About Denver birth photographer Michelle Garey...

Nothing inspires me more than the welcoming of a new life into this world. I've been honored to witness and document 100+ births over the past 7 years. I’m passionate about capturing those small, fleeting, yet tender moments… things parents might not notice even as they’re happening, like dad's reaction as he sees his child for the first time, or sympathetic gestures and auras of love from support people.

I'm thrilled to be adding two of Denver's most loved and talented birth photographers to my team! Read more about them here! 

Your baby’s birth story is a sacred and rare event. After working in this industry for several years, I know the importance of having reliable backup photographers on call in the event that I become ill, get caught in a storm, have multiple clients in labor, or encounter an urgent life event.

Because life is beautifully messy, because birth is unpredictable, and because we want our clients to have ultimate peace of mind and confidence throughout pregnancy, we’re partnering together to share call and provide reliable, consistent call coverage and beautiful documentation of your story. 

We can't wait to meet you in person and daydream about your birth story!

Our values

Birth Photography Denver - Michelle Garey

We believe in the sanctity of your birthing space.

We believe in the importance of earning your trust, and never breaching that trust.

We believe in handling your images with utmost respect, and honoring your wishes for privacy.

We believe that women are powerful, intuitive, and know their bodies better than anyone else.

We believe that the mother and her family are the most important people in the room, care providers second, and birth photographers last. 

We believe in never infringing on the birthing process.

We believe that it is the duty of every person in the birthing space to support the birthing woman in whatever way she requires.

Birth Storybooks

It’s all about the book!

Yessireebob, we do give mommies the digital files of their birth stories, and we'd hate for parents to go without an absolutely stunning birth storybook they will treasure, share, and pass down from generation to generation. (Kids love looking through their storybooks and honoring their beginnings!) These books are large, beautifully bound, printed on thick, archival-quality paper made to last, and the pages lay flat for the best possible display. See a sample birth story book.
