Twins Lara and Mara Bawar are showing the world what beauty looks like with their stunning photographs. The twins, who hail from São Paolo, Brazil, were discovered by fashion photographer Vinicius Terranova.

Lara and Mara are twins with albinism which means that their hair, skin, and eyes lack the melanin that give people their tones. For them, it is the albinism that makes them so beautiful.

“We feel albinism is pretty, we love our hair, eye color and skin tone,” Lara told Daily Mail. “Our hair and skin tone are pretty and we feel very special wearing the makeup, hair and light that are worked to fit us. We also love to read the beautiful comments on our pictures.”

Swiss photographer Vinicius Terranova first ran into the twins (photographed below with their older sister Sheila) while in São Paolo, Brazil and knew immediately that she wanted to work with them.

Terranove told Daily Mail that she first worked with the girls on her project “Flores Raras/Rare Flowers” and was inspired by their sheer beauty and great work ethic.

The twins are showing the modeling industry the beauty that can be found in diversity.

“A beauty that is not that uncommon but rather rarely perceived while out there every day, ready to be noticed and given its deserved spotlight,” Terranova told Daily Mail. “A plea to the power of diversity, it represents the encounter of their sublime beauty.”

These. Girls. Are. Beautiful!

And, the twins absolutely love being different.


“Growing up like this was amazing, we love being different and are happy with our unique beauty,” Mara told Daily Mail.

This Stranger Gifted 4-Year-Old Twins a Puppy After Finding Their Christmas Wishlist 650 Miles Away

It may be springtime, but the following story proves that the Christmas spirit can last all year round. Recently, Good Morning America reported a story that proves that good Samaritans do exist. And in fact, they’re hiding in plain sight.

In December, 4-year-old twins Luna and Gianella Gonzalez released two red balloons in the air with their Christmas wishlist to Santa attached to them.

According to their mom Leticia Gonzalez, the little ceremony was meant to be something “different” for the girls–“a memory they could keep after a rough 2020.”

Their mom didn’t think anything would come out of the balloons. Like a message in a bottle, she assumed that the girls’ wishlist wouldn’t reach anyone else’s eyes. “It was a windy day and I just thought it was going to get lost, caught up in a tree.”

It was to her surprise, then, when Louisiana man Alvin Bamburg contacted her via Facebook after finding a wishlist over 600 miles away in Grand Cane, Louisiana.

Bamburg had been deer hunting when he came across Luna’s discarded balloon and wishlist. The list asked Santa for candy, a Spider-Man ball, a “Frozen” doll, My Little Pony, and a puppy. Touched, he posted a photo of the note to Santa to his Facebook page.

“Found this in the woods in Grand Cane, LA,” Bamburg wrote. “Would love to know when it was launched. Looks like it traveled over 600 miles. Feel free to share.”

Bamburg’s family and friends did their duty and shared the post liberally. Soon, Bamburg was able to get in touch with the Gonzalez family.

He updated his post: “We have heard from the mom and are going to work with her to figure out the best way to grant her daughters’ wishes. Stay tuned…”

After talking with Leticia Gonzalez, and with the help of some generous donations from friends and family, Bamburg shipped a belated Christmas package to Liberal, Kansas.

Naturally, Bamburg didn’t ship the puppy from the wishlist in the package. But, that’s where the magic of the story comes in.

With Leticia Gonzalez’s blessing, Bamburg and his wife planned a trip to Kansas to meet the family for the first time and deliver a brand new puppy to the girls. Good Morning America filmed the entire meet-up.

Bamburg, Luna and Gianella all played with the puppy on the front lawn of their house. Leticia Gonzalez told GMA that Bamburg is now part of their family. “We are very blessed,” she said through tears. “Thank you. Thank you for making my girls so happy.”

Bamburg, himself, was almost as happy as the twin girls were, if not happier. “If you can make one person smile — trust me not only will it help them, it will make you feel so much better,” he said.
