This biography from the Archives of AskART:
A photographer and painter of miniatures and landscapes, and craftsperson, Chansonetta Emmons was born in Kingfield, Maine where she lived much of her life, but was also active in Boston. There she was a member of the Boston Society of Arts and Crafts and the American Artists Professional League. Teachers included John Enneking and John George Brown.

Exhibition venues included the Wellesley College Museum, 1913.

Emmons was known primarily for her photographs of rural landscapes of Maine and South Carolina. Her brothers were F.E. and E.O. Stanley, who invented the Stanley Steamer, and they helped finance her career.

Peter Falk, "Who Was Who in American Art"
Excerpts from a note, March 2004, from Bruce Barham:

My great uncle, Charles Wilson, was a poet/photographer/painter who settled in Kingfield, Maine in the late twenties and was a friend of Dorothy Emmons, daughter of Chansonetta Emmons. He also saved from the dump, as was related to me before his death, many original camera negatives taken by Dorothy over the years of her travels with her mother..

Some of these materials my family donated to the Stanley Museum in Kingfield. The museum has some fine examples from her body of work. There are other private owners of her paintings in Kingfield as well.

Marius Peladeau wrote a fine book on Chansonetta which includes multiple mentions of her constant and life-long companion, Dorothy. It explains Chansonetta's relationship with the Stanley twins, F. E. and F. O., who invented many things, including the dry plate photographic process which they sold to George Eastman. It was this sale which allowed them to finance the development of the Stanley Steamer Automobile Company.

After the very early death of Chansonetta's husband (Dorothy's father) the Stanley twins financed (in a frugal Yankee sort of way) 'Netta, as they called her, on her photographic jaunts to the Stanley Hotel in Colorado as well as to the South by motor car in the early part of the 20th century. There were many other trips documented by photographs, including trips to the New England coast and to Europe.

Chansonetta was always accompanied by Dorothy. In fact, I've been told that Chansonetta would give public lantern shows of her photographs to make a little money and Dorothy would be the narrator while her mother would run the equipment.

Dorothy was dedicated to her mother and it wasn't until after her mother's death that she married very late in her life.
