These twins celebrated their 100th birthday with a photo shoot too cute for words.

Twin sisters Paulina Pignaton Pandolfi and Maria Pignaton Pontin celebrated their 100th birthday May 24.

The milestone birthday made the local news, catching photographer Camila Lima's attention. Lima reached out to the twins and their families and set up a delightful, borderline-magical photo shoot in Vitória, Brazil.

The sisters got their hair and make up done and put on fluffy tutus for the occasion.

Lima said the sisters were a little quiet at first but quickly opened up.

And there were so many perfect props to bring the shoot to life. Maria and Paulina were totally game!

After all, you don't make it a century in age without knowing how to cut loose.

At 100 years old, Paulina and Maria have so much to celebrate.

Paulina (in pink) is one tough mother. She has six children, 19 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. She's survived cancer and two heart attacks, but she continues laugh, smile, and make the most of life.

Like her sister, Maria (in blue) is buoyed by her faith and loving family. She has 12 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandson. Both women have put a lot of life and love in their years.

After her photo session with Paulina and Maria, Lima said she intends to add more senior models to her clientele.

Lima hopes capturing and sharing photos of her older clients will inspire her younger clients, particularly those just engaged or starting families.

As these lovely ladies remind us, celebrating your amazing accomplishments and feeling your look have no age limit.

So whether it's a milestone birthday, a job well done, or just another day living your best life, don't be afraid to celebrate yourself and let others celebrate you too. Don't wait for a special occasion — life is pretty special already.
