8 Free Resources for Feminine Stock Photos

text overlay 8 Free Resources for Feminine Stock Photos
I’m going to be real honest with you guys – if the photos and graphics on your blog suck, I’m not going to stick around to see if you have good content. Visuals are SO important for creating a successful blog.

If you want to attract readers, you have to draw them in with your visuals first.

Many bloggers will tell you that you HAVE to take your own photos for your blog if you want to succeed and stand out from the crowd. And there’s no doubt that taking your own photos is great for creating a consistent brand image.

But let’s be real for a second. We’re not all great photographers. Just because you can take a stunning photo with your iPhone doesn’t mean that I can. We don’t all have the time, money, or even desire to invest in learning photography.

Does this mean you shouldn’t start a blog?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

You can create a beautiful, consistent brand with stock photos.

First, spend time browsing resources (like the 8 listed below) to find a style that you like.

Second, as you continue blogging, be picky about the images you use. Make sure that every single photo you choose shares the same style.

WHERE TO FIND FEMININE STOCK PHOTOS

When I designed my blog, I knew I wanted to use feminine styled photography. I had a vision, but many of the stock photo resources I found simply didn’t align with the look I wanted. As a result, I struggled to find a consistent theme for my photos.

The following is a list of 8 of the best resources I have found for free, feminine, styled stock photography. These websites are a great place to start if you want to explore different styles and find something that fits your brand.
