Inside the Styled Stock Library

There are currently nearly 700 images organized into easy-to-view collections.

Here's a closer look at the images you'll find inside

This is just a small sample of the gorgeousness. Please note, these images are in low resolution, your images will be crisp + clear!



Let's face it, not all stock photos are created equal. I created the Styled Stock Library because I was frustrated with spending hours trying to find stylish and chic stock images that spoke to me as a woman entrepreneur. Everything I found seemed so old school, stale, and boring. There were a few styled stock photography sites popping up with really beautiful photos, but they were expensive. I knew I needed stock photos for my website branding, sales pages, blog posts and social media posts, and that it would add up to a hefty price tag quickly.

That's where the idea for the Styled Stock Library was born. I wanted to create a membership site with a low annual fee where women entrepreneurs could quickly and easily find images that helped them build better online brands + attract their ideal clients.

I’m Rachel, founder and creative director of Haute Chocolate. As photographer and graphic designer who’s obsessed with styling and branding, I strive to create the most beautiful, bright, and captivating images so that you can attract and inspire your dream clients.

Sure, you can take photos yourself, but unless you’re a professional photographer or are ready to spend the money and time it takes to create really great photos, your DIY attempts may do more harm than good.

You only have a few seconds to make a killer first impression on your audience.

If your images are low quality, poorly lit and out of focus, what does that say about the quality of your work? It’s not fair, but it’s true. Everyone judges the book by its cover.  

Your goal when using stock photography should be to instantly attract your dream client's attention and then invite her in to learn more about you and your services.

I've made it super easy for you to do that with the Styled Stock Library. You'll have hundreds of professionally styled images that you can easily make your own by overlaying your text, logo or digital products. You can use images as part of a digital marketing strategy across your website, blog and social media channels to instantly create a cohesive and polished brand.

Use the images in the Styled Stock Library as your secret weapon to beautifully represent the quality and creativity of what you do!



How can I use the images in the Styled Stock Library?

What size are the images?

All images are 3600 x 2400 JPEG files and are saved in high resolution 300 ppi. You may resize the images and change the resolution as needed. They're big enough so that you can use them for most anything online and print, but not so huge that you'll need to order a hard drive extension after a month!

 

How do I edit the images?

Simply choose an image and download it to your computer by right clicking and saving the file. Open the image in your preferred image editing program or online application.
