Hey there, I'm Heather and welcome to my little corner of the internet!  I believe in real moments and the kinds of images that not only tell a story, but take you back to a certain moment in time and make you FEEL something. I believe in portraits that are just itching to be printed, placed in beautiful frames and hung on walls for generations to enjoy, not lost on your phone or worse, left floating alone in the cloud.

Stunning Photos

I began photographing my first baby girl back in 1995.  As our family grew with two more little girls, my love for photography grew as well. Capturing the details of their day along with their beauty is what led to a deep passion for capturing the simplest and grandest moments of our lives. 

Whenever I pick up my camera, I strive to create beautiful and emotional images that tell a story and showcase the beauty of both the people in the images and the world around them. 

Even with it's ups and downs, your life and your story are beautiful and I can't wait to create images that show you that!

That's Us!  

I began my professional photography business in 2007 capturing newborns and families. Back then my business went by the name Timeless & Treasured Photography.  Several of my clients have been with me since the beginning and it has been an honor to document decades of their lives. 

My youngest daughter's deep passion for ballet is what led me to begin photographing dancers.   When her passion and mine collided, a beautiful thing happened - Heather O'Steen Dancers!  Capturing a grand jeté at its perfect peak is a challenge is nothing short of exhilarating. 

My three girls are now almost grown, one is married, one just graduated college, one is in high school, and I have been married for 30 years!  I know first hand how fleeting these beautiful life moments can be and documenting them for you is an honor.

My Girls 

I value taking the time to get to know each dancer and family that I work with so that I can best tell the story of their lives. Get ready to fill your walls with images that will make you and your family smile for years to come.

You're in the right place.

and a photo experience that is as easy as checking into a five star hotel?

looking for images that are beautiful and emotive?

are you ready to capture your story?

I have developed a great passion for showing others just how much they are loved, appreciated and accepted for exactly who they are, and that they were built to belong - in your family, in your community, and in photographs with your loved ones. That passion somehow translates into the photos that I take, I want to capture the beauty of exactly who you are, right now. Because you will never be just like this ever again.  After being a mom for 27 years, there is a certain gift that comes along with knowing those tiny little details and moments that our own eyes seem to miss, and capturing them forever for the families that I serve.  Being a dance mom myself, I understand not only how to photograph dancers, but how to connect with them as well, which is arguably the most important aspect of photographing dancers.
