Birthdays are a thing of joy, but when you're celebrating your 100th birthday with your twin, then it becomes super  awesome!

We can totally say the same for Brazilian twins Maria Pignaton Pontin and Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi who would be marking their 100th birthday  on May 24, 2017.


As a way of marking it, local photographer , Camila Lima who heard about the twins decided to reach out to them in order to have a photo shoot ahead of their 100th birthday.

Pandolfi has six children, 19 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren, while Pontin has five children, 12 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.
