Little Austin came into the world with a bit of a bumpy start after he and mum were shipped around most of Auckland from one hospital to another. Luckily for him this is a family made of tough stuff! Mum Kate was out racing her sailing dinghy well into pregnancy and dad Matt ran the Auckland marathon just a day after meeting his new baby boy! It's fair to say this is a family that doesn't like sitting still!
But I did manage to steal a couple of hours of quiet time with them to capture Austin at just 9 days old. This hungry fella was more interested in eating than sleeping, but when he did catch a moment's rest he was just too sweet. Kate and Matt, I hope you love this record of your earliest days with Austin.
