Capturing the beauty of motion & creating community over competition
"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!"
"..... I knew we'd never need another photographer."
ready to tell your dance story?
Your dancer has put in countless hours perfecting the beautiful art and technique of dance. Not to mention all the time and money spent as parents helping your dancer discover their passion and confidence on stage! Forever preserve this precious time in their lives while helping them gain confidence and show them how beautiful and talented they really are. One of the best parts of dance portrait sessions is showing the dancer the back of the camera and hearing "Wow - I didn't know I looked that good!" Priceless.

Heather offers specialty sessions throughout the year as special events. Be sure and sign up for the VIP list so you are first to know about them - they typically sell out within hours.

"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!"

the investment guide
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.
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 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.
