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...

Portugal Workshop!

Oh my goodness. I am so excited to announce this workshop. This is a dream come true for me. I get to combine my love of photography with travel and the best thing is I get to share it with you!

I have been asked to teach a week long Photography (portrait based) workshop in Portugal and I am so honored to do so. You can also add four more days to end of your trip to travel throughout Spain! What a dream vacation/learning experience.

2015 hasn’t been easy, but I will say that I still have so much to be thankful for. That is why I love getting yearly photos taken, it’s a great reminder of what I work hard for. I love these kids of mine so much and I am so glad that once again BLUE LILY was able to take these photos of my kids and I. I will forever treasure them! They travel all over the world so be sure to check out their travel schedule on their site!

This first image is my absolute favorite. This is the first time I have ever just gotten pictures of me and the kids and I couldn’t stop crying when BLUE LILY sent them my way. DSC_0812DSC_0126DSC_0180DSC_0198DSC_0262DSC_0280DSC_0573DSC_0647DSC_0785
