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.
