Queen at Eighteen

What better place for a queen to have portraits done than at America’s castle, Biltmore Estate?

This lovely young woman is turning eighteen and making her debut. Her beautiful sage green gown has stunningly gorgeous gold lace applique.

I would love to have gotten some close-ups, but did not dare distract a professional at work. I did ask permission to take photos and gave them my card for this blog.

The crown and appliques glistened magically in the afternoon sun.

I think this celebration at eighteen could have a more positive impact than those at 15 or sweet 16. It celebrates the young woman at a critical time in her life. It is like being a bride with no groom. All the attention is focused on her from all the people she loves most.

I am sure this Queen’s celebration will be as lovely as she is.
