The world isn’t short of beautiful, bizarre and downright surreal pregnancy and postpartum photo shoots.But 33-year-old mum-of-three Emily Mueller’s tops them all for featuring 20,000 bees.A full-time beekeeper who keeps 24 hives containing around 1.2 millions bees, Mueller says she’s been stung a whopping 350 times this year alone – but this didn’t stop her getting the honey bees to settle on her stomach in celebration of her fourth pregnancy.Despite being stung three times in the process, she says the end result was worth it.“A lot of people think I’m insane but I’m so comfortable with bees so it was never something I had anxiety about,” she said.“I wore a dress that was long and covered my stomach and legs so the bees would be on the outside of my body as a precautionary measure, but I knew it was safe.”Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.

Melissa Jean, a photographer based in Australia, took this post-birth photo of Alyce in just a bra and nappy - with her robe proudly open - capturing the beauty of new motherhood in the process. Jean posted the image on her Instagram along with the words: “One hour after giving birth… looks stunning… in a nappy #womenareamazing #thatisall”. “I met Alyce when she employed me to capture her journey into motherhood - and we’ve been friends ever since,” Jean told Yahoo Style UK.
The bemused look on the woman’s face says it all: it’s not every day you find you’ve worn the same outfit as the interior of a hotel. One person commented on photo-sharing site Imgur: “Well one of us is going to have to change”.
