(NBC) - Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords has released the first photographs taken of her since being shot in the head in January.
The pictures were taken at TIRR Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston by a professional photographer.
One photo shows Giffords smiling directly at the camera and the other photo is a candid shot of Giffords and her mother. Giffords posted the photos early Sunday morning on her facebook page.
Giffords was shot in the head on January 8, during an assassination attempt. She is recovering at a rehabilitation center in Houston and may go home by the end of June.
