Emily Musson, who attends LIM College, has been with her boyfriend Johnny for the past two weeks and they've been using social media to document their affection for each other.
The photos range from Johnny nuzzling Emily's neck to the pair playfully sticking out their tongues at the camera.
Upon seeing the now pubic snaps, Emily's parents decided to recreate each picture, frame by frame.
Emily has since posted the pictures on her Twitter page and the hilarious snaps have been shared more than 44,000 times in the past two days.
Speaking to Cosmopolitan, Emily said her mother is delighted that the snaps went viral.
