Fueled by equal parts sweet tea and passion, I spend my days capturing the kinds of images that make you stop, smile and ask time to please slow down. You, your story, your life, are beautiful and I can't wait to capture it all in images you will treasure for years to come.
I believe your beautiful portraits should live on the walls of your home, not on your phone or worse, floating around in the cloud. I believe in the kinds of images that remind you of the joy that can be found in the simplest of moments together.

"Booking a dance shoot with Heather is about so much more than the outcome - breathtakingly beautiful photographs. It's the entire experience, from collaborating on the location, choosing dancewear, to the exciting shoot day when she invites the dancer behind the lens for a quick peek.
Heather radiates positivity! Not only do I feel completely safe with her, her knowledge of the dance world, and her ability to produce stunning images, I know she has my dancer's best interest at heart. My daughter leaves every shoot full of confidence and we are both in awe every time we see the end results. Absolutely the best dance photographer in Maryland!"

"Heather has been taking photos for us since my youngest was born. She always captures the most special moments, even with a crazy toddler! She always has the best ideas for photos but is also interested in hearing our ideas as well. She is so good with the little ones of all ages, and always makes us feel comfortable in any situation. The end results are always better than we hoped for!"
"you simply must book her today! no regrets!

Absolutely! Included with every booked session, is my exclusive Portrait Session Style Guide customized to your exact kind of portraits.

For dance sessions, as each dancer is unique with different skill sets and levels, being prepared with poses ahead of time that showcase your unique strengths as a dancer will help us use our time together more efficiently. Then, together we will come up with more creative poses as our session moves forward.
I will be keeping a close eye on the weather in the days leading up to our time together. I will be in touch if it looks like we need to adjust our meeting time or date to work around weather. We generally find an agreeable date within just a few days if we need to reschedule.
Galleries typically include anywhere between 50-100 photos for a Deluxe Session. The exact amount varies from session to session. Your online gallery will come loaded with fully edited high resolution images you can print anywhere. You’re also welcome to share your photos on social media as long as you credit Heather O'Steen Photography.
Fantastic! To reserve your portrait date, send me an email and I will send you a link to my scheduling calendar. Next, I will send you a general liability contract to e-sign as well as your invoice to secure your date on my calendar.
This is one of the best parts! Since I have been in business for 17 years now, my vast experience and efficient workflow means you get your images MUCH faster than most photographers turn around time. It is not unusual to receive your entire portrait gallery within 24-48 hours from your session. I guarantee a two week delivery, but typically it is MUCH quicker.
