The Beauty Project - Rosemarie

Rosemarie is another lovely lady that I have known for many years who applied to take part in The Beauty Project.  We attended the same church and even worked together on the kitchen team for awhile!  I was really pleased when she nominated her daughter-in-law for The Beauty Project and then signed herself up as well!   We had a great time at her session and created some gorgeous portraits for her.  Please enjoy her beautiful images and her story.
