Photographer/Studio Manager

A lover of photography since she was a teenager, Juliana has worked to turn her passion into a business over the last decade.  Specializing in photographing natural light portraits of women, she works with her clients to understand and achieve the goals for their session, and guide them in a way that puts them at ease in front of the camera to showcases their natural beauty.  “Women, and especially mothers, are often the archivists in their families’ lives.  We document other people – our children for example – but find a million excuses not to get in front of the camera and document ourselves.  I want to help change that.  I think you are beautiful.  I think you are enough, right now.  I want you to exist in photographs for yourself and for the people you love.”

Juliana is a mother to two very busy boys, 1 and 4 years old.  When she’s not chasing after them, she loves to read, practice yoga and go for walks.  She loves a great cup of coffee or a glass of wine enjoyed with friends.  She is originally from PEI, and looks forward to visiting family and friends there each summer.
