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!

happy clients

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.

Sometimes you just need a different perspective! This family is so special and has SO MUCH personality that it was easy - and totally fitting - to create a portrait that was just a bit unexpected. You can tell that Big Sister is used to ruling the roost, and that she has Daddy totally wrapped around her little finger. But check out Little Brother and how he steals the show!! So. Much. Cuteness! Dad had been deployed for quite a long time, missing his son’s first birthday. This portrait was months in the making as we planned clothing, feeling, etc in preparation for his return. The portrait session was top on the To Do list when he came back. So privileged to be able to document just a bit of their special story. ❤️

Thanks to all of our amazing clients for such a special 2019. So looking forward to an incredible 2020 with @sonyalpha and big future plans! ...

Let me let you in on a little secret: Your parents called. All they want for Christmas is a portrait with their grandkids. We have Gift Certificates. How easy was that? Your'e welcome.

All fun aside, I'm so excited to share this image of the beautiful-inside-and-out Donna Moyer with her handsome husband and two ADORABLE grandbabies!!!! I'm so glad she treated herself to a little Christmas gift of her own and I can't WAIT until this beautiful portrait is hanging in her home. There is something so special about the relationship between grandparents and their grandchildren. It's really magical. Sometimes grandmas tell me that they don’t want to be photographed because they don’t like how they've aged, they don't like what they weigh, etc. To that I say, this portrait is for THEM, the grandchildren. One day, this will be a treasure that they'll have to remind them of the special times you shared. They won't be judging the lines on your face, or the shape of your figure. They will look at that portrait and say, "This. This is where I come from. This is who helped make me who I am." It will mean the world to them. Don’t deny them that gift.

I’ve shared plenty of images of this sweet boy’s little sister, but I finally got to do a session of just him a few weeks ago and I just love that I can now spotlight him and his favorite past time! Noah is the kindest young man, and doing this special shoot for him was a blast. As usual, Mama was all in, and ordered this fantastic jersey to fit right in with our Black Label set. I love it...and him! ❤️⚾️ #sigmontaylor #stpblacklabel #bebold

These sisters are not only beautiful, they are so, so, so sweet and fun to be around. I felt so grateful to be able to dress them up, watch them dance, and photograph them in a way that would show the special relationship they have as twins. I can’t wait until next time!

Meet Tripp. Possibly the cutest chocolate lab puppy you ever did see. It was so fun to be able to photograph him at just three months old! That face, those eyes ... how can your heart not swoon when you look at this portrait?? Thanks, @lauradeeds , for bringing him in!!! ❤️ .

It was such a special privilege to create this handsome little guy's official One Year portrait. Mama knew she wanted something beautiful that would stand the test of time and, one day, be passed down through the generations of their family. It truly means so much to us when a new client joins our Sigmon Taylor family and understands the value of what we are able to create for them, and what it will mean to their family over the years. It makes our job so sweet! ❤️⁠
