Simplicity Photography bio picture
  • I'm Angie Monson, a portrait photographer located in Salt Lake City, UT. Just a gal trying to make a living while pursuing her dream. I am a mother of three sweet babies that keep me on my toes. I started Simplicity Photography in 2005 and this is my journey, it's all here on this good ol' blog. Hope you enjoy what you see! Pull up a chair and stay a while...

Finding your flow for family sessions can be rather difficult. I have found that to make things run super smoothly is to be ready with a basic plan. ūüď∑

I always start out with the posed photos where everyone is looking at the camera and I am making insane noises and dancing (who doesn’t like watching a middle aged women dance?).

I have my entire flow all spelled out for photographers as well as games I play to get people to relax and act natural in my Family Posing Guide. Link in profile for purchase!
