With Father's Day around the bend, we thought it was time to get another Papa Muse on the blog! Today we chat with Tim (@reddog_1) about life on the Sunshine Coast, fatherhood and what this Father's Day looks like for a dad of two.

You may even recognise Tim from our recent Nevada shoot! 

Fun Fact:
This campaign was shot at Tim and Jalissa's property - a dreamy setting for a cool print.

Tell us a little bit about yourself and your gorgeous family?

My name's Tim and I’m a father of two beautiful little girls, Banksia and Zuri. My amazing partner in life is Jalissa and we are a new family, so everyday is a new adventure. We live on a beautiful block of land in the Sunny Coast hinterlands.

What is your go-to fun activity with your two girls?

My go to activity would be taking them swimming either in our dam, down the creek or at the beach. I just love being outside with them and watching them explore and immerse themselves in nature.

What has been the highlight of your parenting journey so far?

Watching my girls grow into tiny people and learn new things is the best.

What will you be getting up to this Father’s Day?

Hopefully I wake up to a beautiful day at home & I get to get out and about and enjoy it with my girls.

If you had to pick a Chekoh Carrier colour and style, which would you choose?

Colours don’t bother me, they are really cool but my go to is the Clip Carrier.
I find it easy to chuck on, I leave the other styles for Mama.

Do you have any advice for any new dads out there?

Be the dad you wish you had or better. Show them you love them every single day.

A huge thank you to Tim and Jalissa for opening their doors and hearts to us on a beautiful shoot day for the Nevada collection.

If you know of any dads that would love to feature as a Papa Muse on our blog - reach out!
