One of my favorite parts of being a photographer is the opportunity I am given to be able to enter into others' most intimate spaces of their lives. The first moments in their newborns' lives, their baby now taking their senior portraits just moments before they fly from the nest, or the day two people fully commit themselves to each other in love, to capture it is eternal. Being able to gift my clients with images that freeze these timeless and treasured moments in time is like handing over a tangible memory. This is what photography is all about to me. I'm in love with what I do for a living. Capturing emotion, connections between people, a tender touch, documenting all of life and showing others how beautiful they are and how precious every moment can be - this is the WHY behind the reason I do what I do, this is what drives my soul.

Welcome to

heather o'steen photography



I'm a family, lifestyle and wedding photographer, educator, wife, mom, and amateur but enthusiastic home decorator! I'm so happy you landed here in my little corner of the internet!  I'm a born and bred southern girl but have lived in Maryland since 1999 with my husband of 27 years, our three beautiful daughters and our three fur-babies. I picked up my first DSLR camera in 2006 to be able to document the fleeting moments of my growing baby girls.  That began a passionate pursuit to learn anything and everything about photography which eventually pointed me toward my dream job.  I have learned how to run my small business over the past ten years, how to discover who I am as an artist, and how to use my natural gifts to bring joy and beauty into other's lives. I can't wait to serve you and show you just how beautiful you are!

hey y'all!

"Throughout the years the children have become so comfortable with Heather that often times they forget she is even taking their picture. She knows their personalities, and even calls them by their nicknames. She is not only incredibly talented she is kind, gentle and thoughtful. Each year I think to myself, there is no way we are going to top this next year and somehow, we do. My hope is that Heather will continue to capture my family year after year and when the time comes for one or all of them to walk down the aisle…she will be there as a friend and our photographer."

"I have been hiring Heather as our photographer for over a decade. From casual family photos, graduation pictures, an amazing wedding and an adorable newborn session, Heather has been there to capture our family's most treasured moments. She is easy to work with and her creativity and talent is incredible. I would definitely recommend her for your next special event.​"

“Our photographer Heather is an artist, through and through. She has an eye for beauty and detail. Her aesthetic taste is refined and classic, but never dull.”

“Heather is a sensitive observer of people and their relationships, helping her capture the ‘story’ of the moment. From subtle side-long glances of affection, to all-out belly-laughs among a group of old friends, to the winsome antics of children, Heather sees those special moments and preserves them.” 

"She sees the beauty in everything and working with her is easy because she has the most calming and charming professional attitude!"

Investing in professional portraiture is one of the most important investments we can make. Our family portraits hold a very dear place in our hearts, and being intentional about capturing important milestones in our lives is often overlooked.  I feel honored to be able to share and capture such special times with families and to be able to watch their families grow.  We will never look back with regret when we stop for a moment and make time stand still with the wonder of photography. So take a look around here and once you decide to hire me, know that you can feel confident that I can capture your most treasured moments and what we all want to remember the most. Whether it's the tiny details of your newborn baby, your little girl twirling in the grass, your son throwing rocks into a stream, your full of personality senior who is about to jump from the nest and begin college, or the generations of a family all together to share a special moment, it will be forever documented.

Investment for each session type includes:

- 90 minute portrait session

- Pinterest style online portrait gallery
