Yas, a little person with big joy and big jumps

Yas photographed by Eyoalha Baker for Jump for Joy Photo Project and Palm Springs Cultural Center Artist Residency

This little one stole my heart immediately. And boy can she jump!

Words from Yas when asked about her experience of jumping for joy: Joy is Play. Fun. It was beautiful.

Also, when it was her mother’s turn to jump… “She jumps so high!” – on repeat 🙂

I’m told by her mother Pouneh that hours after the jumping photo session Yas was still talking about jumping.

Thank you YAS, for playing with us, you are pure joy!
