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...


Senior sessions are just fun. It’s plain to see why… playing dress up and feeling like a million bucks. BUT, it’s really more than that. These ladies are at an age where they are dealing with a lot of social pressure and it’s important to me to capture them as they are. Doing hair and makeup and getting all dolled up is really secondary to connecting with these girls and making them realize how amazing they are! It’s such a pivotal age!! I hope every senior I photograph feels this when I photograph them. It’s not about the photos, the likes, the glamour, but really giving them a great experience to go home with. That is my goal and I am sticking to it:)

Here is beautiful and sweet Abby, she is one of my senior reps this year. We laughed a lot:)

It’s Christmas!

Wait, is it? I forget. Honestly, this time of year is a doozy for photographers, most years I don’t get to enjoy it much because I am working like a mad woman trying to get everyone’s images sparkly and pretty for their Christmas cards! Every year I try to make time to photograph my own kids and this year I almost skipped it because I was so grouchy. Ahem, ok incredibly grouchy! BUT, last minute I decided I cannot skip this tradition. It makes me so incredibly happy to photography my own. The ones I love more than anything. They are my world. They are why I work so hard. They are everything.

I have to add that ALL 3 of my kids were SO SO good at the shoot and we all left with smiles on our faces (and each kid $10 richer;)).
