GALLERY

Hi there, my name is May Ehmke. I’m an inspired photographer, hiker, backpacker and mom. I love taking photos. As a young girl, I would imitate my father who was always taking family photos. He instilled the love of photography in my life. Later in life, my husband and I began hiking and backpacking. These adventures provided me the opportunity to grow as a scenic photographer, saving memories through photos.

This gallery represents some of my favorite shots from our adventures. These gorgeous landscapes are available for purchase in limited, high resolution canvas prints.

Thanks for your support!
