PORTRAIT STUDIO creating INTIMATE, NATURAL, DEEPLY AUTHENTIC, TRULY BEAUTIFUL, AND POWERFUL PORTRAIT ART, through TRANSFORMATIVE, WHOLE DAY EXPERIENCES.
EXPLORE OUR (2) EXCLUSIVE PORTRAIT EXPERIENCES + IMAGE COLLECTIONS BELOW
REASONS TO EXPERIENCE ONE OF OUR PORTRAIT EXPERIENCES:
1. YOU FEEL GREAT, OR PRETTY GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF, AND YOU WANT TO CELEBRATE, CAPTURE IT.
2. YOU DON'T FEEL THAT GREAT, OR EVEN GOOD ABOUT YOURSELF, AND YOU WANT TO DO IT ANYWAY.
I DON'T photograph your weight, or extra weight. I DON'T photograph your wrinkles. I DON'T photograph your blemishes. I DON'T photograph your big nose, or thin hair, big thighs, or big behind. I DON'T PHOTOGRAPH YOUR IMPERFECTIONS.
I'm actually not even a photographer, really. I AM MORE OF A PHILOSOPHER OF RELATIONSHIPS, CONNECTION, AND BEAUTY.
If I meet you, I don't see you as a flat static image, with a million physical imperfections. I SEE YOU AS A PERSON , WITH A PERSONALITY, WITH YOUR UNIQUE WAY OF NEGOTIATING YOURSELF, YOUR RELATIONSHIPS, AND THE SPACE AROUND YOU. You may be one of the many people who runs from being photographed, because you believe a photograph is a magnifier or all of your physical imperfections, and it can be, if done in that way.
BUT MY JOB, PASSION, AND TALENT IS TO SEE BEYOND THAT. I SEE AND FOCUS ON YOUR EMOTIONS, EXPRESSION, AND SUBTLE MOVEMENTS, AS YOU CONNECT TO THE SPACE AROUND YOU, AND NEGOTIATE YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO ME, AND MY CAMERA, AND I GUIDE YOU TO A PLACE WHERE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE, AND SAFE. I GENTLY GUIDE YOUR PHYSICAL SELF TO START SERVING, AND SUPPORTING YOUR PERSONALITY, THE HIGHEST QUALITIES OF YOUR MIND, AND HEART, AND ALL OF YOUR SUCCESSES, AND TALENTS.

WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING...
"Stefania's presence, like her photos, says a thousand words. She is a deep woman, with a TALENT for PHOTOGRAPHY that is pure FIRE. Like many people, I DON’T really like having my photos taken, but when I met STEFANIA, I KNEW she was THE ONE to CAPTURE my NEW PORTRAITS. She made me FEEL totally COMFORTABLE, the whole time. When I received my images, I was OVERJOYED! I felt a CONFIDENCE that can only be felt with portraits like that!”
Nina R. Lomeo - Partner - Custom Planned Interiors
"I so LOVED the entire PROCESS that Stefania took me through in getting my photos. It was so UNLIKE ANYTHING I'd experienced. First, there was a STYLING and DESIGN CONSULTATION, where she really found out what EMOTION I wanted to CAPTURE with the photos. It was something I'd never thought of before, but she walked me through some questions to help me decide... I realized the emotion I wanted to capture was JOY. She then HELPED me think through the OUTFITS, COLORS, and OTHER DETAILS that would help me COMMUNICATE that FEELING. Next was the actual PHOTOSHOOT, WHAT FUN!!! It was a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE in itself. I got to FEEL LIKE A MOVIE STAR, with my handsome leading man. And then, the PHOTOS were EVERYTHING I'd wanted. BEAUTIFUL PRINTED TESTAMENTS to the JOY that I have for life!"
Sondra Harmon - Transformation and Relationship Expert
"Stefania is WONDERFUL to work with! She has a way of making you FEEL totally RELAXED in front of the camera, and CREATE an EXPERIENCE that is FUN. It's all about CELEBRATING WHO YOU REALLY ARE, at this moment in time. I thoroughly ENJOYED my time with Stefania, and I am DELIGHTED with the resulting photos."
