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...

Yummy snacks at my studio, music, hair and makeup and obviously amazing pictures to go along with it!

Thanks to @extraspace one lucky mom will get to go for FREE. So tag a friend who could use a surf & yoga retreat in Costa Rica and start thinking about how you #makeroomforlife.
