Like a fine painting, a fine photographic study preserves a moment, a mood, a time, a place…held in memory, kept forever. Portraits by Curt and Andrea Sanders are created with imagination and sensitivity, sketched int the mind’s eye before they appear in the lens. The result is a reflection of life-with beauty that is limited only by your imagination. The Sanders have a philosophy that they can’t photograph everyone…but everyone should have a portrait. With the style and sensitivity of a portrait designer and the ability to interact personally and artistically with each client, the artists are able to create award winning images.
