Your Denver Birth Photographer - Monet Nicole


In 2013, on a hot summer day in Colorado, I felt my first contraction. After six intense hours, I reached down and brought my baby girl to my chest. 

As I emerged from the haze of labor, I found myself transformed.  I felt confident that no matter what I faced in the days ahead, I was strong.

My birth had changed me.

Yes, I was exhausted. My makeup was gone. My hair a mess. But I felt more beautiful than I ever had before. When I look back on my own birth photos, I see this transformation.

My birth images became a source of immense power and healing. On hard days, on long days, I look at those photographs and I'm reminded - I AM STRONG. (I gave birth again in 2016, and you can find my most recent birth story here.) 

And now as Denver's leading birth photographer, I get to bear witness to more incredible transformations. I'm honored to capture more than just birth stories - I document strength, real beauty, and authentic love. 

When I'm not filming or photographing a birth, you might find me running around Whole Foods with my two vivacious daughters. We love good food...and good coffee. So if you walk into Corvus or Acorn, there's a good chance you'll see me in the corner, drinking a cortado or eating my favorite Quinoa salad. 

You can explore my birth photography portfolio here and watch a few of my recent birth films here.  And just in case you were wondering - I love ALL types of birth stories. Because regardless of where or how you have your baby...I believe your birth day can be one of the most powerful and transformative days of your life

It's in our hardest and darkest moments that we find out just how strong we are. 

The Birth Photography Experience with Monet Nicole

When you hire me to document your birth story, I go on-call for you from day one. Whenever your baby decides to enter the world, I'll be there. I've missed Thanksgiving, darted out of dinner parties, and ventured out in snowstorms. I stay with you during the duration of your birth - be that two hours or twenty! Before I leave your birth, I always edit a few images that you can use immediately to announce your baby's arrival.

Looking at the photos I see my strength in the birth and the raw moment of life when my son emerged.  Monet preserved the most precious of moments in our life.  
— Lindsey, a Denver Homebirth Client
We got more than just pictures, more than just a birth video. We received the ability to relive our experience. The joy, the strength, the unconditional love; Monet captures it all, so raw and beautifully, and I appreciated this more in the days after birth than I ever could’ve imagined. T
— Kerri, A Mountain Midwifery Center client
When I received my final images and could have prepared me for the artistry she created from my birth. I cried. I cried tears of joy because I got to relive my birth from the outside and see what an incredible event it was. I will forever treasure those images and my video and after seeing what she was able to create and my experience with her personally, I can say it was the best money I have ever regrets and I would gladly pay double to have the amazing gift she gave me.
— Mia, who gave birth at the University of Colorado Hospital
