Adventure Family session

We tried something new for this session! I’ve always loved all the places I’ve photographed, but the same rotation can get. little stale. I am always looking for new ways to improve and freshen up my work. These beautiful stormy skies and and rugged terrain created a moody and just gorgeous area to shoot in.

I’m calling this an adventure session. This location took a bit of a trek to get to, but it was so worth it! A lot of these shots were candid and I just adore that. Capturing real motion and true interactions is what I’m all about.


Hi there! My name is Ashlee Hayden. I am a professional photographer based out of San Diego, CA.

Actually, I have 2 full-time jobs: mother and photographer. I am mom to three sprightly boys, one feisty girl, and a wife to a very loving and supportive husband who has made my photography dreams possible. I have loved taking photos for as long as I can remember, and have been capturing memories professionally since 2011. This has allowed me the flexibility to do what I love while spending a lot of much needed time with my quickly growing children.
