{thursdays take two | tippi discovers africa}

Good Morning Lovelies! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas day yesterday. It really gave me time to reflect on how grateful I am for my family and friends. Mainly, my parents. I have pretty awesome parents and when I saw this post, I had to share. It comes from Enpundit.com and really worth the read. Enjoy!

 

 

This Is Why Wildlife Photographers Make The Best Parents

 

With both her parents being freelance wildlife photographers, Tippi Degre has had one hell of a childhood. Her French parents, Alain Degre and Sylvie Robert, raised her in Namibia, where she grew up alongside wild animals like elephants, lions, and cheetahs.

Rather than playing with Barbies and dolls, Tippi was out kissing toads and riding on the backs of elephants. Have a look at these incredible photographs that document Tippi’s unique childhood, growing up with some of Africa’s most beautiful and dangerous animals.

If you’re interested in seeing more from Tippi’s childhood, she has published a book entitled “Tippi: My Book of Africa”, available for purchase here.
