BOOK | From Here to Maternity by Kylie Doust - Bunbury Photographer Ben Yew

When Jo Clark ( founder of South West Fashion Festival ) first contacted me regarding a photo session for her client Kylie Doust & her family, I was hesitant at first. Why? because I am currently only accepting bookings for weddings, engagements and lifestyle session for couples. However, when it comes to something different or publications, I make exceptions. I have previously shot a few editorials and 2 made it to the cover of the magazine which I am really happy with. I guess its the personal satisfaction, haha. But this is something different, its for a book. 

Kylie & Glenn Doust's book is called "From Here to Maternity" and it should be out in the bookshops by Christmas. This book is about their journey and challenges going through an adoption process for the two boys from Korea to Australia. According it her, its a very challenging and lengthy process going through it. She is now sharing her experiences in her book.

I had the privilege to meet the family during the photography session and they are just an awesome bunch. They commissioned me for the job because they are after a family lifestyle session and someone who works with natural lights. We started the session at their home and headed to the park nearby just for some extra shots. Thanks to Jo, who helped out with styling and being my assistant at times.

I am looking forward to see the book being published by end of this year and I am very excited to see which images are being selected for the book.
