Location portraits allow a unique layer of personality and storytelling to play a role in your portrait. Not only are they interesting visually, but every time you look at that portrait you’ll think of the happy times you spent there together. As artists, we love photographing in new environments because it give us a chance to flex our creative muscles as the location really becomes a secondary subject. Portraits on location will be a beautiful reminder of where you were at this time in your life for years to come.

  • 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.
