Honouring the art of motherhood through light-hearted elegant portraits & real personal inspiring stories

The Art of Motherhood session is a place to feel empowered and increase your confidence by sharing your story of what it’s like to be a mom in a modern day world of parenting. Most women wait for that someday or when they feel skinnier because the fear of not feeling like themselves anymore. But you are a mom who understands life is too short to care about those things and deserves to feel like a beautiful woman. Rediscover who you really are inside and reclaim your femininity that may have been long-lost to motherhood.  No one cares or worries as much as you do about your children and as a parent you are going through a roller coaster of physical and emotional changes. You may feel guilty buying or doing things for yourself, but think of it this way, you are investing in a beautiful piece of art as a reminder of your life’s journey, struggles, joys and the moments that led you up to this point. It’s a celebration of motherhood and seeing the best version of yourself. After your portrait session you will have such a good feeling. The kind of feeling when you pull up to the Starbucks drive-thru window and you find out the person in front of you paid for your skinny vanilla latte order.

Stories of Motherhood

Meet The Artist

Hello my name is Jo Haley. Thank you for your interest in my work! My hope is to share stories, build awareness, and a community to help understand changes a women may go through physically and emotionally as a mother. The Art of Motherhood Collection is a place of rejuvenation to exercise the mind, body and soul. Somewhere you can freely express yourself.

I'm a Modern Fine Art Photographer and together I want to work with you to provide the most incredible portrait experience. I'm a firm believer in preserving present memories in a tangible way. Whether it’s beautiful loose prints, layout wall art, or other products – your photographs deserve more than just sitting on your computer. I offer many types of professional print products and albums, all outstanding quality, all made to last generations.

The past year I have been shooting and exploring traditional film photography. There is something real, raw, and beautiful when using film and I would love to chat with you more, if working in this medium is something that interest you.

Kind Words

Having this session post-baby, I was definitely VERY nervous. I no longer make time for the gym because I'd rather be home with my girl. Jo made me feel totally comfortable...especially as the session continued. She gave good direction which helped make me feel like I knew what I was doing. ~ Mrs. C
