The Dad

Sam, Captain, Sugar and a little bit of me

So I was talking to my friend Holly about who was going to be the first dad to feature in my “Daddy got style” profile and she was like ummmmm Sam? Der, Sam, totally. The bonus being I get to spend a morning taking photo’s of the men in my life. Sorry if there’s a tad too many, I couldn’t choose.

Status-My man. Baby daddy. Superhero.

Style-Until Sam I had never met a guy who had a true understanding of themselves when it came to style. His is completely organic(of course it is). A unique mix of rugged prep that moves from folk to luxury no questions asked.

Past life-Ravi Shankar

Next life-Woody Guthrie

Talent-He makes things. Like impossible things. Not in a tradie way but in a why don’t I recycle that couch and make some amazing leather jackets. Seriously.

Smarts-Well this is tricky because he has done some very clever things in his time. Sam is a pioneer of sorts when it comes to organic and sustainable textiles. One of the first designers who truly cared about the effects not only the results. He is a true creative which is evident through everything he touches. Food, music and love.

Real Deal-He has this thing about him. A gentle, honest nature that makes you want to sit a little bit closer. The thing is he actually cares. About everything.

One Word-Love

Warning-He should come with a warning. POTENTIAL HAZARD-DO NOT LEND YOUR KEYS, WALLET AND SUNGLASSES. THEY WILL BE LOST.

Right Now-He asked me to marry him in the driveway of a friends house getting pizza out of a car.
