I was inspired to create the idea behind this photo because of a dear friend who wrote to me the following:
"For the last 10 days I've been nervous because my period was late (very, very late) and my doctors and I were thinking that I was pregnant. At first I was really scared because pregnancy = baby and no one really knows how to take care of a baby until they have to do it for the first time. I had to wait out the last few days so that I could be sure a pregnancy test would be accurate. But my period came before that, so now everything is back to normal.
But I guess somewhere over the last 10 days or so I went from being very scared to very excited about the possibility of having a baby and now that I know it won't happen right now, I feel so disappointed (even though it's probably for the best right now - I do have school to finish and all.) I was just so excited. I don't know if, after hearing that there is any way to make that into a picture, but I think it could be something really beautiful. There was so much excitement at the thought of it, and the disappointment following that... I bet you could do something with that."
This photo deals with what my friend went through, and what so many other women go through including myself. .
