Do you get photo envy when you go to a creative website or mompreneur website and think, wow! those images are beautiful?
For most bloggers who use free images, the best places to go are the big sites like Pixabay, but now that EVERYONE and their neighbor knows about these sites, your images are no longer unique, funky and can’t really represent your brand – because everyone else is using them!
So, thus begins the quest to find stock photos that not everyone is using.
Since I started this blog not even a month ago, I wanted to create a creative brand that was pretty, feminine and girly.
I’ve found some great paid ones and a few free ones, but I still couldn’t find the “look” until just recently.
If you are a creative entrepreneur, mompreneur, blogger or freelancer, here are 18 sites that have free – yes I mean free to use on your blog – girly stock photos.
You won’t find these on Pixabay.
Before we get started, I have another amazing post of 14 *More* Places for Free Styled and Chic Stock Photos so be sure to check out those too!
