Welcome to my new blog. I am Lonna Ponce, owner of Ponce's Portraits, located in Elk Grove, CA. I love being a portrait and wedding photographer because I love being able to give people tangible memories to cherish for their entire lives. As a photographer I touch many lives and it is really rewarding to get comments like this recent one I received on facebook from one of my favorite clients, Terri:
"Hi Lonna, don't know if you got my phone message...but the photos of the kids are just beautiful! The one of Hank is so perfect that it took my breath away. I am teary-eyed just thinking about it. You truly captured their inner beauty and fun personalities! You even made Jeff and I look good! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! We will treasure these pictures...always! xoxo"
Terri is a great Mom of three beautiful children, one of which is fighting a disease called Parry Romberg Syndrom: an extremely rare, progressive, "incurable" auto-immune disease that causes facial atrophy...meaning it causes half the face to "waste" away. Hank is incredibly brave and you can just feel the love in their family. I was honored to host a fundraiser on their behalf.
