Hello Beautiful

Guest Blog - Meet Johnie | Vision of Rose Photography


IMG_2268 Hello! My name is Johnie D'Anne Cochran and I am a 2015 VRP Spokesmodel. I am 32 years old, born and raised in Hopewell, VA. I have been happily married to my wonderful husband for 10 years and I have an amazing 12 year old son! I currently work for myself and am going to school to be a Social Worker.

I have a passion for people. I love people and believe in humanity. I enjoy meeting different people and getting to know more about their beliefs and cultures. I enjoy helping people whenever I can. I believe in 'Pay It Foward" and try to do it as much as possible. I am a great listener and consider myself to be a great friend.
Like anyone else, I have had my shares of struggles. In 2005 I was diagnosed with Cervical Cancer. After treatments, several surgeries and medications, I beat it and am able to concentrate on re-building my mind and body. Due to my illness, I lost TONS of weight and have been unable to gain it back. I have been so unhappy with myself and my body because of this. But, FINALLY with the help of wonderful friends and family, I am at a great place with myself. I will struggle with this every day of my life, but it is gets easier and easier every day. I can finally put something on and say "I am beautiful" because I feel beautiful. For 2015 I hope to help other women with their struggles. I want other women to feel like I do now and know that they are not alone. I want them to have the same confidence that I do and know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.
I am honored to be a VRP Spokesmodel. I believe in Rosey and in her Vision. I support her belief that every woman should feel beautiful and know they are beautiful. I love the variety and style of her photos. Vision of Rose stands for more than a beautiful woman with her hair and make up done and you see that in each photo that Rosey takes.
Thanks and I look forward to an exciting year! Johnie
