I am so happy for all of Facebookland to know my dear and exquisitely beautiful friend, Erin Schreiber. She is my stand partner in the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, which means that I get to hear her masterful playing up close, EVERY week!!! She is the most beautiful violinist… I am so lucky! What could possibly be more inspiring? I’ll tell you! At the core of this stunning woman is a heart full of kindness, humility, and warmth. I have never known a truer friend, and honestly I feel so blessed that she is a part of my life. I love her so dearly, and I hope you will enjoy these photos that showcase her exceptional beauty!!

Heidi Harris {Violin meets Yoga}

Something fun has happened in my adulthood that I never expected, which is that I have found my first “hobby” or passion other than the violin – in photography.  As a younger person, people would ask me all the time what my “hobbies” were, and I would usually come up blank!  I have so enjoyed the freedom and time (my very supportive husband has allowed me!) to pursue this new skill…

Heidi Harris is a colleague of mine in the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra (where she is Associate Concertmaster) whose pursuit of excellence in other disciplines has been a great inspiration to me for many years!  Heidi is not only an excellent violinist, but also a fabulous yoga instructor, and in these photos we get to see how beautifully the two can go together.  This photo shoot was such a blast for me — such a beautiful subject, posing so elegantly, on a gorgeous day in Forest Park!  What could be better?!
