Juliana Wiklund is a much loved and skilled photographer who specialises in photographing children and families. Her trademark is warm and happy images of people who communicate their feelings and presence in an authentic way.
Juliana has adopted an emerging portrait-based photographic genre that celebrates and emphasises the importance of a relationship -
