Earlier I shared 39 sources for free general stock images here. Now let's see how to be a bit more specific.
Are you like me? I think I can't live without them! They are sooo beautiful, so feminine, so us.
Yes, I adore feminine styled stock photos.
A few years ago they were non-existent, now the internet is full of them. No wonder. They come in so many styles. They tell a lot of different stories. They are like us, women entrepreneurs.
Some of them are flamboyant, full of color. Some of them come with a lot of gold. Some of them are sophisticated. Or minimal with only a little splash of color. Pastel.
Everybody can find the style that matches their business and brand.
In this post I collected 18 resources where you can find feminine styled stock photos. Some of them are free, offered maybe only as a side project, some of them are businesses whose profile is selling these.
1. Rosemary Watson
Rosemary has a styled stock photo library that's accessible with a monthly subscription. Her photos are beautiful, she has desktop photos and other themes. If you subscribe on her website, you get some freebies - she sometimes hides one in her blog posts too. She has 200+ images in the library, the regular subscription is $29, yearly is $299. 20+ new images are added each month.

3. Creative Convex
That's Chaitra. She offers photos with a lot of white and a little splash of color loyal to her slogan: creative minimalism. Subscribe to her newsletter for a monthly pack here.
4. Kreanille Design
Hey, that's me. :) Check out my Resources page for some free mockups - yes, these are not only JPGs but PSDs with smart objects. I also have a beginner's guide on how to use them. Totally free, no subscription needed (some rights reserved). I also have some beautiful photo bundles in my Creative Market shop, if you wanted more.
If you want these below (10 images of this gorgeous pink notebook, all high-res), subscribe to my Kreanille Creatives' Club list (you'll get access to other freebies and monthly free images from me).

7. Diva Gone Domestic
Tara, another graphic designer offers styled stock photos. If you subscribe to her newsletter, you get a free image every month and she sometimes offers a photo on her blog without subscribing.
