About Alicia Juniku,
Wilmington, North Carolina Photographer
There are days when I cannot stand but to crawl around on my hands and knees, camera at the ready, searching for inspiration and seeking out beauty. I am a Wilmington North Carolina Photographer, and I am a co-founding member of the USA branch of the Juniku Family, along side my best friend and husband. We have two healthy and much-loved daughters. The oldest is almost 7, quick witted, temperamental, and intensely observant. Our second daughter is just a few months old, and she is such a joyful little person! Her hobbies include spitting up and bringing things to her gummy mouth to chew on. Also included in our family are Strauss and Tito, two German Shepherd Dogs. Tito is an old soul and so very loving, Strauss is still a puppy and is learning his manners….slowly. : )
I am something of a minimalist, I am a breastfeeding advocate, I try to keep it simple. I am ridiculously tall, I believe in equal treatment of all people, and there are few things I like more than watching sheets on a clothes line swaying in the breeze. My family and I live in Wilmington, North Carolina, but I was born and raised in the Willamette Valley of Oregon. I do believe a part of my heart will always be on the rocky northern Pacific coast.
For photographers: I work with a Nikon D800 and D850, Sigma ART 50mm 1.4, and Nikkor 70-200mm 2.8.
