That is what I think of when I look for beautiful pictures for my blog.
But the problem is, I am absolute trash at taking aesthetically pleasing pictures. I can barely take pictures of my cats properly, let alone beautiful blog photos.
So how do bloggers who can’t photograph to save their life, or maybe just don’t want to invest in camera, lighting, and props from the very beginning do?
Look for stock photography if you want beautiful blog photos.
Stock photography uses other people’s images for a fee usually, but there are tons of royalty free images online too.
I personally love Styled Stock Society. (If you click this link it won’t cost you any more, but it helps me out!) And most stock photos on my social media websites and blogs are from there as of August 2019.
And they’re everything.
I like to sort pictures out for blog posts by color and theme, and their site is optimized for this. So if you are blogging about a niche topic like parenting kiddos while managing a thriving blog, you can narrow your search.
But if paid memberships aren’t for you, then here are some free resources for stock photos!
