There’s no doubt about it; I’m an absolute sucker for gorgeous stock photos. But, who isn’t? Finding feminine, elegant, free, stock photos can be quite challenging. Especially if you’re new to the blogging world. I know I didn’t have a clue where to start (ha, like so many other things about blogging!), so it took me some time to find images that worked well with my brand and were also stylish and feminine. Sites like Pixabay are great, but every blogger on the planet uses those. And they aren’t usually on brand or feminine. I enjoy myself some nice flat lays and gleaming Macs, in my stock images. Since then, I have found oodles of dazzling stock photos, and they didn’t break the bank. In fact, every single one on this list is completely free. Enjoy.


Yes, there are plenty of outstanding images floating around on the internet, but those images are 100% illegal to use on your blog or website without permission. If you’re unfamiliar with why you need to find free stock photo sites (or purchase stock photos) in the first place, head on over to this post to get the low-down on blogging laws.


Then head back to this post to score your stunning free stock photos for girl bosses and creative entrepreneurs. 





Alison from Wonderlass has quirky, colorful, awesome photos. Her personality shines through in her photography – making these images unique and will make you stand out in the oversaturated blogging world.  She has 15 free stock photos you can grab here.

2) A prettier web



Mel from A Prettier Web offers 7 styled stock images for the female entrepreneur. They are classy and just plain gorgeous for any female blogger or lady boss.




I’m in love with these fabulous free stock photos. Kayla from Ivory Mix also offers memberships for even more feminine images for girl bosses. Although, you do get a huge array of free images, probably the largest I’ve seen of free quality stock images. Ivory Mix is by far, my favorite place to score free images. You can grab them here.

So far I’ve been through 16 incredible websites that you can score free stock images, that are feminine, girly, and perfect for us girl bosses or creative entrepreneurs. 

As a bonus, I’m adding a list of 11 more blogs and websites where you can find even more amazing and girly stock photos – for free, of course.




16) Shay Cochrane. (Just find the sign-up bar)

17) Pink Pot/Creative Convex.

18) Colorstock. (Just find sign up box)

19) Kreanille Design.

20) Diva Gone Domestic.

21) Cliche Mignon. (it’s french but you just subscribe + receive the images in your inbox).

22) Solopreneur Sidekick.

23) Rawpixel.

24) Pexels.

25) Gold and Berry. (just scroll through the freebies until you see the stock photos).

26) Magdeline.


Well, there you have it.

It took me forever to locate the types of stock photos that fit my branding, were feminine, and of course, free. Which is why I’ve put together this list, to hopefully help other newbie bloggers, and save you loads of time and headaches. 🙂 I plan to subscribe to one or two stock photo libraries to receive their membership only images, eventually. Once I hit my goal and am making a full-time income blogging that is. If you’re curious how I plan to make a full-time income blogging, and how you can too – check out this post. It’s an excellent way to support other creative entrepreneurs while scoring some beautiful images in return.

I hope you have found some gorgeous, dazzling, free stock photos from these sources (I know I did!).

Do you have any more I should add to this list? Let me know down in the comments.


Until next time,

XO Alee

      And I hope you find the Pinterest group board list helpful! I am actually working on adding it and adding another 100-150 quality boards to it as well.
