session. And, I cannot wait to share their full gallery with them!
Side Note: VRP couples, you might not know Mariah, but she does a lot behind the scenes for Victoria Rayburn Photography!
This is a bit of an aside, but I’m so thankful for Mariah that I can’t help sharing this. VRP brides and grooms, you might not know Mariah, but she does a lot behind the scenes for Victoria Rayburn Photography.
I mean, she packages products, places orders, communicates with vendors, and does whatever else I throw at her. I’m convinced there’s nothing this woman can’t do! In fact, Maraih is the ONE who designed the welcome gift couples receive in the mail after booking. She’s just amazing!
Congratulations on your growing family, Gabe & Mariah!
Gabe and Mariah, Zach and I couldn’t be happier or more excited for you guys! (Yes, Zach is mourning the possibility of Gabe not being available at the drop of a hat, but he is still very happy for you guys.) We cannot wait to meet Baby Kerber, to watch him/her grow, or to witness the two of you as parents. Love you and thank you for trusting me to take your maternity photos at Purdue’s Horticulture Park!
