ready to capture your
art of dance in portraits?

We enjoy creating powerful and unique photographs that capture the grace, strength and soul of the dancer which are designed to visually inspire and captivate.

We work intimately with each dancer in our very own "pas de deux" movement - the dancer and the photographer working together to create a beautiful work of art.

dance is the hidden language of the soul.

"After our first session with Heather, I knew we'd never need another photographer! Not only does Heather capture incredible photos but she's a Mom and knows how to capture those little moments that mean a whole lot. Every photo session with Heather is relaxed and fun but with the perfect amount of posing direction which is the perfect combination to catch the true essence of our family and my little dancer! Heather has become so important to our family and we hope she never puts that camera down!"

"If you are looking for a talented, professional and fun dance photographer, I highly recommend Heather O’Steen Photography. Heather is truly the best dance photographer to work with. As a dance mom herself, she understands dance poses, angles, and how to capture the passion of dance. My daughter has been working with her for a few years and each shoot is more creative and beautiful than the last. Heather helps my daughter come alive in front of the camera, she offers suggestions when needed and works collaboratively to create lasting memories. "

"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!
