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.

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.⁠

I'm exhausted, deliriously grateful and still processing.
I just got back from a whirlwind weekend trip to NYC as Sony's guest, and my world is still spinning! The most amazing thing that has ever happened to me (career-wise) happened Friday night.
I am so incredibly honored to share that I was chosen as a Sony 2020 Alpha Female Creator-In-Residence!! Over 6000 applicants ... 6 were chosen (4 photographers and 2 filmmakers), and I am the only portrait photographer.

It's no exaggeration to say that this is life-changing. I really don’t have the words to express how much this means and how much of an honor it is. I spent all day yesterday trying to process it all - I think I'm still in shock. There are sooooo many incredible opportunities that lie ahead, including learning from - and with - amazing artists, and the introduction to an international audience.

I can’t wait to share the journey with you as we go. Until then, you can read more here:

The icing on the top of the cake, was that Michael was able to be there for the announcement .... and it was the 14th anniversary of our first meeting. So, so grateful for this crazy journey we share together. ❤️

These two lovebirds came all the way from Memphis to have their portrait made...what an honor. Keith and Donna have been a part of our photography family for years and years and they have two of the biggest hearts you could imagine.
Donna told me she wanted a portrait that would truly capture their love in a soft, intimate way. There's no pressure like photographing photographers(!) ... but I love what we created together. Even more, I love the fact that they asked us to be the ones to create it for them.❤️
