St. Martin High photo shoot celebrates record number of twins

ST. MARTIN, MS (WLOX) - St. Martin High has a record number of twins this year. So the school is dedicating a section in the yearbook to look-alike siblings. The photo shoot gave new meaning to the term "double exposure".

"Y'all, it's exciting to be a part of history, because I can tell you we've never had this many multiples on the St. Martin High School campus," said St. Martin High Principal Dina Holland.

What makes the pairs of siblings so rare? The school boasts 11 sets of twins and one set of triplets.

"There's a lot of people I didn't know that were twins, so it was kind of weird," said St. Martin High Senior Danielle Godbolt.

"It was kind of nice though to know there are more twins than just us," said her twin sister Destiny Godbolt.

The photo opportunity gave the twins a chance to share their sometimes identical experiences.

"It's nice to bring everybody together," said St. Martin High Sophomore Chad Callegari.

"And celebrate that uniqueness, that common bond that we have together," said his brother Anthony Callegari.

The brothers and sisters are used to getting double the attention.

"Are y'all twins? The shock or the stare," Danielle said.

"Some people say we look alike. Me and her look at each other and like, no we don't look alike at all," said St. Martin High Junior Peyton Piglia.

"I don't know how to take that, because I'm the cute one," his twin sister Alyssa Piglia said with the laugh.

Posing for the portrait will make their high school year twice as memorable. The Godbolt sisters helped coordinate the photo session. They also have older sisters who are twins.
