Creating a portrait in the space that is the heart of your family, and means the most to you and yours, is always a great idea. Clients sometimes wonder whether their home would make a suitable backdrop, but you’d be surprised how much potential we can see that you might not be able to imagine. Often, we only need a tiny vignette to create something truly special and unique.


P.S. We’re excellent at moving furniture around to set the perfect scene, and we promise we’ll put it back!

Our Process Includes

  • 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.

  • I first met Monica at a special event that Sigmon Taylor Photography was doing to raise money for the Norfolk SPCA.  Her work was absolutely gorgeous, like nothing I had ever encountered.  My pups have had sessions with Michael and her multiple times over the last 4 years, and every time I am in awe of the outcome.  They both have amazing skill with the camera and an incredible knowledge of photography so that the result is a quality that is simply unparalleled.  I don’t hesitate to drive over an hour to Williamsburg to use their studio. Their professionalism and philanthropy toward animals has made me a client for life.

  • Monica and Michael are simply amazing!!! My last two professional headshots were taken by Monica, she has a way of making you look 10 years younger….I always get so many compliments. They also did a family portrait for us in Colonial Williamsburg, I have it hanging on the wall in our new house…this is something I have wanted to do for years and I can’t help but smile every time I walk by it. Because we love Monica and Michael so much, we had them do portraits of our fur babies Declan and Galen, they look so sophisticated hanging in the “Man Cave”. Thank you, thank you for always surpassing my expectations!!
