If you follow me pretty regularly, you know all about the amazing Maddie’s Mark, founded by my dear friend Erin Musto. I’ve been blessed time and time again to be able to assist Erin and her mission of bringing “best days ever” to families battling every parents worst fear…
When I was contacted last week about photographing sweet little Ryder during his “best day ever” at Willard Mountain, I was honored and humbled to share my expertise. Ryder is a vibrant 4 year old boy diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma)…lives in Florida and had never before seen snow. Erin and her amazing team partnered up with Willard Mountain this past weekend to give Ryder a fun filled day of tubing, snowball fights and his first time on skis. I was thrilled to be there to capture some of those amazing firsts and witness first hand his contagious giggles and joy.
Keep fighting sweet Ryder. You are in our thoughts and prayers each and every day.
