Arizona Family visits Mission Beach Belmont Park

As reviewed on Yelp by Jamie Y. April, 2016

“I never know the best way to start reviews, but I will try with one word. AMAZING! We are a family of 4, with a 7 yr old and a VERY VERY fussy 1 1/2 yr old (as many are). We vacationed in San Diego, and decided what better place to get our first professional family photos. I researched as much as I could and chose Ashley based on multiple factors, including the overall look of her photos and previous reviews, we chose right. From the start Ashley stayed in contact with expectations, ideas and suggestions. On top of that, she provided a “Pre-Shoot Guide” that helped us with many things that we would never think of (keeping kids happy etc.). We chose to have a 2 location shoot, part at the beach and the other part at Belmont Park (amusement park). Unfortunately our young one did not nap enough and was not in a great mood for the first part of the shoot; Yet this did not matter as Ashley leapt into action making her smile and giggle in a way that, I believe, she only can. Ashley took us to parts that we did not know existed and created some of the best photos I have ever seen. Her attitude during though whole shoot was beyond positive, even with the tough “subjects”. After the shoot was done she kept us informed on the process and provided our personal link for ordering. We opened it and our jaws dropped at the beauty and awesomeness of our pictures. It was amazing how she was able to create photos out situations that weren’t the standard “family portrait” and make them look perfect. We could have not asked for a better experience nor a better professional to work with. We are looking forward to working with Ashley again very soon.”
