Beautiful Pink and Red Styled Stock Photos for Women Entrepreneurs

We just released Four NEW Styled Stock Photo Collections into the Haute Chocolate Styled Stock Library! I'm so excited about these collections because they make it so incredibly easy to build a beautiful and professional looking brand - in literally minutes. 

These Valentines Day inspired styled stock photos work for any time of the year! The stylish and sophisticated images are perfect for wedding and event planners looking to create a more cohesive and polished website and social media presence. They're also great for product creators who are looking for stylish product mockups for invitations, cards, mugs and prints and bloggers, graphic designers, and web designers who want to build beautiful websites and create stunning visuals. Exclusively from Haute Chocolate.

Between the four collections there are over 130 feminine styled stock photos in a pink, red and gold color palette.

These images are perfect for wedding and event planners, invitation and card designers, and boss ladies who have stylish & sophisticated brands!

Here's a preview of each of the new collections...

1 / Celebrations

We went all out styling this party scene with gorgeous blooms, pretty desserts, and a complete table setting.  These images are perfect for dressing up your social media, website images, and for event/wedding planners!


2 / Product Mockups

We've had lots of requests for more mockups and they're here! We have all new invitation/card mockups, mug mockups, and frame mockups in this collection.

Colorful Fruit Styled Stock Photos

Every once in a while a collection surprises me by how fun it is to shoot and how much I like the images. Well, this brightly styled collection was one that I instantly fell in love with!

Although my brand colors are very neutral (hello white, black, and gold), I actually love a lot of color and strive to find ways to incorporate it more into my life and my visuals.

These colorful images command attention and they're perfect for sales graphics, website headers and really anywhere you want people to #stopthescroll!

Our members have been asking for more healthy food options in our stock photos, so I decided to create some dedicated Fruit & Veggie Collections, which we just added to the library. We'll also be using more healthy food options throughout our stock photos so that everyone has options when using the images. 

Don't fret if you love dainty desserts, there will be plenty of those! But, if you love fruit and healthy meals, more of those are on the way, too!

Here's a look at the bright, colorful and cheerful images we just added to the Fruit Styled Stock Collection!
