This book contains a lively and colorful photo-documentation of an Austin, Quinceañera,(15th birthday celebration and coming-out ball) for Paula Viruegas of Austin, Texas.
The ceremonial mass, held January 9, 2010 at Cristo Rey Catholic Church was officiated by Father Jayme Mathias.
The subsequent reception, held at Phillips Event Center, included several dances performed by Paula and her court of 14 Chambelanes (young men attendants)-- followed by a disco-style dance to top off the evening's entertainment.
We have attempted to document the events as they unfolded with a special emphasis on journalistic-style coverage and candid portraits.
We sincerely hope that Paula's friends, family, participants and other well wishers will find this book remarkable in its design and content.
Please Note: This book is compiled of various photos some by the authors and others by guests and other photographers. Copyrights of photos by other photographers are held by Christina Gomez and the authors have been granted express permisson to use said photos.
