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.

Calling all dancers...💃🏻 ⁠
I'm always amazed at the dedication dancers have to their craft. The countless rehearsals, endless hours of practicing. They move differently, hear music differently, and have an undeniable grace about them. I love photographing them - of course, they move beautifully - but also they're always up for something fun and funky. I get to flex my creative muscles while they flex their actual muscles 😉. Match made in heaven!⁠

What's this about snakes and snails and puppy dog tails?? Not this little guy! I mean, look at that sweet expression! Mama is going to be so glad she has this wall portrait to reflect on when he hits those crazy teenage years ... it's sure to remind her that her sweet little boy is still in there. ❤️⁠

Because, even portrait photographers want and need their family portraits made. I love this image that Michael Taylor created SO MUCH!!!! I cannot WAIT to hang it above our sofa so that we can smile and laugh as we pass it every day. It warms my heart so much. Family ... it comes in many different shapes and sizes ... and it is EVERYTHING. It's what keeps us grounded, going, and it reminds us of what we do it all for. At the end of the day, these three are my whole heart, and this portrait is priceless to me. ❤️

”The greatest gift our parents ever gave us was each other.” – Unknown

We first met the Celli's when they commissioned us to create First Communion portraits of their youngest, shortly after they moved here. Now, all these years later, it was great to see them again, all together, with children who are now knocking on the doors of adulthood. Kacie, a graduate of CNU, is running the show at their new family business, Celli's Chocolate Chips - which, if you haven't checked them out, RUN, don’t walk. Sean is finishing up at CNU and plans on being a pediatrician. Christopher is back at the Citadel, and Noelle is closing in on the end of high school.
As portrait photographers, we're so blessed to witness the stories of our family's lives. We have the privilege of seeing who our Littles grow up to be, and even meet their own Littles one day. We never grow tired of it, and we most certainly never take for granted that this is what we get to do, every day.

My favorite part of this particular image is the story it tells of the siblings' relationship. As they've grown, each of them has their own voice, but they're all still undeniably connected. Each of them individually looks amazing, but the group together looks incredible. This is the power of the portrait.

It was a beautiful thing to witness the strength of the bond this family has, and a gift to be able to document it for them, and their future generations. ❤️

Gosh, it’s been an awful long time since I’ve posted! We’ve been so busy that I haven’t carved out time share what we’ve been up to! This is a favorite of mine from a session a few weeks back. I promised this dynamic duo that if they listened really well for the family portrait, I would let them do some special twirling shots at the end. This was taken right as I got them into position but before I said, “Go!” As you can see, the littlest one couldn’t wait to get started. I love that sweet expression of mischief as she looks at her big sister. These girls were absolutely precious!! ❤️

New headshot for some upcoming speaking events! So, so blessed to be able to do what we love to do, share it with other professional photographers around the country, and do it all with the best guy in the world. A little older than when we first started 12 years ago, but I wouldn't have it any other way. ❤️
