Pregnancy shoot incorporates a swarm of bees and we're in shock

A mum-to-be from Ohio just took part in her pregnancy photoshoot, and you won't believe your eyes. 

Emily Mueller is expecting her fourth child this year, wanting to honour the occasion with a pretty shoot, she decided to become creative. 

The Mueller family own a bee sanctuary, using Emily's on hand experience to incorporate 20K bees into the shots. 

Speaking to, Emily explained that bees represent life and death: "We’ve had three miscarriages, so these pictures are dedicated to life and death, to all of the children we’ve had."

The mum-to-be's friend, Kendrah Damis, was the photographer in question on the day, taking the photos while admitting to being slightly unnerved!

"It was uneasy, but I wasn't that scared, I did have to flick a bee off my hand, and I unconsciously hunched down when they were flying around,” commented the photographer. 

However, she completed a pretty huge task, and the photographs are absolutely incredible. 

Not alone did the mum-to-be find the experience special, she also wanted to raise awareness of how safe it can really be if you are aware, declaring her baby was never at risk. 

Kendrah remarked: "Ever have a once in a lifetime experience? Well that is what I got when I was hired to do maternity photos for Emily Mueller."

We cannot get over these snaps – like how amazing are they? Would you do it?
