How often have you started to look for a stock photo and then looked at the time and realized that 45 minutes have gone by? I’ve found myself in that exact situation too many times to count. With so many stock photos of woman eating salads and people standing in awkward poses, it’s hard to find exactly what you’re looking for!

It’s also hard to find the time to take all of your own photos. As much as I love photography and the process of shooting and editing my own pictures, sometimes there’s just too many other things to do. At some point I have to step away from my blog and actually clean my bathroom and do laundry…

In my epic search to find quality styled photos, I’ve found some great sites and bloggers that offer quality images. I love that there are so many amazing and creative woman out there that are willing to offer their products for free. Seriously, they’re all major life savors!

Before we get started, if you are in to taking your own photos in between needing a few stock images, you can check out my post on how to improve your photography.

Unsplash Free Stock Photos

1. Unsplash

Unsplash has thousands of free photos available with new ones going up every day. Whether you’re looking for photos of food, landscapes, lifestyle images, or makeup, this site probably has it! The photos are free for commercial use so you never have to worry about how you’re using the images. If you’re in to taking your own photos you can also upload them to Unsplash for people to use!

Pexels free stock photos

2. Pexels

Pexels is the same sort of deal as Unsplash. If I can’t find what I’m looking for on Unplash I’ll head over to Pexels, or vice versa. Sometimes the same photo is on both sites, but for the most part the two sites have different options.

I don’t use stock photos for my blog at all (Team Original Photography haha!), but these is a great resource for sure! We do use stock photos at my day job though and I totally feel you that sometimes it takes forever to find a good one.
