Beauty Scar

This is a photograph of my daughter, who went through spinal fusion surgery. Being a photographer, she wanted me to document the post scar, as she was and is very proud in the beauty of it. It is her battle scar. She went through some pretty horrific and difficult times encountering idiopathic scoliosis at her tender age, emotionally and physically. She wanted the world to see it.
