Meet Bonnie, A Loving Mother And A Sex Worker (NSFW)
I first met Bonnie while I was doing a project on my final semester of school," photographer Marie Hald explained in an email to The Huffington Post.

What I really wanted to find was a woman with a family, living a 'normal' life. And so I found Bonnie."
