Many people have resigned themselves to believe that as one grows older, they will lose lust for life as well as mobility. If one maintains a positive outlook on life, takes care of themselves through proper dietary and lifestyle habits and adopts the refreshing mentality that elders should be celebrated in societies rather than shunned, they will find that it is possible to thrive in one’s 40’s and well beyond.
Indeed, aging individuals just like their younger counterparts are just as likely to fall in love and live vibrant lives. It’s exactly this message photographer Irina Nedyalkova sought to share with the world when she photographed 45-year-old Sergei and 62-year-old Valentine in front of a setting sun.
The tender images show an elderly couple deep in the throes of love. Together, they are a reminder that age is just a number and that one is never too old to fall head over heels for someone else. The messages hold great importance, as too many people have lost faith in themselves, others and the world. This isn’t how it has to be, however.
Set on a picturesque beach, it’s surprising to learn that Sergei and Valentine were actually strangers before they met for the photo shoot. Nonetheless, the images perfectly convey the message Nedyalkova was on a mission to capture.
Following are endearing pictures of an elderly couple in love:
