I'M Em! happy wife, momma of four, believer, & avid coffee drinker

i'm so thrilled to meet you, friend!

…and I’m so happy you’ve stopped by. My understanding of the value of photography has deepened as I’ve stepped into the labels listed above (well..except for being an avid coffee drinker…I just really like coffee!) You can read more about that on the page a click over, but suffice it to say that I have become increasingly passionate about helping families in all stages of their life capture the love, joy and values of their hearts as they grow. Building a legacy that can be seen on the walls of your carries great significance as you strengthen your marriage, raise and launch your children into the world, and carry on in the faith until the end. Keep looking around to learn more about me, what I value, and how we can work together to create meaningful photographs from the moment of “I do,” to quietness of an empty nest and into the bubbling love of home full of grandchildren. 
Let’s talk soon!

Em Rae


I cannot recommend Em highly enough! …She is clearly blessed with a talent for capturing the beauty in relationships. Each picture we got was not only beautiful aesthetically, but also showed my favorite people’s personalities and the dynamics between them. I’m so grateful for these special photos! Thank you!

The Neff Family

My daughter had a senior portrait session recently with The Fresh Walk and we couldn’t be happier with the results! … We now have pictures of a beautiful sunrise and my daughter looking more comfortable and relaxed in photos then I’ve ever seen her. I’m not sure how you brought her out of her shell but you did:)


The Fresh Walk (Em Rae) is one amazing photographer! I’m blown away by the moments she captured. So many of them tugged at my heart, and a few even made me tear up. She caught so much movement, life, love and joy.
Mamas, if you are ready for a family photoshoot, email this special lady right away! You won’t regret it!!


...I really don’t know how to adequately express how grateful I am for the way you captured our daughter’s unique and sweet personality. Thank you for spending time getting to know who she is and capturing the essence of the sweet girl we all love so much.You are an amazing photographer that God has gifted with eyes to see the beauty and ears to hear the story...

We had such a blast during our maternity session!! Our amazing photographer made the day so easy and relaxed. It felt just like a group of friends hanging out and walking around some freezing and flooded fields! 😊 We are thankful for Em and all she did to help us celebrate our baby girl!
