I’m always talking about how important it is to have great photos on your website. Having professional photos is my number one tip for how to make your website stand out. If your business hasn’t taken off yet, and your budget is tight, DIY photos are NOT your only option. The internet is filled with amazing and beautiful stock photos that you can use for free!
Here are a few of my favorite places to get stock photos that are actually cute. Most of these sites are free to use, but I’m going to add in a few paid sites just in case you want some. As always, *please check the copyright* and make sure that you’re using the images legally.
Pexels has such a great variety of different photographers, styles, and I love all of their minimalistic ones. Plus they even have videos that you can use for free, which is huge!
Foodiesfeed has the best food pictures.
And unsplash is great for lifestyle.
Haute Stock comes out with tons of new collections every month, and since it’s a paid site everybody won’t have the same images as you.
I also pay for Styled Stock Society, and they have so many great collections as well.
Using stock photos used to feel kind of tacky, but seriously let’s just throw that stigma out the window. There are tons of creators out there who just want to help each other, and the stock images you can get now are so awesome, and you can really find things that will match your brand perfectly. Bonus: you can even find some free stock photos right in Canva!
