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.
