AKRON, Ohio – People who understand Emily Mueller would not be amazed to find out that she decided to take her pregnancy photos using a swarm of bees covering her stomach.
“[The Photographs] are absolutely Amazing,” said Mueller. “
“They ’re everything I ever wanted.”
Mueller made a profession out of surrounding areas and honey bees. Since the Summit County Apiary Inspector and Master Beekeeping Program Chair for the Ohio State Beekeeper’s Association, she’s the woman behind “Mueller Honey Bee,” a firm with a mission to rescue honey bees through swarm removals and cutouts.
“As I heard about their importance about what they represent, and the fact that people won’t live without honey bees, kind of became a good deal longer to me than a stinging insect,” she said.
Mueller enlisted the assistance of her husband and Kendrah Damis Photography to create her “bee-autiful” photoshoot come to reside.
“I had really caught the swarm in Wadsworth that morning, prior, at one of the parks that they had, hence that the parks and [recreation] people were only standing several feet off through the whole thing,” she explained.
The science behind the tactical positioning?
“My husband shook the bees onto the ground, I placed the queen in my hand, on my stomach until the bees began to cover”
No doubt it became one of the photoshoots Damis was requested to take part in.
“If the bees were there, I had been somewhat uncomfortable, of course, but Emily was so calm and her family was so calm, it just really helped,” said Damis.
Damis stated she would do it all over again.
“I’m aiming to top it, constantly,” she said.
