Energy packed jumping joy in the garden with Kristy Cruz

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

I was doing jumping photos with Girl Guides, so naturally the moms were invited to jump as well. Once we did all the Girl Guides it was the moms turn to play and jump for joy. I loved Kristy’s enthusiasm and her joyful energy comes shining through in this photo. Loved this day!

Get to know Kristy a little:

Hoping to catch some joy and share it.

Q: How was your experience doing the jumping photos?
I loved it, at first I was hesitant but then once we got started I really felt alive!

To me the feeling of joy is an electrifying energy of happiness where I’m totally into the present moment. It impacts my life because I want to find more of it and spread it to others.

Q: What is your greatest passion?
Being a Mom, using creativity in my work, helping people feel better and travel/adventuring.
