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.

A few weeks ago, I shared a portrait of the Celli children (scroll back if you missed it!). Today I get to share the image of their entire family that will soon hang in their home. Working with them was such a special event. This family is tiiiiight. They joked, they laughed, but you can tell that they have each other's backs to the death. Seeing both mom and dad tear up as they saw the images for the first time was just beautiful. I'm so glad we were the ones chose to capture the special time in their lives.⁠⠀

"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched – they must be felt with the heart.” -Helen Keller⁠

We are so thankful to have met this sweet family. The Longs are an absolute delight to be around. Yalonda's amazing and feisty heart, little Christian's curiosity and love for his parents, and Cleon - the rock of the family, the protector. Let's not forget little Snoopy ... well you can see for yourself the role he has in this little family!⁠

I still pinch myself that meeting beautiful families like the Longs and telling their stories is what we get to do for a living ... every day. We don’t take our responsibility lightly. And I know that we are better people for all of the incredible should we encounter along the way. ❤️⁠

How precious is this sweet angel?? Do you remember the days that twirly skirts and fancy shoes were all you were concerned with? (What am I saying - that's still the case for lots of us!)⁠⠀
⁠⠀
The expression on her face as she examines her shoes, the way her little foot is turned ... I can’t even. And don’t even get me started on her hair! Love everything about this little girl - especially her sweet heart. ❤️⁠⠀

Meet Samson ... and his humans! Seriously, I wish all of you could have been a fly on the wall during this session!! This beautiful Great Pyrenees is possibly the gentlest dog I’ve ever met...soooooo sweet! I first met Anne last year when she did the mortgage for our new house. She is a total pro and such a delight to work with. When she asked us to create a portrait of her family, I was thrilled to create something special for her. Her entire family was amazing to work with and we all absolutely fell in love with sweet Samson ❤️❤️⠀ #sigmontaylor #stpblacklabel #bebold⠀

A few more yummy fall colors! Even thoughts it’s still hot, hot, hot ... we know cooler temps are on the way when the phone are ringing with folks reserving one of our limited fall sessions! We’re even booking now for thanksgiving weekend - a great idea to create a beautiful portrait when all the family is together! And of course - the family 🐶 should always be a part of the festivities!⠀

It’s official! Fall is here and to celebrate, we thought we’d brighten up our feed a bit with a few of our favorite fall portraits from years past. There’s something so beautiful about the light this time of year - so soft and warm. The air is crisp and the anticipation of the holiday season begins. Families are gathering which makes it the perfect time to take advantage of Virginia’s beautiful colors. The days are getting shorter, which means we only photograph one outside session a day...have you scheduled yours yet?
