We all know that we love free stuff more than paid ones, right? That’s why most of these websites that I’ll mention below offer free stock photos except the last one. Although the last one is a paid website, I included some of the best offers they have which you can buy for a very special price.
But before going to that, I want to talk a bit about how I manage to find these websites.
When I first started blogging, I never had a big budget for it. When I saw how much other bloggers pay for a membership to a stock photo website. Truthfully, It kinda made me scared and thinks that I need to do the same thing.
But then I realize, there’s a possibility of finding a website that offers stock photos for free, right? So why not try to find it and I can still make a beautiful blog with only free stuff?
And that leads to much research which I found out that the type of stock photos that are used often by popular bloggers is the flat lay photos. In case you don’t understand what a flat lay photo is… I will explain it to you in simple words. To make a flat lay photo, it needs to be taken from directly above and the result will look like this:
When you put this kind of image, it will give your blog a minimalist and professional look. That’s why I decided to use flat lay images more often on my blog.
Now, the thing is some websites may offer this type of photos but some may not. There are big websites that offer free stock photos but don’t offer the flat lay ones. That’s when I know that I need to do a lot of research and browsing and eventually, I came across some websites that offer free stock photos in exchange for your email address.
The good thing about this list is some websites are so generous that they’ll send you more free stock photos every month as long as you keep on subscribing to them! How’s good is that?
Now, for the sake of not wanting to ruin what photos they’ll give to you, I won’t be putting their sample photos. I’ll only include a link to the page where you can sign up for their website and get the FREE stock photos.
So, here it is the list of stock photo websites that I recommend:
This website offers 10 FREE photos when you sign up to their mailing list for the first time and then you’ll get 4 photos every month in the future but be noted that you need to keep on subscribing.
To be honest, I found this website by accident. I was browsing around and then I found this website and fell in love with their photos. They offer a big range of photos perfect for a lifestyle blog, especially on fashion and beauty niche.
Not only they offer free images, but they also offer a membership plan that includes Quotes, Canva templates for your social media, Videos, and Graphics for branding if you joined the membership which price starting at $29 per month. If you like to use Instagram for your social media marketing then this is a one-stop-shop for you boss babes out there!

#14 Creative Market
Creative Market has been my number one place to find all the things that I need to brand my blog. They have icons, fonts, themes, graphics, stock photos, clip arts and many more.
I personally buy some of the stock photo bundles from them and that really helps My Pinterest image’s design better. There are some good points of using a paid stock photos which are you’ll get better photos than the free ones and you can choose based on what theme you want either is beauty, fashion, or other. And one great thing for sure that the price isn’t that expensive.
This is a great choice if you don’t really use a lot of stock photos on your website and you just need better stock photos rather than free ones.
These are the ones that I recommended for you to take if you have a lifestyle blog:
- Twiggy Post – MASSIVE Tropical Stock Photo Bundle for $49 (Including 90 bright color photos)
- Springs & Co – Soft Coral Styled Stock Photo Bundle for $30 (Including 30 peach color photos)
- Floral Deco – Pale Pink Bundle for $19 (Including 39 pale pink color photos)
