First Shower Sequence

I've been home with my mother after her breast cancer surgery, and today she took off her bandages and took a shower. Unexpectedly, she asked that I photograph her. This first shower after surgery was wonderful.

oh amanda... i'm very impressed with both you and your mom's ability to be so open about this. i love the first one... the look on her face says it all - while the scars on her breast just fill in the gaps... i can't wait to see you tomorrow.
