The Best Places to Find Amazing Free (and Legal) Stock Photos for Your Blog

by Melissa Stewart

I don’t know about you but finding awesome photos for the posts on She Owns It can be exhausting! I’m well aware of the possible pitfalls (legal + $$) when you “acquire” images online via Google search, Instagram, etc. DON’T DO IT!

But, what if you don’t have an iStock budget?

Below we’ve compiled a list of our “go to” sites for awesome images. It’s an ongoing list so be sure to bookmark!

So what resources are you using for stock photography? If we’ve missed an awesome website let us know in the comments below.
