Marie's ninetieth Birthday Bash!!

27 January 2015

Celebration of Marie's 90 years of changing the world!

Marie's 90th Birthday Bash

Marie Ridder, local conservationist, has accomplished a lot in her life time! Just to name a few, she is currently serving on the Executive Committee of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation and the National Parks Conservation Association. I recently photographed her 90th birthday party in McClean, VA where her friends and family gathered to celebrate all that she has accomplished throughout her life. Not knowing Marie very well, I was hearing many accolades for the first time. When people spoke about Marie I repeatedly heard about her unwavering dedication to make a difference in land conservation in Virginia. I felt so privileged to be honoring such an amazing woman through my photographs!
