These beautiful portraits of an interracial naked couple embracing each other have recently gone viral as people around the world are sharing their heartwarming testament to love.

The portraits feature Gerry, 75, and Darwin, 70, who have been in love with each other for over 20 years, and as you can see, they are clearly still fully into each other.

The shots were taken by Jade Beall, a photographer from Arizona, and since she uploaded them to her Facebook page in June, they’ve gone absolutely viral receiving positive comments and thousands of shares.

“Why do we accept to believe that one thing must be more beautiful than another? Why cannot we embrace a million-billion definitions of beautiful?”, said Beall.

After the pictures went viral, Gerry wrote Jade a beautiful letter. “We wanted to show that wrinkles and aging, sagging body parts are NOT barriers to love unless you let them be.”

“Like fine wine or good cheese, we are more fully ourselves and more full of Love in our 70’s than we ever were in our 30’s and 40’s.”


Jade’s photography style is "truthful beauty and self-love."


These portraits have inspired Beall to start a new photography series on lovers over 60 as a way to free people’s minds from imposed beliefs on love.
