Playing quietly, to herself,
In a graceful expression,
Always moving smoothly,
Softly caressing the keys, as one would thin glass

She stretches, touching the last chord, fingertips quivering.
Relieved, then, satisfied is
Natalie is a lovely little concert pianist whose portraits we created a few weeks back. She is a serious student of her craft and I look forward to watching her shine, stretch and satisfy the world with her music in the years to come. Portraits taken at a private residence in Anaheim.
