She has a 4-year-old daughter and another baby on the way. Now she's sharing pics from her pregnancy photo shoot to help anyone with scars realize they can feel empowered and beautiful.

Grant started the organization Beyond Scars for just that reason: to help burn survivors build self-esteem and confidence. This photo shoot practices exactly what she preaches—and it makes us think of the ways we could do a better job loving ourselves.
