Introducing one our new contributing photographers, Stephanie Hosszu! She hails from Vancouver, WA and is passionate about photography. Enjoy her bio below and welcome her to the team of WhoIsBeautiful!
Stephanie Hosszu has had a camera in her hand since she can remember. Digging through her parents pictures from the 80’s you will find many prints of stuffed animals posed on chairs and holding props. From those humble beginnings she began a journey to become the professional photographer she is today. She is the face behind Stephanie D Photography which can be found online at www.stephaniedphoto.com
Stephanie is thrilled that God has brought her to Whoisbeautiful.org. She first realized that her camera could be a ministry to women, when she was doing a shoot at the Portland Rescue Mission’s center for women and children. She was taking pictures of a young woman who was a former drug addict and prostitute. As she showed the girl the small screen of her camera, the girl started crying and said “I am beautiful!” You see, this girl knew that God was changing her on the inside, but she still saw herself as the prostitute and drug user on the outside. When Stephanie realized that she had a small part in helping this woman’s mindset change to how God saw her, she knew that this was the ministry God was leading her towards.
Stephanie resides in the beautiful Pacific Northwest where there is a picture waiting to be taken around every corner. She has three children ages 12, 8 and 4 and a husband of almost 15 years. When she isn’t taking pictures she enjoys reading, catching up with friends on facebook and relaxing with her family.
