Maria Pignaton Pontin and Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi are best friends and identical twin sisters who are getting ready to celebrate their 100th birthday together. When Brazilian photographer Camilla Lima heard about the pair, she offered to do a free birthday photoshoot.
The twin sisters who’ll turn 100 on 24th May, wore pink and blue tutus with flower crowns and posed for a few fun photos.
“I had never met anyone 100 years old, let alone twins,” Lima told GoodHousekeeping.com. “I got in touch with their family and offered the photoshoot as a gift.”
“We were all excited and they put on beautiful dresses, did their hair and came to the capital to take the pictures.”
Paulina and Maria who are residents of Vitória, Brazil, were pretty excited about their photoshoot as near and dear ones gathered to witness the sweet moment.
The twin sisters have been with each other through thick and thin. Paulina who has 6 children and 19 grandchildren, suffered from cancer many years ago and has also had two heart attacks in her life. Maria, who has had a healthy life, has been by her sister’s side all this while.
We wish these beautiful twins a very happy 100th birthday.
