Helping families preserve their memories through

Family Portrait Photographer serving Southern Utah, Nevada and Arizona

I see you. You have the perfect (but empty) family photo wall that channels that Joanna Gaines vibe. (Because who doesn’t love Magnolia Home?). But the photos-up-the-staircase dream still hasn’t happened yet. 

You’re no stranger to taking family photos. But getting the kids ready, choosing your wardrobe— nevermind all the posing that makes you feel like a carefully groomed plastic doll— completely takes away from the experience.

That’s where I come in.

Hi, I'm Emilee

As I always say, if moms don’t love the photos, they’ll never be printed. That’s why I’m here at every step to take the frustration out of family photo day and bring joy to the process of capturing your memories.

I’m a Southern Utah family photographer offering a professional, high-touch experience for families who dream of filling up their walls with high-quality portraits that express the heart of their home. As a wife and mom of two children, I’m here to help your kids focus in front of the camera and ensure that moms feel confident and beautiful in all family portraits. 

Our sessions are memorable not only for the experience but also because I’ll show you exactly how to pose so your portraits are flattering, fun, and natural. When we meet (and I LOVE meeting clients in person), you’ll probably notice my outgoing personality. Because wardrobe and location selection are just skin-deep. I’m also there to help you decorate your walls with memories even after the session.

Trust me, we’ll be friends in no time!

My love for photography started ten years ago. When my husband and I moved across the country to Kentucky, I started my business. These days I call St George, Utah home!

I’m a cosmetologist who owned her own hair salon for 8 years so I know how to make you look and feel great in every picture.

My first camera was a Nikon D70. Now, I use a Nikon D750.

I once flew to a client’s home in Gilbert, AZ to personally deliver and hang their custom portraits in their home. 

A Few of My Favorite Things…


Olivia, Assistant

Hi, I’m Olivia. I’m a mom to a beautiful little girl. A cosmetologist and lash artist by trade. I love all things true crime and I’m sucker for a creamy ice cream. I’ll be at your sessions to help make sure dresses are straight, hair is in place and children are happy. See ya soon. 

Eluvia, Make-up Artist

Hi, I'm Luvi, which is short for Eluvia. I’m a mom of a beautiful, sassy two-year-old! My makeup journey started at Estée Lauder and it soon turned into a side business. When I don’t have a makeup brush in hand you can catch me running after my sassy toddler, reading or binge watching Netflix.

Kind Words

Thanks for the 


Emilee is not only a gifted photographer, but she really knows how to prepare a family for the portrait process.

She shared helpful and straightforward tips from her experience assembling the right clothing, including hair and makeup tips. When it came time to shoot, the site that she had chosen was beyond gorgeous. It was a total party, and she made us feel like celebrity status! This is a worthwhile investment that our family plans to make again.
⁠—Woolley family, St. George Utah 

Emilee and her team are like laughing  gas at the dentist, an ice cold Coke in July and Monday Night Football all together. 

Can I start with a positive review with the fact that I really dislike family pictures. I speak for some husbands/fathers. Family pictures are the dreaded yearly event. Not with Life Chapters Photography, she was prepared, funny and most importantly QUICK. My kids loved her, my wife loved her style guide and I loved that were start to finish in under an hour. Not to mention our large metal print that hangs in our stair case is phenomenal. —Jay Winward, St. George Utah 

We absolutely loved our family photo session with Life Chapters Photography!

Emilee gave us several location options to choose from that has the look we wanted for our pictures. She made us feel totally comfortable and it shows in the File product. We can NOT recommend her highly enough! My son said he didn't even have to fake smile because she was making us laugh the whole time. Honestly best photographer ever.
