I love going through stock photography websites and Instagram feeds with beautiful imagery. Honestly, I could scroll through them all day!
Stock Photography is one of those important things that can really help to make your social media stand out (think Instagram, Pinterest & Facebook). Sometimes, it’s difficult to be creative and make your own beautiful eye-catching images that these professional photographers are creating.
I have recently been experimenting and working on improving my own skills in this area, as I would like to create some of my own content too eventually – after lots and lots of practice.
My Favourite Styled Stock Photography
Here is a little information on two of my current favourites:
Alicia has a beautiful collection of stock images available on her site. You can buy images individually or pay a subscription fee to access her content. Alicia also has an awesome Facebook group – ps. brand beautiful where she shares her tutorials. I myself have learnt a few useful tips by watching them (search the #teachmetuesday to find them). The best part is if you sign up for her monthly newsletter you get sent a few images each month completely free!
I started following Amanda a little while ago and I really like the style of her stock images. I feel it is hard to find neutral coloured stock images, I personally like them to be feminine but with lots of black, greys and whites – Amanda’s Modern Neutrals Package has nailed it! Apart from selling stock images (which is always being updated), Plush Content Co also offers custom brand photography. You can sign up on the website for her awesome newsletter and you will receive 4 free monthly images.
I regularly use both Pixie Stock & Plush Content Co across all my social media platforms. From blog posts, Facebook headers to various Instagram graphics. I use Canva to create all of these, so keep your eyes peeled for an upcoming tutorial.
Like the look of my social media graphics? I also offer this as a service, make sure to get in contact if you need some for your business.
