Family pictures on the beach | Imperial Beach CA.

One of my most favorite places to take family pictures lately is the beach in Imperial Beach. It truly is a hidden gem. Its quiet, beautiful sunsets, gorgeous backdrops and low amounts of people. Honestly, i’m obsessed!

This family picture session was a super special one, since daddy was getting ready to deploy for seven months the very next day. I am so blessed to be able to spend these special and important times with families as they trust me to freeze these memories forever in beautiful portraits that they can cherish throughout generations.

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.