Jane Gunn - International Mediator and Speaker
"What a WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE! Best photoshoot ever! You're so TALENTED, and it's so EASY to get BEAUTIFUL, NATURAL PICTURES with your GUIDANCE."
Jessica Pereira - Master Trainer at Test De La Passion
"Even though it is actually SELF-IMAGE (how you look to, and feel about YOURSELF), and not how you look in general, that determines your success, happiness, and fulfillment in life, we constantly look outside of ourselves, and compare ourselves to others, and so end up living inside this made-up belief of being too heavy, too skinny, too short, too tall, too shy, too loud, too imperfect, or even too perfect. We can never win this way... And so these made-up beliefs are passed on to our new generation of young women. Some go through a great deal of discomfort, and frustration, and develop an inauthentic, inflated sense of self-esteem, just to look good on camera, to others, and to the world. And others go through the same great deal of discomfort, and frustration, only to hide behind books, in a corner, or behind the heart-breaking idea that beauty is shallow anyway...”
Stefania Harangus - Owner - Stefania Harangus Portrait Photography
"But the truth is that REAL BEAUTY IS A FEELING, a feeling of CONNECTION to yourself, and the world. It always only comes from within you, from OPENING your heart to YOU. And YOU CAN, just as you love your child, or your pet, or your partner, YOU CAN LEARN TO LOVE YOURSELF, and treat yourself with immense patience, kindness, and compassion. You can learn to love, accept, and CELEBRATE YOUR BODY, the way it is right now, and EMPOWER a new generation of YOUNG WOMEN TO LOVE THEMSELVES FULLY."
(Bonus: funnily enough, once you love yourself as you are, going to the gym will be easy - go figure :))
Stefania Harangus - Owner - Stefania Harangus Portrait Photography
"My daughter had a WONDERFUL time, and DID NOT WANT TO LEAVE... She FELT so SPECIAL during her photo session. The pictures we received were PHENOMENAL. I'm so GRATEFUL that my daughter had the OPPORTUNITY to participate in these PHOTO SESSIONS for YOUNG WOMEN, which I believe take a UNIQUE and BRILLIANT PERSPECTIVE on something that is CRUCIAL, and RELEVANT during these years of our daughter's life [SELF-ESTEEM]. Thank you!"
Candice Coffing Whitton - Psychologist and Mom
"My mom and I did a shoot with Stefania when my mom came to VISIT me. We LIVE ON OPPOSITE COASTS, and we DON'T get to SEE EACH OTHER as often as I would like, so when she came to visit, we wanted to DO SOMETHING SPECIAL, to COMMEMORATE our weekend TOGETHER. Being PHOTOGRAPHED by Stefania was such a GREAT EXPERIENCE! Not only are the PHOTOS BEAUTIFUL, but the TIME we spent in the studio was COMFORTABLE and RELAXED. Stefania utilizes her EXPERTISE in photography to EMPOWER her CLIENTS. She provided us with STYLING ADVICE, and the BEST LIGHTING, and then CAPTURED us in a way that was NATURAL, and AUTHENTIC. I would ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND Stefania, because I TRUST her to CREATE a GREAT EXPERIENCE, and provide QUALITY PHOTOS."
Ingrid Johansen - Project Manager
"Stefania not only took AMAZING PICTURES of my MOTHER and I, but she made the EXPERIENCE ENJOYABLE, and MEMORABLE. The photos were BEAUTIFUL, and Stefania was able to CAPTURE both our PERSONALITIES."
Jacqueline Engel - Financial Advisor
"This is a photo of me and I more than LOVE it! It's my FAVORITE PHOTO of myself of ALL TIME!!! I feel like Stefania captured ALL of me in this one photo. Her work is AMAZING. The problem is that there are at least a DOZEN OTHER PHOTOS, with different moods, looks, and poses, that are EQUALLY GREAT. My friends, and colleagues are each lobbying for their favorite. What a problem to have: too many WONDERFUL HEADSHOTS to choose from! Thank you, Stefania!"
