What an honor to share this photo. This has to be, hands down, the best experience ever in my life ! These’s Ellies are so well behaved, soft personalities and really gentle animals.

I am very blessed and honored to have done this shoot and getting to the Elephants and now I am proud to say, I am an Ambassador for Adventures with Elephants and The Rory Hemsworth Conservation and Research Unit where we are trying to educate people about rhinos and elephants so we can lower the poaching rate of these animals.

First and foremost thank you Mom Berdine de la Porte for everything you do. You organized this day and made it all possible. This was far more than I bargained for but truly an awesome day where I met my soul animal and now all I want to do is make the world better for them. I love you so much and thank you a million for all your love and support ??
