What an incredibly fun day doing jumping photos at Palm Springs High School. The school is beautiful, and the 18 students that I was lucky enough to photograph are amazing. Faith was one of the students who came out to jump around and she was playful and full of life.
I wish I had more time to get to know each student individually because my brief impressions were that of kind, open hearted, intelligent and powerful teenagers that give me faith (pun intended) in the future.
