Kirkland Fields

This might not be the first spot you think of when you think of St. George. However, this is a favorite spot for photos because it is the only green spot in St. George. If you are hoping for a big open field and big trees this is a great spot! I also love this spot in the summer. The sun sets very late in the summer which isn’t always conducive to little one’s sleep schedules. Because of the trees, we are able to start sessions much earlier than “golden” hour. My personal favorite time of year for photos at Kirkland Fields is during the spring. There are flowers and the greenery is a breath of fresh air!

Fire Lake Park

This is probably my personal favorite spot for photos in St. George. Wondering why? There’s a few reasons; it’s not as popular so it’s not very crowded, the backdrop is beautiful, and the water adds as a fun flare to everything. Fire Lake Park in Ivins, Utah is located near Santa Clara so it is a bit of a drive but well worth it. This is a dog-friendly spot where you won’t have to fights the crowds (or have lots of people photoshopped out of your photos).

Sand Hollow State Park

I might be totally spilling the southern Utah photo location tea by sharing this spot. Sand Hollow State Park is a popular spot for recreating, but maybe not quite as popular of a spot for photos. However, it’s STUNNING. The red sand, sand dunes, and the mountains behind really encapsulate all of the beauty southern Utah has to offer.

I love this spot for young families especially because of all the room it offers to explore and play. The perfect equation for beautiful, fun, and carefree photos. Sand Hollow is also a great spot for larger groups for this same reason too!
