Photoshoot | Getaway


Hi guyysssss!

So, it’s the first day of me posting something other than a chapter. Last week when I made the decision to do that, it seemed like such a good idea! Photoshoots! Articles! Backstory! So, as the weekend got closer, I sat down and thought: What to do? And I had no freaking idea πŸ˜€

That was, until I stumbled on these photos. They were actually supposed to be part of the finale of A Monte Vista story, but then I changed my mind and dropped them, which was a little sad, because I think they’re pretty cute! I can’t say anything more about the context, as some of the elements that were in that version of the ending are still going to happen, sooo… here are the photos! I hope you guys like them. I’m sorry this isn’t much – I just really couldn’t come up with anything else…








Now, of course I couldn’t just take these pictures and think ‘Wow, those are some nice pictures, I’m happy with them’. Some of them are a little darker and less vibrant than I’d like. I think I used ReShade for them, but I think I forgot it with some, and with others I was probably too lazy to light them up properly (because I guess that’s hard?) so um… yeah, I edited some, left others a little lacklustre. It’s a mess πŸ˜€

By the way, I’ve done up my old simblr. There’s literally nothing there right now. I remember I made it, thought how intimidating it seemed to be part of the sim-tumblr community, and then I never did anything else, ha, ha πŸ˜€ but now I figure I’d try again. So, if any of you guys have simblrs please tell and I’ll totally follow you and reblog/like ALL your stuff! (Within reason – let’s not go crazy).

But that’s what I had for today. I hope everyone’s having a great weekend so far, and I’ll see you for the next chapter πŸ™‚

    I love your photos! They are beautiful!

    I just followed your Simblr. My main account is Judy Garland (Dear Joots, I Adore You), so that’s what you will see follow you. haha But one of my side-blogs is a Simblr.

    It’s a lovely photoshoot. And it’s so pleasant to see how their clothes match in color. I also like your new avatar, also with the pink! Your photos are a delight to look at.

      Thank you for all your kind words, Jowita <3
      I liked taking these pics of them in nice, light outfits and I thought it was pretty cute with them matching πŸ™‚

  • sempreviva

    This was such a sweet photoshoot! <3
    I hope the fact that you're sharing those pictures doesn't mean that these two are not getting a happy ending?! *gasps* Just kidding, I'm sure that whatever happens with them will be awesome, you have my absolute trust!
    I think I had made a tumbr acciunt, but it intimidated me as well and I've never used it! If I do though, I'll definitely give you a follow! πŸ˜€

    • NotJustaBook

      Thank you <3
      He, he, well, for obvious reasons I shall refrain from telling whether they'll have a happy ending or not πŸ˜› I'm glad you trust me to write a good ending… I'm in a bit of a funk with the story and I don't feel the same trust πŸ˜›

    These pictures are so cute! *sobs* I love how their clothes match 😍
    I have a Simblr called @thesimperiuscurse! I’m gonna be a downer here but you were kind of right to be intimidated, because that community is way bigger, meaner, competitive and unsupportive than here, there’s always tons of petty drama and cruel people on anonymous. Also some stupid mindset about popularity. But there are also lots of nice people, I’ve made awesome friends on there, and of course the sim creation and photos are absolutely amazing- constant inspiration and motivation for me! Just be careful and don’t follow blogs that associate with the drama. I can recommend my favourites if you would like.

    • NotJustaBook

      Thank you so much <3 I really like taking cute pictures of these two because their relationship is a flipping mess :')
      I did notice that the Simblr community is a little bit of a drama fest. I was on Tumblr a few years back and it just generally gets a little dramatic. If you have some recommendations for some good blogs to follow, that'd be grand <3
      Mostly I'm sticking with WP, though, but I would like a place to dump a picture or two now and again πŸ™‚

      • Lila Remonn

        Oh yes, and it’s probably gotten worse over the last year, I’ve seen so many people leave because of the toxicity.
        Yep, I’ll send you a few through Tumblr messaging πŸ‘

    How on earth have you guys got time for side-blogs??? I feel I hardly have the time to nourish my one and only! Lovely pictures and pretty dress!

    • NotJustaBook

      Ha, ha, right now? I don’t have time XD Which is why my Tumblr until five minutes ago consisted of zero posts. Right now there’s one post! But I do a lot of interior decorating for fun in ts3 so I think I’ll use my Tumblr to dump the pictures of those πŸ˜›
      Thank you <3

    • NotJustaBook

      Thank you <3 Yeah, these pictures I think are really peaceful and sweet πŸ™‚ A total contrast to the actual story right now. Ha, ha, ha…
      Thanks for the follow as well – trust me, I'm not very active there, either. I'll probably just post interiors when I create some nice ones πŸ˜›

    I’m hopping back here to appreciate these photos now that I’ve invested into these two and this is adorable. I love the color scheme of both their outfits and the setting 😍😍😍 I don’t have a tumblr anymore, but I love seeing all the lovely things others share occasionally so if I ever revive mine/make a new one, I’ll be sure to give a follow~
