Your Children – Connect with them, Celebrate with them, Dream with them….

I want you to remember the unique & wonderful connections you have with each of your children. Remember who they are now and let them dream of who they will become in the future. They are your legacy. 


Children feel a sense of belonging and positive self perception of themselves when they see themselves on the walls of their family home.

Award-winning Christchurch portrait photographer Maria Buhrkuhl will photograph and create heirloom artworks of your growing children for you to adore and remember them how they were at this age for years to come. These artworks will become the most precious objects you and your children own. Let them see themselves through your eyes and discover how precious and beautiful they are in this world.  

Any stage of your child’s life is important and significant. Popular times for Parents and Grandparents to have Artworks created of their children are – leaving preschool, starting school, birthdays, graduating a school level such as Junior School to Intermediate, starting High-school, finishing and achieving exams, school balls/dances, graduating High-school, starting University, moving away from the family home, going overseas, getting a first job. There may be other significant moments or events when you want to celebrate and remember your children.
