Relax Unwind Escape


Fine Art Photography by Morgan Hartley

Born and raised in San Diego, I have a considerable obsession with the beach. I never get tired of photographing the ocean and all the beautiful scenery and unique sights that come with living near the shore. Creating joyful, inspiring, and soothing prints is my number one goal, and I love using color to further develop those feelings in each piece. So relax, unwind, and take a look around. I hope you enjoy!

Flying Free


After growing up in Encinitas (north county San Diego) my whole life, it was quite an adjustment spending ages 18-28 in the Northeast. I was happy there because I had family, friends, and new cities to explore, but I always longed for home. I was lucky enough to move back to San Diego in 2015. During my first week back I went to Solana Beach to take pictures. The tide was way out and the reflections in the sand were like glass. I took this photo and remember thinking "I am so grateful to be home."

I'm always on the search for new and unique locations to take great photographs, and as a result I've built up quite a list of go-to spots in and around this beautiful city. In addition to the location I'll also be including recommendations for lenses and equipment that are most useful to have on hand, as well as the best months of the year and best times of day to visit. Some of the locations I'll be spotlighting are:

  • Windansea Beach
  • Torrey Pines Gliderport
  • Anza Borrego Desert
  • San Diego Botanic Garden

Notes from my happy customers

"I am thrilled with my prints. I did a custom order and got 3 of the beach prints and did a collage on the wall. They look beautiful and are exactly what I have been looking for. The seller was ideal, super responsive and accommodating. I highly recommend ordering from her."
