Twin sisters in Brazil are celebrating their 100th birthday together this month, and marked it with an adorable photo shoot.
Camila Lima, the twins photographer, said she heard about the women, Maria Pignaton Pontin and Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi after seeing a report about them 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.
