I was featured by K! Magazine, and publication for those who minister to kids. My first feature in a print magazine, which I also shared here on Backspaces http://backspac.es/r/MdJcKpFeFy/swish

This shot was set up by a 3-year old boy. I was patrolling the hallway and strolled into the vicinity of this restroom in our children’s ministry (I work as a children’s pastor) when a couple of Early Childhood leaders asked for my assistance. All I needed to hear from one of them was, “You need to see this,” which alerted me to break out the iPhone out of my pocket. I came upon the scene inside the boys restroom and was excited to capture what had happened. So here’s the (enhanced with drama) story… Little Joel (3 years old) had been in the zone playing hoops in the classroom until he had the sudden revelation that had to go… badly. He did the pee-pee dance to prove his sincerity and urgency. The teacher was so convinced that she personally escorted him to the restroom with his basketball in hand. However, Joel had nowhere to place his orange sphere that made him so happy just minutes ago. But inside this tiled, dimly lit, and cold place called the boys restroom, there happened to be the perfect place to hold his prized object. Swish! Score!

I get a kick out of being featured for mobile photography. It truly is a passion that I “stumbled” into and am excited that viewers like some of the images that I share. Thanks again to K! Magazine for the feature on their Instagram page (A physical-paper page!) This is a great resource for anyone involved in children’s ministry, which you can check out at kidzmatter.com
