"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!

kind words from past clients

Absolutely! Included with every booked session, is my exclusive Portrait Session Style Guide customized to your exact kind of portraits. This guide gives you tips on choosing clothing, location and much more.  As each dancer is unique - 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.

FAQ

This is one of the best parts!  Since I have been in business for 15 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.
