Road trip diner stop turned jump for joy fun with Vicky Hernandez of Buckshot Cafe

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

After a wonderful road trip we stopped off at the Buckshot cafe in Niland for lunch. There were several people working in the cafe and all were super friendly, so of course I invited them to jump for joy with me 🙂

Across the street I had seen this abandoned building and knew it would be a cool location for jumping photos, Vicky was game and we talked her friend Tina into joining us as well (her feature will be coming soon as well). It only took a jump or two to get this fun, joyful photo of Vicky. She was warm, friendly and open. So happy she came out to jump and share her joy.

Thank you Vicky, for taking a moment and sharing your beautiful joy with us!


Thank you to the Palm Springs Cultural Center inviting me to be your first Artist in residence and bringing the Jump for Joy Photo Project to the Coachella Valley.
