Pregnant woman swarmed by bees for unusual photo shoot. Reported by Craig Webb. A New Franklin woman has created a buzz on social media over a rather unusual maternity photo shoot. With the help of a Massillon photographer and thousands of bees, Emily Mueller, a beekeeper by trade, posed Monday with a swarm covering her pregnant belly. The images went viral and were shared all over the country. While the photos look ominous, Mueller said, a fair number of precautions were taken before the photo shoot was set up.
