Araceli Farms Dixon Family Session


The Montano family photo session at Araceli Farms in Dixon was so gorgeous! We explored the farm’s lush lavender fields, which made our session smell absolutely heavenly. Not only did we get to capture some sweet moments of this young family, but we also photographed Vanessa’s exciting announcement!

About the family

Vanessa and her husband Tony faced the silent struggle that so many couples unfortunately must battle with. This is the battle of conceiving naturally. They had dreams of raising a large family of their own, but mother nature got in the way and broke their hearts. After the birth of their daughter Sophia, the couple tried for another baby. They were so excited to find out in 2016 that they were pregnant with a baby boy! But their hopes and dreams soon came tumbling down with the loss of that pregnancy. They managed to pull their broken heart together and try again via IVF. Thankfully the treatment was a success and they had their second baby, Vivienne. Vanessa and Tony never forgot the loss of their angel baby boy, and recently found out that IVF blessed them with another successful pregnancy- a boy! To say that this family is excited is an understatement, and I’m so excited to see their beautiful family grow!

Vanessa, Tony, Sophia, Vivienne

Montano family- thank you so much for allowing me to capture this sweet time in your lives! I had a blast with photographing your Araceli Farms family photo session in Dixon. Vanessa, you were positively glowing with that blessed bundle of joy growing in your tummy! Tony, it was such a pleasure to see you interact so sweetly with your daughters- I can tell you are a fantastic father! And Sophia & Vivienne- you girls could not be any more beautiful if you tried! Thank you so much for your beautiful smiles! I’m so excited for this next chapter in your family’s life. Congrats again on baby number 3!

Thank you!
