These are the two images I have from my own birth…treasures!
Birth Photographer & Videographer
Hello! My name is Michelle. I was born in an Idaho hospital on a Tuesday evening and grew in Fort Collins, Colorado. My husband, Ben, and I now live in Denver with our large rescue dogs, Gunner and Gertrude. We love backpacking in the wilderness, exploring the country in our tiny old plane, and loving on our nieces and nephews. We’ve found ourselves on our own fertility journey, hoping for a tiny squish in the near future.
I started this journey in 2010, before I'd even met my husband. He came into this accepting my bizarre on-call lifestyle, and he has proven to be the greatest support and encouragement I could ever have hoped for. Every time I head to a birth, he exudes genuine, childlike enthusiasm, joyful that I get to do what I love so very much.
I'm the blessed aunt to six kiddos, and have photographed the births of three. Those were the three most profound and incredible days of my life.
When I’m not at a session, my time is spent editing, working on jigsaw puzzles, nursing my cliché coffee addiction, not really completing home projects, and laughing hysterically with Ben on our back porch over dinner.
This journey as a birth photographer has been immensely transformative, and unexpected, to say the least. It has greatly shaped who I am as a human being, how I perceive most aspects of life. This has been a true gift, and one I hope to be blessed with for many years to come. 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’m happy to share with you in-person how I stumbled upon this path, but for now, feel free to click here and read why I'm so passionate about what I do, and read here about my perspective as a childless birth photographer.
