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


Petite Family Session Coronado, CA.

Oh, the love of fall! Fall family sessions are by far our favorite of all the seasons. San Diego makes it even better. It has a diversity of places to photograph, including this spot on Coronado “Island”. It is the best because it has all the gorgeousness of autumn, and just a few feet away is this cute and quiet beach spot. We think mustard yellows, burnt oranges and dark blues are the best here. This beautiful mamma styled her own session (which she did beautifully). However, AHP studio offers complimentary styling for each person being photographed. We know life



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.
