"I thought it would be a funny idea but never imagined it would go this viral," she said.

A friend set up Larson with Miriam Ott, a fellow student who is also a professional photographer.

"The moment I heard her idea, I loved it," Ott told BuzzFeed News. "It was extremely original, and I instantly pictured a romantic park, sitting on a park bench, enjoying fall with a large, cheesy pizza."

As for her choice of pizza, Larson said she decided on Pizza Hut because it was the only pizza place they had in the small town she grew up in.

"When she brought the Pizza Hut box, it almost gave her 'partner' an identity, so I made sure the brand was right side up, and peeking out in all the shots we took," Ott said.

Larson said she is very shy, and usually doesn't let the world see this side of her. But she decided to put the photos on Facebook, and people shared them widely.

Both women said they were blown away by the response to the pictures.

"We were both laughing the entire shoot, and I remember joking that these photos should go viral, but I don’t think either of us thought that the response would be this huge, so fast, and so positive," Ott said. "We’re loving it."

The photos are obviously hilarious, but Larson said she is also hoping to inspire women her age to be confident in who they are.

"There is a message underneath those pictures of body positivity and not [needing] a boyfriend to make you feel loved," she said.
