Genetic Portraits is am award-winning photographic series by Quebec-based photographer and graphic designer Ulric Collette. By combining the portraits of two individuals who are related to each other, Collete creates a visual study of genetics. Here, cousins Justine, 29, and Ulric, 29, are the same age but don’t appear to share many similarities until you look closer — specifically at their jawlines. We wonder how Justine’s genetic portraits would compare if she was pictured with Ulric’s two brothers!
20 year-old fraternal twins Alex and Sandrine make an interesting study in this photograph. Alex’s face is skinnier, but their shared traits become all the more prominent in this genetic portrait.
Anne-Sophie, 19, and her sister Pascale, 16, blend into one in this genetic portrait. Because the share a similar hairstyle and nearly identical features, the photo looks almost completely natural.
Laurence and Christine are 29 year-old twins who share very different hairstyles and do their makeup rather differently, too. But this picture indeed shows that the two are twins. Their cheekbones, lips, and noses line up almost symmetrically.
Mother and Daughter
49 year-old N’sira and her 18 year-old daugther Marie-Pier are the subjects of this portrait. The bone structure similarities are remarkable. N’sira’s cheek and jaw show signs of age, but her lips and eyes are nearly identical to those of her daughter.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo

Love Looks Beyond Social Status
A lot of people say that Disney doesn’t always set the best example when it comes to relationships. And let’s be honest: that talk is justified. I’ve even said similar things on one or two occasions myself. But let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater! Disney has taught us a few positive things about love and relationships, too.
For starters, love is blind to social status! If you really care about someone, it doesn’t matter whether they come from a rich family or they can barely afford bread. Who cares what other people think? Just like it did with Aladdin and Jasmine and Lady and the Tramp, love will find a way!
Don’t Push Love Away
In ‘Hercules,’ Meg had a difficult romantic past, and it almost turned her off to the idea of love for good. What happened to her? Well, she sold her soul for the chance to be with the man she loved, and he repayed her by leaving her for another woman. Ouch.
Thankfully, though, Meg was eventually able to put the past behind her and open herself up to a new relationship with Hercules. No matter what your past looks like, don’t be afraid to open yourself up to love!
What Counts Is on the Inside
When Belle first met the Beast, she couldn’t have been less impressed — but it wasn’t only because of how he looked on the outside! He was a messed up guy on the inside, too, and she wanted no part of it.
But after his inner personality changed for the better, Belle started to fall for him, even though his beastly appearance remained the same. Real love is about who you are as people, not what you look like on the outside.Via 24/7 Bebenta Sa'yo
