a beautiful beginning: vaughn charleston’s birth story.

This birth was a special treat for me because it was the first time I have been allowed to photograph a c-section in the OR. Megan’s doctor was so laid back and accommodating that it made for such a great experience all around! Megan & Shane had a long road of trying to conceive for the first time and unfortunately Megan ended up with an unplanned emergency c-section with her daughter (who just turned 3). After Sophia was born, Megan had no trouble conceiving and now she has 3 precious babies all 3 years old and younger! But, since all of the kids were so close together, she had no choice other than to have c-sections every time. Even though Megan was a bit extra nervous this time around, thankfully everything went off without a hitch and the result was a perfect, healthy baby BOY. Vaughn Charleston was born at 9:50am and weighed in at 8.3lbs, 21.5″ long.

He was welcomed by both sets of out-of-town grandparents and big siblings Sophia & Max. Since he was born on St. Patrick’s Day, everyone wore green and the kids were extra decked out in their St. Patty’s Day gear – which was super cute! Sophia was REALLY hoping for a baby sister, but was surprisingly fine with the news of another brother…until it actually soaked in about 15 minutes later haha! She got a little sad then, but I’m sure as she gets older, she will enjoy all of the extra spoiling that will come her way with being the only girl 😉 Max didn’t quite know what to think at first, but he’s not even 2 yet, so hopefully he’s enjoying his brother now and isn’t too jealous he’s not the baby anymore.

Congrats on your new addition and thank you for inviting me into the OR with you 🙂
