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.

When a mom tells me her images allowed her to truly behold the beauty of her story, and to feel empowered and strong and womanly, I know I've done my job.

I was born in Idaho and raised in Fort Collins, Colorado. My husband and I now live in Denver with our large rescue dogs, Gunner and Gertrude. I'm the blessed aunt to five kiddos, I sneeze in sets of 6 or 8, I helped to save a dog's life during her C-section, I am an insomniac, I made the Worst Dressed list during Mercedes Benz Fashion week, I've been frisked in a women's prison in Peru, and I wear boots year-round.

When I'm not on call, I love getting out into the wilderness for challenging backpacking trips with my husband.


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 backup coverage. 

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