Angie Rodriguez Verdin + Laura Pietragallo best friends jump of joy

Laura Pietragallo and Angie Rodriguez Verdin photographed by Eyoalha Baker for Jump for Joy Photo Project and Palm Springs Cultural Center Artist Residency

Another fun jumping photo from my session at Palm Springs High School. The bond of friendship these two have is a beautiful reason to jump for joy. They did a couple of solo jumps as well, but I love this photo of the two of them jumping up together is so lovely and joy filled. Their excitement about jumping together and the overall energy was infectious and comes through beautifully in their photo.

Thank you Angie and Laura for sharing your beautiful friendship and 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.
