Twin sisters in Brazil will celebrate their 100th birthday later this month and to mark the momentous occasion, a photographer captured them in a whimsical photo shoot.
Camila Lima, of Cariacica, Brazil, told ABC News that she heard about Maria Pignaton Pontin and Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi after seeing a report on her local news.
The photographer said she regularly takes photos of older couples «as a way to inspire young couples.» She decided to reach out to the sisters, who live in Ibiraçu, Brazil, hoping they’d participate in a photo shoot to mark their milestone birthdays.
They immediately agreed.
Lima, 28, said the two-hour photo shoot on Monday included hair styling, makeup application and pink and blue matching dresses. She added that the two sisters «were all excited.»
«They did everything I asked and did not complain about tiredness,» the photographer said, noting that both were «very happy and satisfied» with the finished photo shoot.
It’s a great present for the twins and their big family.
Pandolfi has six children, 19 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, while Pontin has five children, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren, according to Brazil’s Gazeta News.
The twins plan to celebrate with their large family on May 20, the newspaper added.
