Maternity Photoshoot: Pregnant Ohio Mom Poses For Maternity Photoshoot With Thousands Of Bees


Emily Mueller’s decision to have a swarm of bees cover her belly for her pregnancy photos wouldn’t surprise anyone who knows her. Mueller added, “It’s very beautiful, these pictures.” “They fulfil every desire I have ever had.”

Mueller turned the preservation of honey bees in Akron and its environs into a vocation. She founded “Mueller Honey Bee,” a firm whose goal is to save honey bees through swarm removals and cutouts. She is the Ohio State Beekeeper’s Association Master Beekeeping Programme Chair and the Summit County Apiary Inspector.

“As I learned about their importance about what they represent, and the fact that we won’t survive without honey bees, kind of became a lot more to me than a stinging insect,” she explained.

Mueller sought assistance from Kendrah Damis Photography and her spouse to bring her “bee-autiful” photograph to life.

“I had caught the swarm in Wadsworth that morning, prior, at one of the parks they had, so the parks and [recreation] people were only standing a few feet away through the whole thing,” she explained.

The science underlying the placement strategy?

“My husband shook the bees onto the ground, I placed the queen in my hand, on my stomach until the bees started to cover.”

Without a doubt, Damis was requested to take part in one of the most unusual picture shoots ever.

“When the bees were there, I was a little uneasy, of course, but Emily was so calm and her family was so calm, it just really helped,” Damis said.

Damis declared she would repeat the entire process.

“I always want to surpass it,” she declared.
