Check out this AMAZING list of ten places for womenpreneurs to find free and stylish stock photos!
Are you a fitpreneuer? A mompreneur? A girl boss? A good old fashion entrepreneur?
Do you love getting on a good sweat in the morning and then putting on a pretty dress in the evening? Insert emoji with her hand raised here because I DO!!
I am a personal trainer. I’m a group fitness instructor. I am a stylist with a fashion forward jewelry company that supports sustainable business. I am a Fitness Director. I’m a mom. I’m a fitness blogger. I love coffee, yoga pants, and pretty earrings.
Just like most bloggers and entrepreneurs, I am many things and wear many hats! But being a creative photographer is not one of them, at least not right now!
After many failed attempts at mastering the good ol’ flat lay on Instagram or the perfect blog image for my post, I realized something…
My time and efforts are better used elsewhere than spending countless hours setting up displays and trying to snap mediocre photos on my iphone. And mediocre is being nice, some of them were reallllly bad!
Finding stylish stock photos for girl bosses and bloggers like myself became a little bit of an obsession of mine recently. Professional looking photos make your blog and social feeds look sooo much more clean, crisp, and attractive.
Below you will find some of my favorite FREE stylish stock photo sites for women entrepreneurs. You can add overlay text, crop, and edit in Canva.com or PicMonkey.com for free as well.
So grab a cup of coffee (or tea) and be prepared to go ga ga over these pretty images of desk tops, note pads, laptops, coffee, and pretty accessories…
Coffee and girl boss go together like Rachael and Ross.

Thanks for the shout-out Sarah!
Oh no no, THANK you Kayla for your awesome pictures 🙂
This post is such a great resource! To be honest, I like to take my own photos but there are times where stock photography could have come in really handy! Thanks for sharing!
Thanks Annmarie – I hear ya, I felt like I was wasting sooo much time taking photos that the stock ones have been very helpful lately. But when and if I can snap a good pic, I do like to use my own too! 🙂
I’ve only heard of Haute Chocolate before. I’m not into girly stuff or coffee so most aren’t appealing to me. I’ve been using Pixabay for my stock photos.
Oh yes, that is a good one! Maybe these would appeal to you too? I just didn’t include them bc I wanted this round up to focus on pretty and inspiring work spaces mostly.
Oh man! Great list! I don’t use stock photography because I am a photographer but I love that there are all these great options out there!
Oh well that makes complete sense! I am a wanna be photographer… but like singing, it just ain’t happening! 🙂 Love your site by the way, just checked it our and followed you all over social! 🙂
Thank Sarah for including my site!!!!
Loved the list! I don’t usually grab photos from any stock library because I am a photographer but the list worthy to try. Thanks!
Thanks for sharing Sarah!
