Photographers Monica Sigmon and Michael Taylor

WE BELIEVE IN THE POWER OF A PORTRAIT

We believe that a fine-art portrait can change the way you feel about yourself

That portraits should hang in your home as art

Art that reminds you of what’s most important in life – what you do it all for

We are thrilled with the way in which Michael & Monica were able to capture the life and heart of our family.  Through their animation and patience they were able to engage our four young children, making the session a delight. The portraits were stunning, unlike any we’ve ever owned, and we will hang them on our walls for years to come!

Monica and Michael have been our family photographers for over a decade.  They have captured images of three generations that I will cherish for the rest of my life.  From backyard shots of our immediate family (including a litter of puppies) to graduation pictures of my kids to an incredibly well orchestrated Christmas Eve session with 23 members of our extended clan, I will forever be grateful to them for the memories.  Because their work isn’t just about family portraits.  Those images will be treasured by our family for years to come and will help us to remember the best times of our lives.

I’ve worked with Sigmon Taylor Photography for more than three years.  Each time I need new photography, Michael is my “go to” expert.  Not only is the quality of the finished product stunning, the photographs convey the emotion that’s so hard for most photographers to capture.  Michael develops an instant rapport with his subjects and creates a trust that makes everyone feel like their images are in the best possible hands.

Two weeks ago, I photographed Bekah, the owner of En Pointe Dance Academy, with her two girls - Charlotte (15) and Emersyn (1.5). Seeing the three of them dance together was absolutely beautiful and we created so many amazing images I can’t wait to share. These are Charlotte’s feet and this is actually just a portion of the larger image. Check out the next post to see Miss Emersyn’s.

“I love you and that’s the beginning and end of everything.” – F. Scott Fitzgerald⁠

This gorgeous couple came to the studio for a family session with their daughter, Caroline, and the portraits are beautiful. They share such a special bond and I'll post one of those images soon. But first, I wanted to share this beautiful mom and dad by themselves. I think it's sometimes hard for parents to slow down and take the time to appreciate and remember the love they share for each other. Life gets hectic and kids' schedules are crazy. Additionally, most moms don’t love to be photographed, and this mom was no different. But one of the most special moments of the session was hearing dad tell her how beautiful she was. I love that this will hang in their home in addition to their family portrait, because I believe it will be a constant reminder of the love that began their family in the first place. ❤️⁠

Oooooooooooh, I have been counting the minutes until I could post this image!! I can’t tell you what a complete joy it was working with these twin dancers. There really is something so magical about the bond between twins ... the way they communicate, the way they move, the awareness they always have of each other ... it's unlike anything else. To be able to document a little bit of that story within the framework of dance was an absolute thrill. These sweet girls were SO easy to work with, and a true joy to be around. I am so grateful to be able to work with amazing people and create art every day!!

So delighted I got to meet - and photograph - beautiful Makenzie before she headed off to Morocco! I love the quiet confidence she possesses ... a true beauty inside and out, just like her mama!⁠

Beautiful Bethany, inside and out. A sweet soul and talented dancer, I had the best time photographing her! Dancers are so committed to their craft, it's a joy to create portraits that celebrate that.⁠
