In early 2016 I began volunteering at Preston Taylor Ministries (PTM), and fell in love with their mission, the team and the kids. PTM ministers to K-12 students in the Nashville Preston Taylor public housing area at six different locations.

They are making a giant impact in their community - teaching kids how to discover and live their God-inspired dreams, develop a love for learning, and build joy-filled friendships that glorify Jesus.

Every spring, PTM celebrates their 4th grade students with a graduation ceremony - and I was given the privilege of capturing portraits of the graduates to be used in their ceremony presentation. It was a fun Friday afternoon meeting, being silly and photographing 25 of their 4th grade graduates.

And I can't wait to do it again next year.
